Educating imaginative, resilient leaders for God's changing world.

Growing into Being a Beloved Community

At Columbia, people of faith seek to witness to God's creative power, redemptive action, transforming justice, and reconciling love, in a pluralistic society and interdependent world. We understand Christian faith to include worship of God, faithfulness to Jesus Christ, cultivation of the mind, disciplines of the Christian life, ministries of proclamation, nurture, compassion, and justice, expression of faith through the arts, and participation in the life of the Church. Therefore, all that we say and do in our daily life together is important to our formation as spiritual leaders.
