Calvin International University is a private, comprehensive institution committed to challenging an supporting students intellectually, spiritually, socially, culturally, and physically.
Calvin International University is founded on a free mercy and grace tradition based upon Biblical principles and the conviction that individuals have freedom of conscience before God. Calvin International University integrates theological education with Christ-centered transformation as it equips men and women for ministry in the church and the world.
The Scripture of the Old and New Testaments, as originally given of God, are the infallible record of the perfect, final
and authoritative revelation of his work and will, together sufficient in themselves as the rule of faith and practice.
Calvin International University believes God’s saving revelation has been supremely made in Jesus Christ. The Bible is the complete and authentic record of that revelation. We are committed to both the Old and New Testaments
as God’s infallible message for the church and the world.
The Scriptures are foundational to the education process
at Calvin International University.
Calvin International University builds community through shared faith.
As students, staff, faculty, and administration, we identify ourselves as community. We express community through loving relationship, classes(teaching site), Spiritual
Formation groups, social events, conferences, prayer cells, and joint ministry experiences as we work and live together. Within this environment of support and challenge,
it is possible for us to grow inwardly, in our relationship
with God and others, and in our outlook on the world.
Calvin International University believes that Spiritual Formation is at the heart of all we do. Spiritual Formation
is the process of nurturing an intimate relationship with
God, encompassing heart, soul, and mind. Spiritual Formation is obedience to the Word of Christ and an intentional commitment to grow, study, pray, and be held accountable for our life and witness, both before God and one another.

in teaching; professional development through continuing education and research; and service
to the church and the world.
