Our Identity: Northwestern College is a Christian college in the Reformed tradition, founded in 1882 and affiliated with the Reformed Church in America. We are committed to providing a Christian liberal arts education in the context of community among learners on campus and online. We offer bachelor's degrees in traditional and professional programs, as well as graduate degrees and certificate programs.
Our mission: Northwestern College is a Christian academic community engaging students in courageous and faithful learning and living that empowers them to follow Christ and pursue God’s redeeming work in the world. We approach learning and scholarship in conversation with John Calvin’s moving depiction of the “two books” of revelation, Scripture and natural knowledge. As Calvin writes: “Nearly all the wisdom we possess, that is to say, true and sound wisdom, consists of two parts: the knowledge of God and of ourselves.” To which he adds, “in the first place, no one can look upon himself without immediately turning his thoughts to the contemplation of God, in whom he “lives and moves” (Institutes, I.1.1). The most important thing to take from this classic piece of Reformed theol...ogy is this: our very capacity to learn is itself a remarkable gift from God. Our commitment to pursue excellence in teaching students to live lives of meaning and purpose is grounded in the biblical claim that “all things have been created through him and for him” (Colossians 1:13-14; 16).
