Who We Are
Point University, a nondenominational Christian college founded in 1937, grew out of the hopes and dreams of a group of Christian leaders who were a part of Christian churches in Georgia and the Southeast. Today, the student body is comprised of students who come from a wide array of evangelical backgrounds. The University continues to be supported by congregations like those who were a part of its founding and who are committed to being “Christians only, not the only Christians.” Point continues to thrive as a center of Christian learning because of the faithful support of individual Christians, missions ministries in local churches, and other interested groups who believe that the idea of a nondenominational Christian college is an important kingdom activity.
What We Believe
We believe in the one God, Creator of heaven and earth, who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that God the Son assumed human nature, was born of a virgin, ministered in word and miracle, died for our sin, was raised bodily from the dead, ascended to God’s right hand where he presently reigns.
We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every Christian and is presently at work in the Christian community, empowering lives of godliness and service.
We believe that the Holy Bible is inspired by God, trustworthy in its teaching, and the final authority for all matters of faith and practice.
We believe that all of humanity, due to sin, is destined for death, corruption, and separation from God apart from the redemptive work of Jesus Christ.
We believe that Jesus Christ established his church to be one holy people, to glorify God, and to carry out his saving mission among all nations.
We believe in God’s saving grace that calls for faith, repentance, confession, baptism, and new life and service through the Spirit.
We believe in the blessed hope of the second coming of Jesus Christ, who will raise the dead and judge all with justice and mercy, and in the consummation of the Kingdom of God.
