Projected Industry Growth
Our college aligns with the ancient Christian statements of the Apostles Creed and the Nicene Creed.
Lifegroup is a weekly gathering where we talk about real-life topics, learn from the Bible, build friendships, and encourage each other to live boldly for Christ in school, filmmaking, and life.
We offer classes that discuss biblical story arcs and principles that are immensely valuable in your personal and professional life.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they who are saved unto the resurrection of life and they who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
