Philosophy of Education
- The Rochester University is a Christian University; the Bible is the heart of the curriculum. The absolute inerrancy and authority of the Scripture are paramount. We believe that the tools of exegesis are essential in preparing students for the ministry, so that they may become capable expositors of the Word of God.
- Recognizing the limitations of a primarily doctrine teaching. This doctrine must be translated into practical Christian service. Therefore, our faculty must not only be highly qualified in academics and instructional methodologies, but they also must be excellent spiritual and moral examples.
- We encourage students a heart for evangelism and missions, and the integration of biblical teaching and values into every aspect of life are emphasized. It is imperative for students to be involved in practical “hands-on” ministry and mission to complement their university studies.
- Education, as the process of teaching and learning, involves the whole person, developing the knowledge, values, and skills which enable the individual to change freely.
