Who We Are Guides Everything

North Greenville University exists to glorify God by cultivating graduates who are equipped to serve as transformational leaders for church and society.

Affiliated with and committed to the South Carolina Baptist Convention, North Greenville University is a co-educational liberal arts institution that provides opportunities for higher education in a Christian atmosphere. The university strives to prepare students to become better, contributing members of society by educating the whole person by integrating academic discipline, a Christian lifestyle, and an enriched cultural experience while offering students the best opportunities for spiritual growth, academic training, and Christian service. Christ must be the center of the campus for Christian education and Christian character-building. North Greenville University offers quality education in a biblically sound, Christ-centered environment.


Christ: Lord, Savior, Fully God and Fully Man

Centered: Having a specified subject as the most important or focal element

NGU exists to build transformational leaders for church and society. If Christ is not the center, our university has no true reason to exist.

Biblically Faithful

Bible: inspired by God, profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness

Faithful: true to the facts, to a standard

NGU is a contemporary representation of the unchanging truths of God’s unchanging Word. Our university aligns itself with biblical standards and authority.

Academically Excellent

Academic: based on formal study

Excellent: eminently good

NGU offers programs of learning designed to wholly honor God with our minds, producing graduates who think critically and communicate clearly.


Mission: a specific task a group is charged to pursue

Focus: adjustment for distinct vision

NGU has a distinct mission to glorify God by cultivating graduates who are equipped to serve as transformational leaders for church and society.

Every human being longs for the good life. Ancient and medieval philosophers often equated the good life
with personal happiness and the cultivation of both private and public virtue. Today, we often speak of
the good life in terms of human flourishing. Every worldview imparts a particular vision of human
flourishing. This is true of the biblical worldview.
