The educational philosophy of Hanania Bible College is framed by our beliefs about the nature of truth and learning.
- Biblical/Christian Education
We recognize the final authority of the Bible in all that it affirms. The direct study of the Bible is part of every academic program at Hanania . This is educationally significant not only in Bible and theology coursework but also in general education, ministry and professional studies, and co-curricular and extra-curricular programs and activities.
- Higher Education
We are committed to providing a high-quality educational experience for every student. Students are admitted on the basis of their ability to be successful at the degree level.
- Freedom of Inquiry
We believe that all truth has God as its ultimate source and needs to be pursued with honest, thorough, and open inquiry. At the same time, we recognize the limitations of individuals in the process of determining what information is relevant and how that information should be appropriately interpreted.
- Foundation for Lifelong Learning
We believe that learning is a lifelong pursuit. Curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular experiences are designed to foster a desire for lifelong learning in the lives of students.
- Holistic Education
We seek to educate the whole person, not simply the mind. Curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities are all intended to contribute to personal growth and development in the lives of students. This holistic approach to education is articulated more specifically in the Student Life Philosophy below.
