We welcome students from a variety of backgrounds who seek to understand what it means to live in a global society and are passionate about making a difference in their communities.
The purpose of Concordia College is to influence the affairs of the world by sending into society thoughtful and informed men and women dedicated to the Christian life.
Written more than 50 years ago, the Concordia College Mission Statement continues to be a guiding force that connects our past to our future.
In particular, the mission highlights our commitment to the Lutheran academic tradition shaped by Martin Luther’s convictions. These include:
- freedom to search for truth, with nothing off limits for inquiry and critique.
- education in the liberal arts as the best preparation for leadership.
- excellence in all we do.
- the engagement of faith and learning as a creative dialogue, where inquiry and scholarship enlighten religious life and faith practice enriches the educational experience.
- intellectual humility in the face of the paradoxes and ambiguities of life.
The Lutheran theological tradition emphasizes that we are all called to serve our neighbor and care for creation in response to God’s love.
