Vision 2025 Introduction
Forming scholars--pursuing truth, seeking wisdom
Our scholarly enterprise is based upon the premise that there is a unity to truth, for all truth is God's truth—ultimately incarnate in Jesus Christ. At NNU we participate in the search for Truth, already knowing the One who is Truth.
Nurturing disciples, living in the great commandments
Serving the Church, covenant partners in the great commission
The University is both an extension and instrument of the Church. The University shares in the mission of the Church—living counter-culturally, seeking to incarnate the presence and practices of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Shaping the culture, God's creative agents
Redeeming the world, God's redemptive agents
We seek to actively participate in the restoration of the world. There is no higher, more noble, cause. Ultimately, there is no other cause. It is the cause of Christ, to make all things new. Therefore, we want our students to know, understand and experience the world—this incredible creation with all its wonder, with all of its hurt—and see themselves as agents of hope.
