Why a Reformed Bible College at Ligonier?: To Provide a New Haven for Learning the Reformed Faith
When we reflect on the reasons for introducing the Undergraduate Studies division of Ligonier Academy of Biblical and Theological Studies, we find that that rationale is better understood by thinking about the school’s identity as a place for in-depth instruction and fellowship.
More than 38 years ago when Ligonier Ministries was founded, the world was filled with challenges to biblical faith. Christians who sought to be equipped to answer these challenges had few options short of going to seminary. Dr. R. C. Sproul saw the need to offer an accessible, practical bridge of learning for the growing Christian, and Ligonier Ministries was born as a haven for devoted learners and passionate followers of Christ.
As it was then, so it is today. The founding of Ligonier Academy of Biblical and Theological Studies brings Ligonier Ministries full circle by drawing on its study center heritage and establishing a new place for in-depth instruction and fellowship in central Florida. Why do this? Because we know that when the Bible is taught clearly, God is seen in all of His majesty and holiness, and hearts are conquered, minds are renewed, and communities are transformed.
