A Message From Our President

Greetings from Clearwater Christian College. I am grateful that you are taking time to investigate our college and the liberal arts opportunities we offer on our beautiful Florida campus. Deciding where you will go to college is a significant life choice. Our catalog and college website are designed to provide you with the information critical for this decision. It is my personal prayer that the Lord will give you the wisdom and understanding that you will need to work through this process. As you review our materials, keep in mind our mission and how we approach a Christ-centered liberal arts education.

The mission statement of Clearwater is a Word-focused, great commission-oriented, and great command directed pursuit of excellence in liberal arts education. The College's purpose statement declares a commitment to sound doctrine and long discipleship. The life-to-life learning statement and the core values of the College voice a commitment to scholarship, discipleship, and servant-leadership. Our mission, purpose, doctrinal statement, and core values are all the ways we express our submission to the authority of God's Word in offering you an excellent liberal arts education.

Historically, a liberal arts education is designed to prepare you for life. At Clearwater Christian College our Christian liberal arts degrees are structured to equip you for a gospel-driven life. The good news of the gospel tells us that in Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. In addition, it warns us not to become the captive of any philosophy not according to Christ. This gospel-driven life includes a focus on Christ, His Word, and His grace. The Clearwater faculty will competently instruct you by speaking the gospel into each part of your liberal arts education. At Clearwater you will not be spoiled with a philosophy or worldview apart from Christ.

The liberal arts education and biblical focus of Clearwater is coupled with a healthy student life focus. At Clearwater we are committed to building a genuine sense of community and accountability through a variety of activities. So whether you are a resident student or a commuter we promise to serve and encourage you in a Christ-like manner.

Satisfied in Christ,
John F. Klem, Th.D.
