The mission of Criswell College is to provide ministerial and professional higher education for men and women preparing to serve as Christian leaders throughout society, while maintaining an institutional commitment to biblical inerrancy.
Our vision of Criswell College for the next five years is of an institution making consistent, deliberate, measurable progress toward being one of the best theological colleges in the country, while also laying the groundwork for becoming an outstanding small liberal arts college. This transition will be made without compromise to the doctrinal basis of the core values on which the school was founded. An exceptional faculty leading a variety of disciplines and a well-trained staff will find unity in the college's statement of faith and in a commitment to help every student become a graduate. In the longer term, graduates will be capable of influencing the broader culture much as their predecessors have already influenced the Southern Baptist Convention and the Christian community.
