Bethany Lutheran College
Bethany Lutheran College (BLC) was founded in 1927 with the aim to provide sound, Christian education focusing on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The history of BLC dates back to 1911 when the Bethany Ladies College started with forty-four students and four faculty members. In 1927 the Norwegian Synod bought the college. It later came to be known as Evangelical Lutheran Synod (ELS). In 1945 the Bethany Lutheran Theological Seminary started as a department of the college and in 1975 it became a separate institution.
BLC is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and is also a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. BLC, being a Christian liberal arts college is committed to the Holy Scriptures and the Word of God. The Christian faith is at the root of the entire education process. BLC follows certain objectives in its operation, some of which are: ‘to grow in the grace and in the knowledge of their Lord and the Savior Jesus Christ by means of the Gospel, 'to demonstrate independent critical thinking so that they are not shaken from the eternal foundations on which their moral and spiritual growth is based', 'to experience fine arts and literature as an educated individual', and to 'demonstrate Christian stewardship with regard to their talent and abilities that they be used for the glory of God and welfare of mankind'.
