Fruitland’s Associate Degree exists to glorify God, serve the local church, and fulfill the Great Commission, by developing Christian leaders who think biblically, communicate the gospel effectively, and serve in Christ’s kingdom with godly character, competence, and commitment.

Christianity is being challenged on every front and in every arena of life. Fruitland’s 2-year Associates Degree in Religion is designed to prepare students to defend the Gospel of Christ in America’s increasingly diverse religious and philosophical  context.  Students learn foundational truths of the Bible in contrast to non-Biblical worldviews.

Every Christian is a minister and every Christian should prepare to communicate the gospel wherever God has placed them, whether in a church ministry context, teaching in a Christian school, stay-at-home-mother or even and especially secular employment!
