Community and values

Grounded by our faith


Our faith binds us as a community, builds us stronger, and makes us one of the top ranked Christian universities in the USA.

Religion is part of daily life, and you can take part in group worship, teachings and discussions. With 35 religious preferences on campus representing more than 50 countries and almost every U.S. state, Lipscomb helps you to explore your beliefs, deepen your faith and understand others.

Strength as a community

We will give you time to explore and deepen your faith. Inspiration from your peers and course leaders will help you to find direction, gain strength in your beliefs and lead a gracious faith-based life.

At Lipscomb, you’ll never feel lonely. United by our values, our strong community helps to make us who we are. Regular events remind us of this, whether we’re cheering on a Bisons sports team, or coming together in worship.

What Lipscomb students say

When I look at my faith and how it will play out in my career, I think it's a big thing that I need to include. I will include the moral aspects of it and how it helps me to be a better person. My faith also helps with my wellbeing.

My favourite thing so far at Lipscomb is chapel on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Sitting down in chapel with all your friends, just for an hour, and listening to different speakers and different people is a time to sit back, breathe and not worry about classes or studying.  It’s a moment to relax with friends.
