What We Believe

The Christian faith is central everywhere at Houghton. It is present in the classroom and the chapel, but also in the athletic fields, residence halls, and practice rooms.

While many describe themselves as Christian, the word means different things to different people. Here’s what we mean when we say that Houghton is a Christian place.
