Your Family’s Faith and Values Are Important Here

Houghton will affirm and grow your student’s Christian faith throughout their college experience. With worship and Bible study opportunities available every day, our goal is that every student is never more than a few hours away from a chance to be reminded that God loves them. A few more details you should know:

Houghton is an institution of The Wesleyan Church (though our students come from more than 32 Christian denominations).

Here is what we believe.

All employees at Houghton are believers and have agreed to live by A Vision of Our Common Life. You’ll see that manifest in the classroom, on the athletic field, and in every area of your student’s interactions with this community.
