Who We Are

Legacy Christian University is an independent, private Christian college. We are evangelical with a Baptist heritage and history. Our Mission is to educate students to become kingdom-focused leaders who impact their communities for Christ. Our Vision is to be an institution of higher education founded on Christian values and a Biblical Worldview offering degrees to Christian students in the Tennessee Valley.

Accreditation

Legacy Christian University holds Applicant Status with the Commission on Accreditation of the Association for Biblical Higher Education, an institutional accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation, to grant degrees at the Associate, Bachelor and Master levels.

Our Worldview

Every institution of higher education develops or adopts a worldview. LCU teaches from a Christian worldview. James Sire defines a worldview as

“A commitment, a fundamental orientation of the heart, which can be expressed as a story or in a set of presuppositions that we hold about the basic constitution of reality, and that provides the foundation on which we live and move and have our being.”

LCU believes that all areas of life are viewed through the prism of a Christian worldview. LCU considers itself blessed by God to be ranked among those institutions of higher education that develop, maintain and teach from a Christian worldview.

WE WORK HARD TO GIVE YOU

Testimonials

  • “For me, teaching at LCU is far more gratifying than teaching at any other school in the country because I know the students are here because they know they are called and want to be here. It has been a blessing for me, and it has also been one of my ways of meeting the needs of my neighbors.”

  • Legacy Christian University has not only inspired me in education, but has lead me to a deeper, more personal walk with the Lord. The professors teach in an engaging way and leave me feeling energetic about the things you have learned. I never thought I would learn this much about the Bible in such an exciting way, I am thankful for the things God has taught me through Legacy.
