It’s been said that you learn as much outside the college classroom as you do inside. That’s because your college years are not just a time for education but also a time for adventure.
mix some adventure in with your education!
From the Beach Party to the Turkey Trot, from outdoor adventures to talent competitions, from intramural sports to poetry clubs, there is a place for you to be yourself at Corban. When you get involved in campus life, you’ll grow not only academically and spiritually but also through the relationships you build.
Our love for God is at the heart of all we do. We encourage students to continually align their hearts with God by providing opportunities for spiritual growth in all shapes and sizes. Enjoy a night of worship, participate in service projects, or visit Corban’s prayer chapel for quiet reflection. Engage in a Bible study in your dorm or grab a friend for a time of prayer. At Corban, you will be encouraged in your walk with God and challenged to put your faith in action each day.
Chapel is held three times a week for the entire Corban community to hear, understand, and respond to what God is teaching us. This intentional time of worship, prayer, and Bible teaching gives us the opportunity to focus on our great God and His work in our lives.
Through the Reach program, students put their faith to work in community service projects focusing on hunger and housing, education and literacy, justice and dignity, or creation care. Work with organizations such as Union Gospel Mission, Habitat for Humanity, SMART, Oregon Right to Life, and Turtle Ridge Wildlife Center.
Student-led mission trips take place on every livable continent. As a Corban student, you’ll have multiple opportunities each year to share the love of Jesus around the world!
Late-night trips to Taco Bell. Friendly hall rivalries. Group study sessions. Dorm devotions. Deep conversations. Lighthearted laughter. These are just a few of the things you’ll find as part of your life in a Corban residence hall.
Each hall has a Resident Assistant to provide support, accountability and conversation, and there’s always a fellow student around to encourage you, laugh with you, and pray with you. Whether splitting a tray of nachos or helping each other study for tomorrow's history exam, Corban students are pulling for each other. This is the kind of community that results from eating, living, and studying with your neighbors, classmates, and family-away-from-home.
Student athletes receive an outstanding academic, physical and spiritual education that encourages their passion, discipline, teamwork and faith to shine through in every area of their lives. They play for love of the game, the thrill of competition, and the opportunity to glorify Jesus Christ.
Being a Warrior at Corban University is about more than just sports.
Warrior athletic teams have claimed 6 NCCAA national championships and 13 CCC conference titles. Corban is also a two-time recipient of the President’s Cup Academic Award for outstanding academic performance among student athletes.
So maybe you can’t dunk a basketball or hit a home run. Golf really isn’t for you. But Disc Golf? Pickleball? Now we’re talking! With Corban’s intramural sports, you’ll find friendly competition, recreation, fellowship, and just plain FUN! Intramural sports run throughout the school year and include soccer, flag football, volleyball, basketball, dodge ball, badminton, ping pong and more!
We understand that making the transition to college can bring challenges along with the adventure. Corban’s Student Services is here to help with your unique situation.
The Corban Parent magazine is specially designed for parents of Corban students. This magazine has valuable information letting you in on some of what your student experiences day-to-day at Corban. After looking through this magazine we hope that most, if not all, of your questions will be answered and you can rest assured your student is in good hands! Enjoy reading.
God has revealed Himself in creation, in the Scriptures, and supremely in Jesus Christ. God is the source of all truth.
the Scriptures, consisting of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, are divinely inspired and without error in the original writings. They are to be understood in their normal literary sense and serve as the final authority in all matters of faith and life.
in the one true, personal, sovereign, eternal God, who is Spirit, and is the Creator and Sustainer of all things. He exists in three equal persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
the biblical account of creation is neither allegory nor myth, but an historical account of the miraculous creative acts of God. All creation was good before the intrusion of sin and death.
Jesus Christ is true God and true man, existing as one person. He was virgin born, lived a sinless life, died on the cross, was raised physically from the dead, and has ascended into heaven.
the Holy Spirit indwells and gives life to believers, enables them to understand the Scriptures, empowers them for godly living, and gifts them for service. Some spiritual gifts are not normative for today because they were given to authenticate the Gospel and establish the early church.
God specially and directly created human beings in His image. Human life is sacred, beginning at conception. God created humans male and female and has ordained marriage as a union between one man and one woman.
the entire human race suffered spiritual death and became alienated from God and subject to physical death as a result of the disobedience of Adam, the first human.
the death of Jesus Christ was a substitutionary sacrifice for our sins. Before the creation of the universe, God sovereignly chose some from among sinful humanity to receive His grace in Christ. Salvation is received by God’s grace through faith apart from any works. Believers are saved eternally, progressively transformed into Christ-likeness in this life, and will be perfected at His coming.
the Church, the Body of Christ, began at Pentecost and is expressed in the world through local churches. Its mission is to worship God, make disciples of all peoples, and live out the Gospel until Christ returns. It observes two ordinances: believer’s baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper. The church is distinct from the state and upholds the individual’s freedom before God in matters of faith.
angels are spirit beings created to serve and worship God, that some rebelled and followed Satan, and that this rebellion was defeated at the cross.
in the imminent and glorious return of Jesus Christ, who will gather His people, raise the dead, judge the nations, establish His millennial kingdom on earth, and fulfill His promises to Israel.
in the bodily resurrection of all the dead, the unsaved to everlasting punishment and the saved to an everlasting, blessed life with God.
