Scholarship – Spirit – Service. For many years these three words have been the “mantra” of generations of students at Southwestern Christian University. These students were seeking the opportunity to pursue faith as they discovered academic potential. SCU is an exciting place to be. Since its founding in 1946, the University continues to foster a spiritually vibrant, academically rigorous, and mission-fervent community of visionaries seeking to make a difference in this world. Our vision for a Christian liberal arts education pursued from the perspective of the Biblical Christian worldview is expressed in more than 30 undergraduate degree programs, and attracts students from more than 20 different nations. Our Pentecostal blueprint for Christian living, undergirded by our core values of Scholarship, Spirit and Service, makes SCU a perfect place for preparing the total person to succeed and excel in careers, callings and in life. Our location in the City of Bethany, which is in the Metropolitan area of Oklahoma City, and our proximity to Will Rogers World Airport (OKC) and state and interstate highways, makes the SCU campus easily accessible.  Additionally, being located on the historic Route 66 is a reminder of the endless possibilities awaiting those who embrace and desire to participate in the American dream. Our continuous campus improvements and the restructuring of faculty and staff have added to the excitement of student life at SCU. In addition, our athletic teams compete in the prestigious Sooner Athletic Conference in the NAIA and allows for involvement in mission trips both locally, regionally and around the world.
