We believe that education and training for ministry are centered on genuine spiritual growth through discipleship, experience-based faith, and a relationship with God. Our students are instilled with a genuine hunger to grow spiritually and ongoing affection for Jesus as Lord of their life.
Every person has a unique, God-given set of gifts, talents, skills, and personality traits intended to be a blessing to the local church and the world. Students at Cottonwood College discover and develop these special gifts and abilities to fulfill their God-given calling and purpose.
We place a high value on God's Word as the final authority for life and ministry. All of our programs and courses are built firmly on the foundation of Scripture. Our students are known for being people who love the Bible and make their reading, study, and understanding of Scripture a priority.

Bodily healing and the atonement of Christ: We believe in the provision of bodily healing in the atoning work of Jesus our Savior.
