What Students Are Saying

4.46 Average Rating
Emmaus is a no nonsense bible based college with an emphasis on the bible. It is a great place to learn more about the word of God and how to apply it to our every day lives. It also has a small student population which is great for getting to know one another.
emmaus bible college is unashamed of christ. from what i have experienced, i think emmaus's goal is to honor yahweh while preparing its students to be not only well-equipped as lifelong students of the word, but also men and women of character who serve christ regardless of their chosen vocation. everyone at emmaus studies bible (our one-year bible certificate program is popular), but as an accredited college, the school also offers four-year degrees in a variety of practical occupations such as business and elementary education.

Emmaus is a wonderful place to attend college, and I would highly recommend it. It is a great place to grow spiritually, academically, and socially. Though it is small, it is nice because everyone feels like one big family.

Emmaus is a great school for students who are looking to strengthen their walk with The Lord. The professors and staff truly care about their students. There is also a great sense of community within the campus!
