With the certainty of our faith, we serve the good of all. With the experiences of our past, we plan for the future. We believe that when you know your gifts, your God, and your direction, you confidently welcome what comes next. As the world evolves, Lipscomb will always look for more ways to live out our ideals. What will never change, however, is our commitment to intentionally, courageously, and graciously follow God's will.Lipscomb University is a Christian community of scholars, dedicated to excellence in learning, leading and serving, where students prepare for success today, tomorrow and forever.
