  • Biblical authority

  • Integrity
  • Teamwork

Our Philosophy:

We at Kenya Highlands University believe that:

  1. The lifelong undertaking of study is a sacred gift given by god for the pursuit of goodness, truth and beauty.
  2. The foundation of sound learning is rooted in a high view of scripture as god’s infallible word wherein all truth is revealed by God through Christ “in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
  3. The focus of proper education is the development of a person’s humanity as a unique being created in the image of god, and by his grace enabled to achieve humanity’s intended purpose of reflecting his glory through a personal commitment to Jesus Christ as both saviour and sanctifier of heart and life.
  4. The University experience should sharpen interpersonal communication skills in order to provide greater understanding of one’s self, others, and God so we may become more effective agents of redemption and transformation in the world.
  5. Christian liberal arts education should prepare students to assume the rights and responsibilities that apply to our local and global cultures, resulting in service to mankind, and to that end we strive to prepare global christian leaders for tomorrow’s world.
  6. We would also affirm our commitment to holistic education through the maturation of personhood which results from knowledge and skills which are dedicated to breadth of understanding and depth of coverage in diverse disciplines grounded in the tradition of Orthodox Christian thought.
  7. Our steadfast commitment to the abiding Wesleyan-Armenian perspective of sin, grace, and the possibility of full salvation as the philosophical and theological foundation for exploration and investigation into perennial questions concerning the intellectual, spiritual, and physical dimensions of human existence.
  8. The value in freedom of inquiry within a diversity of enduring christian and cultural traditions whereby students may explore and appreciate others and their values without compromising the college values and ethos, and carry out our christian vision without coercion.

That both the Old and New Testaments constitute the divinely inspired Word of God, inerrant in the originals, and the final authority for faith and practice.
That there is one God, eternally existent in the Holy Trinity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each with personality and deity.
That the Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, manifested in the flesh through the virgin birth, died on Calvary for the redemption of the human family, all of whom may be saved from sin through faith in Him.
That man, although created by God in His own image, fell into sin through disobedience and “so death passed upon all men, for all have sinned.” (Romans 5:12)
That there is salvation for the human soul, including the new birth, and a subsequent work of God in the soul, a crisis, wrought by faith, whereby the heart is cleansed from all sin and filled with the Holy Spirit. This gracious experience is retained by faith as expressed in a constant obedience to God’s revealed will, thus giving us a perfect cleansing moment by moment. (I John 1: 7-9)
That the Church is the body of Christ, that all who are united by faith in Christ are members of the same, and that having thus become members one of another, it is our solemn covenant duty to fellowship with one another with pure and fervent hearts.
That our Lord Jesus Christ in His literal resurrection from the dead is the living guarantee of the resurrection of all human beings; the believing saved to conscious eternal joy, and the unbelieving lost to conscious eternal punishment.
That our Lord Jesus Christ, in fulfillment of His own promise, both angelically and apostolically attested, will personally return in power and great glory.
