Church of the Nazarene CCCU/IACE

Southern Nazarene University’s mission is to make Christlike disciples through higher education. Founded in 1899, Southern Nazarene University is a private, Christian, liberal arts university – a service of the Church of the Nazarene. Located on a 40-acre campus just west of Oklahoma City, SNU grew out of several small colleges committed to educating people for lives of service to God, leadership, and reconciliation toward their neighbors and within the global community.

Nazarene Heritage is prominent "Christian, service of the Church of the Nazarene, committed to training people for service to God and to one another"

"To make Christlike disciples through higher education in Christ-centered community. As a Christian community of scholars, we model the hospitality of grace, the pursuit of truth, and the practice of discipleship, all within the Wesleyan-holiness tradition, as we prepare graduates who think with clarity, act with integrity, and serve with purpose."
