After several years of research and the Board of Trustees' prayerful review, the University desired to adopt a name that welcomes the many students enrolled who come from many different denominations of the Christian faith as well as those who claim no faith.
On September 21, 2022, Houston Baptist University became Houston Christian University.
“Houston Christian University” epitomizes our student body and reflects the faculty, staff, alumni, and community we serve more accurately.
The University’s Foundational documents clearly reveal our convictions as an institution of higher learning have not and will not change. Our unwavering brand of traditional Christian higher education, rooted in a biblical worldview, is ever more critical in a fractured society in need of Gospel restoration. We are committed to being a distinctly Christian university and desire to welcome all Christians to benefit from our excellent academic programs.
Houston Christian University will not conform to this world and will continue to boldly glorify God by molding the next generation of educated disciples to think critically and act biblically long after they graduate.
