In the fall of 1914, Clifton Fowler launched a tiny school with a bold vision. Denver Bible Institute opened in a renovated plumbing shop, with just a stove, a piano, a teacher’s desk, and a few chairs. Two full-time students joined Fowler in those first days, but Fowler’s vision has multiplied many times over.
Denver Bible Institute transitioned to a liberal arts college in 1945, becoming Rockmont College a few years later. In 1985, Rockmont merged with Western Bible College, and in 1989 with Colorado Baptist University.
One hundred years later, Colorado Christian University is home to more than 5,000 students. Our education models range from a residential campus in Lakewood, Colorado, to adult and graduate programs delivered at regional centers and through global online programs.
Watch as members of the University community share highlights of our 100 year history and congratulate CCU on this accomplishment.
