1914: Two students, One teacher
What was then known as the Denver Bible Institute certainly wasn’t a large or impressive school, but with a persistent dedication to grace and truth, this modest school became a true four-year college by 1945.
At that time, the Denver Bible College had three academic schools: the College of Liberal Arts, the Theological School, and the Bible Institute. Four years later, the college grew again as the Rockmont College, the name change accompanying the founding of a new school called the Western Bible Institute.
All of the way up until 1985, these two schools were separate, and not what you would recognize as the Colorado Christian University of today. But throughout the 1980s, the need for a strong, stable Christian university in Colorado became clear, prompting Rockmont College, the Western Bible Institute, and Colorado Baptist University to merge by the end of the decade to form a bastion of Christian education influencing the entire state and beyond.
After 100 years in the making, Colorado Christian University still rests on its founding principles of grace and truth to train up the nearly 3,000 graduate and undergraduate students.
