Sacred Music and Literature at CCU

Colorado Christian University believes that the Bible is the sacred, inspired and authoritative Word of God. From the beginning of time, God has used artistic means to express parts of Himself, and as followers of Christ we are given the opportunity to express our love to God through music, literature and the study of His Word. The Sacred Music and Literature program at CCU seeks to provide students with the chance to be stewards of the gift of art that God has given us while making it a part of their academic experience.
