Our Mission at Malone University
The mission of Malone is to provide students with an education based on biblical faith in order to develop men and women in intellectual maturity, wisdom, and Christian faith who are committed to serving the church, community, and world.
Malone particularly declares its faith in the following Christian beliefs:
One God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The deity of Jesus Christ, in whose person are united the divine and human natures so that He is truly both God and man; His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, vicarious and atoning death; His bodily resurrection and ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory.
The present ministry of the Holy Spirit convincing sinners of sin and regenerating, sanctifying, guiding and empowering believers.
The plenary inspiration of the Scriptures, their essential unity and their inviolable authority.
The fall of man through the sin of our first parents; the death and hopelessness of man apart from the work of redemption wrought by Jesus Christ.
Reconciliation with God through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ by repentance for sin and receiving forgiveness and new life by faith in Jesus Christ as Savior.
Sanctification of the reconciled believer through the operation of the Holy Spirit by the complete dedication of believers to God and the receiving by faith of cleansing from enmity against God; by walking in daily obedience as true and fervent disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ and growing more like Him in maturity of character; and by following the guidance of the Holy Spirit and receiving His empowerment for continuous victory over sin and service unto God.
Our obligation to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, making disciples of all men everywhere.
The spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
The immortality of the soul, the resurrection of the body, the final judgment of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ, resulting in the eternal fellowship of the righteous with God, and the eternal separation of the wicked from God.
