Welcome to Nebraska Christian College.

I am thankful that you stopped by our Web site. You will feel a heartbeat in each of the pages you click to. It is a heartbeat from heaven. It is the same heartbeat that you will feel in John 3:16, and Matthew 9:36-37.

Throughout the history of Nebraska Christian College students have come to be equipped to live a life devoted to changing their generation by knowing and declaring God’s grace. While they were here, their lives were filled with Christ-centered learning, authentic relationship, and challenging ministry experience with unforgettable mentors.

They heard the heartbeat, and their lives were changed. Their heart began to beat with the rhythm of heaven. They chose to lose their life, to gain the life that Jesus promised. It changed their vision, their behavior, their attitudes, and their priorities. Their world will never again be the same.

Would you like to hear the heartbeat of heaven and undergo a similar transformation? Would you like to see others experience the transforming power of heaven? You will discover God’s plan as you read the pages of this web-site. I encourage you to not delay your response to what God is calling you.

He has “Chosen you and appointed you- to go and bear fruit.” (John 15:16)
