CLC recognizes that learning and instruction are at the core of the Christian faith. The Scripture says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction” (Proverbs 1:7 NKJV). The college asserts that a Biblical worldview reinforces inquiry and attainment of knowledge. CLC maintains that faith and inquiry serve as the bedrock of a student who will fulfill the mission of the College. Building upon the foundation of both faith and inquiry, students achieve mastery of outcomes that embody the spirit and reality of the institution.
The awarding of a bachelor degree requires the completion of 120 semester credits.

Students fulfill the lower division requirements for the Bachelor of Arts degree by earning an Associate of Arts degree in the same discipline. In this, CLC currently offers a total of six undergraduate degree programs in which a student may enroll. These degrees are nested in three areas of study: Bible and Theology, General Ministry, and Business Administration.
