The Providence faculty exhibit a diversity of theological backgrounds, including Anglican, Baptist, Mennonite, Pentecostal, Free Church, and others.

The goal of a Providence education is to enable students to understand and support their own traditions better. We offer opportunity for each student to understand their own denominational distinctives in relation to Christians of other backgrounds.
