An education at SAGU is based around seven core values: Bible-based education, Pentecostal distinction, spiritual formation, academic excellence, mission mindedness, servant leadership, and community and personal wellness.
SAGU academics will challenge you and shape you intellectually and spiritually as you learn how your field relates to your Christian purpose.
