Consider some of the benefits of attending a Christian college that values the authority of God's Word and supports the Christian home and local church.
Christian education as seen in the scriptures is the life-long process of getting to know the God of the Bible and learning to live according to His will.

"Someone could spend eternity in Heaven because you took the time to learn a foreign language. God has brought the mission field to us, so why not learn Spanish?"
This past semester, Mrs. Miriam Marriott, wife to MBU President Dr. Marty Marriott, joined the Spanish program—as a student.

"Maranatha Baptist University: Distinctively Baptist"
Baptist heritage—it’s as much a part of Maranatha as oxygen is to the air we breathe. In fact, each student who earns a four-year degree from the College takes a class covering the Baptist tenets. Dr. Saxon, church historian and Maranatha Bible professor, has taught the class every semester since the fall of 2004 (the [Continue Reading...]

Maranatha is a Christ honoring university. It teaches a biblical worldview while equipping students to be prepared in their field of service. One of the things that I most appreciate about Maranatha is its strong local church emphasis. I can't think of a better place for a young person to go as they pursue building their future.

This another Fundamentalist institution in the WORST of their abusive, rigid, graceless, and overbearing traditions. When I confronted their president and VP (Marty Marriott & & Matthew Davis) with pervasive and compelling first hand evidence of the sexual abuse of children at Maranatha, their tactic was to try to continue their bullying of the victim and family, and to circle the wagons and tell me it was none of my business. The victim here was 16 years old and directly BLAMED by Maranatha for being seduced by a teacher, the whole family then unceremoniously thrown out on their ear. This a HORRID institution that has a dark and disturbing history. I wrote the book, "Profaned Pulpit -- the Jack Schaap Story," and I am more than familiar with these kinds of Independent Fundamental Baptist institutions. Maranatha is cut from that same wretched cloth.

Maranatha is a small conservative Christian college where the the commands and principles of the Bible are used to guide their education. Students are held to a number of rules, however, they are not as restrictive or controlling as many equivalent Christian colleges. With their regional accreditation and positive standing in national school comparisons, students graduating from Maranatha are competitive in the job market. Maranatha offers a variety of degrees in Education, Music, Ministry, Nursing, Business, and other fields as they are able. Students also have an opportunity to participate in sports, ROTC, drama, and ministry in local churches. The school isn't perfect, but it offers young Christian men and women and opportunity to obtain higher education and prepare themselves for their future career while strengthening their walk with the Lord.

Went to this college right after being abused by my boyfriend trying to find answers and the Dean of women said "that it was my fault I was abused by my boyfriend I asked for it" she also said that I had no right to have any confidence or happiness in my life. Afterwards I was treated poorly by the kids which they just sat and watched as me and other people were bullied. One room mate said she "could care less if I was dead" then after watching several kids get in trouble and the people in charge just turned there head, I get in trouble once and the Dean of women kicks me out for going off campus without permission. This college does not show forth the love of Christ and the people in charge do a very poor job of being there for the kids. Do not send your kid here unless you don't want them to have a good college experience

**I wanted to give this a 4.5 but I'll give the conservative number since it has to be 4 or 5** I recently graduated from here. I really appreciated the degree I got from this school (now University - go MBU!), the godly staff and faculty, and the friends and relationships I've made here. No, it certainly is not perfect as anyone who has stayed here can attest to. But to expect a perfrect school would be unrealistic and utopian this side of Heaven. I do believe the staff have a heart to lead others to become godly leaders in their communities, churches, and around world. Were I see them struggle, I think they emphasize corporate ideals more so than individual application based on biblical truth that relates to the student body as a whole, but since my freshman year I have seen this gap begin to narrow with some of the changes they have made and the new staff that have come on board. I think MBU has the opportunity to becoming a great University and it already has done a lot of great things to get there. Time will show whether or not they succeed and remain faithful.

Communistic and effective in keeping it's students immersed in ignorance and isolated from the real world. A true brainwashing factory
