MBU CARES ABOUT TRUTH
I want parents and students to know we will stay true to our foundation—to the fundamentals of the faith that are as important to them as they are to us. We will always emphasize the local church. Those are non-negotiables. There aren’t going to be sudden shifts in what we believe or how we apply those beliefs. We’re going to stay the course that has been laid out for us over the last 50 years.
