Faithful to the Lutheran Tradition
You cannot prepare a more dependable treasure for your children than an education in the liberal arts.
These were the words of Martin Luther, spoken 500 years ago. Concordia University is committed to delivering a liberal arts education in the Lutheran tradition. We hope to prepare students to live as men and women whose Christian freedom inspires and enables service to others. We foster an intellectual pursuit of that which is true, a moral commitment to that which is good, and an aesthetic appreciation of that which is beautiful.
At Concordia Irvine, we are dedicated not only to teaching certain subjects, but to shaping a coherent and comprehensive view of the world, of humanity, and of the God who created and redeemed both. It is this faithfulness to this mission and this heritage that makes Concordia graduates wise, honorable and cultivated citizens. They become citizens prepared to serve God’s world and proclaim God’s word.
Our Lutheran tradition fosters an environment of inclusiveness for all. Concordia is for anyone who believes they have been called by Christ, as well as those who may be curious about our view of God. We honor others by including them, allowing them the freedom to interpret and come to their own conclusions.
