Spiritual Life at Belmont

Spiritual life at Belmont

Your purpose is to discover how your talents and passions meet the world’s needs.

Our purpose is to help you make that discovery.

We believe every student was created by God for a purpose, and that Belmont exists to help students discover that purpose and develop their gifts so they can engage and transform the world.  The largest ecumenical Christian university in America, Belmont upholds Jesus Christ as the measure for all we do.  As a Christian community of learning and service, we strive to help students grow intellectually and in compassion, courage, and faith. 


We show Christian hospitality to every student who comes to Belmont, be they of another faith or still searching.  No one needs to change who they are to be part of the Belmont family; we love our students just as they are.

Yet we would not withhold from any student what we at Belmont have found to be most important.  First, in order to understand God and ourselves, as well as the disciplines of art, music, literature, and history, we need to understand the Bible.  Consequently, all students take courses on the Old and New Testaments. 

Students attend Christian Faith & Tradition convocations and are invited to take part in our voluntary Chapel, which is held Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10 a.m. In addition, Spiritual Life Assistants work in every freshmen residence hall, and we have 19 Faith Development Organizations on campus.

Belmont’s Vision 2020 commits us to "exemplify our Christian faith by responding to the imperative expressed in James 1:22, which states “Do not merely listen to the word… Do what it says.”  Consequently, we offer dozens of mission opportunities locally, nationally and internationally.

The table is set, and we look forward to sharing a rich feast of learning and service with you.
