“Many universities abandoned their original Christian mission when they achieved academic and athletic prominence. Often, the founding principle was compromised because of financial needs and pressure from donors who did not share the founding values of the institution. We believe that God has blessed Liberty University financially so this pattern is not repeated here.”

Many believed it could not be done, but he believed that if it was Christian, it ought to be better.”
