The history of Eastern Nazarene College began when several ministers and lay persons decided to establish a Christian collegiate institute in the city of Saratoga Springs, New York. The founders had a remarkably ambitious vision: in an age when most Christian educational institutions began as Bible colleges and missionary training schools, this was designed as an integrated preparatory academy.
For over 116 years, ENC has prepared students for lives of leadership and service through a liberal arts education.
The mission of Eastern Nazarene College is to serve God, the Church, and the World by providing a quality liberal arts education to students of all ages. Consistent with its Wesleyan heritage, ENC seeks to create and maintain an environment which awakens and fosters truth, righteousness, justice and holiness as made possible by God’s transforming grace through Jesus Christ.
The mission of the college is to assist and encourage college students and alumni in developing an awareness of God-given interests, gifts, talents, skills, and abilities, and to apply (develop) them in their major, work, and ministry/service opportunities.
