Emmaus Bible College's Mission Statement

Emmaus Bible College is in Dubuque, Iowa, on the Mississippi River, half-way between Chicago and Des Moines. The college is regionally accredited with the Higher Learning Commission of NCA. This is a Biblical higher education center which teaches the Bible, with an emphasis on New Testament principles and the integration of a biblical worldview into vocational and general studies through college-level programs. Emmaus has a Correspondence School division, as well. Courses are available in 105 countries and in 125 languages. Emmaus has a sister institution in Australia, Emmaus Bible College, Australia.

Emmaus Bible College (USA) has about 200 full- and part-time students. Emmaus is associated with the Plymouth Brethren, a non-denominational, loose fellowship of like-minded evangelical churches. Fifty percent of the student body comes from the assemblies (Plymouth Brethren), while the other fifty percent comes from other evangelical backgrounds. Emmaus offers bachelor's degrees as well as associate degrees and certificates in Biblical and ministry-related fields. As well as degrees in Business, Nursing and Computer Science and new 2013, a two-year college transfer degree, all while getting a double major in Bible. Emmaus requires more Bible credits (45) than any other Bible college in the midwest for all their four-year degree programs. The College is in a large facility that was formerly home of Aquinas Institute of Theology, a Roman Catholic institution. The school offers men's and women's basketball, men's soccer, and women's volleyball on the intercollegiate level.
