University description (as per official university website)
The Mission of Life Pacific College is to support the advance of the Kingdom of God through education and training. The college nurtures the development of ministering persons within a Pentecostal / Charismatic life-experience in God so that men and women are prepared to evangelize and disciple the nations and to serve and lead the Body of Christ in general and the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel in particular.
This preparation is accomplished in the students’ lives through:
• the acquisition of biblical and theological knowledge,
• the pursuit of general studies from a Christian perspective,
• the development of character and
• the formation of ministry and leadership skills.
Life Pacific College, formerly L.I.F.E. Bible College, was born in the midst of a revival. In 1923, Aimee Semple McPherson, an evangelist, established a training center to equip men and women to become the evangelists, missionaries, pastors and teachers so desperately needed to bring people to Christ and to establish people in God’s Word. Because she recognized the need for laborers to reap and nurture the harvest of souls, she opened The Lighthouse of International Foursquare Evangelism, L.I.F.E. Bible College, an interdenominational Bible institute, dedicated to international evangelism. Both current students and alumni continue to embrace the heritage of L.I.F.E. Bible College.
The College thrives today as a testimony to her obedience to Christ's command: "Go therefore and teach all nations..." LIFE has grown from a two-year institute to one of the major Pentecostal/Charismatic Bible colleges. We continue our solid commitment to the evangelical Pentecostal message. For over 75 years Life Pacific College has offered the finest in training and equipping for ministry-centered education in the Word of God and the life-giving testimony of Jesus Christ.
