"Bethesda University is
a gateway to the world"
" Now is the time when the world needs well-equipped leaders for the new millennium.
Come to Bethesda with great vision and hope to become a future leader. "
I founded Bethesda University in 1976 based upon Pentecostal distinctiveness for training men and women in the Christian Faith to fulfill the redemptive task of the Great Commission. Through God’s tremendous blessings, the university has been growing steadily since its foundation. The university is approved by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education of the State of California (BPPE) and is accredited by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS) and the Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE). Both ABHE and TRACS are accrediting agencies recognized by the United States Department of Education (USDE) and by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
Bethesda University provides an education that would result in the creation of a sense of values and establishment of priorities. A growing number of our graduates are accepted to graduate schools around the world. The majorities of our graduates with degrees in music continue their studies at various graduate schools in the U.S. or actively perform in concerts and other fields in Korea.
In this new millennium, there is a growing need for Christian leaders and professionals. In this vein, Bethesda University will equip students to become leaders in the 21st Century with the exceptional education and artistic skills on a solid Christian foundation and a Pentecostal heritage.
Welcome, all of you!
