Who We Are As Adventists
Owned and operated by Kettering Medical Center, Kettering College is an integral part of the educational mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The Seventh-day Adventist Church believes in the inspiration of the Bible, the record of creation, the divinity of Christ, his saving work at Calvary, and his second coming.
We believe God desires the very best of us and wants us to model our lives after his teaching and will. Here, we emphasize the importance of spiritual, intellectual, and physical growth to ensure well-balanced personal development. God invites us to make a difference in this world. As a healthcare professional, the difference you can make for people will be very significant.
While at Kettering College, you may experience some campus practices that are new to you.
In your classes, you will have opportunities to discuss spiritual issues relating to healing, ethics, and personal growth.
Your faculty may lead devotional thoughts and/or prayer as you begin class.
You will be expected to join corporate worship experiences during convocations and monthly Assemblies.
You are strongly encouraged to abstain from illicit drugs, alcohol, and tobacco, and you are strictly prohibited from possessing and/or using them on campus and at College-sponsored events.
You will notice that the biblical Sabbath, a prominent belief of the Seventh-day Adventist faith, is observed from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday. Campus activities are different and ministry opportunities are more plentiful during Sabbath hours.
You will find opportunities to serve others in local communities or distant mission outposts.
We encourage you to ask questions and to keep an open mind to the religious diversity that you will experience here. Inquire about the different faith expressions of our student body, faculty, and staff. Make spiritual learning an important area of growth as you become a health professional.
We pray for and desire that you will find a place where you feel loved and valued, and where you are encouraged to seek God and grow into the men and women he intended us to be.
