Patkai Christian College was established in 1974 as a liberal Arts College. The College firmly believes that education is for the whole man in a framework of spiritual and moral absolutes. Patkai, like every Christian College, has the difficult task of retaining its traditional stance while seeking to make its educational philosophy relevant to the world around it. Committed to the principle that the truth is revealed by God through Christ “in Whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Col. 2:3), Patkai will seek to relate its instruction to the needs of contemporary society.
The College will consciously seek to place all its activity within the framework of Biblical perspective on such critical issues as the nature of God, man, nature, and the world.
