Belleview Christian College
Christian College, located in Westminster just north of the capital city
of Denver, Colorado, is a small institution emphasizing quality of education
and individual concern for each student. Classes are small, as is overall
enrollment. Each course has a personal, "seminar" atmosphere.
Belleview is a ministry of the Pillar
of Fire Church, a 100-year-old Bible-believing Christian denomination
in the Wesleyan tradition, teaching John Wesley's doctrine of the
power of the Holy Spirit for New Testament holiness of heart and life.
Goal of the College
Belleview is incorporated in the State of Colorado and has been in operation
"on the Hill" in Westminster since 1920. The goal of the school is to educate
Christians for service in the "priesthood of the believer" -- that is,
to build a thorough foundation in the Bible, the Word of God, undergirded
by the solid academic preparation in the Liberal Arts (such as English,
history, foreign language, and science) which is so essential to vital
living as a citizen and a Christian. In the words of St. Paul, "Do your
best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not
need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth." (2 Timothy
2:15, NIV) The King James translation has it, "Study
to show thyself approved." Our goal at Belleview is to encourage and assist
Although the school is Christian, there is no religious or doctrinal test
for entrance. Students of all faiths are admitted so long as they recognize
that they will be taught from a philosophical background which is strongly
Christian and they agree to adhere to Belleview's Lifestyle
Covenant. The theological perspective of the school is Wesleyan/Arminian.
