About Faith Christian University
What began as a modest Bible institute in 1995 in Orlando, Florida by Drs. Bud and Faith Fredrick, has continued offering students quality higher education that revolves around the teachings of the Gospel. As more like-minded teachers in theology joined our cause, the institution affiliated with a leading Christian University and grew to become an extension campus and soon after to become Faith Christian University. We are proud of our dedicated teachers who contributed to the quick expansion that FCU has been successful in achieving within a relatively short period of time.
At our university campus, students will have the opportunity to choose between our Bible and Theology, Ministry, Christian Counseling and the Christian Leadership programs, all of which have been designed to deliver exceptional education based on the principles of the Gospel. Through all the programs we offer, Faith Christian University has made it possible for people of all ages to learn how to live a theologically balanced and spiritually charged life, while still playing an important role in their households, communities, countries and indeed, the world.
