Biola University is a private Christian college, located in La Mirada in Los Angeles County, California. It offers a variety of undergraduate and professional programs, including nursing, psychology, science and math. There are also many Bible programs, all of which are based on evangelical Christianity. All students are required to take 30 units of Bible classes, regardless of their major. Originally founded in 1908 as the Bible Institute of Los Angeles, it was renamed Biola College in 1949, and assumed its current name in 1981. Its stated mission is "biblically-centered education, scholarship, and service: equipping men and women in mind and character to impact the world for the Lord Jesus Christ."
As with other Evangelical Christian groups, it is the offical position of Biola University that "all those who receive Jesus Christ as their Savior and their Lord, and who confess Him as such before their fellow men, become children of God and receive eternal life ... [and] all those who persistently reject Jesus Christ in the present life shall be raised from the dead and throughout eternity exist in the state of conscious, unutterable, endless torment of anguish."
