Who We Are
Inspiration for excellence and life long friendships:
“Nyack College has allowed me to grow both academically and spiritually. Nyack’s teachers and administrators truly care for their students; they do everything in their power to ensure that their students excel and learn all that is taught to them. In addition to having a learning environment that is geared toward motivating students for future success, Nyack also has a wonderful student body. This is my senior year at Nyack and I can honestly say that I have developed lifetime friendships. Nyack College means preparation for success in the church, the community, and the workplace. If you are interested in receiving a Christian education in an environment that will prepare you to do all that God has called you to do with excellence, Nyack College is the place for you!”

Adult education and opportunity for career advancement:
“When I came to Nyack, I was unhappy in my position, but wanted to stay with my company since I was only 15 months from being able to collect a pension. For six months I had been applying for jobs internally, but because of the extra confidence I had gained from the Organizational Management Program for Adult Students, I started applying for positions I would not have otherwise considered. Throughout the interview process, I used elements of the diversity portfolio and final research paper, in particular, the data collection and executive summary (the Chi Squared hypothesis testing really impressed them!). And when answering interview questions, I spoke about business at a higher level -- about shareholder value and strategic vision -- rather than my individual contribution over the years.
As a result, I was offered, and accepted, a position in our new corporate headquarters. My new job will involve assisting internal clients in communicating with their employees through the human resources department. I will also be starting the Nyack College MBA program in the spring. And last but not least, the salary is $100,000!”

Education with a Christian Worldview:
“My faith and career are connected: in fact, they are inseparable. That is why I chose to study at Alliance Graduate School of Counseling (AGSC). I like how AGSC professors model being decidedly Christian in the mental health field and in the classroom. Class discussion centers on case studies that incorporate faith and learning. My fellow students have become my network of Christian colleagues in the New York metropolitan area. Integrating Biblical principles with the best information the secular world has to offer has given me a renewed sense of purpose in my work, and has deepened my understanding of God, others, and myself.”
Andrea, Class of 2010, Alliance Graduate School of Counseling
“I chose to pursue my degree in nursing at Nyack College because I was compelled by the fact that Nyack incorporates a Christian worldview into the nursing discipline. This is important to me because I want to practice nursing with Jesus in mind. As a Christian, I am called to demonstrate Christ in all aspects of my life, and I believe Nyack will show me how!”Tahira, Class of 2014, Nyack College Rockland Campus
Statement of Faith
There is one God, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died upon the cross, the just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures. He is now at the right hand of the Majesty on high as our great High Priest. He will come again to establish His Kingdom of righteousness and peace.
The Holy Spirit is a divine person, sent to indwell, guide, teach, empower the believer, and convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.
The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of man. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.
Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God; he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. The portion of the impenitent and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment; and that of the believer, in everlasting joy and bliss. Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; and those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become the children of God.
It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified wholly, being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service. This is both a crisis and a progressive experience wrought in the life of the
believer subsequent to conversion.
Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body. Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil are taught in the Scriptures and are privileges for the church in this present age.
The Church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church, which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the gospel to all nations.
The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel, and observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord's Supper.
There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life; for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment.
The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal, visible, and premillennial. This is the believer's blessed hope and is a vital truth that is an incentive to holy living and faithful service.
