Our Mission: Louisiana College is a Christ-centered community committed to academic excellence where students are equipped for lives of learning, leading, and serving.

Welcome to Louisiana College: Your College. Your Future.

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” - Jeremiah 29:11

Louisiana College is a private, Baptist coeducational college of liberal arts and sciences with selected professional programs. The campus is located in Pineville, Louisiana, and the college is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate, bachelors, and masters degrees. Questions about the accreditation of Louisiana College may be directed in writing to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, GA 30033-4097, by calling (404) 679-4500, or by using information available on SACSCOC’s website (www.sacscoc.org).

The college is located on an 81-acre campus with a total of 25 academic and residential buildings. Most of the students at Louisiana College come from Central Louisiana, but many states and several foreign countries are represented in the current student body. The faculty and staff of Louisiana College genuinely care for the students. Their primary concern is to enhance student learning and to encourage the student’s Christian growth. Approximately two-thirds of the faculty hold terminal degrees in their academic discipline.

The college was chartered in 1906 as a non-profit corporation with the object “to own, operate and conduct a Baptist college... to foster Christian education.” Louisiana College is affiliated with the Louisiana Baptist Convention.

Join us November 10th and 11th as we hear from guest speaker, Ken Ham.
November 10 at 6pm in Guinn Auditorium
November 11 at 11am in Guinn Auditorium
A biblical apologist, Ken gives numerous faith-building talks to tens of thousands of children and adults each year on such topics as the reliability of the Bible, how compromise over biblical authority has undermined society and even the church (which is seeing a massive exodus of young people), witnessing more effectively, dinosaurs, “races,” and so on. Ken’s emphasis is on the relevance and authority of the book of Genesis to the life of the average Christian, and how compromise on Genesis has opened a dangerous door regarding how the culture and church view biblical authority. His Australian accent, keen sense of humor, captivating stories, and exceptional PowerPoint/Keynote illustrations have made him one of North America’s most effective Christian communicators. Ken is also able to reflect on some of the “hot button” topics of our day (e.g., the breakdown of the society and the family unit, gay “marriage,” the attack by secularists on religious liberty, school violence, creation/evolution in public schools, abortion, homosexual behavior, lawlessness, and so on and relate them to the book of Genesis. In addition, he provides biblical and scientific answers to some of the most difficult questions people ask about the Christian faith.
LC’s 7th Annual Values & Ethics Series.

Fall 2021 Chapel is held on Tuesdays at 11 a.m. in Guinn Auditorium.

As we deal with the effects of COVID-19 for yet another academic year, we will allow students the option to participate in ministry and chapel gatherings in-person or online. Please note the online option will require a 1,000-word essay per event and will be due within 48 hours after the conclusion of the event, program, etc. All of the semester's ministry events will be embedded into Canvas and essays will need to be uploaded there accordingly.

Additional details for students will be shared per event over the course of the next semester as an event draws near. Stand by for further details. For questions, please contact joshua.dara@lacollege.edu or justin.langford@lacollege.edu.
