The Church’s Mission


Mission  Nugget:  Bacone College in Muskogee, Oklahoma

Almon C. Bacone founded Bacone College for the education of Native Americans according to Christian principles. Christian principles are emphasized at Bacone in order to assist students in their growth toward wholeness. However, there is no attempt to seek religious conformity from faculty, staff or students. Individuals are given the freedom to develop their own spiritual insights. The Bacone student, faculty or staff member can deepen his/her spiritual life by attending Bacone Hour every Tuesday at11 am. This hour is set-aside weekly for the Bacone community to gather together in Bacone’s historic and beautiful chapel for an hour of spiritual renewal. The program varies from a traditional worship service to the President’s Convocation, concerts, drama, awards, and recognition. Students may also attend any one of a number of Bible Study groups that meet throughout the week at various places on campus. Bacone is also committed to an academic study of the Christian faith. All students are required to take at least one religion course. Students may take courses in Old or New Testament, the Life of Christ, or the Life of the Apostle Paul. A course on World Religions is offered as well.


A Prayer for Bacone College

Gracious God, we thank you for the ministry of Native Americans and others at Bacone College. As faculty and staff gather for study and worship, may they truly celebrate both rich tribal traditions and the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. May those who attend the college not only be trained for useful careers, but also be blessed with experiences which will enable them to witness in their living to the love and promises of Christ. May the years they spend at Bacone help them to make a positive impact for good in this challenging world. These things we ask in the name of our loving and caring Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
