Mission Statement

As a Christian university which embraces its Baptist heritage and namesake, William Carey University provides quality educational programs, within a caring Christian academic community, which challenge the individual student to excel in scholarship, leadership, and service in a diverse global society.


William Carey University is a community of learners which seeks to blend faith and learning with living. Within this unique nurturing and challenging environment, students prepare to fulfill their diverse callings in the larger global community.

The Carey Creed

Theme Verse

Each year William Carey University chooses an annual theme verse which focuses the university on a biblical concept. The theme for 2020-21 is “Be Strong and Courageous” and is based on Joshua 1:9. Following the death of Moses, Joshua became the leader of the Hebrew nation and faced the daunting tasks of entering and taking possession of the Promised Land. God’s word to Joshua was a word of encouragement: “Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and of a good courage.  Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Strength and courage are sterling virtues essential for faith and success. At Carey, students will be encouraged to expect great things and to attempt great things with an unwavering faith in God.
