MISSION STATEMENT


The Mission of Northeast Adventist College is
“To restore in man the image of God to help students grow in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and Men.”

 The concept of the True Christian Education among Seventh-day Adventists is “more than the pursuit of a certain course of study. 

It means more than a preparation
for the life that now is.  It has to do with the whole being and with the whole period of existence possible to man.  It is the harmonious development of the physical, mental and spiritual powers. 
It prepares one for the joy of service in this world and the joy of wider service in the world to come.” 
This concept is also known as the four-fold education that includes the mental, spiritual, physical and social aspects of man.
