Our Heritage

Born in the midst of revival, Life Pacific University was established in 1923 as a training center to equip every generation to take the gospel to the world. It began as a two-year institution and today it is a four-year regionally and nationally accredited Christian university affiliated with the Foursquare Church — committed to a Pentecostal mission.


Our leadership and administration are dedicated to creating an optimal learning environment where students grow and advance academically, professionally and spiritually. From committed university leadership to involved alumni and parents — we are for the students.


Our faculty are deeply passionate about teaching and equipping students to be all they’re made to be — from the classroom to the workplace and beyond. They seek out opportunities to teach at LPU because of our reputation to foster a diverse learning environment with a Christian foundation.
