Mission Statement

Somerset Christian College educates, inspires, and equips students for excellent scholarship, service, and leadership. Rooted in and committed to Christian faith and love, SCC fosters intellectual, spiritual, and social development among its diverse student population at various instructional sites.



Somerset Chrisitan College is an educational ministry of the Pillar of Fire, International. The Pillar of Fire was organized in 1901. It is an evangelical organization with theological roots in the Methodist Episcopal Church and the nineteenth century American Holiness Movement.

Zarephath Bible Institute (ZBI) was founded in 1908 as a training school for missionaries, preachers, and teachers. Over the years, it has prepared many students to serve in various occupations in numerous Christian ministry organizations.

ZBI became Somerset Christian College on March 23, 2001 When the New Jersey Commission on Higher Education issued the license to grant the two-year Associate in Biblical Studies degree. In 2006 the college was approved to offer four-year Bachelor of Arts degrees.

We know that we can't change the world, but we can do something. One life at a time. The lives we focus on are young men in our surrounding inner cities. There are thousands of them. They may look tough, but they're hungry, afraid and often filled with hopelessness.

Urban Impact is a program that not only offers to meet the physical, intellectual and emotional needs of inner city youth, but we offer hope that transcends any life situation.
