Dear Friend:

Welcome to California Baptist University! I look forward to greeting you personally when the opportunity permits, but for now allow me to congratulate you for deciding to pursue your educational goals at CBU and to thank you for trusting us to help you reach those goals.

Since 1950, students have chosen California Baptist University for the caring personal attention they receive and for high quality academic programs taught by faculty members who recognize the importance of spiritual development as well as intellectual growth.

CBU remains faithful to the Christian values and principles found in the Great Commission, Christ’s challenge to his followers found in Matthew 28:19-20:

Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.

At CBU, we work hard to fulfill this commandment by integrating faith and learning and by offering a wide range of opportunities for service. Throughout Southern California and around the world, we are gaining a reputation to match our vision of “a University Committed to the Great Commission.”

For many students, the decision to share the CBU experience marks the first step in a long-term relationship. We trust it will be a positive and rewarding experience for you. This is an exciting time to be part of the CBU community and we are genuinely pleased that you are here.

Once again, welcome to California Baptist University and may the Lord continue to bless!

Your brother in Christ,



Ronald L. Ellis, Ph.D.
