Dr. Charles Travis, Founder & President


Since 1977, small Bible schools and institutes have come together and invested in the formation of Aiden University based on a prophetic mandate to serve the body of Christ through the educational commitment to the local church around the world. With over forty years of service, the mandate continues to be our clarion call and the current administration and faculty are ever conscious of the deep responsibility that was passed on to us. To those who have gone before and to those who will follow, we express our gratitude.

Statement of Faith

The Apostle’s Creed is one of the earliest statements of faith adopted by the church. Its central doctrines are those of the Trinity and God the Creator. Over the centuries, it most clearly defines the statement of faith embraced by the majority of the Church and we affirm and believe the following truths as central to the Christian faith: 

We believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come again to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.

Philosophy of Education

Our degree programs are designed to be practical as well as academic, preparing people for ministry and service in the fulfillment of their call. Our primary goal is a Christian education that builds a solid foundation in the life of the student for both secular and ecclesiastical service.

Aidan is committed to: 

  • Offering Bible-based programs that increase the individual’s knowledge of biblical truth. 
  • Providing quality educational opportunities at a cost that is within reach.
  • Creating individual programs of study designed to meet the needs of the individual.
  • Preparing the individual for full-time ministry and the layperson for leadership within the local church and local community. 

The degree programs of this college are designed solely for religious vocations.
