Integration of Faith and Learning Statement

In conjunction with the university goals and mission, course content of the general education department courses will be guided by, and reflect, a Christian worldview and ethical values. “The logic and knowledge from every discipline is built upon a set of presuppositions. All such presuppositions must be examined and informed by the truth derived from the revealed Word of God and Christian thinking founded on a Christocentric epistemology, so as to create a coherent body of knowledge, i.e., faith informs all of learning’s presuppositional thinking.” (RW, 2009). Key Biblical Texts: Romans 12:1-2 and Colossians 1:17.
