Covenant Affirms Common Commitments in "Statement of Community Beliefs"



In their March 2008 meeting, the Covenant College Board of Trustees gave final approval to a document which clarifies the College's commitments on an array of theological and ethical issues. All faculty, senior administration, and trustees are required to sign the document, entitled Statement of Community Beliefs.

 

The Statement builds on the College's foundational convictions with regard to the inerrancy of Scripture and to the Westminster Confession of Faith by articulating specific implications and applications of these foundational convictions in areas of contemporary debate, including revelation, creation, sexuality, wives and husbands, women and men in the church, the sanctity of life, race, and the pursuit of justice and mercy.

 

Developed by members of the board, faculty, and administration and approved by the board, the Statement serves as an institutional testimony of the College's wholehearted desire to be faithful to historic Christian faith and practice, to serve faithfully as the College of the Presbyterian Church in America, and to be alert to the common tendency for institutions of higher education to drift from founding convictions. In their approval, the board recognized the need for periodic review and possible amendment of the Statement, as additional important theological and ethical issues which deserve attention come to the fore.

 

Beginning this fall, College trustees, senior administration, and faculty must give annual assent to the Statement, in addition to the inerrancy of Scripture and to the Westminster Confession of Faith. The rationale and use of the Statement are laid out in the Statement's opening section, illustrated here in the version applying to faculty:

While this Statement is not Holy Scripture, we do believe it is faithful to God's Word and reflects the Reformed tradition as found in the Westminster Standards. Since Covenant College aims to be biblically based as well as mindful of our rich Reformed heritage, this Statement is an attempt to keep our community faithful, promoting general harmony even among the diversity of opinions represented in our community. Therefore, good faith assent to this Statement will be a factor in the hiring, evaluation, and promotion of faculty. If a faculty candidate or faculty member finds himself or herself in disagreement with the Statement in some particular, he or she will be asked to explain the nature of the disagreement. The Board of Trustees retains ultimate and final authority to judge the limits of tolerable exception.
