As servants, we believe that we can fully engage in our academic disciplines only after our hearts have been transformed by the grace of God.

"As teachers we believe that the God-given potential of our students is realized through the mastery of academic knowledge and skills, empowering them to respond to God's call, to function as co-workers in our academic disciplines, and to enter into the workplace with marketable skills. As scholars, we believe that students should be engaged in the discovery and expansion knowledge. By mentoring them into our academic disciplines, we impart the insight and ingenuity required to solve problems and make a difference in this world. As servants, we believe that we can fully engage in our academic disciplines only after our hearts have been transformed by the grace of God. This transformation leads us to integrate our faith and work as an expression of the love of Christ."
