Religious Beliefs

As a church-related institution, Bacone College has a unique responsibility to its constituency and to the academic community. The philosophy of the College concerning its religious expression has been summarized in the following statement: 

Bacone College was founded as an institution dedicated to the pursuit of truth within the constructs of the Christian faith. There is no attempt to seek religious conformity from faculty, staff, or students of diverse persuasions. The freedom of the individual to develop his/her own spiritual insights is one of the most cherished traditions on this campus.

All faculty who accept appointment should be in basic sympathy with the traditions and endeavors of the institution, should seek to further its nurturing Christian environment, and should dedicate their influence and abilities to its continuing development.
