Statement of Faith

  •  Bible to be the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God
  •  There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the
    Son, and God the Holy Ghost.
  • In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His
    miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His
    ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal, future return to his
    earth in power and glory to rule over nations.
  • That man was created in the image of God, good and upright, but fell from his
    state of innocence by voluntary disobedience of God.
  • We believe that there is a personal devil who is a father of liars, seeks to tempt
    and separate people from God.
  • The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the
    precious blood of Jesus.
  • Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.
  • The redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body
    in answer to believing prayer.
  • The Church is the body of Christ, of which He is the Head, and that it is
    composed of all true believers.
  • In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is
    enabled to live a holy life.
  • In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and
    the other to everlasting damnation.

Philosophy of Education

WCU maintains its Educational Philosophy that is reflected in the curriculum and
operations of the institution. The Board and faculty annually reviews it. WCU’s
educational philosophy is as follows:
The quality of the educational experience at Western Covenant University is fostered by
the close human and intellectual relationships between students and faculty and by
the open exchange of ideas. The University is committed to creating a learning
community in which people from diverse backgrounds and cultures are valued for the
breath of their perspectives and are encouraged in their intellectual pursuits.
The university’s instructional programs are designed to challenge students not only to
acquire knowledge but also to develop the skills of critical analysis, careful reasoning,
creativity and self-expression. Equally important, students learn to understand and
evaluate the sources and methods from which knowledge derives. Thereby, they come
to appreciate the contingency of all knowledge and to realize that education is a life-long
process.
Western Covenant University’s special character emerges from its commitment to
effective teaching, high standards of scholarship, ongoing professional development;
and to its policy of promoting diversity in the faculty, staff, administration, and student
population.
