Campus Ministry Leader’s Pledge
- I will seek to maintain first of all my relationship with Jesus Christ through personal Bible reading, prayer, campus ministry programming, and attending the church of my choice.
- I understand that leadership means living as an example. Therefore, I will abstain from the use of alcohol, steroids, and illegal drugs while in campus ministry leadership at William Penn University.
- I will not practice or encourage sexual activity outside of marriage.
- I will seek to be free from compromising sexual, ethical, and financial situations.
- I will strive to be biblically relational and ethical. I will seek to keep disagreements between me and those directly involved practicing Jesus’ command in Matthew 18.
- I am committed to unity among the accepted ministries on the campus of William Penn University even though I may disagree with some aspects of other ministries.
- I am in agreement with the doctrinal statements below:
- The only true God, the almighty Creator of all things, existing eternally in three persons–Father, Son, and Holy Spirit–full of love and glory.
- The unique divine inspiration, entire trustworthiness and authority of the Bible.
- The value and dignity of all people: created in God’s image to live in love and holiness, but alienated from God and each other because of our sin and guilt, and justly subject to God’s wrath.
- Jesus Christ, fully human and fully divine, who lived as a perfect example, who assumed the judgment due sinners by dying in our place, and who was bodily raised from the dead and ascended as Savior and Lord.
- Justification by God’s grace to all who repent and put their faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation.
- The indwelling presence and transforming power of the Holy Spirit, who gives to all believers a new life and a new calling to obedient service.
- The unity of all believers in Jesus Christ, manifest in worshiping and witnessing churches making disciples throughout the world.
- The victorious reign and future personal return of Jesus Christ, who will judge all people with justice and mercy, giving over the unrepentant to eternal condemnation but receiving the redeemed into eternal life.
