Code of Conduct

Integrity -  Strive to maintain a lifestyle that is above reproach.  A Christian should be honest, moral and trustworthy in all dealings, seen or unseen, on or off campus. ~ Titus 1:8, Proverbs 20:11 

Respect -  An attitude that highly esteems those in properly placed authority.  Parents, teachers, employers, governmental authority and church leaders have been placed in our lives by God.  God gave us a Biblical command to honor those in authority for our own good. ~ Hebrews 13:7 

Obedience-  The outworking of the attitude of respect.  We are to obey God and be submissive to those He has placed over us in our lives.  When we obey, we show our love and respect for God and the authorities He has ordained.  Our lives then will be long and fruitful as he has promised. ~ Romans 12:1-7 

Self-Discipline -  The ability to control one's thoughts and actions.  The ultimate goal is to have a life under control - disciplined by the Spirit of God. ~ 2 Timothy 1:7 

GODLY LIVING -  Consists of a lifestyle that exhibits the fruit of the Spirit and flees from the acts of our sinful nature.  Our standards are found in God's Word and our desire must be one with God and His holiness. ~ Galatians 5:16-26, 2 Timothy 2:22 

Wisdom - Divine understanding based on what is true from God's perspective, and doing what is right.  Wisdom comes from God and our respect for him.  Wisdom may be further developed in our lives when we respond to correction according to the Biblical model.  If we do not respond to correction with a teachable spirit, the Bible calls us fools and we are unable to attain wisdom. ~ Proverbs 1:7 

Responsibility -  Being dependable and accountable in all relationships and tasks.  We are accountable to love, encourage, confront, comfort and forgive each other.  Furthermore, initiative, intellectual integrity and excellence should be the goals of all tasks we attempt. ~ Galatians 6:1-5 

Thankfulness -   In developing an attitude of gratefulness we are to be thankful for everything God brings into our lives.  Knowing that God's dealings in our lives are intended for our own "good" will foster a lifestyle of gratefulness that will be demonstrated through our attitudes and actions. ~ Philippians 4:6-7   

Service-  A spirit of humility that focuses on the needs of others without self-seeking motives.  Christ is our example in living a life that is not self-centered.  Christ, the Son of God, was the ultimate servant leader.   ~ Philippians 2:3-11 

Eternal Values- Set your minds on things above not on earthly things.  The key is to evaluate our priorities and live our lives each day with the understanding that only what is done for eternity will last.             ~ Colossians 3:2
