Student Responsibilities and Rights
The Bible is the final authority for all things and the means by which God provides principles for living in a way that protects from harmful thinking and behavior.
Scripture clearly teaches how Christians are to live. In light of the wonderful gift of salvation, we are to live our lives in active pursuit of a lifestyle that keeps us pure and clean before God with careful attention to avoiding anything that detracts from our relationship with Christ.
For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
In light of these principles, PCC has adopted standards to promote an environment that is conducive to academic, social, and spiritual growth. Where the Bible directly addresses a matter, standards are set accordingly. However, since God’s Word does not mention every aspect of college life, biblical principles are followed and conservative expectations have been established to encourage right Christian living and to be a protection against doing wrong. By enrolling in Pensacola Christian College, each student personally accepts and agrees to follow the guidelines set forth in the Code of Conduct.
