Standards of Conduct

Biblical Principles

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 (Titus 2:11–14, Rom. 12:1–2, Phil. 4:8).

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.

Additional information regarding expected behavior and prohibited activities is available in the Pathway: Student Resource Guide.
