2019-2020 Traditional Undergraduate Student Handbook

Biblical Principles for Living and Learning

In order to live effectively as a community of believers, expectations have been established for the good of all concerned. The college recognizes that not all Christians or Christian organizations will agree with the standards that LBC has established for its operation. The standards that follow are selected and designed for the context of Lancaster Bible College and for the leadership development program that is in place. These standards are derived from three basic biblical principles:

  1. The Principle of Ownership - We are his and because we are his, we need to be pure.
  2. The Principle of Stewardship - Our resources are his.
  3. The Principle of Love - We love him and others.

Every student is expected to live by these principles and standards while enrolled. We believe these standards will be foundational as students learn to live according to a biblical worldview. The community standards are not set forth as absolutes or as an index of Christian spirituality but rather are established to help each student grow and learn in community.
