A statement of faith is central to the college’s identity, serving as a unifying and clarifying document in an age of theological shifting and confusion. Hermeneutically, the college approaches Scripture from a grammatical, historical, and contextual viewpoint. Click LBC Statement of Faith to review the entire document.
