Mark 12: 29-31
Jesus answered, “The most important command is this: ‘Listen, people of Israel! The Lord our God is the only Lord. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’ The second command is this: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’ There are no commands more important than these”.
We Stand for Truth, and We Affirm and Honor Scriptural Principles
At Warner University, we pursue Biblical truth and use Scripture as our reference point for living. While Scripture does not provide specific guidelines regarding all human behavior, it does provide teaching and principles that can guide the choices and decisions we make. We believe the Bible has the final say in all matters of faith and practice (2 Peter 1:3). Out of a desire to foster a healthy, safe, and encouraging community environment, we commit to the following individual attitudes and behavior and understand that the below practices are not acceptable and will be responded to, as deemed appropriate, by the administration:
- Lying, plagiarism, cheating, theft, premarital sex, adultery, homosexual behavior, pornography, and infringement upon the rights of others. Warner University is a drug, alcohol, and tobacco-free school. The possession, use, and distribution of these items, in any amount, on campus are strictly prohibited.
- Students are expected to adhere to the local community, state, and nation laws and report deviations of the same.
We Show Respect to Others
As demonstrated in all areas of our speech and conduct, we strive for respect toward one another on our campus and beyond, including the online environment. We strive to keep our words positive, encouraging, and to the use of edifying. We refrain from slander, lying, gossip, bullying, and the use of vulgar or offensive language -Speak to Build (Eph 4:29, Col 4:6) Listen to Become more Godly (Eph 5:1).
We respect each person’s personal belongings and privacy (within the context of accountability), and we ask permission before touching another person’s property.
We respect those in authority over us; therefore, students are expected to be responsive to and respectful of all Warner University staff, faculty, and employees.
We Commit Ourselves to the Biblical Practices of Human Dignity
In the context of God’s grace, we value the racial, ethnic, gender, and religious diversity of our community. We honor each person’s unique gifts and dignity; show redemptive grace and compassion to each other by speaking the truth in love; and fostering an environment of transparency, authenticity, and unconditional love. We agree that preserving human dignity and protecting each other honors God and that harassment of any kind (verbal, sexual, racial, ethnic, etc.) will not be tolerated.
