What is your doctrinal position? The full Doctrinal Statement appears in the back of this catalog. While our faculty and board annually affirm their agreement with the entire statement, students need only affirm these seven essentials: • the authority and inerrancy of Scripture • the Trinity • the full deity and humanity of Christ • the spiritual lostness of the human race • the substitutionary atonement and bodily resurrection of Christ • salvation by faith alone in Christ alone • the physical return of Christ
