COMMUNITY STANDARDS Jesus Christ lived the way He expects us to live. His actions, His spirit and attitude are examples - “leaving us an example to follow in His steps” (1 Peter 2:21). We intend to live as Christ has taught us to live, and if we are to fulfill the Great Commission in Matthew 28, it must begin with us. Matthew 28:19-20 reminds us of this fact:
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations... teaching them to observe all that I commanded you.”
Sense and Sensitivity We, who are called to lead, must be the first ones to observe His commandments. Remember,
“God cannot do anything through you that He has not done in you.” -Lloyd John Ogilvie, chaplain of the Senate, 1995-2003
Drug and Alcohol Policy The use of non-prescription drugs is prohibited at all times. The use of alcohol and tobacco is prohibited on campus, including dormitories and NHCC apartments and at any college events, on or off campus. NHCC students under the legal drinking age of 21 are to refrain at anytime and anywhere from alcohol under Oregon state laws. Adult students must use extreme discretion in their own homes and private gatherings when using alcohol and again students living in campus apartments must remember that no alcohol is allowed on campus property. Jesus reminds us that: • The Bible prohibits drunkenness (Proverbs 31:4-5; Galatians 5:21). •
The Bible teaches being sensitive to the impact of drinking on Christians who may hold a different perspective than you (Romans 14).
New Hope Christian College students are expected to comply with local, state and federal laws. Any student found to be conducting criminal activity on school premises or at school activities will be handed over to the local authorities.
