Faith and Learning Statement
Brewton-Parker College is founded on faith in Jesus Christ, the son of God, and the affirmation that since all truth comes from God, the academic search for truth is compatible with faith in God. Therefore, the faculty at Brewton-Parker College has a proud heritage of valuing the importance of faith and learning. Throughout our history, we have attempted to provide a liberal arts education grounded in the understanding of the Christian tradition.
In this faith and learning statement, we reiterate our commitments to the following historic principles of church related education. The principle of soul competency, the worth of the individual, and the freedom of individual conscience are respected as foundational to the student's role in the learning process. The principle of the priesthood of the believer affirms the equality of all students in the learning process.
Dedicated to academic freedom, Brewton-Parker's faculty members continue to be committed to using their God-given talents to seek truth in all lines of scholarship. In doing so, they aspire, as they feel led, to encourage their colleagues and students to integrate their personal faith into their teaching, learning, and interactions. They also strive to promote a sincere spirit of Christ-like tolerance; to provide an open and nurturing environment to explore all intellectual avenues; and to strive to act toward others, both inside and outside the classroom, in a manner that honors the example set by Christ.
