Community Life Statement

Our community life at Gordon-Conwell is bounded and illumined by Scripture. We recognize the unique calling we have as an institution of theological education and seek to live faithfully to our mission of forming women and men to serve the global church. We seek to be a thoughtful, loving, and Christ-centered community of global discipleship, whether in-person or in-digital spaces. As such, the following are our commitments to each other for the sake of our love for Christ, and for our sanctification and witness as we seek to thrive and flourish in this place.

1. We affirm that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the ultimate guide for our values, attitudes, and behaviors in all relationships. Our statement of faith provides our common commitment to Scripture.

2. We will foster the development of spiritual maturity by deepening a personal relationship with Jesus and through participating in corporate worship and prayer and other communal activities.

3. We will keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace, and in gentleness, patience, and humility; we will accept one another in love.

4. We will encourage one another to mature in Christ-likeness by empathetically speaking the truth in love in all areas of our common life.

5. We will value our families, attending to their emotional, spiritual, and physical health and well-being, as well as our own. We will affirm the full value of singleness alongside marriage, childless alongside children; and we will resist actions that threaten these values, such as unaddressed addictions, domestic abuse, and divorce.

6. We will respect and encourage each person’s uniqueness in Christ, which includes our diversity of denomination, race, culture, personality, experience, gifts, and goals.

7. We will each become involved individually in a local church and ministering to spiritual and social needs within and beyond

Statement of Faith

  1. The sixty-six canonical books of the Bible as originally written were inspired of God, hence free from error. They constitute the only infallible guide in faith and practice.
  2. There is one God, the Creator and Preserver of all things, infinite in being and perfection. He exists eternally in three Persons; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, who are of one substance and equal in power and glory.
  3. Man, created in the image of God, through disobedience fell from his sinless state at the suggestion of Satan. This fall plunged man into a state of sin and spiritual death, and brought upon the entire race the sentence of eternal death. From this condition man can be saved only by the grace of God, through faith, on the basis of the work of Christ, and by the agency of the Holy Spirit.
  4. The eternally pre-existent Son became incarnate without human father, by being born of the virgin Mary. Thus in the Lord Jesus Christ divine and human natures were united in one Person, both natures being whole, perfect and distinct. To effect salvation, He lived a sinless life and died on the cross as the sinner’s substitute, shedding His blood for the remission of sins. On the third day He rose from the dead in the body which had been laid in the tomb. He ascended to the right hand of the Father, where He performs the ministry of intercession. He shall come again, personally and visibly, to complete His saving work and to consummate the eternal plan of God.
  5. The Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Triune God. He applies to man the work of Christ. By justification and adoption man is given a right standing before God; by regeneration, sanctification and glorification man’s nature is renewed.
  6. The believer, having turned to God in penitent faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, is accountable to God for living a life separated from sin and characterized by the fruit of the Spirit. It is his responsibility to contribute by word and deed to the universal spread of the Gospel.
  7. At the end of the age the bodies of the dead shall be raised. The righteous shall enter into full possession of eternal bliss in the presence of God, and the wicked shall be condemned to eternal death.
