Community Covenant

Northeastern Baptist College is comprised of diversely talented individuals who are committed to the mission of the institution which is to develop the mind of a scholar, heart of a shepherd, and perseverance of a soldier. We believe that this goal is best lived out and practiced within a community of committed Christ followers. As men and women of Christian integrity, we believe that to grow as true Disciples of Christ we must:

  • Pursue godliness and holiness in our personal lives,
  • Esteem others higher than self,
  • Exercise restraint when our Christian liberty may be a stumbling block to other weaker believers,
  • Yield to Biblical instruction and correction,
  • Exercise confession and forgiveness,
  • Accept responsibility for actions and speech,
  • And be teachable.

We recognize that God’s call upon our lives means a daily, intentional abiding with Christ and the active pursuit of being living sacrifices before God, serving and reaching our world around us with the gospel of Christ.
