Statement of Faith & Community Covenant

Statement of Faith

A deep faith in God is the cornerstone of LeTourneau University. We believe that no education is complete until a student understands who God is and how to relate to Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. This belief influences all that we do and teach. While we believe that everyone must have the freedom to interpret God's truth individually, LeTourneau University recognizes certain basic tenets of the Christian faith:

  1. We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the only inspired, authoritative Word of God and are completely truthful and without error.
  2. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, was born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.
  4. We believe that man, created in the image of God, sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and that those who reach moral responsibility become sinners in thought, word, and deed.
  5. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the basis of His shed blood.
  6. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and His present life there for us as High Priest and Advocate.
  7. We believe in "that blessed hope," the personal, visible and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
  8. We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become the children of God; by Grace are we saved through faith.
  9. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.

Community Covenant

For the sake of fulfilling the community's purposes, its diverse members and guests voluntarily enter into a social compact. At LeTourneau we call this social compact our Community Covenant. For LeTourneau’s Community Covenant to serve its stated purposes, it is crucial that each person understand and embrace it as the guiding document for life and work together. Read the full Community Covenant.

Statement on Diversity

In light of the witness of Scripture, LeTourneau University is committed to diversity that: (a) faithfully expresses God’s multifaceted design, wisdom, and creativity, and (b) orients toward faithful participation in God’s ongoing mission of redemption and reconciliation of all things for the sake of communion and worship.  Read the University's Statement on Diversity.
