As members of the Life Pacific University Virginia community, in committed relationship with one another, we will strive for — with intentionality — a covenantal mandate upon the way we live, serve and minister.
We hold as the core values of Life Pacific University Virginia that we will:
PURSUE GOD TOGETHER
Prayer — We believe that prayer should be our first response in everything and should be how we begin our day.
Scripture — We will search and study God’s Word together, believing that becoming familiar with His voice begins with becoming familiar with His Word.
Devotion — We are committed to not only the reading and studying of God’s Word, but also the meditation on God’s Word throughout our day.
Worship — We believe we were created to worship God and recognize that we were created to be creative in worship, as an expression of who we are in Christ.
Personal character — We believe that accountability to one another, in our pursuit of God together, is more than an assignment, but instead a personal character building process.
BUILD COMMUNITY TOGETHER
Selfless perspective — As we learn to be servant leaders, we know that means putting the needs and aspirations of others before our own. We serve the fulfillment of God’s purpose and plan in the lives of those around us.
Safe place — We will do our part in making the LPC–Ignite campus a “safe place,” free from inappropriate conversations, behaviors, pursuits, or activities.
Heart of repentance — We believe that we are all in pursuit of righteousness and desire to live accordingly. We also recognize the fact that we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Therefore, we choose to walk in awareness of our need to repent of our sins, and be recipients of the forgiving grace and mercy of God.
Heart of forgiveness — We believe that in the same way we have been forgiven by the grace of God, we must not withhold forgiveness in our own community.
Honor-set standards — We believe that rules have been established by Life Pacific University Virginia, not as a means to control, but with the hope to create a safe environment that is conducive for healthy learning and personal growth.
Personal character — We believe that accountability to one another, in our pursuit to build a community together, is more than an assignment, but a personal character building process.
STAY FOCUSED TOGETHER
Kingdom living — We believe that we are to grow in Kingdom perspective in our daily response to challenges, our pursuit of ministry opportunities, and in our sensitivity to the Spirit.
Big-picture perspective — We want to be “big picture” thinkers, never getting caught up in “close proximity” limitations to the grander scheme of God’s purpose and plan for our lives.
Learning and serving before pleasure — We believe that having fun is at the core of everything we do, but not at the expense of our commitment to learn and serve. First things first! Class time, homework, and ministry assignments are valued as priorities. Personal free time and opportunities to have fun are built into the schedule as well.
Personal character — We believe that accountability to one another, attention to detail, and staying focused on the things we are responsible for is more than an assignment but a personal character building process.
