Statement on Statements
When brought to life by current events, the principles we teach remain timeless.
The King’s College is an educational institution firmly grounded in the truths of Christianity and a Biblical worldview. Our Core curriculum emphasizes the disciplines of Politics, Philosophy, and Economics, which provide the framework to help students explore who we are as human beings: what and how we believe (Philosophy), how we live together and govern ourselves, despite our differences (Politics), and how money and resources influence human flourishing (Economics). We emphasize these truths and principles in the classroom, studying historical answers to life’s big questions. When brought to life by current events, they remain timeless.
Our mission is best served by teaching students how to contextualize current events within this framework, rather than by publishing statements in response to manifestations of good or evil in our fallen world. The King’s College ensures an environment of academic freedom and unity in diversity, allowing students and faculty to draw their own reasoned conclusions through individual conversations, focused faculty lectures, and classroom dialogue, discerning for themselves how to live out their Biblical values. We support “faculty members as they directly engage culture through writing and speaking publicly on critical issues,” as explicitly expressed in our mission statement.
The King’s College statements on academic freedom and unity in diversity provide more detail on our commitment to fostering intellectual exchange and individual freedom, while honoring one another as bearers of the imago Dei. As the Apostle John writes in 1 John 3:18: “Let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” At King’s, we strive to be an institution where our convictions bear culture-shaping fruit, as we participate in Jesus’ mission of making all things new.
