Description

Values Supremacy of Jesus Christ

The Lord Jesus Christ is God revealed to us through His incarnation, the Scriptures and the expressed work of the Holy Spirit. We measure our being, beliefs, and actions against truth as revealed through Jesus Christ. Jesus being man emphasized the uniqueness of humankind. Because God in creation gave special attention to humanity, so should we. In the Lord Jesus Christ we live and move and have our being.

Intentional Dynamic Growth and Development

Simpson University is a Christ-centered community called to education. We want to develop fully our bodies, minds, souls, and spirits so that we reflect His character (which includes holiness, love, purity, justice, and mercy), wisdom and concerns for all people in all nations. We emphasize spiritual formation and academic learning.

Integrity

Integrity includes adoption of a biblically centered morality, congruence in thought and action, wholeness, justice, grace, and being responsible and accountable. Persons of integrity guard all relationships to assure alignment with Jesus Christ and His revelation.

Community

In a community people are valued; differences accepted; authentic care extended; and common purposes emphasized. All relationships include the presence of fidelity, loyalty, trust, compassion, respect, love, encouragement, kindness, humility, and commitment to common purposes, which at Simpson University is learning in a community that is spiritually motivated. In this environment unity will be experienced.

Innovation

To remain dynamic and growing in the current cultural environment we resolve to be creative, take risks, be flexible and work to stay on the cutting edge. We will use innovation as a means to achieve excellence in all endeavors. Excellence is not to be confused with perfection. While we are always striving to improve, we are not perfect.

Service

We are called to reflect Christ's selflessness in our attitudes and ministries as we serve across the globe. As His servants we specifically recognize our responsibilities to society. We strive to be exceptional citizens with a healthy influence on our culture as well as Christ's church.

Stewardship

We are stewards or managers of God's creation and gifts. We particularly recognize the need to develop our minds (learning), care for our bodies (right living), enrich our spirits (spiritual formation) and manage our time and physical resources (priority setting). We seek to maintain a balance based on the Gospel and truth.
