A Statement of Baptist Higher Education Values

Campbellsville University is committed to providing a quality educational experience within the Baptist tradition and in keeping with a strong Christian emphasis. Under the Lordship of Christ, the institution affirms historic Baptist principles including: the priesthood of the believer, the authority of Scripture, freedom of conscience, integration of faith and learning, pursuit of truth in an academically challenging environment, student involvement in servant ministry, and affirmation of others in a spirit of grace and love. While the University continues to maintain very close ties to Baptist Churches and bodies, the institution exists to provide Christ-centered higher educational opportunities to a diverse student population. Campbellsville University, while Baptist in affiliation and Christ-based in practice, is neither a church nor an ecclesiastical authority. Since 1906 the institution has existed to provide higher educational opportunities to men and women in a positive and academically challenging Christian environment. In that same spirit, we affirm the challenges and opportunities of Baptist higher education in the 21st Century.

In compliance with A Statement on Baptist Higher Education Values as noted above, Campbellsville University affirms the historical religious exemption granted under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and other applicable federal and state statutes and regulations, as a Christian university in the Baptist tradition, and to develop and implement all policies and procedures relative to employment practices and student and employee behavior to conform with this historical relationship to the Baptist church and the larger Christian community. These policies and procedures will be the basis for the mission and activities of all campus organizations and use of all Campbellsville University facilities.

As God extended His love for all human beings through his Son Jesus Christ and as an institution that affirms the “whosoever will gospel of Jesus Christ” (John 3:16), Campbellsville University extends love for mankind through a commitment to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20; Acts 1:8) and in the spirit of the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:36-40). Therefore, Campbellsville University will implement the development and administration of all policies and procedures in the recognition of the diversity of God’s creation and His infinite grace toward all people.
