Our identity in Christ gives meaning and purpose to our existence. Knowing who we are as a Christ-centered university informs our behavior, guides our decisions, and provides a clear identity for our community. This collection of documents represents our values and ethos. They serve as our guideposts as we traverse the landscape of higher education and an evolving and increasingly complex cultural context. They fashion our foundation as we lean into our Shared Vision 2022 and strive to become that “city on a hill that reflects the life of Christ and shines the light of Truth.”
Those exploring our community will find a warm and welcoming environment, where relationships matter, none more so than our individual and collective relationship with Jesus Christ. Please familiarize yourself with these statements. Consider how they give expression to your own values and faith journey. We believe this framework embraces the healthy, God-given diversity of the Body of Christ and know our community is enriched by the Christian traditions represented at APU. We pray that your thoughtful and thorough review offers clarity about your fit as a prospective member of our university family and guides your path forward.
