STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT
As a Christian community, our Code of Conduct is not arbitrary or legalistic code, but a standard of Christian living based on our understanding of the Holy Bible, which forms our final authority in all matters of faith and practice. Therefore, as a community of Christian believers, committed to Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour and filled with the Holy Spirit, all members of the AIU community strive to live lives of personal integrity and obedience to the Word of God.
Furthermore, as servants of God striving to be useful leaders of God’s people, we recognize that we are called to the highest standards of Christian conduct in our personal and corporate lives. Therefore we agree to live together by the following Code of Conduct.
- Biblical Principles: The following are fundamental biblical principles that should guide our attitudes and behaviour at all times.
- Glorifying God. Glorifying God, not self-Satisfaction, is to be the chief goal of the Christian in all that is said and done (I Chr. 16:24, 28-29a; Isa. 48:11; I Cor. 10:31). Therefore, a God- centred life style should characterize all Christian behavior.
- Loving God and Neighbour. Loving God with all our hearts, souls, minds, and strength and our neighbour as ourselves are the greatest commands in Scripture (Mark 12:30-31). Therefore the Christian’s relationship with God should be one of total commitment in all that we do and should be reflected in loving, caring relationships with all those around us.
- Obeying Christ. Acknowledging Jesus as Saviour and Lord is central to being a Christian (Rom.10:9; I John 2:3). Therefore, Christians seek to follow the example of Christ given in Scripture and conform their lives to the Bible teaching as illuminated by the Holy Spirit.
