What is a covenant community?

At Bethel, we never lose sight of our highest goal: to become more like Christ. Working together-as students, faculty and staff-we can build a safe and supportive Christian community in which we freely live out our faith. As part of the application process, students are asked to sign A Covenant for Life Together, a document outlining our core beliefs and expectations. Having a common covenant helps us learn how to walk daily with our peers, professors, and all those we encounter as part of the Bethel community.
