As members of Bethel's community we're part of a covenant. Unlike a one-way contract that's signed and adhered to, Bethel's Covenant of Life Together is a relationship involving lots of people.
You sign the covenant, knowing that others are counting on you to support them in their faith, academics, and life, in general. In return, they do the same for you. You give and you get.
While we live and grow together at Bethel, we promise to honor a specific set of values meant to help everyone succeed in academics, sports, relationships, and faith. And we hold each other accountable to that promise.
We laugh. We learn. We sing, worship, and pray together. The covenant ties us into a community where we can create and strengthen authentic, Christ-filled relationships.
Not meant to be a burden, the covenant is something to celebrate. For this short time in our lives, we get to be part of a community that recognizes, appreciates, and cares for each other.
Our covenant was not prescribed to us by administration. True to its nature, it was a collaboration among students, faculty, and staff, who based it on biblical teaching about Christian qualities. And it continues to evolve along with our community.
