ThePlaceof the BIBLE inWheaton'sProgram...
At Wheaton, throughout more than a century since its founding in 1860, the Bible has been basic in the College’s strong persuasion and varied program. From its inception, Wheaton has served as a liberal arts college with studies and other activities designed to prepare its students for maturity and fullness in Christian life and service. Wheaton has been particularly concerned in helping to equip Christian young men and women for graduate study in various professional fields. With the Bible as the core of its curriculum and life, Wheaton has tried to provide its students with a meaningful integration of varied subject matter, and a highly developed sensitivity to ethical, moral, and spiritual values. Because of its conviction that there is no discrepancy in the pre-eminence of the Bible and the presentation of a quality academic program that is truly educative, each student at Wheaton must have-not a course, but 16 credit hours of Biblical studies for graduation, regardless of his major field. This represents two hours of Bible each semester of the normal four-year collegiate program. All Wheaton faculty members are dedicated to the persuasion that the Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God and that it is of prime importance in matters of life, faith, and practice. Their academic excellence is reflected in the world-wide performance of Wheaton students in graduate schools, the professions, and all avenues of Christian service. Wheaton’s teachers, as active Christians, are personally interested in both the intellectual and spiritual development of their students- Each year they reaffirm their convictions (as do the College trustees, administrative officers, and full-time staff personnel) by subscribing to the Doctrinal Platform. They are convinced creationists who believe in a historical Adam and historical Eve, the parents of the human race, who were created by God, and not biologically descended from lower forms of life. Devoted to the scientific method of study, they believe, as the Bible majestically states: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth ” . . . and . . . “God created man in His own image."
