General Information Carrying on a tradition o f educational excellence that dates back over 80 years, Biola University now encompasses: the School o f Arts and Sciences, Talbot School o f Theology, Rosemead School o f Psychology, the School o f Intercultural Studies, the School o f Business, and the School o f Continuing Studies. Offering three baccalaureate degrees in 24 majors, 10 masters and five doctoral degrees, Biota’s commitment to academic excellence is firmly rooted in its adherence to an in- depth, knowledgeable and living Christianity. Each year, over 3,000 students find Biola’s unique blend o f faith and learning conducive to their academic and vocational goals. HISTORICAL SKETCH_____________________________ The cornerstone o f the original Bible Institute building in Los Angeles was laid on May 31,1913, and dedicated with these words: “For the teaching o f the truths for which the Institute stands, its doors are to be open every day o f the year, and all people, without reference to race, color or class will ever be welcome to its privileges.” Spoken by Lyman Stewart, president o f the Institute and co-founder o f the Union Oil Company, these words capture t n t o h iz n e a , v t i i i n s o i i n o ti n a t a t o e k d f i n B t g i h o e s l h a B a ’s i p b f e o le u in I n n d 1 s e 9 t r i 0 t s u 8 . t . e S , B te w y w i 1 t a h 9 r 1 t t , h 2 t , e o t g f h i e r e t s h t sc e p h r e o w r o m i l t h a h n T a e d . n C t g . r o H o r w o g r a n sufficiendy in its outreach and constituency to call R A .

Sutherland became president in 1952, and •with his leadership the college obtained regional and professional accreditation. Additionally, many new programs o f study were introduced, including Talbot Theological Seminary. The demands imposed by the growing student body and the enlarged curriculum prompted the purchase of a 75-acre site in La Mirada. Biola moved to the new site in 1959. Dr. Sutherland retired as president in 1970, but continued to lend leadership as a member o f Biola’s Board of Trustees. That same year, Dr. J . Richard Chase became Biola’s sixth president In 1977, the graduate programs o f Rosemead Graduate School o f Professional Psychology were acquired by Biola a at n e d p r r e o lo gr c a a m te s d i o n n p t s h y e ch L o a lo M gy ira w d e a re ca m m e p r u g s e . d T w h it e h u R n o d s e e r m gr e a a d d u ’s graduate programs in the fall o f 1981, forming the present Rosemead School o f Psychology. lege U b n e d c e a r m t e h B e i l o e l a a d U e n rs iv h e ip rs o it f y D o r n .

The Board approved the establishment o f the School of Business in 1993, and the School of Continuing Studies in 1994. Because o f the University’s heritage and commitment, its academic basis is broader than that o f the standard college of arts and sciences. Terminal and preparatory programs lead to service in church-related vocations and the many other vocations and professions embraced by the present curricula. In addition, the University is a Christian institution o f higher education without any denominational affiliation. From an institute to a university, Biola’s cornerstone has remained the same: commitment to Jesus Christ, the inerrancy o f Scripture and biblical Christianity (within an evangelical Protestant framework), as well as to the spiritual, academic and holistic growth o f thosewho are personally committed to Him. THE BOLE AND MISSION OF BIOLA UNIVERSITY The mission o f Biola University is to provide a university education based on a Christian world view. This education is designed for Christian students to equip them for service in our world as followers o f the Lord Jesus Christ. Our quest is to graduate servants— some as scholars, some as leaders, and all as capable, competent professionals in their respective fields. a in te g a i B n n i o d th la g e r i e r a m d re p u s h a p a t e e s c iz t p i e r v s o e g i d n r i a s s p m c i i s r p a l b i t n i y o e n f s a a a c l u n t l d e ty a e c w x h c h i e n o l g le e i n x n c h e o i b u in i r t j u c o o n y m de i m n rg u l r e n a a i d c r u n a ­ ­ tion. We seek to produce graduates who have captured their excitement and dedication, and leave Biola equipped to advance Christian scholarship and practice in their respective fields. Biola aspires to set all o f its educational programs within the context o f a Christian world view. To accomplish this, all Biola students, undergraduate and graduate, take at least twenty percent o f their coursework in biblical studies and theological integration o f biblical studies with their academic disciplines. Discerning Christian scholarship o f the highest quality by our faculty and students is fundamental to our mission. Our undergraduate and graduate faculty grapple with the major intellectual, ethical, and moral issues o f our time from the perspective o f a Christian world view.

Biola has played a major role in equipping Christian leaders and workers for service to the church and the cause o f world evangelism since its founding in 1908 and plays an increasingly important role in the closing decade o f this century. We expect to continue this role into the next century, producing graduates equipped for church related vocations and for professional and academic careers where the integration o f faith and learning has potentially major consequences and ramifications. Our planning, commitments, and fiscal policies are directed toward building quality and excellence in fulfilling our mission.

By His death on the cross, the Lord Jesus made a perfect atonement for sin, by which the wrath of God against sinners is appeased and a ground furnished upon which God can deal in mercywith sinners. He redeemed us from the curse of the lawby becoming a curse in our place. He who Himself was absolutely without sin was made to be sin on our behalf that we might b in e g co a m ga e in th t e o r h ig is h e te a o r u th s , n p es e s rs o o f n G a o lly d , i b n o H di i l m y, . a T nd he vi L s o ib r ly d .

In addition, the follotuing explanatory notes indicate the organization’s under­ standing and teaching position on certain points which could be subject to various interpretations: The Scriptures are to be interpreted according to dispensa- tional distinctiveswith the conviction that the return o f the Lord for His Church will be premillennial, before the Tribulation, and that the Millennium is to be the last o f the dispensations. The existence o f the Creation is not explainable apart from the roles o f God as the sovereign creator and sustainer o f the entire natural realm. Concepts such as theistic or threshold evolution do not adequately explain creation.

DOCTRINAL STATEMENT__________________________ Inasmuch as the University is interdenominational and yet theologically conservative, the Articles o f Incorporation contain a doctrinal statement which is given below: The Bible, consisting o f all the books o f the Old and New T la e t s io ta n m f e r n o t m s, i G s o th d e H W im or s d el o f, f G co o n d c , e a rn su in p g er H na im tu s ra e l l l f y , g H i i v s en be r i e n v g e, nature, character, will and purposes; and Concerning man, his nature, need and duty and destiny. The Scriptures o f the Old and New Testaments are without error or misstatement in their moral and spiritual teaching and record o f historical facts. They are without error or defect o f any kind. There is one God, eternally existing and manifesting Himself to us in three Persons — Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Our Lord Jesus was supernaturally conceived by the p ea o l w d e e r s o ce f n th d e an H t o o ly f D Sp av ir i i d t . an H d e b l o iv r e n d o a f n a d v t i a rg u i g n h — t an M d ar w y r , o a ug li h n t mighty works and wonders and signs exactly as is recorded in the four Gospels. He was put to death by crucifixion under Pontius Pilate. God raised from the dead the body that had b io e n en sh n o a w il e e d d H to im th s e el c f ro to ss b . e T a h li e ve Lo to rd H Je is su d s is a c f i t p e l r es H , i a s p c p r e u a c r if i i n x g unto them by the space o f 40 days. After this, the Lord Jesus ascended into heaven, and the Father caused Him to sit at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come, and put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him to be Head over all things to the Church. The Lord Jesus, before His incarnation, existed in the form o f God and o f His own choice laid aside His divine glory and took upon Himself the form o f a servant and was made in the likeness o f men. In His pre-existent state, He was with God and was God. He is a divine person possessed o f all the attributes o f Deity, and should be worshiped as God by angels and man. “In Him dwelleth all the fullness o f the Godhead bodily.” All the words that He spoke during His earthly life were the words o f God. There is absolutely no error o f any kind in them, and by the words o f Jesus Christ the words o f all other teachers must be tested. sess T ed he o f L a o ll rd th J e es e u ss s e b n e ti c a a l m ch e a i r n ac e t v e e r r is y ti r c e s s o p f ec h t u a m r a e n al n m at a u n re , . pos­

At Biola every effort is made to be academically credible, theologically orthodox and practically relevant Whether engaged in a critical discussion of the texf or a theological debate about a particular doctrine, the discussion must finally come to the meaning for life today. m me e n n T t t h t t o o h u t e h g y e h r c e f o a fl c n e u v c l i t t c y a t i m o h n e e s a m l r t b e h f e y l r e s c d t i i e v n d e t r h i s n i i t s y t d h r e e e p g U a a n r r t i d v m i e n e r g s n i t t o y s t h h d a e o r r c e t c r a o i n n c a o te l m m st m a p t i o e t­ ­ rary issues and interpretation o f specific passages.
