General Information Carrying on a tradition of educational excellence that dates back 78 years, Biola University now encompasses four schools: The School of A rts, Sciences and Profes­ sions, Rosemead School of Psychology, Tal­ bot Theological Seminary and School of Theology, and The School of Intercultural Studies and World Missions. Offering three baccalaureate degrees in 24 majors, 14 masters and four doctoral degrees, Biola's commitment to academic excellence is firm ly rooted in its adherence to an in- depth, knowledgeable and alive Christian­ ity. Each year, over 3 100 students find Biola's unique blend of faith and learning conducive to their academic and vocational goals. Historical Sketch The cornerstone of the original Bible In­ stitute building in Los Angeles — and the future university — was laid on May 3 1, 1913, and dedicated with these words: For the teaching of the truths fo r which the Institute stands, its doors are to be open every day of the year, and all peo­ ple, without reference to race, color, class or creed will ever be welcome to its privileges. Spoken by Lyman Stewart, president of the Institute and founder of the Union Oil Company, the words captured the vision of Biola’s founders. Stewart, together with T .C . Horton, had initiated the Bible Insti­ tute, with the first permanent organization taking shape in 1908. By 1912, the school had grown in its outreach and constituency sufficiently to call R. A . Torrey, a leader in the field of Christian education, as the first dean. The next seven decades have witnessed tremendous growth in the development and outreach of the school. Under the leadership of Dr. Louis T. Talbot, president from 1932 to 1952, the Bible Institute pro­ gram became a four year course, leading

derstanding which are generated by stu­ dents and faculty in the disciplines and in integration with the biblical Christian world view. The other consists of public services as students, faculty and staff make their professional and personal expertise avail­ able to the Christian community and to so­ ciety at large throughout the world. In brief, the mission o f Biola University is to equip Christians to impact the world for Jesus Christ, primarily through the ongoing lives of its graduates but also through the in-service work of its present students, fac­ ulty and staff. Doctrinal Statement Inasmuch as the university is interde­ nominational and yet theologically conser­ vative, the Articles offhcorporation con­ tain a doctrinal statement which is given below: The Bible, consisting of all the books of the Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God, a supernaturally given revelation from God Himself, concerning Himself, His being, nature, character, will and purposes; and concerning man, his nature, need and duty and destiny. The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are without e rro r or misstatement in their moral and spiritual teaching and record of historical facts. They are without erro r or defect of 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 con­ ceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin ■— Mary, a lineal descen­ dant of David. He lived and taught and wrought mighty works and wonders and signs exactly as is recorded in the four Gospels. He was put to death by crucifix­ ion under Pontius Pilate. God raised from the dead the body that had been nailed to the cross. The Lord Jesus after His crucifix­ ion showed Himself to be alive to His disci­ ples, appearing unto them by the space of forty days. A fter this the Lord Jesus as­ cended 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

is a Christian institution of higher education without any denominational affiliation. From an institute to a university, Biola's real cornerstone has remained the same: commitment to Jesus Christ and biblical Christianity (within the evangelical Protes­ tant framework) as well as to the spiritual, academic and holistic growth of those who are personally committed to Him. The Mission of Biola University The mission of Biola University is to be a Christian university, providing education at the baccalaureate and post-baccalaureate levels in biblical studies and theology, in the liberal arts and sciences, and in selected applied and professional fields. It is to be Christian in the sense that the biblical Christian world view serves as the all-en­ compassing framework and integrating ba­ sis for the entire content and conduct of the institution. It is to be a university in the full traditional meaning of the term , with knowledge and understanding being gen­ erated and disseminated, with students and faculty continually developing to high levels their cognitive and affective poten­ tial, and with society being served benefi­ cially thereby,. In combining the two terms, Christian and university, considerable em­ phasis is placed upon the scholarly integra­ tion of biblical faith with all of the fields of learning, and also upon the practical interrelationships and interdependencies of faith, learning and living as they are de­ veloped throughout the curriculum, the co-curriculum and the life-style. The mission of the university is to produce graduates who are (a) competent in their fields of study, (b) knowledgeable in biblical studies, and (c) earnest Christians equipped to serve the Christian communi­ ty and society at large. An expanded ver­ sion of this statement is printed in the cata­ log, for the institution as a whole and also for some of the specific programs. There are two additional "products" of the university, both of which are to be viewed as outgrowths of the task of pro­ ducing graduates of its baccalaureate and post-baccalaureate programs and not as separate from it. One consists of the schol­ arly contributions to knowledge and un­

to degrees in theology, Christian education and sacred musicB"he School of Mission­ ary Medicine came into being in 1945, lay­ ing the foundation for Biola's current bac­ calaureate nursing program. In 1949, the Bible Institute was renamed Biola College. Dr. Samuel H. Sutherland became presi­ dent in 1952 and with his leadership, the college obtained regional and professional accreditation. Additionally, many new pro­ grams of study were introduced, including Talbot Theological Seminary. The demands imposed by the growing student body and the enlarged curriculum prompted the purchase of a seventy-five acre site in La Mirada. Biola moved to the new site in 1959. Dr. Sutherland retired as president in 1970, but continues to lend leadership as a member of Biola’s board of trustees. That same year, Dr. J. Richard Chase became Biola's sixth president. In the fall of 1981, the undergraduate programs in psychology were merged with Rosemead's graduate programs, forming the present Rosemead School of Psychol­ ogy. Dr. Clyde Cook became the seventh president of Biola on June 1, 1982. Under his leadership, the School of Intercultural Studies and World Missions was instituted as part of the university, beginning in the fall of 1983. Talbot Theological Seminary and School of Theology also began in the fall of 1983 as the result of a merger be­ tween appropriate undergraduate pro­ grams and the graduate programs of Tal­ bot Theological Seminary. Because of the university's heritage and commitment, its academic basis is broader than that of the standard college of arts and sciences. Terminal and preparatory programs lead to service in both church- related vocations and the many other vo­ cations and professions embraced by the present curricula. In addition, the university

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 of God, and of His own choice laid aside His divine glory and took upon Himself the form of a servant and was made in the likeness of men. In His pre-existent state He was with God and was God. He is a divine person pos­ sessed o f all the attributes of Deity, and should be worshipped as God by angels and man. "In Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily." All the words that He-spoke during His earthly life were the words of God. There is absolutely no er­ ror of any kind in them, and by the words of Jesus Christ the words of all other teachers must be tested. The Lord Jesus became in every respect a real man, possessed of all the essential characteristics of human nature. By His death on the cross, the Lord Je­ sus 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 mercy with sinners. He redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse in our place. He who Himself was absolutely without sin was made to be sin on our behalf that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. The Lord Jesus is coming again to this earth, personally, bodily, andpsibly. The return of our Lord is the blessed hope of the believer, and in it God's purposes of grace toward mankind will find their con­ summation. The Holy Spirit is a person, and is pos­ sessed of all the distinctively divine attributes. He is God. Man was created in the image of God, after His likeness, but the whole human race fell in the fall of the first Adam. All men, until they accept the Lord Jesus as their personal Savior, are lost, darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, hardened in heart, morally and spiri­ tually dead through their trespasses and sins. They cannot see, nor enter the king­ dom of God until they are born again of the Holy Spirit.

Men are justified on the simple and sin­ gle ground of the shed blood of Christ and upon the simple and single condition of faith in Him who shed the blood, and are born again by the quickening, renewing, cleansing work of the Holy Spirit, through the instrumentality of the Word of God. All those who receive Jesus Christ as their Savior and their Lord, and who con- . fess Him as such before their fellow men, become children of God and receive eter­ nal life. They become heirs of God and joint-heirs with Jesus Christ. A t death their spirits depart to be with Christ in con­ scious blessedness, and at the second com­ ing of Christ their bodies shall be raised and transformed into the likeness of the body of His glory. All those who persistently reject Jesus Christ in the present life shall be raised from the dead and throughout eternity exist in a state o f conscious, unutterable, endless torment and anguish. The Church consists of all those who, in this present dispensation, truly believe on Jesus Christ. It is the body and bride of Christ, which Christ loves and for which He has given Himself. .The re is a personal devil, a being of great cunning and power. “The prince of the power of the air.” “The prince of this world." "The god of this age." He can exert vast power only so far as God suffers him to do so. He shall ultimately be cast into the lake of fire and brimstone and shall be tormented day and night forever. NO TE : This doctrinal statement, pre­ sented here as originally conceived by the founders of the organization, has been and continues to be the stated theological posi­ tion of Biola University. In addition, the fol­ lowing explanatory notes indicate the or­ ganization's understanding and teaching position on certain points which could be subject to various interpretations. The Scriptures are to be interpreted according to dispensational distinctives with the conviction that the return of the Lord for His Church will be premillenial, before the Tribulation, and that the millennium is to be the last of the dispensations.

I

The Standards of Biola University Biola University has long recognized a value in maintaining certain behavioral standards that contribute to the atmo­ sphere on campus, foster fellowship with a wide range of Christians and, in many in­ stances, assist in strengthening our Chris­ tian testimony to our community. In this light, Biola University asks both its students and employees to be supportive of this behavioral standard. This institution is for earnest Christians who are sensitive to the many principles of Christian living that are found in the Bible. The institution also states certain specific guidelines for the conduct of faculty, staff and students. Although such regulations are not the basis o f our standing in Christ, and are not a necessary consequence of it, they can strengthen the life and testimony of both the individual: and the institution. To this end, Biola expects its faculty, staff and students to refrain from the use of al­ coholic beverages and tobacco and from gambling and dancing. Further, Biola, though appreciating the rich contribution of the arts to mankind, deplores morally degrading elements whenever they are found in the theatre, the entertainment media and literature; Biolans are expected to abstain from all aspects of such that morally degrade. Biola University does not presume to be a censoring agency for a lH activities; it does, however, expect tangible evidence of maturing Christian convictions and discerning judgment. Biola reserves the right to dismiss a stu­ dent who, in its judgment, does not con­ form either to the stated regulations gov­ erning student conduct or to the ex­ pressed principles, policies and programs of the university. These standards apply to the student while he is enrolled in any of the schools or programs of the university including sum­ mers and vacations, on campus and off campus.

b. One who is thoroughly prepared for graduate study in those pro­ grams where graduate degrees are offered. 3. Knowledgeable in biblical studies. a. One who has a clear understanding of the content of the Bible commensurate in units with an un­ dergraduate major. b. One who has integrated biblical thought into his major fields of inter­ est. 4. Able through his vocation, church and community to make distinctive contribu­ tions to mankind and to enhance the spiritual well-being of those whom and with whom he serves. a. One who has developed and main­ tained high moral standards for his own benefit and in order that he might serve as a wholesome exam­ ple and leader. b. One who expresses through his life a clear commitment to Christ, who is able openly and wisely to share both his knowledge of the Bible and his commitment to Christ with oth­ ers; and who demonstrates Chris­ tian love toward others. c. One who is prepared to fulfill Christ's commission to make disci­ ples of all nations. d. One who is sensitive to the total needs of his fellowman and who is equipped to contribute to the meet­ ing of those needs. e. One who holds to the conviction that the Christian is to be a good citizen of the State, one who re­ spects authority, submits to the laws of the land and seeks constructive change through legal channels. *AII third person pronouns are used ge- nerically. Accreditation and Affiliations Biola University holds institutional ac­ creditation by the Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities of the Western Association of Schools and Col­ leges. In addition, the institution and certain of its programs are accredited by the

The existence of the creation is not explainable apart from the roles of God as the sovereign creator and sustainer of the entire natural realm. Concepts such as theistic or threshold evolution do not adequately explain creation. Though there may be many fillings of the Holy Spirit, there is only one bap­ tism which occurs at the time of regen­ eration. God gives His gifts to His peo­ ple, in His sovereignty and not on de­ mand. The charismatic manifestations (e.g., tongues and healing) had special significance during the revelatory period of the New Testament apostolic era and are not at all a necessary special work of the Holy Spirit today. Confession before men is viewed as a tangible fruit of salvation and not as a quali­ fying condition for salvation. Teaching biblical studies for academic credit at Biola University is a complex situ­ ation. A major goal of all teaching is for the student to gain knowledge and under­ standing of the subject matter as well as fa­ miliarity with the methodology of the field. Such a goal is of importance here. The Scriptures, however, are considered more than academic subject matter. They are the Word of God written for the purpose of revealing God and His actions with the de­ sire of bringing people to harmony with Him. Our acceptance of the divine nature and intent of Scripture gives ultimate meaning and direction to all studies relating to the Scriptures. Entailed in the further­ ance of the divine intent of Scripture are many facets of study ranging from the practical procedures for the propagation of the Christian faith to the highly technical dimensions of critical biblical studies and philosophical theology. Throughout this di­ versity of endeavors and the wide variety of gifts and skills employed, however, all participants are finally engaged in a com­ mon task which may be summarily stated as the understanding, acceptance and propagation of the biblical faith.
