Christian Ecumenical Values
WE BELIEVE IN GOD AS A SUPREME BEING
God is the Supreme Being who created all that exists. His power and presence are revealed in the person of his Son Jesus, the Savior, and in the Holy Spirit, that guides the community of faith.
WE BELIEVE IN JESUS
We accept that the apostolic tradition of the Scriptures recognizes and accepts Jesus as decisive, definite and normative for humans’ relations with God, their fellow men, family, and society. Since He is the Savior and Mediator of Humanity, it is our commitment to continue fostering the convergence of all Christians through the one faith around the person of Jesus.
WE BELIEVE IN LIFE
We affirm that life is a gift of God. We foment that all human beings value their life so they may be able to give their best to the country, family, and society. We promote the preservation of life and therefore promote a Christian consciousness in education.
WE BELIEVE IN THE FAMILY
We believe that the family is the essential social nucleus where the initial values that shape the person are developed. We commit ourselves to reinforce these values, from their Biblical foundation, that help each human being to achieve the complete life and make it extensive to others.
WE BELIEVE IN SERVICE
We affirm our ecumenical Christian ideal and devote our efforts to renew and reaffirm service to our country, society, family and fellow men.
WE BELIEVE IN THE IDENTITY OF THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY OF FAITH
We affirm that the conviction of being Christian implies knowledge of and obedience to the Word of God and, also, identification and commitment to the Church and to the person’s particular Christian community.
WE BELIEVE IN INTEGRAL EDUCATION
Our Christian ecumenical position provides openness to society, science, and technology, with an integral mentality, an attitude of respect, and moral conduct in harmony with our values. We foment the integral education of each person for carrying out his vocation in a responsible way and with moral conduct and productive performance in his community. We are a community of higher education in an integral search of the truth, within an environment of freedom, through the encouragement of a mature academic life that guarantees the true freedom of investigation.
WE BELIEVE IN THE COMMITMENT WITH OUR FELLOW MEN
We believe that to be Christian it is to have and show a commitment of service to others based on love and not on the dominion of society, but rather on promoting friendship, solidarity, tolerance, and understanding to bridge the human barrier.
WE BELIEVE IN THE STUDY OF THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION
We promote the study of the Christian religion as an academic discipline in which a fruitful dialog with the other academic disciplines is maintained. We will continue to strengthen the development of the religious studies program by providing all students the opportunity to acquire an understanding of the Christian faith and its implications
