OMNIS ARBOR BONA FRUCTUS BONOS FACIT
Every good tree bears good fruit. This is the principle of our philosophy. All people are created equal, with fundamental duties and rights, including social-economical duties and rights to pursue happiness. At Washington University of Virginia, we are committed to help our students bear good fruit in life and contribute to the community.
To develop men and women of character and leadership by inculcating quality Christian education through healthy institutional services so that they make meaningful contributions to the world
FORMATION OF CHARACTER
This is the ultimate goal of our education. Bearing of good fruit is tied to the state of the tree. Likewise, the measure of one’s success must also accompany the measure one’s character. The formation of character, therefore, is the foremost important education that we must endeavor ourselves.
Statement of Faith
We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe the Bible to be inspired, the one infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious atonement through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal and visible return in power and glory.
We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he was tempted by Satan and fell, and that, because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary for salvation.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life, and by whom the church is empowered to carry out Christ’s great commission.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost, those who are saved unto the resurrection of life and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
