Statement Of Faith:
Dordt College (Sioux Center, Iowa) and the Reformed University (Gereformeerde Hogeschool, in Zwolle, The Netherlands) acknowledge, in harmony with the Reformed confessions, that the Scriptures are the Word of God. As God's infallibly and authoritatively inspired revelation, the Bible makes known the way of salvation in Jesus Christ, requires a life of obedience to the Lord, and provides the key to understanding, interpreting, and finding purpose in life.

Both Dordt College and the GH aim to establish in SPICE an environment that is conducive to the academic and spiritual development and welfare of its participants. SPICE seeks as students men and women who are committed to biblical, Christian principles.

The faculty and students of SPICE constitute a Christian community in which all must seek to speak the truth in love as brothers and sisters in the Lord. Christ calls upon both faculty and students to encourage one another to lives of faithful obedience to Him. It is expected that students will strive to obey the Lord's teaching in every area of their lives. Students who do not share this Christian commitment may not be in a position to appreciate SPICE's educational and cultural experiences. Students who come to SPICE should be fully prepared to abide by Christian standards and the policies of the program as expressed in the student handbook.

I have read the above statement, and as a future member of the SPICE community, I agree to live within the expectations and policies of the program.
