Biblical Perspective: The University accepts the 圣经s as the inspired and inerrant Word of God, and is compelled by the 圣经s to be faithful to the religious tenets articulated therein. These religious tenets are set forth in the Constitution of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod and illuminated by the Lutheran Confessions, a true and binding exposition of Holy 圣经. To the extent that these tenets permit, the University remains committed to complying with the spirit and letter of federal, 状态, and local laws affording equal educational opportunity and nondiscrimination in admission to and participation in the University’s programs and activities. 然而, 在某些情况下, 圣经, as understood by the Church and the University, requires the institution to act in ways that may conflict with certain of the regulations implementing 第九条, as interpreted by the OCR and other 状态 and local laws. This being understood, the following Statement of Purpose is set forth.
