Philippians 2:1-5 “Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus.”
Students are encouraged to create and protect positive, appropriate relationships with friends, family, significant others, and fellow students. Learn how to say "no" politely, but with determination. Be a good steward of your time; fun and fellowship are essential, but the reason you are here is to study and prepare for ministry. Set boundaries for yourself and share them with your friend(s), family, and especially your roommate. Clear communication of boundaries is crucial. Likewise, you should honor the boundaries that have been set by others. Be mindful and respectful of other people’s preferences. Not everyone will find your jokes funny or your comments beneficial; you should make every effort to put the needs of others before yourself.
Unity in Diversity
CCCB does not unlawfully discriminate based on race, color, sex, age, disability, nationality, or ethnic origin in employment, admissions, financial aid, or participation in College programs. God created us in His image, male and female, with a spectrum of colors and languages spread across the globe. It is not wise, nor is it acceptable to dishonor someone based on these differences; instead, we should celebrate those differences, attributing our diversity to the God who created us. No acts of prejudice or racism or disrespect will be excused for any reason. All incidents, regardless of the perpetrator, should be reported. And more importantly, the community should not accept or condone any such divisiveness. Speak up for each other; promote unity wherever you go. Psalm 133:1 says, “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brothers to dwell together in unity!
