Warner Pacific is a Christ-centered urban liberal arts college dedicated to providing students from diverse backgrounds an education that prepares them to engage actively in a constantly changing world. The College was founded in 1937 by the Church of God (Anderson, Indiana) and maintains a covenant relationship with that body. Central to Warner Pacific's identity as a Christ-centered higher education institution is the policy of hiring persons whose personal and professional lives reflect:

1.   A belief in the deity of and commitment to Jesus Christ and the Christian faith, as interpreted through the historic witness of Scripture and the continuing ministry of the Holy Spirit.
2.   The practice of following Christ through day-to-day personal lifestyle choices.
3.   A vitality of Christian experience maturing in insight and application and appreciative of differing viewpoints.
4. A commitment to life-long learning and service through personal and professional development.
5.  For teaching faculty, the expression of artful teaching, based on mastery of relevant subject matter and in an environment of purposeful and rigorous inquiry amongst a community of scholars who support one another.
6. A capability, by temperament, preparation, and will, to support students as they confront the intellectual, social, physical, emotional, and spiritual challenges of their lives.
7.   A sensitivity to and support for the mission, core themes, vision, values, ethos and traditions of the Warner Pacific College community.
8. A commitment to teaching and serving in harmony with the doctrines of the Bible as understood and generally held by the Church of God Reformation Movement.

Employee Agreement:
Mission-based hiring is of critical importance to Warner Pacific College. From its inception, the Church of God has resisted condensing the Scriptures into a formal creed, instead emphasizing salvation as the entrance into the body of Christ; unity in diversity; and a call to holy living as God's people representing Christ in the world. Warner Pacific, rather than requiring subscription to an institutional doctrinal statement, asks each employee to affirm a personal faith in Jesus Christ by providing a statement articulating the ways in which faith informs the employee's understanding of his or her vocation at Warner Pacific. Employees are expected to demonstrate and articulate a vital Christian faith and to live in a manner consistent with a Christ-centered lifestyle as informed by the Scriptures of the New Testament.

Further, to ensure orderly operations and provide the best possible work environment, all Warner Pacific College employees are expected to maintain the highest levels of ethics, professionalism, integrity, and judgment.  Employees must obey all laws governing the workplace and the business of the College, as well as treat others (students, suppliers, and co-workers) with honesty, respect, and personal dignity in all interactions.  Conduct that is malicious, abusive, threatening, dishonest or unlawful is not acceptable.  Employees who feel they are being subjected to conduct of this kind should bring the concern to Human Resources. The College environment is expected to be free from discrimination and harassment (including bullying). When an individual's behavior has direct implications for others and/or the well-being of the College community, there may be cause for institutional involvement, regardless of where the situation occurs.

Warner Pacific College desires to provide a safe and healthy environment for staff, faculty, students, visitors and guests. Therefore, smoking is not permitted on College property, in its vehicles, or at any College sponsored event. The use of illegal drugs or non-prescribed controlled substances is strictly prohibited. Use of alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, electronic cigarettes or marijuana is strictly prohibited on Warner Pacific College campuses.

All employment decisions, including hiring, promotions, compensation, benefits, transfers, and terminations are made in a manner that does not discriminate against individuals in the categories discussed above.  Because Warner Pacific is a Christian liberal arts college, the college exercises its legal right to hire Christian employees to fulfill its mission and purpose.
