Liberty University's hiring practices and EEO Statement are fully in compliance with both federal and state law. Federal law creates an exception to the "religion" component of the employment discrimination laws for religious organizations (including educational institutions), and permits them to give employment preference to members of their own religion.



Liberty University draws upon a rich tradition, institutional culture and core documents to distill doctrinal principles set forth below that all adjunct faculty members must affirm as a condition of employment. While all University employees are expected to respect the institutional character reflected in all foundational documents and recognize the duty to refrain from conduct and activities detrimental to the mission of the University, in recognition of the breadth of the historic Christian faith, the University holds inviolable for adjunct professors only those principles considered vital to the faithful pursuit of its distinctive mission, which are set forth below.



1. The Bible alone, and the Bible in its entirety, is the written Word of God and is therefore inerrant in the originals.

2. God is a Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each an uncreated person, one in essence, equal in power and glory. The world was created by God as expressed in the Genesis account of creation.

3. Jesus Christ is the only son of God, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, was born of a virgin, suffered for the sins of the whole world, was crucified, died, and was buried; on the third day he rose again bodily; he ascended into heaven; he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come again for all His church, and to judge the living and the dead.

4. All people are sinners in need of redemption by grace through faith in Christ alone. The Redeemed will enjoy everlasting life in the presence of God and unbelievers will suffer everlasting judgment in separation from God.
