Spiritual Life


Wheaton College is a distinctively Christian institution in all different aspects of campus life, including offering a variety of places of worship. Meeting in chapel three times a week, campus small groups, and the emphasis of integration of faith and learning in the classroom are just three very visible examples of the many ways that faith is at the heart of everything we do on campus.

Building Campus Community

Originally written in 1924 by Wheaton’s second president, Charles Blanchard, the Statement of Faith articulates Wheaton’s foundational Christian convictions that guide the integration of Christian faith, learning and living among the faculty, administration, staff and students. A link to a faculty video series explaining the importance of this statement is also included.

The Community Covenant equips the members of Wheaton College to apply the Statement of Faith’s foundational Christian convictions in our love for God and one another. Originally written in 1974 under Wheaton’s fifth president, Hudson Armerding, and revised in 2003 under Wheaton’s seventh president, Duane Litfin, the Community Covenant articulates a vision for responsible Christian freedom and dependence on God’s grace.

The Student Handbook seeks to provide clear policies and procedures that foster the implementation of the Community Covenant among students.
