Purpose and Values
Our Purpose: The purpose of SGA is to serve the student body, promote their interests and welfare, ensure understanding throughout the Biola community and foster a Christ-centered community.
“Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”
—1 Peter 1:13–16
- Growth – We want to be attentive to your needs and listen to the passions of our community in order to grow in knowledge together. We invest in relationships with those we represent, seeking to leave a lasting mark by building others up spiritually and physically.
- Prayer – We are a body of leaders committed to praying for our colleagues, campus and community. We recognize that without God’s favor, nothing will prosper or last.
- Service – We craft action steps based on the needs of our community, committing to love in both words and deeds. We also go outside of our walls to pour into our local community and be a part of the work God is doing around us.
- Integrity – We strive to care for your resources with integrity. We aim to make our information accessible so you can participate in the democratic process of student government, and for us to effectively participate in your student life.
