Statement Of Faith:

Dordt University (Sioux Center, Iowa) and Northrise University (Ndola, Zambia) acknowledge that the Scriptures are the Word of God. As God’s infallibly and authoritatively inspired revelation, the Bible makes known the way of salvation in Jesus Christ, requires a life of obedience to the Lord, and provides the key to understanding, interpreting, and finding purpose in life.

It is expected that students will strive to obey the Lord’s teaching in every area of their lives. Students who do not share this Christian commitment may not be in a position to appreciate the Semester in Zambia’s educational and cultural experiences. Students who come to Northrise University should be fully prepared to abide by Christian standards and the policies of the program as expressed in the student handbook.
