Therefore, the faculty at Brewton-Parker College has a proud heritage of valuing the importance of faith and learning. Throughout the history of the college, faculty members have attempted to provide a liberal arts education grounded in the understanding of the Christian tradition.
In this faith and learning statement, we reiterate our commitments to the following historic principles of church related education. The principle of soul competency, the worth of the individual, and the freedom of individual conscience are respected as foundational to the student’s role in the learning process.

Dedicated to academic freedom, Brewton-Parker’s faculty members continue to be committed to using their God-given talents to seek truth in all lines of scholarship. In doing so, they aspire, as they feel led, to encourage their colleagues and students to integrate their personal faith into their teaching, learning, and interactions. They also strive to promote a sincere spirit of Christ-like tolerance; to provide an open and nurturing environment to explore all intellectual avenues; and to strive to act toward others, both inside and outside the classroom, in a manner that honors the example set by Christ.
