TEACHING WITH A BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW
The church and its ministry through the academy is committed to equal employment opportunity for all qualified persons, without regard to race, color, ancestry, national origin, sex, marital status (So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27) Moreover, students are taught that God created marriage to be a union between one man and one woman – this is the representation of a God-intended family. (For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. Genesis 2:24), physical handicap, medical condition, or age, to the extent required by law. This statement applies to all employment practices, including hiring, promotions, training, disciplinary action, termination, and benefits. We also expect every employee to be a born-again Christian and an active member of Parkridge Church or other like-faith church.
Nothing in this Equal Employment Opportunity Policy in any way alters the principles set forth in Parkridge Church’s Guiding Principles. The church's and consequently the Academy’s equal opportunity objectives are at all times subject to the Guiding Principles. It is of the utmost importance, for the proper functioning of our ministry, that all employees be professing Christians committed to the principles stated in the church's Guiding Principles. Violation of this policy may result in disciplinary action up to and including termination.
