Church Membership *
I understand that participation in this program is contingent upon maintaining membership, in good standing in a healthy church which is in agreement with CST's Doctrinal Essentials. I understand that if for some reason my church teaches or espouses doctrine in conflict with CST's Doctrinal Essentials, it may effect my participation in CST's programs. Likewise, discontinuing membership with a local church may effect my participation in my program. Also, if I am moving to the area it is my responsibility to find and join a church that supports my involvement in CST.
I have read and understand CST's Doctrinal Essentials. I understand that agrrement to the Doctrinal Essentials is requred for all students and staff. *
I have read and understand CST's Doctrinal Distinctives. I understand that these distinctives are required of faculty and staff, but not of students. I have also understood that these represent positions being taught by CST and I understand I do not need to hold or adopt these views to particpate in CST. A the same time, I agree not to undermine these views as I particapte in the program. *
Partnerships *
I understand that Cascade School of Theology is a partnership between a number of organizations and that CST is not an accredited institution. I understand that the accreditation for the program and the degree granting authority comes form CST's partner Sioux Falls Seminary.
I confirm that the above information, to the best of my knowledge, is accurate and truthful. *
