The Institute gives the student an opportunity to experience personally our motto: "Christian discipleship within a caring community." One's physical, intellectual, psychological, social, and devotional progress becomes "discipleship" when one advances in maturity as a believer, doing everything "unto the Lord." Some activities and behaviors may be harmless by themselves and one may feel that they are matters of individual conscience. However, for the spiritual welfare of the student and also to protect the name of BICS, some of these behaviors will be regulated by the Institute. The standards of The Berkshire Institute for Christian Studies include disapproval of certain practices generally agreed upon by evangelical Christians as dampening or quenching spiritual growth. Elaboration on these standards will be found in The Student Handbook. Behavior detrimental to community life at the Institute may lead to dismissal.
