Statement of Purpose

Vision Statement
"What we are and where we want to be"

The members of Sigma Iota Beta celebrate their individual strengths, weaknesses, ideals, and passions by creating a sisterhood bound by devout friendship, love, and loyalty. We recognize the social issues that extend beyond our own lives, empowering each other and uniting together to change lives and serve our community. We strive to promote the mental, physical, emotional, moral, and spiritual growth of each member, through reflection and introspection challenging each sister to attain her goals and live fully. We are proud to laugh, cry, live, learn, and love in the supportive, compassionate, humorous community of Hope College Women that IS the Sibylline Sorority.


WE BELIEVE that the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit;
therefore we shall keep it strong.

WE BELIEVE that the mind is the interpreter of God;
therefore we shall keep it pure.

WE BELIEVE that the Spirit is the essence of God;
therefore we shall keep it right.

WE BELIEVE in the glory of the out-of-doors; body, mind, and
spirit attuned to all created things: to the beauty of the dawn,
to the brightness of the noon, to the quiet of the night.

WE BELIEVE in the power of knowledge. . .in a mind at home in
the world.

WE BELIEVE in the majesty of righteousness. . .in hearts at one
with God.

Thus, we believe in the life abundant. . .the development of the
body, the enrichment of the mind, and the sanctification
of the spirit.
