The statement is crucial for the non-denominational school where beliefs and employment are tied together.
The college’s statement of faith includes 12 statements, including its views on God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
Some saw Hawkins’s comments as a betrayal of Middle Eastern Christians who have been persecuted by Muslims, while others believe that her comments reflect their relationship with Islam.
And some have criticized Hawkins for standing alongside more theologically liberal leaders during her press conferences while others criticize the college for taking it to the press first.

(Stacey Wescott/Chicago Tribune via AP) When Wheaton College professor Larycia Hawkins stands before a group of her peers next month for their judgment, at stake will be not only Hawkins but the future of evangelicalism.It’s not the first time Wheaton has wrestled with theology and identity.But the Hawkins case exploded in the thick of a national conversation about the place of Islam, and about race and privilege.(Wheaton did not respond to a question about whether faculty can say Jews and Christians worship the same God.) The initial question was whether Hawkins’s Facebook post violates the statement of faith. In a statement from December on its website, Wheaton officials said Hawkins’s post was an “unqualified assertion of religious solidarity with Muslims and Jews.” “We believe there are fundamental differences between the two faiths,” they said.Hawkins released a theological statement she provided to the college in which she affirms the doctrine of the Trinity and acknowledges differences between the two religions.How the debate unfolded Hawkins posted on Facebook in December that she would wear the hijab in solidarity with Muslim women during Advent, and her comment — Christians and Muslims worship the same God — set off a slew of reactions.
