Sigma Phi Lambda statement of purpose:

Sigma Phi Lambda exists for the sole purpose of glorifying our Lord Jesus Christ and making His name great. This is done by providing a source of fellowship to Christian women who sincerely seek to know His person, His will, and His ways. Sigma Phi Lambda is an organization of sisters for the Lord where fellowship with our most high God is fostered by growth in unity with one another.

The purpose comes from the name, “for the Lord.” Col. 3:23, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord.”

Because of this purpose, the sorority is not presently nor will it ever be Pan-Hellenic. It is the sorority’s desire to abide by the rules God has given rather than the rules and traditions of the Pan-Hellenic society.

Sigma Phi Lambda was founded in 1988 at the University of Texas. Texas State University, located in San Marcos, Texas, is the Epsilon chapter, founded in Spring 1997.
