Our Core Values
Faith (belief, trust, confidence in God): We believe Jesus Christ is God’s Son and the only Lord and Savior of all creation. We believe a personal faith in Him is essential to the Christian life with personal responsibility to develop and exercise this faith for God's glory. (Matthew 16:13-17; Ephesians 1:3-14; Colossians 1:15-23; Hebrews 9:11-15)
Relationships (Jesus, students, teachers, parents, church and/or community): We believe the school shares a partnership with the parents/guardians and the local church to build a personal relationship between students and Jesus Christ. We believe teachers instruct and serve as role models for students. We believe students have the personal responsibility to apply Biblical truths in their relationships. (Deuteronomy 6:1-9; John 13:12-17; Ephesians 6:4 I Timothy 4:10 16)
Understanding (knowledge and application): We believe God is the pre-existent Creator and the ultimate source of all truth and knowledge. We believe success in education is reflected in a child’s confidence and ability to apply what he or she has learned to situations inside and outside of the classroom. We believe a Biblically based education targets the child's mind, body, heart and worldview. We believe intentional learning opportunities develop skills and gifts needed for the completion of each developmental stage. (Genesis 1-2; Proverbs 2:1-11 & 3:1-18; Genesis 1-2; Romans 1:18-32; Romans 12:1-2; Ephesians 4:20-24)
Integrity (accountability, excellence, honesty, transparency): We believe it is important to prepare our minds for action by applying the principles of Biblical integrity. We believe it is important for the world to see that we are set apart and made Holy, in Christ, so that the world may know Him. (Matthew 5:3-16 & 18:15-17; Acts 2:42-47; Romans 12:3-12, I Corinthians 12:7-11, Galatians 5:22-23; I Peter 1:13-16)
Truth (discernment, wisdom): We believe God’s Word, the Bible, is the only source of truth. We believe the Bible provides the instruction and direction which determines our goals, our actions, our speech and the foundation for our relationships with others. (II Timothy 3:16-17; Proverbs 4:20-27; Ephesians 4:25-5:20
Our Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God (II Timothy3:15, II Peter 1:21).
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons - the Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19 and John 10:30).
We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33), his virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Luke 1:35), his sinless life (Hebrews 4:15 & 7:26), his miracles (John 2:11), his vicarious and atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9), his resurrection (John 11:25, I Corinthians 15:4), his ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19) and his personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11).
We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace and through faith are we saved (John 3:15-21 & 5:24, Romans 3:23, 5:8-9 & 6:1-10, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5).
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those that are saved to the resurrection of life and those that are lost to the resurrection of damnation (Matthew 25: 31-46 & John 5:28-29).
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9, I Corinthians 12:12-13, Galatians 3:26-28).
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14, I Corinthians 3:16 & 6:19-20, Ephesians 4:30 & 5:18).
We believe in the equality of races because there is no distinction in God’s treatment of people (Romans 2:11, Ephesians 5:18).
We believe in the Lord’s Great Commission, that we are bound to extend the gospel of God to all we reach (Matthew 28:18).
We believe in the physical return of Jesus Christ to claim the saved and judge the lost (Matthew 24:42-44, 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11; Revelation 19:11-18).
We believe in the unique creation of male and female in the image of God and in the sanctity of marriage defined as the union of one man and one woman (Genesis 1:27 & 2:24, Matthew 19:4-6, Ephesians 5:31).
We believe all Christians are called and gifted by God for ministry in His Kingdom (Romans12:3-8, I Corinthians 12:7-13).
