A HEART TO ……..
Value the Soul- We give students opportunities to make a decision to accept Jesus as Savior in their lives. Our highest priority is the salvation of our students. Teachers and staff will actively engage in challenging students about their eternal destiny. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Value God’s Word – The Bible is the only written source of absolute truth. Each student is taught God’s word and encouraged to apply its principles to daily living. Each staff member is expected to maintain a consistent time in God’s word.. “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16, 17.
Impact the World – We equip students to impact the world for Christ. Our focus is to bring about positive, productive change for the kingdom of God. All aspects of school life exist for the purpose of reaching and changing the world for the glory of Christ. “That you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.”
Pursue Excellence – We strive to do all things in a manner pleasing to the Lord. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.” Colossians 3:23.
Instill a Christian World View – We integrate the Word of God in all subjects and activities and train our students to view life from a Biblical perspective. “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.” Colossians 2:6-8
Model Christ – We seek to model Christ in all situations. “Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ.” Philippians 1:27a
Partner With the Home –We strive to partner with families in their God-given duty to raise their children in the ways of the Lord. “Train a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6
Invest in One Another – We seek to build a community of believers founded on the basis of shared commitment, mutual investment and Christ’s love. “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” I Thessalonians 5:11
