Mission, Core Values, & Philosophy

 

Our Aim

Our mission is to kindle the love of learning in our children so that they desire and achieve a thorough knowledge of God and His creation in all its forms.

Our vision is that our children would be classically educated servants of God with a biblical worldview, which enables them to succeed at any calling in life.

Our Philosophy

  • Believing that all things were created by God and reality is most fully understood within the context of His creative and redemptive purposes, we affirm that God is the author of all truth, not just “religious” truth. All creation is continually sustained by the Word of His power and reflects His goodness and order.
  • Believing the Holy Scripture to be the only inerrant, authoritative Word of God, we affirm that students learn best in an environment acknowledging and submitting to, rather than suppressing, the authority of God and His Word in every area of life and study.
  • Believing that the Scriptures command us to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind, and not to “conform” to the [thinking] pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of our minds, we affirm that students must be taught to think carefully and analytically for God’s glory.
  • Believing that our primary goal is to provide students with both a Biblical worldview and the intellectual tools necessary to assimilate experiences of reality into that worldview, we affirm that our educational pedagogy must enable students to make sense of the world in which they live and equip them to discover the gifts God has given and to fulfill God’s purpose for their lives.
  • Believing that Scripture teaches in Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and Ephesians 6:1-4 that parents are responsible for the education of their children, we affirm that we are delegated authority by the parents, to assist them in the education of their children. We may not usurp the parents’ God given parental duty and responsibility, and parents are encouraged to participate in their child’s education at the school.

Our Beliefs

We believe that God reveals Himself through creating, preserving, and governing all things. He makes Himself more fully known through the Scriptures which, in their original form, are the only inerrant and infallible Word of God, our ultimate, final, and authoritative rule for faith and practice.

We believe that there is but one infinite, eternal, self-existent, self-sufficient, omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, perfect, and good God. In the unity of the Godhead, there are three persons, of one substance, power, and eternity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The Father is neither begotten nor proceeding; the Son is eternally begotten of the Father; and the Holy Spirit is eternally proceeding from the Father and the Son.

We believe that man’s purpose is to bring glory to God by enjoying Him for eternity.

We believe man’s purpose was distorted when Adam sinned in disobedience toward God, thereby breaking fellowship with Him. Through the Fall of Adam, sin extended to all mankind. We are all born sinners, spiritually dead, relationally and eternally separated from God.

We believe that Jesus Christ, who was fully God and fully man, was born of a virgin and came to earth to give His life on the cross as the perfect, complete, and sole propitiation for our sins.  

We believe that the Father raised Jesus from the dead on the third day, after He had provided a full redemption for all those who, by God’s grace alone through faith alone, turn from their sins and trust and have faith in Jesus Christ.

We believe God will regenerate all for whom Christ died through the invincible power of the Holy Spirit. Christ will one day return to judge the world and deliver His faithful. A persevering, personal faith in Christ, which is the gift of God, is the only way to eternal salvation for mankind.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.  While faith and salvation do not proceed from works or godliness, we believe that works always proceed from authentic faith in conformity to God’s Word and for His glory.

We believe that all people are created in the image of God and that life is sacred from the time of conception.

We believe that God created us immutably male and female as a reflection of His image and that He defined marriage as the life-long covenant between one man and one woman.  All forms of sexual activity outside of marriage are sinful, harmful, and outside the bounds of God’s established creation norms.

We believe that the Father has given Christ all authority in heaven and earth; that He is Sovereign Lord of all creation and every area of life, not just “religious” or “spiritual” life; that Christians are commanded to love Him with all their minds as well as their hearts and souls; that Christians love Him with their minds by refusing to conform to unbiblical thinking patterns of the world and by renewing their minds and transforming their thinking patterns to take every thought captive to Christ.
