Faith Christian School Mission Statement
Faith Christian School endeavors to further God’s kingdom by providing an exceptional college-preparatory education from a biblical perspective in partnership with families and churches, so that students are spiritually, academically, socially, and physically equipped for servant leadership to the glory of God.

Faith Christian School Vision Statement
Faith Christian School strives to prepare students for college, for life, and for eternity.

Faith Christian School Statement of Faith
  1. We believe the Bible is the written Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts.  The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.
  2. We believe in the Holy Trinity.  There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe that all are sinners and therefore unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure.
  4. We believe that salvation is by God alone, by grace alone, by Christ alone, and received by faith alone, and is not based upon any human merit.
  5. We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, Who, through His perfect life and sacrificial death, atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him alone for salvation.
  6. We believe that Jesus was raised from the dead, ascended into Heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father.
  7. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust and follow Christ.
  8. We believe that God has established His Church and is gracious and faithful to His people according to His Covenant promises.
  9. We believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.
  10. We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Faith Christian School Statement of Educational Philosophy
  1. God is the source of all truth, and the Bible is given by Him as our supreme and final authority.
  2. All aspects of our educational program will be taught from a Biblical perspective. 
  3. Students are created in the image of God with unique physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual gifts, and therefore are valued individuals, whose primary purpose is to glorify God.
  4. Students will model what they see; therefore, by God’s grace, all faculty and staff should strive to be Christian role models.
  5. Students will be challenged through a variety of appropriate instructional strategies and learning activities.
  6. Students are personally responsible and accountable for their behavior and personal integrity.
  7. Students learn most effectively in a safe, structured, healthy environment.
  8. Faith Christian School works in partnership with families in education, yet the final responsibility for children’s academic and spiritual development is at home.
  9. Commitment to continuous school improvement is essential for students to become confident, self-directed, life-long learners.
  10. Faith Christian School emphasizes spiritual development, academic excellence, and extra-curricular activities as a means to glorify God.
