OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH

God–We believe that there is one God eternally existing in three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit and these three are co-equal, co-eternal and co-essential. Luke 3:22, Matthew 28:19, John 1:1-3

The Bible –We believe that the Bible is God’s only infallible written revelation to man and that it is verbally inspired and authoritative and completely recorded in the original manuscripts all that God intended. 2 Timothy 3:16 , 2 Peter 1: 20 , 21

Jesus —We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death on the cross to provide for our redemption, bodily resurrection and ascension into heaven, present ministry of intercession for us, and His return to earth in power and glory. John 1:1-3, Hebrews 4:14-15

Holy Spirit–We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, that He performs the miracle of the new birth in an unbeliever and indwells believers, enabling them to live a godly life. John 16:7-14

Man--We believe that man was created in the image of God, but because of sin, was alienated from God. That alienation can be removed only by accepting through faith God’s gift of salvation which was made possible by Christ’s death. Genesis 1:25 – 28, John 3:3-5

 

OUR PHILOSOPHY AND VALUES

 

Discipleship: Our primary ministry is directed toward families who have established a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Families must attend a local Christian church. The school ministry, in concert with family and church efforts, seeks to establish and perpetuate growth in Christ-like character, behavior and knowledge throughout all aspects of life and learning.

 

Curriculum: SCS acknowledges that God is the source of truth, and that He has revealed His truth to man through the Bible and the person of Jesus Christ. All instruction and materials are consistent with our understanding of God’s truth.

Academic Excellence: In light of the exhortation to “do everything as unto the Lord,” SCS maintains academic standards that challenge students to work toward their highest possible level of achievement.

School Environment: SCS seeks to provide a safe learning environment that is conducive to the development of Christ-like character and behavior, as well as academic excellence. Disciplined conduct and respectful relationships are encouraged and expected.

 

Personal Growth & Christian Service: SCS recognizes that God has granted to every individual unique gifts, talents, and abilities, some outside the academic realm. SCS fosters development of these gifts and talents for use in Christian service.

 

Doctrine: While SCS recognizes a diversity of interpretation within the Body of Christ in many areas of doctrine, the administration and staff adhere to a core of beliefs as outlined in the Statement of Faith. SCS is respectful and sensitive to doctrinal differences among believers and seeks unity in the body by focusing on fundamental biblical teaching.
