ABOUT US

Sandpoint Christian School is a nondenominational faith based learning community, partnering with Christian families to promote academic excellence and prepare learners for a lifetime of commitment to Christ.

Statement of Faith  

God

We believe there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Luke 3:22, Matt. 28:19, John 1:1-3

Bible

We believe the Bible is God’s only ordained written revelation.  As such, it is authoritative, infallible, and complete in its written conveyance. 2 Peter 1:20 -21, 

2 Timothy 3:16

Jesus

“We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, who was crucified, died and buried and on the third day rose from the dead and ascended to heaven, where He is seated at the right hand of God the Father.” Hebrews 4 14-15, John 1:1-3, “Apostles Creed,”

Holy Spirit

We believe in the deity of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit’s miracle of new birth in the life of the repentant sinner and the Holy Spirit’s indwelling presence in the life of the believer.  John 16: 7-15

Humanity

We believe that man and woman were created by God and in the image of God. We believe, as a result of sin, all men and women became alienated from God, their creator.  When we accept, by faith, God’s gift of salvation, through Christ’s death on the cross, our alienation is removed, and our created purpose is evidenced.  Genesis 1:27, John 3:3-5

Grace

We believe that God offers grace and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. We believe that all actions and speech should be spoken in love and in accordance with the scripture, for it is commanded: “Love your neighbor as yourself,” “Love does no harm to a neighbor” Therefore love is the fulfillment of God’s law. (Rom 13:8-10.) (Acts 3:19-21, Rom 10:9-10)

Philosophy

Academic Excellence

SCS believes in maintaining academic standards, which promote and challenge the learner to maximize the gifts and opportunities given. When working towards our highest level of achievement, we are honoring the exhortation, to “do everything as unto the Lord.”

 

School Environment

SCS seeks to provide a safe learning environment that is conducive to the development of academic excellence and Christ-like character and behaviors.

As such, we value respectful relationships within our learning community (students, staff, and families) as well as honoring and supporting individual accomplishments and effort.

 

Personal Growth and Christian Service

SCS recognizes that God has given each individual unique gifts and abilities.  SCS strives to support learners in identifying, developing and utilizing these gifts and abilities for Christian service and God’s glory.

 

Discipleship 

SCS learning community recognizes the importance of discipleship in the life of young people.  Therefore, our school seeks to minister to and mentor, in cohort with our families, our children in a way that establishes and perpetuates growth in Christ-like character, behavior, and knowledge.

 

Content, Instructional Practices and Learning Outcomes:

SCS acknowledges that God is the source of truth, as revealed through the Bible and person of Jesus Christ.  SCS strives to ensure that our content, resource materials,

instructional practices and learning outcomes are consistent with our understanding of God’s truth as conveyed in our Mission, Vision, and Statement of Faith.

 

Christian Beliefs

SCS acknowledges various scriptural interpretations and emphasis within the Body of Christ. Therefore, we are sensitive to and respectful of differences among believers and seek unity within the Sandpoint Christian Learning Community by focusing on the Biblical teachings represented in our Statement of Faith.
