— OUR MISSION


OUR CORE VALUES
Creation in the image of the one living and true God bestows special dignity and value on all human beings, and mandates us to be God's agents of creativity, care, and compassion in the world.
  1. God is the author of all truth (John 14:6; John 8:32)
    • God is Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer and Restorer of His world (Col 1:15-17)
    • In Him is all knowledge (Colossians 2:3)
    • God's unified truth in His Word (John 17:17) and in His world (Romans 1:19-20) is the lens through which we view education
  2. God created humans in His image (Gen. 1:27)
    • Each individual has intrinsic value and is worthy of respect (Acts 17:29; Deut. 6:5)
    • Each individual has unique gifts needing to be developed (1 Cor. 12)
  3. God created humans for community (Acts 2:42-47)
    • Community reflects God's triune nature and is best expressed in a relationship with Him through Christ, and with others (Gen. 1:26-28; 1John 4:9-12)
    • Community requires service (1 Pet. 4:7-10)
    • Community extends beyond our local boundaries (Is. 12:4; Matt. 28:19)
    • Community resources require wise stewardship (Col. 3:23-24; Matt. 25:21)
