WHAT WE BELIEVE
The Nicene Creed
I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father by whom all things were made.
Who, for us men and for our salvation, came down from heaven, was incarnated by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered, and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the living and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.
And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father and the Son: who with the Father and the Son together is worshipping the glorified; who spoke by the prophets.
And I believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. I acknowledge one baptism, as a sign for the remission of sins; and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.
Mission, Vision, & Baptist Faith & Message 2000
Our mission is to glorify God by providing an excellent classical Christian education founded upon a biblical worldview that equips students to live purposefully and intelligently in service to God and others.
We aim to graduate students, who think clearly and listen carefully with discernment and understanding; who reason persuasively and articulate precisely; who are capable of evaluating their entire range of experience in the light of the Scriptures; and who do so in joyful submission to God. We strive to build a legacy of intelligent and thoughtful leaders who will pursue a purposeful life marked by truth.
Professional and diligent in their work, our faculty are called and equipped to teach and inspire, loving and nurturing students and have a passion for the subjects they teach. They clearly understand how Christ-centered classical education works in their classrooms, and they possess a lifelong thirst to learn and grow. Our faculty coach and nurture new staff and serve as academic mentors to students, as they mature in Christ and grow in the knowledge of God.
We aim to cultivate in our parents a sense of community and responsibility toward the school; to see them well informed about the goals of the classical and Christ-centered approach. We strive to encourage them to be actively and intently involved in and excited about the school. We aim to equip them to follow biblical principles in addressing concerns, to be inclined to hear both sides of a story before rendering a verdict, and to embrace the Scripture’s injunctions to encourage and stir up one another to love and good works.
Finally, in our relationship with our community, we aim to be above reproach. We seek to exemplify the unity of the body of Christ, to develop greater fellowship and understanding with the churches, and to bring honor to our Lord in all our endeavors.
