We Believe:

  1.   The Bible is our primary authority (2 Timothy 3:15, 16). SCS will be a school that studies, teaches and seeks to obey the Bible. We will honor the Bible as God’s Word and trust it as the final   infallible authority on all matters of faith and practice.

  2.   There is one God, eternally existent in three persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), the Trinity. “Therefore go and make disciples in all nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19)

  3.   In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is to be honored as head of the church (Colossians 1:18). We will seek to follow Jesus in all we do. School leadership will pray about all decisions and seek unity, listening for the voice of Christ.

  4.   All people are created in the image and likeness of God and are to be treated with respect (Genesis 1:27). We affirm the blessings of our multicultural world, and welcome people from every race, nationality, language group and culture into our school.

  5.   The Triune God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) is to be praised. We know that God is seeking people to worship Him in Spirit and in truth, and will strive to promote Spirit led worship (chapel), held every Friday, with sincerity and passion (John 4:23). Each class is responsible for leading chapel at least once during the school year.

  6.   Prayer is to be our lifeline to God (Philippians. 4:6). We will strive to be a praying school, living in relationship with God and seeking to hear his voice. We will praise, thank God, and seek His provisions for all our needs.

  7.   We are to love each other, live in forgiveness, seek healing and personal growth (1 Peter 4:8). When we have wronged others, we will confess our sin and seek forgiveness. Whenever we feel wronged, we will care enough to confront each other in love, and take the proper steps (Matthew 18: 15-17).

  8.   In the works of Jesus, he is our example (John 14:12). Jesus proclaimed and demonstrated the Kingdom of God. In his name we will pray for the sick, preach the gospel of the Kingdom, deliver the oppressed from demons and bring comfort to the downtrodden. We will do these things trusting in God, relying on the power of the Spirit and in the name and authority of Jesus.

  9.   In the value of missionary work. We will prioritize helping people to get into a right relationship with God (Matthew 28:19). Honoring God by making disciples of Jesus Christ is the purpose of the school. SCS will strive to reach the lost in all the world by helping locally, nationally, and globally. Students take an active roll in donating items for those less fortunate, raising money for missionary work, and talking to others about Jesus Christ (Matthew 25:35-40).

  10.   Every believer is to be a minister of Jesus Christ. We practice the truth that every Christian is called to service in and through the church by encouraging every student to discover their spiritual gift and find their place in life (1 Peter 4:10; 1 Corinthians 7:7; 12:4-11).
