The mission of Lansing Christian School is “to train our children, in cooperation with parents, in such a way that they, as fellow workers with God, can perform duties in this world to the glory of God, for their own well-being and for the welfare of others”.
What we believe
We believe that God exists in three persons;
- God the Father, who is creator and sustainer of the universe;
- Jesus Christ, the Father’s only begotten Son, who was sent into the world to save sinners who believe in Him and who now rules as King of the holy catholic (universal) church;
- and the Holy Spirit who was sent as the Christian’s comforter, sanctifier and guide.
We believe that the Holy Bible is the only infallible and inspired Word of God and that it must be taught and used as the guide for the Christian life, conduct, and education.
We believe that the Word of God requires Christian parents to make every effort to train their children in the fear and nurture of the Lord; and that for this reason the instruction of children in the school, as well as in the home, must be in keeping with the teachings of the Word of God. We believe that we must educate children so that they can become useful servants of their God in His Kingdom, and that they can serve as useful citizens of the society in which they live.
We believe that the primary responsibility to train children belongs to parents, and that our school depends on and belongs to parents. It does not depend on or belong to the church or state but has as its foundation the unchangeable Word of God, interpreted according to the historic creeds of the Calvinistic churches (The Heidelberg Catechism, The Belgic Confession, and The Canons of Dort). We believe we must help our students understand that God summons them to honest worship, moral discipline, and personal holiness; and that we must equip them for meaningful service in the kingdom of God.
