Statement of Faith

 

God: We believe in the one true God, the Creator of the universe, who is eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We celebrate his sovereign purpose for all aspects of life, education, and our school community. (Psalm 78:4; Colossians 1:16-19; Ephesians 4:4-6) 

God’s Word to Us: Scripture is God-breathed and unified in the one story it tells. It is the supreme standard for faith, life, and learning, and it guides our teaching and values. (2 Timothy 3:16-17) 

God’s Grace for Us: We lament the sinful nature of humanity and the pervasive brokenness in our world. We recognize our need for redemption through Jesus Christ. Because of God’s love and justice, he sent his only Son, and through Christ’s perfect life, sacrificial death, and triumphant resurrection, provides the way for salvation and eternal life. Salvation is a gift of grace. We are accepted and approved because of what Christ has done for us not because of what we do. Our faith is anchored in Christ alone. (Genesis 3:16-19; John 14:6; Galatians 2:16; Philippians 3:20-21; Hebrews 12:2) 

God’s Plan for Us: We believe in building a family of students, parents, and educators who partner together to provide a Christ-centered, academically rigorous education. We believe in equipping our students to advance God’s Kingdom, recognizing that our role is to be light in the world. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Matthew 5:13-16; 1 Peter 4:16) 

God’s Hope for Us: We look forward to the ultimate fulfillment of God’s kingdom and the restoration of all creation when Christ returns, and we teach our students to eagerly anticipate this future hope. (1 Peter 5:10; 2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:3-5) 

Conclusion: Our faith permeates every aspect of our educational philosophy and practice at Lansing Christian School. We are dedicated to nurturing the spiritual, intellectual, and social growth of our students in alignment with these foundational beliefs. 

We invite students, parents, and staff to embrace and engage with our Statement of Faith and wrestle with its implications while fostering a community where these beliefs are not only professed but lived out in our daily pursuit of academic excellence and Christian discipleship.
