OBJECTIVES

Spiritual Objectives

Recognizing that God’s Word is the foundation for all of life, Summit Christian School seeks to lead children into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Daily Bible study and emphasis on practical Christian living provide a strong spiritual framework. It is our goal to help the child recognize the following truths:

  1. The Bible is the verbally inspired special revelation of God to man.
  2. God, the creator of the world, is the sustainer of the world.
  3. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to earth to die for sinful man.
  4. It is necessary to be born again through faith in the finished work of Christ.
  5. The child sees his need to worship, adore, and praise the Lord.
  6. The child sees the importance of spiritual growth which is nurtured through application of the Biblical principles of fellowship with, prayer to, and service for God.
  7. The principles of the Bible set the standard for ethics and morality in every area of life.
  8. The Bible is relevant to all subject areas.
  9. The child sees the importance of getting along with non-Christians and Christians who hold differing views.

Social Objectives

How students relate to each other and to their parents and teachers is an important emphasis in the Christian school. Christian ethics not only encourage personal spiritual growth, but wholesome social growth as well. It is our objective to encourage the student in the following ways:

  1. cooperative work and study habits,
  2. proper attitudes toward both those in authority and those in his peer group,
  3. development of wholesome attitudes which will carry over into his home life, dating life, vocational endeavors, and ultimately into the marriage relationship,
  4. development of Christian social graces, and
  5. development of proper attitudes and discipline concerning promptness and responsibility.

Physical Objectives

Summit Christian School monitors and seeks to understand the physical needs of the child. We will strive to work with the parent to help the child mature to be healthy, strong, and vitally alive. Therefore, we seek to develop the following skills for each student:

  1. the importance of proper care of his body, and

2. a sense of discretion in choosing wholesome physical recreation

 

STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe in the scripture of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired by God and inerrant in the original writings and that they are the supreme and final authority in faith and life. II Tim. 3:16

We believe in one God, eternally existing in Three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true Man.

We believe that man was created in the image of God. He sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but spiritual death, which is separation from God. All human beings are born with a sinful nature and, in the case of those who reach moral responsibility, become sinners in thought, word and deed.

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, as a representative substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood.

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven and in His present life there for us as High Priest and Advocate.

We believe in “that blessed hope”, the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
