Education Philosophy

Spiritual Objectives

Summit Christian School recognizes that God’s Word is the foundation for all of life, we seek 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.

SCS strives to provide an exceptional education with specific focus on a biblical worldview and character development.  Through the use of biblical and secular curriculum students are taught see the world as it relates to the Bible and how we are to live and interact according to its precepts.

  • The Bible is the verbally inspired special revelation of God to man.
  • God, the creator of the world, is the sustainer of the world.
  • Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to earth to die for sinful man.
    It is necessary to be born again through faith in the finished work of Christ.
  • The child sees his need to worship, adore, and praise the Lord.
  • 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.
  • The principles of the Bible set the standard for ethics and morality in every area of life.
  • The Bible is relevant to all subject areas.
  • The child sees the importance of getting along with non-Christians and Christians who hold differing views.

Statement Of Faith

Summit Christian School provides a Biblical, Christ-centered education that inspires young men and women to develop and apply their unique God-given talents, enabling them to be a blessing wherever God takes them.

  • 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.
