OUR PURPOSE

Life Christian School adopts the historic, Christian view of life as presented in the Bible. Since God created and sustains everything through His Son, Jesus Christ, the world and life are God-centered and should glorify Him. Man being a sinner by nature and choice, however, cannot in this condition glorify or know God. He can do this only by being recreated in God’s image through committing his life to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. The total process of education, therefore, must seek this restoration of student to the position of true knowledge, righteousness, and holiness in Christ by developing and relating the whole person to God spiritually, mentally, socially, and physically. It must present all truth as God’s truth and must be integrated with God’s Word. Such education is first the parents’ responsibility, and second, the school should function as an extension of the home to aid the parents in giving this education. (Deuteronomy 6:4-9).
