About Us

Mission

Faith Christian School endeavors to further God’s kingdom by providing an exceptional college-preparatory education from a biblical perspective in patnership with families and churches, so that students are spiritually, academically, socially, and physically equipped for servant leadership to the glory of God.

Our Mission here at Faith extends well beyond the classroom. We want our students to be prepared for the current season of life they are in as well as the next. Our goal is to prepare them for college, for life, and for eternity.

Faith-Based Education

Faith Christian School is not only a college-preparatory school, but a biblically-based school as well.  FCS is a nondenominational school, all of our Faculty and Staff are believers from a variety of denominations. While our teachers may differ on some doctrine, we are all in agreement with the core beliefs that the school was founded on which are listed below. Students are required to take a Bible class every year, however all of our teachers teach from a biblical worldview where the Scriptures permeate everything that they teach. We not only want your children to receive a quality education that will prepare them for college, but one that will also prepare them for life and eternity as well.

Letter from HoS

Dear FCS Students and Parents,

It is my privilege to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year at Faith.  We believe that God is at work here and are excited to be a part of what He is doing.  Our mission is to provide an exceptional college preparatory educational program from a biblical perspective for each student, and our faculty, staff, and administration are committed to doing that with Christ-honoring excellence. 

Our educational program is exceptional, which is defined as “superior or unusually good.”  Faith’s superior program starts with our faculty, who do a great job of teaching in such a way that not only the minds of our students are impacted, but also their hearts and lives.  Students are challenged toward excellence in all areas of their lives – academically, spiritually, physically, and socially.

As a college preparatory program, our students are prepared for future success at the next level of their educational journey.  From ACT scores to scholarship amounts to dual-enrollment opportunities, students at Faith have an advanced level of success that enables them to pursue their dreams, interests, and callings.

What makes Faith Christian School unique and a one-of-a-kind school in this area is that our school program, while both exceptional and college preparatory, is also taught from a biblical perspective.  This Christian worldview in our program helps students to develop a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and prepares our students to see the world from God’s perspective and to use their talents and abilities to serve and honor the Lord in their lives.

While we at Faith Christian School are thankful that you have entrusted us with the education of your children, we also are aware that we cannot do it alone and desire to be partners with you and your church in that education.  So please pray for us, support us, and get involved with us in the education of your children.  Let us know when you have questions or need information.  We will regularly attempt to communicate with you and ask that you regularly attempt to communicate with us as well.

As a means of informing and communicating, FCS provides you with a handbook, which is filled with the school’s purpose, procedures, and operational policies.  Please be familiar with the types of information that are found in your handbook and refer to it when you have questions or need information.  Please note however that the School Board of FCS, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to change any policy or procedure as needed at any time after reasonable notice. 

I am excited to begin this new school year.  Please let me know when I can help you in any way.  Blessings on a great school year!

– Chip Jones

Core Values

  1. Necessity of Christ

1 Corinthians 2:2 – “For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.”

  1. Authority of the Bible

2 Timothy 3:14–17 – “But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.  All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”

  1. Community of Grace

Titus 2: 11-14 – “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.  It teaches us to say ‘no’ to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope – the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.”

  1. Excellence in Academics

2 Peter 1:3 – “His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us to his own glory and excellence.”

  1. Preparation for Life

Romans 12: 1-2 – “I urge you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.  And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.”

Statement of Faith

  1. We believe the Bible is the written Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts.  The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.
  2. We believe in the Holy Trinity.  There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe that all are sinners and therefore unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure.
  4. We believe that salvation is by God alone, by grace alone, by Christ alone, and received by faith alone, and is not based upon any human merit.
  5. We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, Who, through His perfect life and sacrificial death, atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him alone for salvation.
  6. We believe that Jesus was raised from the dead, ascended into Heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father.
  7. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust and follow Christ.
  8. We believe that God has established His Church and is gracious and faithful to His people according to His Covenant promises.
  9. We believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.
  10. We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Educational Philisophy

  1. God is the source of all truth, and the Bible is given by Him as our supreme and final authority.
  2. All aspects of our educational program will be taught from a Biblical perspective. 
  3. Students are created in the image of God with unique physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual gifts, and therefore are valued individuals, whose primary purpose is to glorify God.
  4. Students will model what they see; therefore, by God’s grace, all faculty and staff should strive to be Christian role models.
  5. Students will be challenged through a variety of appropriate instructional strategies and learning activities.
  6. Students are personally responsible and accountable for their behavior and personal integrity.
  7. Students learn most effectively in a safe, structured, healthy environment.
  8. Faith Christian School works in partnership with families in education, yet the final responsibility for children’s academic and spiritual development is at home.
  9. Commitment to continuous school improvement is essential for students to become confident, self-directed, life-long learners.
  10. Faith Christian School emphasizes spiritual development, academic excellence, and extra-curricular activities as a means to glorify God.
