Our History and Mission

In 2017 a group of local believers purchased the old 7th Day Adventist School on Dudley Corners Road with the intention of starting a church and school. In May 2019 Faith Bible Church was founded and in the fall of 2019 Faith Christian School opened its doors.

The mission of the school from day one was to partner with parents in the education and training of their children.  Faith Christian School's mission is guided by three words: God, Family, and Country. The mission that birthed Faith Christian School in 2019 is the mission that remains today. A desire to see each child grow spiritually, academically, and with a love for God, family, and country.  A desire to know each child views the world through a Biblical worldview lens. 

The school has been well received in the community and after starting with a small enrollment has enjoyed rapid growth.

Statement of Mission 

God, Family, and Country.

Faith Christian School strives to spiritually, and academically prepare students to fulfill God’s purpose for their lives. FCS partners with the home and the church in fulfilling the Biblical responsibility given to parents to raise their children “in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” Our mission is to integrate Biblical truth into all academic subjects preparing our students to live for Christ upon graduation. There are three words that guide our mission; God, Family, and Country.

Statement of Vision

The vision of FCS is to prepare students to fulfill God’s purpose for their lives foundationally, relationally, and through excellence:

Foundational: FCS is committed to building strong foundations in the lives of students. Spiritual foundations of faith in Jesus Christ, belief in God’s Word, and a Biblical worldview. Academic foundations in the core subjects of Math, Language Arts, Science, Reading, History, and Bible. Fine Arts foundations through music, art, and theatre. Character foundations through a comprehensive system that builds a strong work ethic, honesty, and integrity. FCS offers much more, but our core value is a commitment to foundationally prepare each student to fulfill God’s purpose for their lives.

Relational: FCS is a relational school. At the core of our vision is the understanding that FCS is in partnership with parents, and local churches in the education, Christian character development, and personal discipleship of its students. FCS guides and encourages students to develop real and genuine relationships with Jesus Christ. Each teacher is encouraged to have a vibrant walk with the Lord and to invest their lives in the lives of their students. Students are encouraged to value their relationship with family, church, and their fellow man. 

FCS’s retreats, chapel services, and opportunities to serve are part of our vision to see students who love the Lord and love their fellow man. It is our belief that a strong relationship with the Lord is a prerequisite to fulfilling God’s purpose in life.

Exceptional: FCS is committed to doing all to the glory of God. It is this belief that propels us to strive for excellence academically, spiritually, and in all other matters in life All are encouraged to pursue excellence in what they are (inward character) and in what they do (outward conduct). Excellence in God's eyes is doing one's best. This is in contrast to the world's standard of having to be the best. As a young person experiences success from his or her best effort, even more effort is exerted toward continued success. We believe in challenging students with this model of excellence so that they can achieve the goal of doing their best in their academic pursuits, extracurricular activities, and their service to others.

Statement of Educational Philosophy:  

The educational philosophy of FCS is based upon the understanding of Proverbs 9:10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” It is rooted in the understanding that God’s wisdom is understood through a relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior, and Lord (I Corinthians 2:14).

Faith Christian School’s philosophy of education is based on Psalm 1:1, Colossians 2:6-7, and Proverbs 9:10. The following statements identify the principles that apply to the educational process when viewed through the lens of a Biblical worldview.

1. Christian education is based on truth, of which God and His Word are the ultimate sources. God is revealed to us in nature, in His Son, and in His Word. The Bible, God’s Word is the only inerrant, authoritative, and sufficient rule for faith and practice (Psalm 8:2-4; Hebrews 1:1-3, II Timothy 3:16-17).

2. Because of the Lordship of Christ and the sovereignty of God, all areas of life and learning are regarded as sacred. (Romans 11:36)

3. Christian education is the result of all knowledge being tested against and integrated with, a Biblically-based view of God and the world (Colossians 1:16-17; John 1:3).

4. The primary responsibility in the rearing and education of children lies with the parents (Deuteronomy 6:7-8; Genesis 17:7; Proverbs 22:6). However, Faith Christian School partners with parents and churches in the education and Christian character development of students (Deuteronomy 11:18; Psalm 78:4-5).

5. The Christian teacher is the key to Christian education. The Christian teacher is empowered by the Holy Spirit enabling the teacher to instruct, admonish, and train the student. The Christian teacher sets a Godly example and seeks to encourage Christian growth in students. Christian growth is the foundation for the student’s academic, social, and personal growth (Colossians 1:28; Proverbs 1:7).

6. Christian education occurs as the Holy Spirit works in the hearts and minds of the students. Through general revelation students learn of God and His world (Acts 14:17; Romans 1:18-20) Through salvation in Jesus Christ students are provided with the ability to view life from a Biblical perspective (I Corinthians 2:14).

7. Students are created in the image of God with unique talents as well as particular developmental growth patterns. The learning process is therefore enhanced as teachers utilize varied teaching strategies and instructional environments (Psalm 139:13-15); Romans 12:4-8).

8. Students need unselfish and Christ-like service to others to fully develop their talents and abilities. (I Corinthians 12).

9. Christian education performed at a high level brings glory to God and a witness to the unsaved (Philippians 1:9-11).

10. The goal of Christian education is to spiritually and academically prepare students to fulfill God's purpose for their lives (Romans 12:2).
