Statement of Faith

Community Christian School (CCS), the Board of Directors, Administration, Faculty and Staff hold that God the Father is the very Creator and sustainer of all life (Colossians 1:16-17). Man is created in God's image and is a sinner fallen from grace by the original sin of Adam and Eve in the garden (Genesis 1:27).

We believe in a triune God (the Father, Son and Holy Spirit), that God sent His Son in human form to live on this earth as an example and that He shed His blood on the cross, suffered death and was resurrected three days later, atoning for our sins and providing for us the way back to relationship with the Father.

Following Christ’s death and resurrection, the Father sent a Comforter in the Holy Spirit who guides and teaches the believer to discern truth (John 16:13). Because man is cursed and deceived by Adam's act and our God-image is marred by sin, there is a need for us to be born again and re-created in God's image through Christ (Romans 3:23; John 3:7, and II Corinthians 5:17).

We believe that God created everything, as told in Genesis; therefore everything ultimately has relationship with God. Psalm 24:1 states "The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof; the world and they that dwell therein. "As a result, we believe that nothing can be even partially secular.

This is why we seek to impart wisdom (knowing that it only comes from God). A Biblical perspective in every subject area is our fundamental basis of all teaching.

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is infallible and is the primary source of all truth. Therefore, the integration of God's Word in all that is studied and all that is done is vital to our educational process. (John 17:17)

It is our purpose to instill in our students a view of themselves as uniquely created, loved by their Heavenly Father and made in His image. CCS believes the primary teacher/trainer is the parent. Parents are ultimately responsible for the development of their child. Our part in this educational process is to be a support to parents, to assist in training their children in the way that they should go. We consider this to be a blessed and awesome privilege.
