Spiritual Emphasis

Spiritual Vitality

Surrounded by teachers who have made their relationship with Jesus Christ the foundation of their lives, students are encouraged daily in their spiritual walk with God. Bible classes offer opportunities for students to learn and grow in the ways of the Lord, as well as to discuss how real-life issues can be understood and addressed in light of God’s Word. Students and faculty come together weekly at chapel service to refocus their energy and attention on the Lord and his Word.

Love God

We strive to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. It is both with and through a growing relationship with Him that we lay the foundation of who we are. This means worship, the word of God, and prayer are a priority in all of our gatherings. (Hebrews 4:12, John 4:24, 1 Chronicles 16:11)

Love Others

We want to be extravagantly generous to all people in everything we say and do. From expressing gratitude and showing love, to taking time and spending resources, we want to be a tangible representation of Jesus in every interaction. This means evangelism, building relationships, and growing people’s potential is vital in our ministries. (Luke 10:27, Acts 2:42, Matt. 28:19-20)

Pursue Excellence

In all we are, and all we do, we give every effort to do the best we can every time. It’s not about being perfect, having all the answers, or never being wrong. Rather, we give our best each time and continually seek ways to improve. This means we do everything with intentionality, balance, and consistency because the gospel deserves our very best just as God gave us His best. (Colossians 3:23)

Choose Joy

Life isn’t perfect, nor does it always go our way. Still, in every disappointment, we have the opportunity to choose how we will respond…God is always faithful and always for us, so we make it a point to see the good and choose joy in every circumstance. This means we are becoming disciples that recognize attitude is everything, therefore we are choosing to be generous, kind, and patient toward others. (Matthew 20:28, Philippians 2:5)
