Our Athletic Program
New Life Athletics Core Values
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)
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)
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)
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)
We view athletics as an opportunity to glorify Jesus Christ through the conditioning and performance of young bodies and spirits in competitive play. We strive to present a unique presentation of athletic competition–one that is a testimony of the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ being seen in the lives of our student athletes. As you read the following pages you will note the consistency of this commitment in all areas of our athletic program – New Life Christian School Athletics Handbook NLCS Athletics Handbook. The Athletic Participation/Permission Form is to be filled out by parent and physician and filed in the office of the principal before the student can participate in the school athletic programs.
