History 

  1. core values
    Resident artist, Paula Giltner, painted the Core Values mural in the Casteel Administration Building.
    The Word of Christ Taught in the Spirit of Christ (Colossians 1:28)
    We believe the Bible is the true and authoritative Word of God and our final rule of faith and practice. We want to teach God's Word faithfully, in harmony with God's Spirit.
  2. Not to Be Served But to Serve (Mark 10:45)
    We are a servant of the church, training vocational and volunteer servant leaders for the worldwide work of ministry. It is the commitment of teachers, staff and students that we will love and serve others.
  3. Speaking the Truth in Love (Ephesians 4:15)
    We want to honor God by fulfilling our personal responsibility to be honest and caring with one another.
  4. Trusting in the Power of God and Seeking the Glory of God (1 Corinthians 4:20 and Isaiah 42:8)
    We are absolutely and utterly dependent upon God. The work is too great for human resources. We pursue excellence, knowing all glory is God's and any accomplishment is of Him.
  5. Atmosphere of Grace, Trust, and Freedom (Romans 15:7 and 1 Peter 4:10)
    We accept one another as imperfect people saved by the grace of God. Mutual trust, based on our commitment to the Lord, guides our relationships. We desire each person to have freedom to develop God-given gifts.
  6. Restoring Biblical Christianity (John 17:21)
    We are committed to teaching and practicing Biblical Christianity, believing it is central to unity among believers and evangelization of the world.
  7. Worship in Spirit and Truth (John 4:23-24)
    We foster spiritual health through genuine worship, both personal and public. Worship is for the glory of God, exhortation from His Word, and edification of the community of faith.
