Mission and Beliefs

Mission 

To proclaim Jesus Christ in all aspects of our program, emphasizing academic excellence and biblical Christian values, partnering with parents and the church to prepare godly young men and women so they may impact their world for Christ.  

What We Believe

As seen in the SCS statement of faith, we believe and teach that God has given mankind the inerrant Old and New Testaments as our sure guide for faith and practice. It is by these Scriptures and His created universe that we learn about God’s holy and immutable nature, trinitarian personhood as well as His plans to redeem man from his rebellion and estrangement through the life, death and resurrection of Christ and sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit.  

The truth of God’s sure promises found within the Scriptures give the Christian hope, direction, and purpose in this life and the one to come.  

How We Live In Community 

The SCS community is very fortunate to have students from many church communities. We relish the diversity of the Body of Christ within SCS and seek to honor each denominational tradition while remaining true to orthodoxy. 

We do this by living into to the little phrase of the 17th Century German theologian, Rupertus Meldenius that is common within the Christian tradition.  

 “In essentials – unity, in non-essentials – liberty, and in all things – charity” 

 This idea allows us to emphasize the essentials that give the Christian community unity, practice charitable discourse about our differences, and practice love one toward another.
