The Friends Experience

Spiritual Life

A campus-wide school theme is chosen each school year as a focus point and challenge for students and staff to live out. This year the theme is: STAND FIRM —“Therefore put on the armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” (Ephesians 6:13)

At Friends Christian School, our students learn that

  • Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior
  • He died on the cross to set us free from the penalty of our sin
  • We are called to grow in our relationship with God
  • God is trustworthy, and following Him is the basis for a fulfilled life.
  • Loving God requires us to fully develop our minds, as intellectual growth and spiritual development are fully joined.
  • All truth is God’s truth and that studying the world around us allows us to grow in relationship with the Creator.
  • Loving God results in loving and serving others.
  • Living according to God’s truth gives the greatest opportunity to grow personally and to positively impact the world around them.

Beliefs matter. Our culture teaches us that beliefs are merely personal opinion, but this casual opinion ignores the fact that our beliefs determine our values and our view of the world, which in turn governs our choices. Biblically, belief is not a matter of opinion, but rather it is the logical conclusion that we draw from the evidence in front of us.
