MISSION, VISION, & CORE VALUES
Warsaw Christian School trains the whole child in body, mind, and spirit to be prepared for life and eternity by providing a quality Christian education.
Warsaw Christian School students will acquire a Biblical worldview evident by faith in Jesus Christ, growth in Godly wisdom and character, a commitment to academic excellence, and a heart to serve their world for the glory of God.
The Infallible Word of God - We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21).
Partnership with Parents - Warsaw Christian School recognizes that parents are responsible before God for the instruction, training and discipline of their children. Warsaw Christian School seeks to assist each parent in meeting their responsibility in a rapidly changing world by providing curriculum, resources, and professional, godly instruction (Deuteronomy 6:6-7; Proverbs 22:6; Ephesians 6:4).
Partnership with the Local Church - Warsaw Christian School acknowledges that the local church is the instrument established by God for the completion of His program on earth. Warsaw Christian School, a ministry of Community Grace Brethren Church, seeks to work in cooperation with local churches (1 Corinthians 12:12; Ephesians 4:11-16).
Biblically Integrated Education - Education is a quest for truth that builds a personal worldview. Warsaw Christian School accepts the Biblical world view as correct and integrates the whole content and process of education with the Bible (John 14:6; Romans 12:1-2; Colossians 2:3).
The Salvation and Discipleship of Students - We value the role teachers have of introducing students to the Lord Jesus Christ and training them to love God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength and to walk in obedience to His Word (Luke 6:40; 2 Corinthians 3:3; 2 Timothy 3:14-15).
Christian Service – WCS is committed to developing a heart of servant-hood in all students. WCS encourages students to serve God with the gifts He has given them in order to impact their family, school, church, community, and the world.
Excellence - We expect our students and teachers to live up to their God-given potential and to be like Christ in character and behavior. WCS will strive to achieve educational excellence through creative and critical thinking using Biblical criteria for proper evaluation (Colossians 3:17 & 23).
Local and World Missions - WCS believes that local and world missions is commanded and should be supported by encouraging children to consider God’s call for them (Matthew 28:19-20).
The philosophy of ministry of Warsaw Christian School begins with the understanding that it is an integral part of the local church and must support the church in the fulfillment of its commission as given by Christ Himself.
The commission, found in Matthew 28:16-20, focuses on the person of Jesus Christ. The disciples who saw Christ worshiped Him. On the basis of His authority as God, He gave them, and through them us, the commission to go and make disciples who would do the same. Thus the goal is to bring each disciple to the place where he can genuinely worship the Savior.
Christ established through His commission to the church the method whereby this objective will be accomplished. First, a person must confess and forsake sin, acknowledge Christ as Lord, and begin a personal relationship with Him. Second, the believer’s desire for public identification with God throughout his life is reflected in obedience to baptism. The discipleship process focuses on more than just indoctrination. Christ commands His church to teach disciples a lifestyle of obedience based on what He has commanded. The source of that teaching is the inerrant Word of God centered on the Living Word, Jesus Christ. Third, the process of education in the Christian school must be in concert with the home, which is to teach children to love God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength. This principle is found in Deuteronomy 6:1-9; Psalm 78:1-8; Proverbs 22:6; Matthew 22:37,38; Mark 12:29,30; and Ephesians 6:4.
To teach a student any knowledge without consciously recognizing the source and purpose of life would be dishonest with the student. Therefore, the knowledge of Jesus Christ and the Bible becomes the key and coordinating principle of education, for He is the source of all truth. Only a Christ-centered education can have lasting meaning and can validly prepare youth for a life of worship and wholesome contentment.
