Mission and Vision
At CFS, our mission is to provide quality Christian education in a community of grace where students are known and loved. We want our students to receive the very best in academic instruction with Biblical integration and with a Biblical worldview. We recognize acceptance by God is not based on our works, so although we hold excellence as a high value, we also want students to know they are loved and accepted for who they are and not for how they perform. Rules, procedures, and processes must be enforced in every school, however, a grace-filled environment gives students freedom to grow, to ask hard questions, to make mistakes, and to feel emotionally secure. Teachers and staff are intentional in getting to know students, so they are not “lost in a crowd”, but are recognized and encouraged to develop the gifts and talents God has given them.
Although we expect most of our graduates will attend college, graduation from college is not the ultimate or primary measure of fulfilling our mission. We desire our graduates to become confident, emotionally healthy, and spiritually strong adults who have healthy families, are active members in their local church, and are honoring God with their lives. We believe many of them are called to be leaders in their communities, as well as their churches, affecting the world for Christ.
The vision of Christian Fellowship School is to raise up multiple generations of Godly young people who love the Lord with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength; who serve the Lord in both their vocational calling and in the local church; and who worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. It is a pretty lofty vision. But, if you ask Christian parents what their greatest desire is for their children, they will likely say that they want their children to walk closely with the Lord throughout their lives and to spend eternity with Him and with them in heaven. Of course, they want their children to have success and happiness in this life, but they know that preparing children only for this world, and not for eternity, would be a grave and terrible disservice.
