What We Believe

In addition to learning Bible stories and participating in weekly worship, students will experience love and grace given freely from their teachers and also practice treating other students with kindness.  During the years that your child is with us, we will teach and reinforce the following Biblical truths:

  1. God made the world and everything in it.

    • God made me in His image.  He made me special.  He made me just the way I am.​

    • God has a plan for me.

    • God Loves me.  He loves all people.

    • God sees me wherever I am.  God protects me day and night

    • God is powerful.  He can do anything.

  2. Jesus is God's son and our Savior.

    • Jesus was born on earth.  He came to live with us and show us God's love.​

    • Everyone sins and needs forgiveness.
