How do I know if BCS is the right place for our family?
First, consider our mission. Students being conformed to the image of Jesus Christ; His Life, His Mind, His Mission, and His Promises.
Bethel Christian School (BCS) strives for excellence in all aspects of spiritual, academic, social and personal development. The school ministry is designed to serve Christian parents who desire a Christian education for their children. It is an integral part of The Church and adheres to the church’s standards, beliefs, purposes and vision.
BCS will obey Scripture to educate children of Christian families by:
· Serving the church.
· Partnering with parents and their home church.
· Building students’ faith, character and skill.
· Being excellent stewards of the resources God provides.
· Glorifying God and passing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to generations.
As a covenantal Christian School, we were founded and continue to base our policies and practices on a Biblical Worldview. Admission to Bethel Christian School is based on several elements reflecting each family’s commitment to that worldview and related practices. If you are a Christian parent, attending and serving in a biblically based church regularly, have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and believe in the value of investing in a thorough education taught from a Biblical Worldview; we invite you to apply for admission.
Our governing board policy states that, “At least one parent/guardian must have a clear testimony of personal faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, is a member or regularly worshipping and serving in a local Christian church and is not participating in practices that would be considered illegal, or considered by King’s Christian Academy as immoral or inconsistent with a Christian Biblical Worldview.”
