Mission

The mission of Dominion Christian School is to kindle the love of learning in our children so that they desire and achieve a thorough knowledge of God and His creation in all its forms.

Philosophy

Believing that all things were created by God and reality is most fully understood within the context of His creative and redemptive purposes, we affirm that God is the author of all truth, not just “religious” truth. All creation is continually sustained by the Word of His power and reflects His goodness and order.

Believing the Holy Scripture to be the only inerrant, authoritative Word of God, we affirm that students learn best in an environment acknowledging and submitting to, rather than suppressing, the authority of God and His Word in every area of life and study.

Believing that the Scriptures command us to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind, and not to “conform” to the [thinking] pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of our minds, we affirm that students must be taught to think carefully and analytically for God’s glory.

Believing that our primary goal is to provide students with both a Biblical worldview and the intellectual tools necessary to assimilate experiences of reality into that worldview, we affirm that our educational pedagogy must enable students to make sense of the world in which they live and equip them to discover the gifts God has given and to fulfill God’s purpose for their lives.

Believing that Scripture teaches in Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and Ephesians 6:1-4 that parents are responsible for the education of their children, we affirm that we are delegated authority by the parents, to assist them in the education of their children. We may not usurp the parents’ God given parental duty and responsibility, and parents are encouraged to participate in their child’s education at the school.

Core Values

Dominion Christian School will impart TRUTH in the minds of today’s young people, cultivating KNOWLEDGE of their Creator, the fountainhead of all WISDOM.

Statement of Beliefs

We believe that the Bible is the only authoritative, inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God, and that the Scriptures are our final rule in all matters of faith and practice.

We believe that there is but one, infinite, personal, perfect and good God, eternally existent in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, each of whom is fully God. God’s existence and character are determined by Himself alone and are not dependent on anyone or anything else.

We believe that God created man, male and female, in His image and for His own glory. Man’s purpose in life is to bring glory to God by enjoying Him forever. Adam, the first man, sinned in his disobedience toward God thereby breaking fellowship with God, and through such disobedience sin extended to all mankind. We are all born sinners, spiritually dead and relationally separated from God.

We believe that Jesus Christ, born of the Virgin Mary, perfect Man and truly God, came to earth to fulfill the divine law through perfect obedience. Having lived a sinless life in obedience to the Father, He gave His life on the cross as the perfect, complete sacrifice for sin. On the third day, God raised Him from the dead, after He had provided a full redemption for all those who, by God’s grace through faith alone, turn from their sins and believe in the name of Jesus Christ. We believe God will regenerate all for whom Christ died through the invincible power of the Holy Spirit. Christ will one day return to judge the world and deliver His faithful. A persevering personal faith in Christ, which is the gift of God, is the way to eternal salvation for all mankind.

We believe that the Father has given Christ all authority in heaven and earth; that He is Sovereign Lord of all creation and every area of life, not just “religious” or “spiritual” life; that as Christians we are commanded to love Him with all our minds as well as our heart and soul; that we love Him with all our minds by: 1) refusing to conform to the unbelieving thinking patterns of the world, and 2) renewing our minds and transforming our thinking patterns to take every thought captive to Christ
