Core Values

Christ Centered
We believe God is the foundation of all wisdom and knowledge. Through Christ we find merciful forgiveness and an invitation to a daily, personal walk empowered by the Holy Spirit.  We are led by Christ in our search for truth.
- I Corinthians 3:11, II Corinthians 5:17, Ephesians 3:17-20 -

Passionate Learners
We believe our faith is supported by knowledge.  As a learning community, we foster a journey of lifelong learning, encouraging one another to seek truth with fervor.  This spirit of academic excellence enriches our relationships, our world, and our faith in Jesus Christ.
- II Peter 1:5-8, 1 Corinthians. 14:15 -

Servant Leaders
We believe that servant leadership is reflected perfectly in the life and person of Jesus’ Christ.  We humbly defer self-interest to the interests of others, because love for others builds up God’s community. By following Christ’s example, we create a culture characterized by joyful service.
- Philippians 2:5-7, Matthew 20:26-28 -

Compassionate Peacemakers

As Christian peacemakers, we embrace “shalom” – the peace that God intends for humanity. We commit to the “peaceable kingdom” by practicing loving kindness, restoring justice, opposing racism, loving enemies, and advocating for the dispossessed. We renounce oppressive, violent destructive powers of this world –and are willing to live as examples of God’s peace.
- Matthew 5:9 -

Global Citizens
As responsible global citizens, we see, encourage and celebrate the image of God in others. We welcome and include the “stranger” in our midst -- respecting differences in worldviews while seeking common ground. We wish to transcend barriers between people through teaching, learning, and cross-cultural exchanges. We offer our lives in service to others.
- 2 Corinthians 5:18-20
