Spiritual Life

Welcome from Spiritual Life at VCS

Central to the Mission of Village Christian School is the call to consider, receive, trust, repent, and believe upon the Lord Jesus Christ, with a faith that follows Him for life. Thus, we seek to provide a refreshingly distinct education centered on Christ and His Word (Col. 3:17, 1 Cor. 10:31, 2 Tim. 3:16-17). The Spiritual Life Department explicitly deals with that which is eternalthe souls of our students, staff, and community overflowing to the whole of life. The Lord Jesus said that someone can gain the whole world, but if they lose their soul, it’s a worthless tragedy (Mark 8:36). So, with serious joy we have the privileged stewardship to bear witness to Jesus, the only savior from eternal death, hope for eternal life and giver of life more abundantly now (John 3:16, 10:10). While one’s spiritual life shows up in classes, programs, retreats, opportunities for service and mission, spiritual vitality pervades everything we do. We do not believe, nor do we ever want to teach that following Christ can be compartmentalized into a Sunday church service, a bible class, or even a mission project. Following Christ is for the whole of life, in every arena of life, and the most beautiful life we can exemplify as well as help our students to embrace themselves (Matt. 4:18-22, 1 Cor. 11:1). The Spiritual Life Department at VCS aims to provide consistent Christ-centered soul-care, devoted to God’s Word and prayer (Acts 2:42, Matt. 28:18-20, Col. 1:28-29).

We desire to be a school that biblically helps students and their families to love God and love others, overflowing from a vibrant faith in Jesus Christ (Matt. 22:36-40, Gal. 5:6, 1 Tim. 1:5). All of our gifted and loving teachers, administrators, and every employee at Village Christian School shares a passion for Christ and seeks to display the power of the gospel in their lives. Our prayer, as we serve students towards authentic discipleship, is five-fold:

  1. For the glory of Jesus Christ to be exalted (2 Cor. 4:6, John 1:14). Only when students know who Christ is, by faith, can they truly know/grow in who they are and be saved.
  2. For the power of the gospel to be at work in our service (Rom. 1:16). Only through the gospel can students discover their ultimate place of belonging within the family of God.
  3. For our school community to be emboldened to believe the Bible for life (Col. 3:16). Only God’s Word provides the true worldview and aligns our students with God’s kingdom purpose in the world along with His will for their lives (Psalm 1:1-2, John 17:17, Rom. 10:18, 2 Tim. 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:3).
  4. For our school community to have an eagerness towards prayer. Prayer is the chief expression of our dependence upon God for everything we aim to do in serving our students (Luke 18:1, Phil. 4:4-6, 1 Thess. 5:17).
  5. For love to be in the forefront of everything we do, motived by the love of Christ (Eph. 3:14-19). Love is the heart of all Christian service and we long to not only serve but love students as Christ has loved us (John 13:34-35, 1 Cor. 13:1-3, 2 Cor. 5:14-15).

Personally, I am tremendously grateful that God has called me to serve as the Spiritual Life Director in the ministry of Village Christian School. “We are ambassadors for Christ, God making His appeal through us” (2 Cor. 5:20). As the Spiritual Life Director, I have been entrusted with the task of representing Jesus’ appeal for people to be reconciled to God and have true life. I am just a redeemed pointer, Jesus is the point (Eph. 1:17-22, Col. 1:15-20). There’s no greater or more beautiful news than the gospel of Jesus Christ and it is my joy to participate in this gospel partnership for the good of VCS and the glory of God.

If you ever have any questions, concerns, comments, or prayer requests, please know that my door is always open, my email awaits, and my phone is always available for calls. This invitation is open to all students, parents, faculty, local ministry leaders and whoever else.

All glory to Christ,

Statement of Faith

We Believe…

…the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

…that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

…in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

…that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

…in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life and by whose infilling the believer is equipped for service.

…in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

…in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.
