The foundation of our school is the Bible, the infallible Word of God. On this basis we affirm the following scriptural principles as guidelines for instruction:
Creation: The universe and all things created by God in the beginning were made good and perfect as we read in Genesis 1:31, “And God saw everything He made, and behold it was very good.”
Humanity: Humanity was created by God in His own image to enjoy fellowship with the Creator. Furthermore, people, blessed with special gifts far above any other living creature, received God’s command to care for and have dominion over all things in order to bring honor and glory to His name. (Genesis 1:26-27, l Cor. 10:31).
Sin: In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve yielded to temptation and willfully disobeyed God. As a result, we are all sinful and our sin separates us from God, those around us, and the world. Our view of the true meaning and purpose of life is also distorted because of sin.
The Trinity: We believe that there is one God, existing in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
God the Father: God, through His Holy Word and the world he created, reveals Himself to us. This revelation renews our understanding of God and ourselves in relation to God and others.
Jesus Christ: Jesus Christ, the Son of God who became man, suffered for our sin by His death on the cross so that through Him, humanity and creation are redeemed and reconciled to God. There is no other way of reconciliation with God than through Jesus Christ. (John 3:16).
Holy Spirit: Through the work of the Holy Spirit we are given the gift of faith and are brought to a knowledge of salvation and receive God’s free gift of grace.
Marriage and Christian Lifestyle: The Bible lays out standards for Christian life and living by those norms is critical to the operation of a Christian school community. We believe that God created man and woman as separate, individual genders endowed with unique characteristics, roles and responsibilities. We believe that God ordained sexuality and marriage as a union between one man and one woman, and that lifestyle behaviors within genders or between genders that are not consistent with that creation order are incompatible with the values of the BCS community.
Christian Education: Children from Christian homes should be brought up with the knowledge of Christ. Believing parents have the God-given responsibility to teach their children the Word of God. Brookfield Christian School assists the parents in this responsibility by helping to prepare their children to serve God in all areas of life.
In Faith We Began. In Faith We Go Forward.
