Culture & Community
We are firmly committed to our institutional mission, which identifies itself as a Christ-centered community focused on academic excellence, partnerships with home & church, and servant-leadership development.
As a Christian community, Fellowship Christian School distinguishes itself by its covenantal commitments with participating families and staff members and by its dedication to fostering those ideals and standards that are consistent with a biblical worldview.
The desire to be a God-honoring community requires mutual understanding, and neither the difficulty of the task nor the imperfection of the end result should deter us from establishing reasonable expectations of community participants.
Diversity is God’s idea. God’s Word directly addresses diversity among His creation and describes heaven as a gathering of His children from “every nation, tribe, and tongue” (Revelation 7:9). God also created men and women in His image. Scripture shows that every race, nation, and ethnicity will be included in His Kingdom for those who have responded to God’s invitation to receive Jesus Christ as personal Savior.
We believe that it is unquestionably God’s plan and God-honoring for FCS’ ethnic and racial makeup to, as much as possible, reflect our surrounding community and, more importantly, God’s creation. As such, we are committed to leading the school on an intentional path toward more diversity in a mission-appropriate, God-honoring way.
"After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. (Revelations 7:9)"
Truth: Rooted in God’s word and HIS character.
Diversity: Unique reflections of our Creator seen across racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic lines.
Inclusivity: Acting on the belief that people have value because they are image-bearers while respecting biblical truth.
Acceptance: Willingly receiving (person & their story) as valuable.
Approval: Believing that a person’s actions or lifestyle are aligned with a biblical worldview.
Tolerance: Willingness to coexist with something or someone with whom you disagree.
Equality: All humans, united in origin, have the same ultimate value because everyone is created as a reflection of the divine image of God.
Equity: Providing equal opportunities for people to be successful- NOT equal outcomes.
