THE PURPOSE & PHILOSOPHY

OF SOUTH HAVEN CHRISTIAN SCHOOL

PURPOSE

The primary objective and purpose of South Haven Christian School is to train the student in the knowledge of God and the Christian way of life and to give the student an excellent education.  The teachers of SHCS realize the solemn responsibility before God to mold the life and character of each student by giving a good foundation for each child's future.  The well-qualified administration and faculty demonstrate a caring concern for each child under their care.

STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe in the divine inspiration and authority of the Scriptures, the triune God, the virgin birth and bodily resurrection of Christ, the fallen nature of man and his just condemnation, salvation by grace through faith, the free gift of God, the necessity of repentance and faith for salvation.  We believe in the visible and personal return of Jesus Christ, the resurrection of the righteous to eternal life and the wicked to eternal damnation.  SHCS believes in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Bible.  Only the King James Version is used in the pulpit, for classroom instruction, and Bible memorization.

MISSION

Our mission is to provide a Haven (Psalm 107:30) where the home, church, and school can partner with Christ to enable students to become "complete in Him." (Colossians 2:10)  This is accomplished as we touch their heart - evangelize (Mark 15:15), teach their mind - edify (Colossians 2:7), and train their body - equip (Ephesians 4:11-12).
