Academic Excellence ~ Biblical Worldview ~ Christian Character
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Thy hands have made me and fashioned me:
give me understanding, that I may learn Thy commandments.
Thy word have I hid in mine heart,
that I might not sin against Thee.
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart,
be acceptable in Thy sight,
O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
A. We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16)
B. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent, in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)
C. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, 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. (John 14:2-6)
D. We believe and teach that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by His grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins. This simple act of faith is the initial step in the Christian life and the foundation for Christian education. (Romans 6:23)
E. We believe in the continuing ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. Growth as a Christian takes place as the Holy Spirit makes us conscious of the Biblical demands for a holy life, which fulfills God’s expectation of us as His children. (I Peter 2:2)
F. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost. Those who are saved unto life and those who are lost unto damnation. (Revelation 20:12-15)
G. We believe in the Genesis account of Creation. (Genesis 1:1)
WHO WE ARE
Chapel Hill Christian School is a ministry of Hope Baptist Church in Indianapolis, Indiana. We provide a quality Christian education administered by qualified Christian teachers who believe each child is a gift from God. Our mission is to inspire students to love and serve the Lord and others, pursue Godly character, and strive for academic excellence.
MISSION AND PURPOSE
It is the mission and purpose of Chapel Hill Christian School (CHCS) to teach that the Lord Jesus Christ is to be preeminent in all of life, including education. This comprehensive principle underlies every aspect of academic study, each activity, and all of school life. The Bible is specific in stating about Christ,
“For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven and that are in earth…and He is before all things, and by Him all things consist…that in all things He might have the preeminence,” Colossians 1:16-18.
“For of Him and through Him, and to Him are all things: to whom be the glory forever, Amen,” Romans 11:36.
“All things were made by Him and without Him was nothing made that was made,”
The selection of the restrictions mentioned in the Philosophy Statement may appear arbitrary to some; but while not condemning to others who see differently, CHCS believes that the restrictions named are outstanding types of conduct, which are detrimental to the standards of our objectives. THEREFORE, STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO ABIDE BY THESE STANDARDS THROUGHOUT THEIR ENROLLMENT AT CHCS. In order to avoid the confusion of the double-minded man (James 1:8), CHCS reserves the right to dismiss students who cannot or will not cooperate with this positionor whose parents cannot or will not cooperate with us.
