Our students become successful life-long learners and leaders in a lifetime relationship with the Lord Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 2:11 & 12

A uniquely kingdom-centered experience

Bethel Christian School’s kingdom culture is unique in its vision to see heaven come to earth in the classroom. As a school that aligns with a radical belief in God’s goodness, we teach our students to become resilient disciples of Jesus.

Students learn to live in an authentic community with one another, becoming peacemakers and connectors in the classroom. Teachers cultivate a love for learning in their students, challenging them to persevere and stay curious both in and out of the classroom.

Hope that inspires world changers

BCS’s kingdom culture is infused with hope. A hope to see the world through God’s perspective, fueling both staff and students to make an impact in all spheres of society.

Whether through art, athletics, or cultural diversity, BCS students will be equipped to share Jesus’ love and leave a lasting legacy for the generations to come.

Academics that create a foundation for a lifetime of learning

World changers must be equipped with educational foundations that will enable them to lead in any sphere of society.

As an ACSI accredited school, we teach a Common-Core aligned curriculum from a biblical worldview and welcome the presence of Jesus into every part of the school day. We invite students to explore the world through the lens of hope in God’s plan for the redemption and restoration of all things.

Core Values

Commissioned to Make Disciples

God reveals Himself in the Bible as Creator and “the way, the truth and the life.” We honor Him as Lord and King. Therefore, all curriculum and instruction flows from the Biblical worldview that in Christ Jesus, God established His kingdom and commissioned His people to make disciples of all nations. We teach our students to preach the Gospel in word and action, knowing that signs and wonders follow those who believe. [Mark 16:15-18, 2 Cor. 5:11-20]

Friends with God

A student’s personal relationship with Christ is the core of all they can learn and accomplish.  We teach our students to receive and respond to God’s offer of an intimate relationship by loving Him in return with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength through communion with the Holy Spirit.  [Luke 2:52, Mark 12:30, 2 Cor. 13:14]

Sons and Daughters of God

Knowing and personally experiencing God’s transforming love, power, and truth is the deepest need and greatest joy of humanity. As our students grow in friendship with the Lord and learn to follow the Holy Spirit, they will perceive themselves as God perceives them and embrace their true identity as a child of the King. As they work FROM God’s acceptance rather than FOR it, holiness and Christ-like character will become more an internal motivation to position them to fulfill God’s call on their life and less a merely external expectation. [Galatians 4:7, Romans 8:14-17]

Successful Self-Directed Learners and Leaders

Our purpose is to nurture a love for learning in our students and to help them understand their learning styles and strengths, thereby equipping them with the skills to be successful, self-directed learners. Students with this self-understanding become excellent contributors and leaders in both church and society. They impart what they are to others – all for the glory of God. [Ephesians 2:10, Psalm 15]

Passionate Worshippers

Worship is fundamental to our relationship with God. It recognizes His worth and we become like the One whom we worship. We believe the arts find their true home in service to God, so our students learn to express worship through dance, music, choir, drama, painting, and drawing. [John 4:23]
