Our Values

Our Vision

Our vision is to bring glory to the God of the Bible.

Our Mission

Oswego Community Christian School strives to provide our students with an academically excellent education while promoting the development of virtuous character from a biblical worldview.

Core Beliefs

The Bible is inspired and the only infallible authoritative Word of God.

 

There is one God, eternally existent in three (3) persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

 

We believe in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His resurrection from the dead, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal and imminent second coming.

 

All of us are purposefully and uniquely created by God to be an essential part of the body of Christ to bring glory to His name. Our growth and development of our gifts, and understanding of our purpose, is a lifelong pursuit.    Psalm 139:13-16

 

All of us are born hopelessly dead in our sins and are destined for hell for all eternity.  The time that we have in this life is our opportunity to accept as true the gospel of Jesus Christ and live eternally with Him in heaven.  To be saved we must confess that Jesus is Lord of all and believe that He died on the cross as a payment for our sins and was raised from the dead.   Romans 10:9-10

 

In all our pursuits, we should strive to demonstrate our love of God by serving Him.  Reading and obeying His word, cultivating a thriving prayer life, and worshiping Him with other Christians, all equip us to be better servants and bring glory to His name. We should “no longer live for ourselves, but for Him who died and rose again on our behalf.”  2 Corinthians 5:15

Spiritual Growth Opportunities

At OCCS, the spiritual growth of our students is one of our main priorities.  We strive to teach them biblical truths from the Bible, help them to memorize specific verses, and explore a deeper understanding of spiritual principles by answering thought-provoking questions.

Along with their Bible classes, we give them mentoring opportunities, service opportunities, and other avenues that bring a practical aspect to following Christ.  Our Pastor Appreciation event and our Grandparent’s Day event are good examples of how we attach spiritual importance to those adults in their lives that can share wisdom with them through a wealth of experience.

Woven throughout all of our communication, we stress the importance of working hard and cultivating an attitude of thankfulness.
