The Paradox of Christ’s Call to Greatness

Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave — just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Matthew 20:25-28

Our Promise to You

Our schools provide 90% tuition assistance for our students — all of our students. This is the core of our promise to provide quality Christian education for K-12 students.

Loving by Serving (LBS) intends to open the doors of Christian education to all children and youth who want to experience the quality, warmth, faith, hope, love, and rigor it entails. Although our foundation and our school are new, they have been in our hearts and minds, and on our drawing board for quite some time now. Years of planning and research demonstrated the need for affordable Christian schools and led us to believe that many families would love to provide their children with this kind of education.

Receiving our nonprofit status in February of 2019, LBS has steadily and successfully worked towards our goal of funding Christian education. Cicindelae (DBA OrangeShine) donated 90% of its stock shares to LBS in March of 2021. This generous major gift, along with the commitments of our private donors, ensures our ongoing financial sustainability.

Families want their children to have the best opportunities. A quality educational experience is one of the most important tools for achieving life goals. Families can rely on our promise to make Christian education affordable, today and in the future.

Loving by Serving is a Christian non-profit organization holding a mission of serving all children by establishing Christian schools throughout the world. LBS provides quality Christian education and services with various school programs, considering students’ backgrounds and circumstances.

Supporting Learning for All Students

Statement of Faith

Loving by Serving (LBS) is an evangelical nondenominational community of faith committed to the highest standards of Christian education. We believe it is only through the integration of faith into the classroom students are given the best opportunity to thrive.

We believe the Scriptures—inspired by God and completely trustworthy —are our ultimate authority in all matters of faith and conduct (1 Timothy 3:16-17) and, therefore, form the foundation of our educational model.

We believe that Christian community and fellowship are necessary components of Christian education (Galatians 6:2), and we strive to incorporate communal prayer and mentorship into our school for the health of each student (James 5:16, Matthew 28:19-20, respectively).

We believe that all people are sinners by nature and by choice, and are therefore under condemnation of God; however, Christ died for our sins and was raised to life for our justification. When a person turns from their sins in repentance and trusts in Christ’s work on the cross, God forgives them and inputs His righteousness to them. Repentance is not a work, but a sign of saving faith through grace alone, and something that will continue throughout the Christian’s life. (John 3:16-19, 5:24; Romans 3:23, 4:25, 5:8-9; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5).
