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 that 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 and 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).
