Our School Philosophy

Weatherford Christian School was founded in 2001 on the belief that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  Man was created in God’s image with an inherent need to worship God as the Creator.  Man has a sinful nature, which separates him from God, therefore; God sent His son, Jesus Christ to redeem man through the blood he shed on the cross for those sins.  Jesus conquered death and lives today at the right hand of God.  The Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God and teaches man how he should live his life in relation to God’s creation.

 

WCS teaches from the perspective of a Biblical Christian worldview.  There are absolutes and there is an unchanging standard for right and wrong, which is the Word of God.  Truth is discovered, it is not decided, and all truth is subject to God’s Truth.

 

God created the husband and wife and told them to go forth, be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.  God’s design is for the husband and wife to create a family and raise their children to know and worship Him.  God expects them to educate their children preparing them to go into the world and live happy, productive Christian lives for all to see.

 

WCS believes that only when we have received a well-rounded education can we truly live an emotionally stable and happy life, in harmony with those around us.  A well-rounded education is more than just reading, writing and arithmetic; it includes the knowledge that we exist to serve God and reflect Him in our daily lives.  In light of today’s society, our children need support in three areas to mature into faithful, self-supporting and productive Christians:  a healthy home environment, an active church life, and a Christ-centered school.  This “three stranded cord” is difficult to break and will serve our children well throughout their lives.

 

WCS completes this “three stranded cord” by becoming an extension of both the family and the church.  WCS educates its students both academically and spiritually, in a safe Christ-centered learning environment.  WCS teaches its students to be self-disciplined and have a strong sense of responsibility for what goes on in their presence.  WCS promotes mental and emotional maturity of its children by teaching them how to serve both God and man within their community.  WCS will graduate confident children – children who possess the knowledge and skills desired by colleges and universities across America.  WCS will ultimately teach its children to please and honor God in whatever they do and wherever they go … for as long as they live.
