What We Believe
Education Centered on the Gospel of Christ
North County Christian School is a distinctively Christian school open to students from across Christian denominations. As a Christian school, we align our curriculum, philosophy of education and all programming with our core Biblical beliefs. We currently have students representing over 80 different area churches. We value the denominational diversity of our students and we strive to build community upon the core principles of the Gospel, given to us in the Bible. These core beliefs and where we find them in Scripture can be found below.
NCCS is Founded on Biblical Principles
God is one eternally existent, infinite Triune God and has revealed himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1; Deuteronomy 6:4-5; Matthew 28:19-20)
Jesus is divine and was fully God and fully man at the same time. (Matthew 1:20-25; Matthew 16:19-20)
The Holy Spirit is active today, convicting the world of sin, giving new life to those who repent and believe, sanctifying believers, and guiding into all truth. (John 7:39; John 14:15-26; John 16:7-15)
The Bible was inherently inspired by God and reveals the will of God in all matters of faith and salvation. (Luke 24:44-47;2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:10-12)
Original sin, the corruption of man by Satan, continues to exist in a Christian's life until cleansed by the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 3; Romans 5:12-14; Romans 7:7-8; Galatians 5:16-25)
Salvation started in God's loving heart, and is grounded in Jesus' sufferings, shedding of blood, death on the cross, and resurrection. (Luke 24:46-48; John 3:14-17; Romans 3:21-26; Romans 4:17-25)
Man is morally responsible for his use of free will and God never takes his freedom of choice from him. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 2:1-16; Romans 3:10-12; Romans 5:6-14; Romans 6:15-16; Romans 7:14-25; Romans 10:6-8)
Repentance involves a sense of personal guilt and a voluntary turning away from sin. (Mark 1:14-15, Luke 3:1-14)
In salvation, God sees a person as if he had never sinned, is given a new life beginning, and is adopted into God's family. (John 1:12-13; John 3:3-8; Romans 3:21-26; Romans 4:5-19; Romans 8:1-17)
God gives a pure heart to those who are brought into complete devotion to God and that this work of God's grace is complete sanctification. (John 7:37-39; John 14:15-23; John 17:6-20; Romans 6:11-13; Romans 8:1-14; Romans 12:1-2)
Jesus will come to earth again and those who are His will go to live with Him eternally and those that do not belong to Him will spend eternity in Hell.
(Matthew 25:31-46; John 14:1-3; Revelation 1:7-8; Revelation 22:7-20)
Christian baptism is an outward sign of the acceptance of Jesus. (Matthew 3:1-7; Matthew 28:16-20)
Communion is a sacrament that declares Jesus' sacrificial death. (Matthew 26:26-29; Mark 14:22-25; Luke 22:17-20; John 6:28-58)
God can and does heal body, mind, and emotions, and allows providential agencies and persons to aid in the healing process. (Matthew 4:23-24; Matthew 9:18-35; John 4:46-54; James 5:13-16)
A person receives the fruit of the Spirit when he becomes a believer. The gifts of the Spirit are given by God's will alone and no gift is superior to any other and no gift is universally given to all believers. (Galatians 5:22-25; Romans 12:6-8; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31; Ephesians 4:11-12)
Learning through Community
Amidst our academic curriculum and course load, we give our students the opportunity to engage with each other and with God. Daily Bible classes and weekly chapel services provide opportunities for students to better understand God's purpose and design for their lives, helping students establish a firm Biblical foundation and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
In addition, our middle school and high school students participate in bi-weekly small groups to discuss what they have been learning in chapel, their Bible classes, and in life. These small groups, led by a member of our staff, allow our students to go deeper with each other and with the Lord.
