“He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
He is also the head of the body, the church and
He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead,
so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything.”

~ Colossians 1:17-18

Philosophy

Life Way Christian School is a ministry of First Baptist Church, Centerton. As such, it adheres to the doctrinal statement of FBC, Centerton. (See “The Baptist Faith and Message”, 2000 edition.) All faculty, staff and administrative personnel must be born again Christians who are actively involved in a local, Bible believing, evangelical church. Because of their responsibility to consistently model godly character and life style before our students, all staff members are expected to give evidence of a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

Life Way Christian School recognizes that the primary responsibility for educating children rests with parents (Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Psalm 78:1-8; Proverbs 22:6; Ephesians 6:4); therefore, LWCS is committed to entering into a partnership with the church and the Christian family to support parents as they develop a God-centered worldview in their children.

Life Way Christian School is committed to providing excellence in academics. Based on the understanding that God is the author of all truth (John 8:31-32; John 14:6), every aspect of what is done at LWCS, academics, athletics, fine arts, etc., is based on the truth of God’s Word and is biblically integrated.

Life Way Christian School is committed to developing young men and women who understand and live lives that are based on a biblical worldview, who think and act Christianly, and who are academically, spiritually, socially and athletically prepared to serve the Lord in whatever capacity to which He calls them.
