Founding Principles

Lincoln Christian School was founded by Pastor Willie George and opened in august of 1997. Pastor George established the school with the following 4 main principles:

We are a discipleship school, not an outreach or mission school.

  • Our mission is to introduce families to the real Jesus and help them identify their next step.
  • We are committed to helping students develop a faith of their own amidst social and cultural pressure.
  • We develop our students spiritually through relational discipleship as we build relationships, pray for them, and identify next steps on the Know, Grow, Discover, Go discipleship path.
  • We call out gifts in our students and give them opportunities to discover, develop, and deploy their gifts in our school and church.

We partner with like-minded parents.

  • We are not a school for everyone!
  • We are committed to a vibrant partnership with parents by providing them with resources, support, and community to aid the growth and development of their children.

The discipline of self-denial is a core part of education.

  • Discipline introduces us to the foundational principle of following Christ: "If any of you wants to be My follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross, and follow Me." (Matthew 16:24 NLT)
  • We finish what we start! We don't bail when the going gets tough.

The body of Christ is about team.

  • What we're a part of is greater than the part I play. We need each other!
  • By being on a team, we discover what it means to serve. "God has given each of you a gift from His great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another." (1 Peter 4:10 NLT)
  • Shared experience and teamwork create a lasting brotherhood.
