Lincoln Christian School is a partnership between parents and Church On The Move. Scripturally, God has ordained only two institutions for the training of children. He ordained the home in Ephesians 6:1-4, and in Matthew 19:14; 28:20; John 21:15 He ordained the church. As such, the Christian school is a supplement not a replacement for the discipleship training of children by parents. The mission of Lincoln Christian School is to introduce families to the real Jesus and help them identify their next step!
Admission to LCS is access to a premier Christian educational and discipleship training experience! At Lincoln, we prepare LEADERS. We prepare leaders to thrive in the next generation by partnering with parents to teach and train kids through the active pursuit of godly character which helps them discover their identity in Christ, by providing high quality academic opportunities that contain age appropriate rigor, and areas to learn and understand the value of contribution through extracurricular activity!
This premier opportunity comes to life through an emphasis on an integrated child/parent educational and discipleship training experience by being a ministry of Church on the Move along with three major tenants that are the DNA of Lincoln Christian School.
A Biblical Worldview provides the framework from which we view reality through. Most directly, this is Matthew 22:36-40: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Kids are inundated with worldly information that actively seeks them daily! A knowledge and understanding of their identity in Christ combined with daily application of that identity provides a lens to appropriately view and contribute to a world that becomes increasingly gray and make decisions in a well-prepared manner consistent with scriptural teaching.
It’s often said that experience is the best teacher and most of the time, experience is best gained through relationship. At Lincoln, we take that as fact and embrace Relational Learning.
Relational Learning through collaboration and relationship with others grounded in fact-based content provides incredible opportunity for individual growth! Additionally, a relational learning atmosphere provides opportunities for kids to engage in and understand content and human connection in a visual, aural, tactile, and kinesthetic manner.
Pursuing the spirit of Excellence, with a biblical worldview, is always connected to God’s values and priorities. At Lincoln, we pursue excellence by emphasizing a healthy approach to the spirit of excellence in all that we do. This ensures our pursuit is motivated by the right values, priorities, and motives on an individual basis. That individual pursuit leads to collective excellence.
The pursuit of excellence is not to be confused with perfection, the quest for superiority, or even success. Pursuing excellence is individually and collectively being better tomorrow than today with the gifts and abilities God has blessed us with. This means we do common things in uncommon ways, seen or unseen, to fulfill our design and calling.
