General School Mission

Preschool/Pre-K Mission:
�?? To teach the Truth, through experiencing God�??s world in the light of God�??s Word.

Preschool/Pre-K Vision:
Every Preschool/Pre-K child will encounter excellent Christian Early Education instruction which intentionally integrates the Truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ into every aspect of intellectual, physical, social/emotional, and spiritual life.

Preschool/Pre-K Philosophy and Objectives:
The purpose of Lincoln Christian School Preschool/Pre-K is to honor God in Early Education.
�?? We believe children are a heritage of the Lord.
�?? We believe the school is supplementary to the home.
�?? We believe children are created in the image of God.
�?? We believe that creation and providence (the subject matter of instruction) are revelatory of God.
�?? We believe the purpose of Lincoln Christian School Preschool/Pre-K is to provide high quality Early Education in conformity with the faith and principles outlined in Article II of the bylaws of the Lincoln Christian School Association, in order that the children may prepare socially/emotionally, intellectually, physically and spiritually for their elementary education.
We believe that this purpose will be fulfilled in these ways:
�?? By presenting the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to children.
�?? By training children in the way that they should go.
�?? By aiding the church in helping the home train children.
�?? By encouraging/guiding the faith of children more deeply.
�?? By preparing children to daily live out their faith.
