General School Mission

"Live Oak Classical School strives to equip students to love God with all their hearts, souls, and minds (Matt. 22:37). We
draw on the classical tools of learning to prepare students to reason clearly, communicate effectively, and act responsibly
in the world – all for the glory of God.
Live Oak Classical School Statement of Faith
Below is a statement of faith made by Live Oak Classical School as a set of beliefs which we feel is sufficient for members
of a school to hold in common. We are not a church and will not attempt to influence positions of doctrinal belief
beyond this scope. Should questions of doctrine arise beyond this scope, the student will be referred back to the parents
and the home church.
Our Faith Statement focuses on the basic tenets of historical Christianity.
We believe in God almighty, maker of heaven and earth. Therefore we approach all truth as edifying for those who
believe in God, and we strive to understand every aspect of the world as part of God's creation.
We believe God's creation – including human thought and culture – is good, yet fallen from its proper relation to God.
Therefore we approach the best of human culture as an expression of creation yearning to be reunited to God, and we
recognize that our own understanding of God and creation is limited.
We believe that God acted decisively in history through the person and work of Jesus Christ to reconcile the world unto
himself. Therefore the story of God's saving work in history is essential to our understanding of the world.
We believe God continues to work in history through his holy Spirit to restore the image of God in us. Therefore we
trust in God's indwelling presence to empower us to discern truth, excellence, and beauty, and to do justice, love mercy,
and walk humbly before God.
We believe holy Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in
In response to the goodness and grace of God made manifest in creation, Christ, and the holy Spirit, we develop our
minds and our hearts that we may be good stewards of God's creation and faithful bearers of Christ's image in love and
service to one another."
