Richmond Christian School is committed to clearly present the gospel of Jesus
Christ to each student, to approach each subject and activity from a Biblical
perspective, to offer an excellent academic program, to help each student
develop a world view that is consistent with the Christian faith, and to make
ambassadors for Jesus Christ (Colossians 3:17,
II Peter 1:5).
Richmond Christian School functions in a complementary role with the Christian
home to provide opportunities to build disciples by nurturing each student’s
mind, body and soul.
Believing that discipline is a process by which students are guided to develop
Christ-like characteristics. Discipline is not confined to mere external
control, but each student is encouraged and guided to become internally governed
through example and precept. “…being transformed into His likeness with
ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” (I Corinthians 3:18b) Biblically-modeled goals of discipline for discipleship
help our students understand how the impact of their actions have negative and
positive consequences upon others and themselves. Outward actions and hidden
motives behind moral choices and decisions are carefully examined in light of
Scripture. We discuss how to strengthen our walk with Christ by steps of
confession, repentance, forgiveness, and restoration. As we respond to the call
of discipleship, we must ask, “Where will it lead us?” Discipleship means
choosing to do the right thing because it brings honor to the Lord.
Discipline is a way to be rescued from satan gaining a strong hold on a
believer. The goal is to become a mature believer who recognizes the temptation
to do wrong and how to avoid the wrong doing in the future. The student will
discuss with their Division Principal how to repent form their sinful actions,
restore their relationship with God, the teacher, and possibly classmates and
how to continue to be under God’s protection and provision.
