VALUES, EXPECTED STUDENT OUTCOMES, & BIBLICAL FOUNDATIONS

 

1. SERVANT LEADERSHIP

We believe each person at KICS should live in a way that models the servant leadership of Christ, choosing character before career, wisdom beyond scholarship, service above self, and a lifestyle of participation over apathy.

Expected Student Outcomes

  • Students can recognize the needs of others and respond appropriately.
  • Students can lead intentionally within their various roles at school, home, and the community.
  • Students can describe what it means to be a servant leader at their age.
  • Students can make choices that reflect a lifestyle of character, wisdom, service, and participation.

Biblical Foundation

  • Matthew 20:25-28 “Jesus called them (the disciples) together and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you.  Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be the first must be your slave – just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

 

2. CHRIST-CENTERED

We seek to live out a biblical worldview that embraces and articulates that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the only way to have eternal life for all who believe.

Expected Student Outcomes

  • Students can articulate what they believe in relation to Jesus Christ and how that impacts their worldview and choices in life.
  • Students can demonstrate biblical literacy by summarizing the major tenets of the gospel and the story of God’s relationship with all people from creation to the end of time as presented by the Bible.

Biblical Foundation

  • John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
  • Ephesians 1:18-22 “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.   And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

 

3. GLOBAL FAMILY

We value the diverse nature of our global community, respecting people from every country and culture, as image-bearers of God, coming from and being sent out to nations all over the world.

Expected Student Outcomes

  • Students can demonstrate respect toward one another as we are all created in the image of God.
  • Students can articulate their responsibilities as global citizens and their role in impacting the world for Christ among people of different countries and cultures.
  • Students can identify and respond to prejudice and bias in their own thinking, context, and world.

Biblical Foundation

  • Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”
  • Romans 10:12-13 “For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile – the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for 'Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.'"
  • Matthew 28:18-20 “All authority in heaven and on earth have been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you.  And I will be with you always, to the very end of the age.
