At Mission Viejo Christian School, our core beliefs are firmly grounded in the foundational truths of the Bible. We foster a compassionate and supportive environment where the Bible is the foundation for developing our students' success. 


Our mission, in partnership with parents, is to nurture Christ-like character and academic excellence, empowering students to fulfill God's plan for their lives.


Every student equipped to influence the world for Jesus Christ.

Philosophy of EducationOur philosophy of education is firmly grounded in the Scriptures. In pursuing academic excellence, we recognize the vital role of partnering with parents, focusing on the holistic growth of every child, and the significance of a God-honoring Christian faculty and staff that illuminate the love of Jesus Christ.

Biblical Worldview
We believe that the development of a biblical worldview – how one views reality – is the primary goal of a Christian Education. The Bible serves as the foundation, providing the principles of truth, from which the learner can apply reason to every subject and area of life.  Understanding and wisdom are derived from the knowledge and application of God’s Word. Proverbs 1:7, 9:10; Colossians 1:9-10, 2:8; 2 Timothy 3:16; Romans 12:2

Parents Are Primary
We believe that parents have the primary responsibility to educate their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. The authority of the school is an extension of the authority of the parents.  Therefore, the school must work in partnership with the home to instill the values of Christ, just as a mother and father must work in agreement to train up the child. Deuteronomy 4:9; 6:7-9; Proverbs 22:6; Ephesians 6:1-4

Whole Child
We believe that Christian education serves to recognize the uniqueness of every child as made in God’s image. Each child consists of four distinct parts – spirit, mind, and body, as well as social.  Each is part of an integrated whole and cannot be dismissed or separated in the learning process. Matthew 22:37-40; Luke 2:52; Psalm; 139:13-16

Academic Excellence
We believe that academic excellence is an expression of worship of Almighty God as Creator and Lord. The dominion mandate is given to man to subdue (understand) the earth and all that is in it.  All truth is God’s truth and there is no dimension, nor subject that is apart from Him. Genesis1:26-31; Psalm 111:2; John 8:32; 2 Peter 1:3

Christian Faculty & Staff
We believe that those who would seek to disciple young people must themselves be disciples of Jesus Christ.  Each relationship in the Christian school where faculty and staff are concerned serve to model a life worthy of emulation. Because the student will resemble his or her teacher, only an authentic witness will serve to transmit a biblical worldview with credibility. Luke 6:40; 1 Corinthians 11:1; Hebrews 13:7; Romans10:14-17

Balanced Education
We believe that to maximize the potential of learners, a broad and balanced variety of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities must exist to enable students to achieve their God-given talents and abilities. A balanced education recognizes that students will enter all aspects of society and have a sphere of influence. Matthew 25:14-30; Romans 12:3-8; 1 Peter 4:10-11; 2 Corinthians 10:13-16

Socially Relevant
We believe that Christian education should prepare students to live in the world, even while they are “not of the world.” In this way, they will serve as ambassadors of reconciliation.  To this end, Christian schools are cognizant of all governing laws and authorities and work within the framework of educational standards.  Christian school graduates should be the best, not the least because they seek to glorify God in all things. John 17; Romans 13:1-7; 1 Corinthians 10:31-32; 1 Corinthians 11

What We Believe

We believe there is one God who exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
This God is the creator of all things.

We believe the Bible to be God's written revelation of Himself to man, the inspired and infallible Word of God, and the supreme and final authority for all matters of life.

We believe that God created mankind in His own image to have a relationship with Him, but man has separated himself from God by sin and is lost.

We believe in Jesus Christ, God's one and only Son, fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.

We believe Jesus Christ died on a cross, was buried, and rose again in bodily form on the third day.

We believe Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven and now sits at the right hand of God the Father.

We believe Jesus Christ will return to the earth to judge both the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is an active and operative part of the triune God.

We believe the Bible teaches that salvation and the forgiveness of sins are achieved only by grace through the blood of Christ.

We believe that the term marriage has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. We believe God's command is that there be no sexual intimacy outside of or apart from marriage between a man and a woman.

We believe God wonderfully foreordained and immutably created each person as either male or female in conformity with their biological sex. Together, these two distinct yet complementary genders reflect God's image and nature.

We believe every believer is called to serve the Lord faithfully all the days of their life.
