Oklahoma Christian School’s mission is to partner with families in educating the whole person to glorify God.
Through a Christian education, students will have the spiritual and academic foundation to step boldly into a world as Christian leaders, rooted in biblical truth, secure in their identity in Christ, and equipped to make disciples.
OCS Core Values
The mission and vision of OCS are embodied in our core values
- Engaged in heart and mind – Loving God with a fully-engaged intellect and a tender, childlike heart.
“Jesus replied, ‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind’” (Mathew 22:37).
- Seek and apply Truth – Striving to know, understand, and abide in the Word of God, steadfastly defending the Gospel in a post-Christian culture, and applying truth to everyday life.
“But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves” (James 1:22).
- Dependent upon God – Living life with prayerful dependence upon the Holy Spirit, understanding that apart from Christ we can do nothing.
“Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me” (John 15:4).
- Effective Communicators – Equipped to convey ideas with clarity, listen to understand, and engage in respectful discourse.
“Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone” (Colossians 4:6).
- Discerning Thinkers – Trained to apply knowledge and wisdom to analyze, reflect, and creatively solve problems through the lens of a biblical worldview,
“See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ” (Colossians 2:8).
- Resilient Learners – Infused with enthusiasm and a vision for lifelong learning, embracing intellectual challenge, with a relentless desire to understand and grow.
“The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge, for the ears of the wise seek it out” (Proverbs 18:15).
- Humble – Approaching relationships, rooted in a biblical identity and free from selfish ambition, highly esteeming others, and yielding our rights for the sake of Christ.
“Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too” (Philippians 2:3-4).
- Kind – Engaging others with friendliness, compassion, encouragement, generosity, and consideration.
“Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you” (Ephesians 4:23).
- Servant Leaders – Focusing on the growth and well-being of the people and the communities to which we belong.
“But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves” (Luke 22:26).
- Disciplined – Practicing stewardship of body, mind, and God-given talents, recognizing and developing skills for a lifetime of healthy living.
“I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.” (1 Corinthians 9:27)
- Loyal – Unwavering commitment to a cause greater than yourself.
“Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart” (Proverbs 3:3).
- Selfless – Understanding the value of working together to achieve common goals and fostering a sense of unity and community where God has placed them.
“Incline my heart to your testimonies and not to selfish gain” (Psalm 119:36).
