We believe students and every human being should/will ask questions.  We believe students should be educated in an environment where competing worldviews are able to be studied. We believe students should be exposed to a variety of answers about human existence.  We believe the Bible not only gives realistic answers for the questions of why evil and suffering exist, but also sufficient reasons for having real and lasting hope.  We believe that correct teaching about God, self, and others is the only way for people to begin having lives which are marked by truth, love, and happiness.  We believe this begins with God's revealed truth in the Bible and in the person of Jesus Christ.
