MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of Cypress Christian School is to honor the Lord Jesus Christ by providing students an education based upon academic excellence and biblical values.

STATEMENT OF FAITH AND DOCTRINE

We believe:

  1. That the Bible is God's inerrant Word in the original manuscripts and the only authority for doctrine and practice. (II Tim. 3:16).
  2. In the Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit as revealed in the Bible. (Matt. 28:19; II Cor. 13:14).
  3. That salvation from sin and judgment is a free gift, paid for by the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ for all who repent of their sin and place their faith in Him as their Savior. (John 3:16; Rom. 10:9).
  4. In John 14:6, which states: “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.’” 
  5. In the literal resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and in the same resurrection to eternal life for all who are saved, while the unsaved will spend eternity in hell. (John 11:25-26; Mark 16:6; Matt. 28:5-6; Luke 24:6-7; I Cor. 15:3-4, 35-58; Rom. 6:5; John 5:28-29; Matt. 25:41).
  6. In the literal return of Jesus Christ. (John 14:3; Acts 1:11; I Thess. 4:16-17). 
  7. That God, wonderfully, and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. (Gen. 1:26-27). Rejection of one’s biological sex as identified at birth is a rejection of God’s design for that person.
  8. That the term “marriage” has only one meaning in the original biblical context: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture (Gen. 2:18-25); that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other (1 Cor. 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb. 13:4); that sexual relations outside of this (e.g. adultery, fornication, homosexuality, bestiality)  are condemned as sinful and offensive to God (Ex. 22:19; Lev. 20:13; Rom. 1:26-27; I Cor. 6:9-10). 
  9. That human life is of inestimable worth and should be valued, defended and protected from conception through natural death.  (Ps. 139; Gen. 9:6; Rom. 13:4).

EMPLOYEE STUDENT ATTENDANCE

Employee tuition discounts may be available for employees with school-age children, depending on position. It is expected that employees will have school-age children enrolled at CCS unless there is a valid reason for other educational arrangements for the child, and such reasons must be presented to the Executive Director for evaluation prior to employment. This expectation does not guarantee space is available for all incoming employee children.

LIFESTYLE STATEMENT

Employees of Cypress Christian School will maintain a lifestyle based on biblical standards of conduct, including being a member in good standing of an evangelical church and leading a mature Christian life. It is the goal of CCS that each employee will have a lifestyle in alignment with the school’s statement of faith and doctrine and an example of how an individual can live out their Christian commitments in both their professional and personal capacities. Personnel will conduct themselves in a way that will avoid needless controversies and will not raise questions regarding their Christian testimonies. A Christian lifestyle should reflect the biblical perspective of integrity and of appropriate personal and family relationships, business conduct and moral behavior. An employee is expected to demonstrate a teachable spirit, an ability to share love for others, a willingness to live contentedly under authority and a commitment to follow the Matthew 18 principle when an issue arises with fellow employees or management.

Cypress Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, nationality or ethnic origin in the hiring of its employees or in the administration of its educational and admissions policies.  However, as a private religious educational organization, Cypress Christian School reserves the right to select employees on the basis of job qualifications, religious commitment, moral lifestyle choices and personal qualifications, including a willingness to cooperate with Cypress Christian School administration and to abide by its policies.
