Southwest Christian High School exists to develop mature disciples of Jesus Christ who Seek, Know, Live, and Proclaim the Truth and glorify God through academic, artistic, and athletic excellence.
Southwest strives to accomplish this vision by encouraging and equipping our students to:
SEEK the Truth
Southwest Christian believes that Absolute Truth exists and is revealed through creation, Scripture, and the person of Christ. SWCHS encourages its students in each subject area to seek God's Truth while honestly assessing all truth claims, even those in opposition to the Biblical Worldview. Our goal is to see our graduates leave our school with an understanding of the false truth claims impacting those around them and a hunger for a deeper understand of God's Truth.
KNOW the Truth
Southwest Christian believes that God has not only revealed Truth but also made it knowable. Southwest approaches the discovery of these revealed Truths with humility, recognizing that we are finite and impacted by sin in our attempts to gain knowledge. However, we believe and encourage our students to believe that knowledge is, in fact, possible and True knowledge is rooted in the revelation of God.
LIVE the Truth
Southwest Christian believes that God is Good, that morality comes from his His Goodness, and that humanity has the opportunity and responsibility to conform to God's Goodness for His Glory. In response to this, we encourage students to be set-apart for Christ and to follow Him in their thinking and actions. We encourage our students to compassionately engage culture but not to conform to it, to be obedient to God and not merely to list to Him, and to strive to be instruments of God's redemption for a lost world.
PROCLAIM the Truth
Southwest Christian believes that God desires all men to know the Truth. Southwest strives to help students see that they are image-bearers of God and that He has called us to make disciples and to spread the Truth we have sought and known. Southwest also strives to assist students in finding their unique giftings, so they might proclaim God's Truth in their calling and the spheres of influence to which that calling brings them. It is our hope that this influence will spring from a life that seeks, knows, and authentically lives the Truth.
