What if a school could really reflect the Kingdom of Heaven? Years ago we asked ourselves this question. It would be loving. It would be warm. It would represent diverse perspectives and backgrounds, different ethnicities and nationalities.
It would exude excellence and impart life.It would transform individuals and families, churches and neighborhoods. Its impact would reach not only its city but the entire world. Our goal is to continually strive to reach these goals every year, every day, and in every aspect of Tree of Life.

Vision Statement of Tree of Life Christian Schools
As students are led to spiritual, intellectual, social and physical maturity, they become disciples of Jesus Christ, walking in wisdom, obeying His Word and serving in His Kingdom.
Statement of Faith
The only divinely inspired and infallible Word of God, our final authority in all matters of faith, conduct, and truth (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21).
The One True God
Existing eternally as three persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Luke 3:22; Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14).
The Lord Jesus Christ
His pre-existence and deity (John 1:1-3), incarnate by virgin birth (John 1:14; Matthew 1:18-23), sinless life (Hebrews 4:15), substitutionary death (II Corinthians 5:21), bodily resurrection (Luke 24:36-43), ascension into heaven and present ministry (Hebrews 4: 14-16), and coming again (Acts 1:11).
The Holy Spirit
His personality (John 16:7-15) and deity (Acts 5:34), and His work in each believer (Romans 8:9), and filling (Ephesians 5:18) to empower for Christian life and service (Ephesians 3:16, Acts 1:8, Galatians 5:22-23).
His creation in the image of God (Genesis 1:26-28), as
male and female, determined biologically at conception, but man sinned and all are sinners (Romans 3:23), in need of salvation (John 3:3-5).
We are saved by grace of God, received as the gift of God through personal faith in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9), we come repenting of our sins, confessing Him as Lord before men, and receiving baptism into Him (Matthew 16:16; Acts 2:38; Acts 8; Acts 16; Romans 10:10).
The Church is the body and bride of Christ (Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:25-32), composed of all believers (I Corinthians 12:12-13), growing together in fellowship and ministry (Ephesians 4:11-16, Acts 2).
A lifestyle that strives for righteousness, good works and separation unto God from the evil ways of the world (Romans 12:1-2), manifested by speaking the truth (James 5:12), maintaining the sanctity of the home (Ephesians 5:22, 6:4), settling differences between Christians in accordance with the Word of God (I Corinthians 6:1-8), exhibiting the fruit of the spirit (Galatians 5:22-23), and maintaining a life of prayer (Ephesians 6:18; Philippians 4:6).
The Christian should observe the ordinances of our Lord, which are 1) baptism of believers by immersion (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-6) and 2) the Lord’s Supper (I Corinthians 11:20-34; Acts 2:42; Acts 20:7).
His existence and personality as the great adversary of God and His people (Revelation 12: 1-10), his judgment (John 12:3 1), and final doom (Revelation 20:10).
The conscious existence of the dead (Philippians 1:21-23; Luke 16:19-31), the resurrection of the body (John 5:28-29), the judgment and reward of believers (Romans 14:10-12; II Corinthians 5:10), the judgment and condemnation of unbelievers (Revelation 20:11-15), the eternal life of the saved (John 3:16), and the eternal punishment of the lost (Matthew 25:46; Revelation 20:15).
