Spiritual Life

We, at RCS, believe that biblical truths shape and determine the manner in which we behave and the choices we make. Students open their day with prayer, have an exciting Bible class daily, and enjoy weekly chapels. Students are encouraged and expected to treat others with kindness and to be honest. All faculty and staff are professed Christians and we strive to provide a safe environment that prepares students to live responsibly with their faith in Jesus Christ, themselves, and others.

Statement of Faith
RCS is an independent, non-denominational Christian school. Church doctrine is not taught; however, the truths of the Scriptures are intertwined throughout our curriculum. Our Statement of Faith is included as part of the student application and the parent signature indicates agreement with our philosophy.
We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as wholly inspired by God, inerrant in the original writings, and the final authority in faith and life.
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity and humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His Virgin birth and sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His future personal and bodily return in power and glory.
We believe that for salvation of the lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are regenerated by the Holy Spirit and thereby become the children of God.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost, for those that are saved it is a resurrection into everlasting joy with Christ, and for those that are lost it is a resurrection into everlasting suffering.
We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned, and thereby incurred both physical death and spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and indeed sin in thought, word and deed.
We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Vision
The ongoing vision of RCS is to produce students with not only high academic achievements, but also with strong moral values and character.

Spiritual Emphasis Week
Each year a gifted speaker is selected to minister for a week to the students and staff. Often this is the students’ favorite week of the year, the participants are challenged with a relative, biblical truth.

See You at the Pole
Since its inception, RCS students have organized and conducted this national prayer service. Dynamic leaders demonstrate their committed lives as they publicly pray for each other, their community, and the world.

Chapel
Weekly chapel is an exciting, upbeat time when students are challenged and encouraged in their Christian walk. Quality speakers from both local and national ministries come to share with the students. This is a time when students sing about their faith and when unity and focus are strengthened. Students are challenged to have a close and intimate walk with God. They are challenged to reach out and demonstrate Christ’s love not only to each other, but also to the community.
