Since 1982, we have helped Christian families in our community give their children a quality education in a godly environment. Our mission advances students’ intellectual development and spiritual growth. Spiritually, we purpose to train our students to know the Word of God and live according to the Word of God. Spiritual training prepares them for a life of personal worship and corporate service in their local churches. Educationally, we purpose to help students develop their intellect, to prepare them for college, and to instill in them a biblical worldview. Our academics are challenging, and our spiritual environment is nurturing.
Hilltop Christian School exists as a ministry of Hilltop Free Will Baptist Church for the purpose of providing academic excellence through a Biblical worldview with a desire to develop students who become complete in Christ, build critical thinking skills, and grow in Christ-like character; while providing a loving, safe, and nurturing atmosphere in a structured and educational environment.
Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the holy, inspired, infallible Word of God providing precise rules of faith and practice. We believe in one God, existing in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His sinless life, vicarious death, glorious resurrection, and imminent return. We believe salvation comes by faith alone and exists in the repentant heart, engendering faith, and unreserved committal of one’s self to Christ as Savior with purpose to love and obey His written Word and indwelling spirit upon regeneration.
Objectives and Philosophy
Hilltop Church and Hilltop Christian School hold that Christian education is a directive from God for the Christian family (Prov. 19:27; 22:2; Deut. 6:6-9; Col. 2:8). We believe in the growth process of the total person. We strive to promote the student’s spiritual, academic, social, and physical growth. Students should be grounded in biblical values, patriotism, citizenship, moral character, and superior academic knowledge. HCS adheres to these goals:
- To lead children to a personal knowledge of Christ as Savior
- To prepare children spiritually by instilling in them a love for the Lord Jesus Christ and a sense of responsibility to be all God wants them to be
- To prepare children to serve God effectively
- To encourage children to think clearly, logically, and independently
- To offer instructional programs that meet children’s academic needs
- To achieve mastery in the tools of learning and communication
