The Mission of WCCS

The mission of Westminster Catawba Christian School is simple yet powerful: to educate students to bless our world as disciples of Jesus Christ. Our mission statement is guided by nine fundamental statements of faith:

Statements of Faith

  • We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as inspired by God, inerrant in the original writings, and the supreme authority for faith and life.
  • We believe in one God existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, co-equal and eternal.
  • We believe that man was created by God and bears His image, that he sinned against God’s law and thereby incurred physical and spiritual death.
  • We believe that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are in need of the Savior Jesus Christ for God’s reconciliation with them.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is the one true God.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ died for the sins of His people, according to the Scriptures, as a voluntary representative and substitutionary sacrifice.
  • We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of Jesus Christ, in His ascension into Heaven, and His personal and visible return to this earth.
  • We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit; become children of God; are indwelt by the Holy Spirit; progressively become more Christ-like in thought, word, and action; and are eternally secure.
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of all persons, judgment to come, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
