Foundational Statements


Trinity Christian School exists to educate students to the glory of God by pursuing excellence for mind and heart.


By God’s grace, through his word and Spirit, Trinity seeks to transform students by the renewing of their minds after the image of him who created them. We desire to bring into conscious subjection to God what has been redeemed in and through Christ.


Impart Truth

Truth is the word of God, written and Incarnate.

Instill Character

Character is the Christ-like courage to live the truth of God’s word uncompromisingly in a compromising age.

Inspire Service

Service is the imitation of Christ, who came not to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.

School Verse

For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.

— 2 Corinthians 4:6


The purpose of education is to know God, to think his thoughts after him, and to make his glory known. It is to this end that we were created and redeemed (Isaiah 43:7; 1 Peter 2:9). At Trinity we seek the transformation of our students by the renewing of their minds after the image of him who created them (Ephesians 4:23-24; Colossians 3:10). We desire to bring into conscious subjection to God what has been redeemed in and through Christ, thus pursuing excellence for mind and heart.

School Hymn

"May the Mind of Christ, My Savior"

May the mind of Christ, my Savior, live in me from day to day,
By His love and power controlling all I do and say.

May the Word of God dwell richly in my heart from hour to hour,
So that all may see I triumph only through His power.

May the peace of God, my Father, rule my life in everything,
That I may be calm to comfort sick and sorrowing.

May the love of Jesus fill me as the waters fill the sea;
Him exalting, self abasing: this is victory.

May I run the race before me, strong and brave to face the foe,
Looking only unto Jesus as I onward go.

May His beauty rest upon me as I seek the lost to win,
And may they forget the channel, seeing only Him.

(Tune: St. Leonards)
