Our Christian Identity
At Bear Creek, we believe it is not enough to train a student's mind without devoting instruction to character and spiritual development. Here, students gain a deep knowledge of Scripture and learn how to apply biblical principles in their lives. We believe that God's character is revealed not only in His Word, but also in every facet of Creation; therefore, we teach that all knowledge is interrelated and can instruct us about God Himself.
That integration is the promise of high-quality Christian education. Done right, it instills within students knowledge, skills, and a Christian perspective from which to solve problems by placing them in a larger context—by giving them a bigger narrative. It prepares students to wisely and biblically discern, “so what and now what?” In the end, Christian education is about integration and not fragmentation. It teaches both knowledge and biblical wisdom, so students are prepared to make wise and creative decisions as they engage tomorrow.
While distinctly Christian, Bear Creek is an open enrollment school. We are an ecumenical community that accepts students from a wide variety of Christian churches as well as those who do not necessarily identify with the Christian faith.
