“ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ “
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
These words from Jesus, found in Matthew 22:37-38 and John 13:34-35, are a reflection of the life Jesus lived. Our highest calling is to show the same love to others that Jesus showed us.
As is stated in our doctrinal beliefs, we believe Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon himself the demands and necessities of human nature and identifying himself completely with mankind, yet He was without sin. He offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all humanity by dying on the cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate God’s power over sin and death. He ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God. He is the only mediator and reconciler between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and rule as King of kings. (Matt. 1:22-23, John 1:1-5, Phil. 2:5-11; Col. 1:13-22, Col. 2-9, and 1 Thess. 4:14-18)
At MCS, our staff works together as a body of believers to help lead and guide each student to a relationship with Jesus Christ that is real and personal. The relationships our staff members have with their students is the first access point to speaking into students’ lives. There are also three other areas where MCS intentionally focuses on spiritual growth: Bible Class, Chapel, and Missions.
“Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!”
