  • Portland Christian School is not a substitute for the Christian home or Christian parents or congregational activity, but is a supplement.
  • We believe education concerns the whole nature of man--body, mind and spirit.
  • To educate and train this mind and this body to the neglect of the spiritual nature is the sad weakness of public education.
  • It is in man's spiritual nature that he is most like or unlike God who created him to be in His image.
  • The greatest tool in the hands of man for the education of his spirit is the Bible.
