New Covenant Christian School is a religious, non-profit organization representing Jesus Christ throughout our local community.
New Covenant Christian School requires all persons actively involved with the school to be born-again Christians, living their lives as Christian role models (Romans 10:9-10; I Timothy 4:12; Luke 6:40). This includes all members of the Board of Trustees, employees, coaches, and volunteers. This group shall hereby be known as the New Covenant Community. All members of the New Covenant Community will conduct themselves in a way that will not raise questions regarding their Christian testimonies. A Christian lifestyle should reflect the biblical perspective of integrity and appropriate personal and family relationships, business conduct and moral behavior. The New Covenant Community is expected to demonstrate a teachable spirit, an ability to share love for others, a willingness to live contentedly under authority, and a commitment to follow the guidelines outlined in Matthew 18:15-35 for conflict resolution.
The New Covenant Christian School Faculty-Staff Handbook and Constitution require the New Covenant Community to maintain a lifestyle based on biblical standards of moral conduct. Moral misconduct, which violates the bona fide occupational qualification for the New Covenant Community to be Christian role models, includes, but is not limited to, promiscuity, homosexual behavior and/or sexual orientation, bisexuality, polygamy, transgender identity, or any other violation of the unique roles of male and female (Exodus 20:14; Leviticus 18:7–23; 20:10–21; Deuteronomy 5:18; Matthew 5:27–28; 15:19; Romans 1:21-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9-20).
New Covenant Christian School believes that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive covenant union, as delineated in Scripture (Genesis 2:18-25) and that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other and that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity is engaged in outside of marriage (Genesis 1:27–28; 2:21–24, Matthew 19:4–9; Mark 10:5–9; Ephesians 5:22–33).
That to preserve New Covenant Christian School’s function and integrity, all members of the New Covenant Community must be born-again Christians, living their lives as Christian role models (Romans 10:9-10; I Timothy 4:12), maintaining a lifestyle based on biblical standards of conduct. Failure to do so may result in progressive discipline, dismissal of employment, or loss of volunteer privileges. It is the goal of New Covenant Christian School that all members of the New Covenant Community will have a lifestyle where “…He might have the pre-eminence”. (Colossians 1:18)
I declare that as a follower of Christ, I am not engaging in and commit to not engage in inappropriate sexual conduct. Inappropriate conduct includes, but is not limited to, such behaviors as the following: heterosexual activity outside of marriage (e.g. premarital sex, cohabitation, extramarital sex), homosexual activity, sexual harassment, and sexual abuse or improprieties toward minors as defined by Scripture and federal or state law.
