Athletics

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, 
as working for the Lord, not for men."
                                            Colossians 3:23

 

 

  Our Athletic Mission Statement:  May God help us to . . .build character through competition, passionately inspire a devotion to excellence, and develop champions for Jesus Christ.

We believe that competition presents challenges similar to those that every person might one day face in life.  Although these challenges may be on a smaller scale, the ways in which we overcome them and the lessons that we learn from them are the same.  Cornerstone Christian’s Athletic Program is dedicated to developing character through sports.  We strive to promote working together in oneness, to conquer fears, to overcome obstacles, to look for lessons and motivation in loss, and for humility and opportunity in victory.

Most importantly, we strive to honorably represent our Lord Jesus Christ and to advance His Kingdom through our words, our thoughts, and our deeds. The only true guidelines to accomplish this task are found in the Bible, the inspired Word of God.  At Cornerstone Christian School, we recognize a battle far greater than any sporting event: a battle for people’s eternal souls.  As coaches at Cornerstone Christian School, we are to be diligent and determined as we fight to develop champions for Christ. Let us make a pledge together to focus on the invisible, chase the intangible, and do the impossible.
