At Santa Fe Christian Schools, we partner with Christian parents to be a Christ-centered, college preparatory school. While at SFC, it is our mission to ensure that every one of our students is known, loved, and valued, taught excellence in and out of the classroom, and rooted in a biblical foundation. It is our prayerful hope that every graduate of SFC would live a life of faith, service, and leadership for Christ. We invite you to join us!

Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible and authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe there is only one God eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, and His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
  • We believe that salvation is by grace alone through faith, apart from works, by the merit of the shed blood of Christ and that the born-again believer is eternally secure in Christ.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit by indwelling the Christian, enabling him to live a godly life.
  • We believe in the individual priesthood of the believer.
