WELCOME TO ECS
Thank you for visiting us! Whether you’re a prospective family looking for a quality school, a casual visitor just checking us out, or already a member of our school family, we hope you find plenty of resources here to keep you informed.
Eugene Christian School is an independent, non-denominational school serving the greater Eugene-Springfield area since 1955. We currently serve 350 students. Our families represent around 40 churches from the area. We offer outstanding programs from pre-school through 8th grade.
We are not just another school. We partner with families to raise leaders for the Kingdom of God. We know that between family, school and our worship communities, students will grow in their knowledge and application of Jesus Christ in our world.
Our mission is to assist the family by providing a Christ-centered Bible-based education that inspires each student to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and pursue excellence in moral character, academics, and service to others.
Matthew 6:33 summarizes our mission: We seek God's ways first and become the kind of people He can use for His glory.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is 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; in His sinless life; in His miracles; in His victorious and atoning death through His shed 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 for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit who indwells Christians enabling them to live godly lives.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved are resurrected to eternal life and those who are lost are resurrected to eternal separation from God.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
DEVELOPING KINGDOM LEADERS
Our society is looking for servant leaders who are willing to seek first the Kingdom of God and become excellent in all they do.
Naturally, a Kingdom leader is one that others can "count on" because of their God-focused vision on life. Kingdom leaders are intelligent, compassionate, driven, and without pride or ego. Eugene Christian School is in the business of developing these kind of Kingdom leaders that will influence organizations and communities for the glory of the King.
Eugene Christian School has a long tradition in Eugene where it was founded in 1955. At that time there were no Christian schools operating in Eugene. A group of visionaries representing several churches under the leadership of Walter Huss, founded the school known then as Emerald Empire Christian School. The school met in several churches before the property was purchased in 1957 on West Amazon – where we were located until we moved to our current location at 2895 Chad Drive in Eugene in 2012.
Eugene Christian School is accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and AdvancED (formerly NWAC). To achieve and maintain accredited status, Eugene Christian School annually reviews its performance and undergoes an external site visit every 5 years.
