OUR MISSION & VISION

THROUGH GOSPEL-CENTERED COMMUNITY, LIVING EDUCATION ENRICHMENT, AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP, LIVING LOVE COLLECTIVE EXISTS TO INSPIRE HOMESCHOOLING FAMILIES TO USE THEIR GIFTS AND TALENTS TO BE THE HANDS AND FEET OF JESUS.

CORE VALUES & BELIEFS
To nurture spiritual and creative growth that enriches the family through community, living education, creativity, entrepreneurship, and stewardship. These five goals and outcomes are the heartbeat of what we value and will pursue as we move forward.

Community: Cultivate and nurture a Christ-Centered Community to live in harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus. So that together we may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ with one voice. (Romans 15:5-7)

Living Education: To enrich the family and home culture by pursuing knowledge, wisdom, and understanding through scripture, hymns, and the goodness and beauty of creation using a Charlotte Mason philosophy. (Colossians 3:15-17, Ecclesiastes 7:7)

Creativity: To grow creatively, realizing that we possess the creator's creativity and, through Christ's transforming power, will be fully equipped to be molded into our purpose to glorify God. (Genesis 1:27, Isaiah 64:8, 2 Timothy 2:21)

Entrepreneurship: Encouraging families to use ingenuity and imagination to tangibly pursue God-given giftings in every season of life and to model purposefully committing all our work to the Lord. (Proverbs 16:3, Colossians 3:23, Proverbs 3:5-6)

Stewardship: Stewarding our time, talent, and finances to further the mission to preserve the family and live out our lives in a meaningful and intentional way that is pleasing to the Lord. (1 Peter 4:10, Ephesians 2:10 Ephesians 5:8-10)
We are dedicated to our distinct beliefs, which are the core of our community culture.

What We Believe

GOD
One God eternally exists in three equally divine persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is the fully active power of God at work in the world today.

HUMANITY
Humanity is God's crowning work in creation. Purposed to primarily glorify God by representing him on earth and living in a relationship with him and others.

THE BIBLE
The Bible is wholly authentic, inspired, entirely trustworthy, and without error in the original writings...the Bible is the revealed word of God...

JESUS
Jesus, the Son, was born of a virgin and came to earth because of God's love for humanity...our example and victorious King.

SALVATION
Salvation is God's gift of redemption for His church. It is the free gift of grace received by faith alone in Jesus Christ...

GOSPEL
The Gospel is the good news that God...sent Jesus...to live, die, and be raised in our place for the punishment of our sins...so that...we are reconciled to God...

THE CHURCH
The Church is God's chosen instrument to bring His Gospel to every man, woman, and child. There is one church of which Jesus Christ is the head…

“One more thing is of vital importance; children must have books, living books; the best are not too good for them; anything less than the best is not good enough....”

"Give children a wide range of subjects, with the end in view of establishing in each case some one or more of the relations I have indicated. Let them learn from first-hand sources of information--really good books, the best going, on the subject they are engaged upon. Let them get at the books themselves...books teeming with ideas fresh from the minds of thinkers upon every subject to which we can wish to introduce children. ”
