Crusader Character Code

At Valley Lutheran School, Christian character doesn’t just happen, it’s taught and caught – both at school and at home.  That’s why the dedicated, ministry-minded teachers and staff at Valley partner with parents to raise up young men and women of faith who are strong, caring leaders in the world around them.

Our Crusader Code guides us towards what rock-solid Christian character looks like. Valley Crusaders are:

Christ-Centered

We are focused on Jesus Christ as Lord and place Him at the center of all we think, say, and do.

Galatians 2:20

“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”

Respectful

We honor those around us by exhibiting care, concern, and consideration for their needs and feelings. We honor those in authority over us.

Philippians 2:3

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.”

Unified

We work together and treat each person as an important member of the body of Christ.

1 Corinthians 12:12

“For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.”

Servant-Hearted

We love serving God by serving one another and those in our community.

1 Peter 4:10

“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.”

Appreciative

We are grateful and show thankfulness to those around us.

Colossians 3:15

“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”

Dedicated

We are wholly committed to living out our faith in Jesus in both big and small ways.

1 Thessalonians 1:3

“Remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Encouraging

We choose to support one another through all we say and do.

Romans 1:12

“That we may be mutually encouraged by each other's faith, both yours and mine.”

Responsible

We take control of our actions and seek to make sound decisions.

Proverbs 2:6-7

“For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity.”
