Go Beyond. A motto, or a battle cry, that represents “us” in just two words. Simple yet ambitious. Two words that imply action and endless pursuit. An overarching goal that is never fully achieved and a dream that is never fully realized. As soon as our school succeeds in any arena, we almost immediately hear the charge again: Go Beyond! It is a motto that never allows the finish line to come into view.
Hang in there with me and keep reading.
At Timothy Christian School we Go Beyond the boundaries and limitations of status quo. We Go Beyond previous benchmarks and accomplishments. We Go Beyond the conventional standards that have limited the potential impact of education for too long. Most importantly, we Go Beyond the academic teaching of the Bible and put our faith into action. Perhaps most impressive about this is that the entire Timothy community has adopted this motto. Students, teachers and staff, parents, grandparents, alumni, volunteers, prayer warriors, donors, board members, and the list goes on. The evidence is clear: We don’t settle for less around here.
For the glory of God, Timothy Christian Schools exists to uphold Biblical truth, ignite academic growth, and inspire courageous leaderships one student at a time.
This mindset of commitment and drive can often lead to pride. Yet in the midst of this great strength you will find a humble admission here at Timothy, actually a core belief, that we can accomplish nothing of eternal value apart from Jesus Christ. (John 15:5) He is above all, and through all, and in us all. (Ephesians 4:6) We desire to give Jesus Christ the highest place in our school and to make a difference in the lives of others for His cause and His Kingdom. It is because of Jesus that we Go Beyond. And it is because of Jesus that we are not overwhelmed in our pursuits.
Timothy Christian Schools will develop life-long learners and servant leaders who fully live out their purpose in the world for Christ.
There are many ways you Go Beyond for our school, including with your time, skill sets, and financial support. What interests you the most? Where can you help most meaningfully? I know I can count on the Timothy community to step up. Or perhaps better phrased, I know I can count on the Timothy community to Go Beyond!
Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20, 21 NASB
