Our Mission

Doctrinal Commitments


he Bible

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. All Scripture is totally true and trustworthy.

There is one living and true God who is the creator, redeemer, and preserver of the universe. God is infinite in holiness and all other perfections and reveals himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.God the Son: Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ He was fully human and divine. While he was without sin, his substitutionary death and resurrection made provision for the redemption of sin.

Salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ’s atoning work alone, and is evidenced by Christ’s Lordship in the believer’s life.

Faith & Culture
All Christians are under obligation to seek to make the will of Christ supreme in our own lives and in human society as a sign of God’s coming Kingdom.

The Family
God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption. Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime.

How does UnifiEd define success?

Success is determined when an organization completes a strategic learning cycle that begins and ends with a survey that demonstrates biblically motivated growth in cultural intelligence.
UnifiEd is motivated by the hope of Kingdom Unity . Our desire is to resource Christian schools to actualize the Ephesians 2:14 reality of the “dividing wall of hostility being torn down.” Our prayer is to equip every student and Christian educator with the cultural intelligence to navigate a racially, politically, and ideologically polarized world.
