Spiritual Life

Once a week, Mount Pisgah students attend Chapel; an environment meant to inspire a student’s spiritual development. Attending a Chapel in any division you will find a mixture of message and fun.

The Lower School students attend a formal Chapel service where messages focus on biblical character traits meant to inform a student’s heart while compelling them to serve their peers. Student are also led in songs…and don’t be surprised to see a teacher-led skit bringing the trait to life as well.

In the Middle school, each Chapel promises to be a high-energy event. Students come into music, often participate in a humorous game and receive an individual ticket for the coveted, weekly raffle prize. Each chapel ends with a relevant message given by teachers or Senior Peer Leaders rooted in the Gospel.

Chapel in Upper School is an entirely student-led environment. Chapel Team, taken as an additional Bible elective, consist of students who want to make a relevant and entertaining environment where students can have the opportunity to grow in their faith. The Team often creates a Chapel with music, student produced videos and a teacher or student message around topics engaging Christian faith, relevant to the their high school experience.

  • Convocation

    Mount Pisgah Christian School opens and closes each school year with a Convocation service. Our community thanks God for another school year, asks for grace and blessings and celebrates the opportunity to worship together. Students participate in the service in many ways: scripture readings, choral performances, etc.

    One of the most heartwarming traditions is the procession of classes, including the Alpha-Omega walk when kindergarten students and our seniors make their way down the aisle, hand-in-hand.
  • Mission Trips

    Mount Pisgah students, families, and faculty work the mission field close to home and across the globe sharing God's love. Hands and hearts have pitched in to teach Vacation Bible School in remote locations, provided care for those who are homeless, and helped in cleaning and rebuilding after Hurricane Katrina.

    Not only do these trips help Mount Pisgah make a global difference, they also result in dramatic impacts on the participants themselves.
    After completing her first year at Mount Pisgah, and before returning to her home in Korea, Jane Kim served the people of Haiti and made a difference in many children's lives.

    "I went to Haiti and I learned so many things from this mission trip," said Jane. "I was tired but it was great! The children were so cute and the people were pure. I'm grateful to God that I could experience this at a young age."
  • Service

    Mount Pisgah students, families and faculty devote countless hours to serving the community through numerous volunteer organizations including North Fulton Community Charities, Samaritan's Purse, Drake House, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Thankful Friday, (held the Friday before Thanksgiving), features service projects in all lower school classrooms where students share a meaningful service activity with a family member. A heartfelt chapel service is then held where students donate their Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. 

    Prep school students participate in annual service day activities off campus and Upper School completes complete a required number of service hour activities of their own choosing. Seniors stay the entire week at Sharptop, spending the second half of the retreat serving middle school students as Cabin Leaders or Workcrew.

Statement of Christian Belief

At Mount Pisgah, students at every level are required to participate in a Bible curriculum designed to inform them of, and familiarize them with, the sacred text of the Christian faith at developmentally-appropriate stages throughout their academic careers. Students of the Christian faith are strongly encouraged to improve upon their biblical literacy and further their personal faith, while students who are not of the Christian faith are invited to understand the teachings of the sacred text of one of the world’s largest faith traditions, while sharing the similarities and difference of their own sacred text.

Our Beliefs

  • We believe in the infinite, personal God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and, Holy Spirit. God is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent.
  • We believe the Bible to be the infallible, authoritative basis for our understanding of doctrine and truth.
  • We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory to judge the living and the dead.
  • We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit in response to an individual’s acceptance of the gospel message is absolutely necessary for the salvation of lost and sinful men.
  • We believe salvation is by grace through faith alone.
  • We believe the Christian life is possible only by the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit enabling the believer to live a godly and sanctified life.
  • We believe in a life eternal – the saved to a resurrection of life and the lost to a place of eternal separation from God and love.
  • We believe in the unity of believers through the sharing of common life in Christ Jesus.
  • We believe God offers redemption to all who confess and repent of their sin (Acts 3:19-21; Romans 10:9-10; I Corinthians 6:9-11).
  • We believe that God creates each human as uniquely male or female, and that each person is created in God’s image (Genesis 1:26-27).
  • We believe marriage is the union of one man and one woman in a three-way covenant with God (Genesis 2:18-25; Mark 10:6-9). We believe God intends sexual intimacy as a gift for a man and woman who are covenanted together in this unique union of marriage (1 Corinthians 6:18; 7:2-5; Hebrews 13:4).
  • We believe that any form of sexual activity outside of the marriage covenant is sin (Matthew 15:18-20; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10).
  • We believe that all human life is precious as created in God’s image. We believe this extends to every stage of human life from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and cherish all human life (Psalm 139).
  • We believe that we all sin, and while we cannot condone, endorse, or in any way participate in the expression of beliefs or lifestyles that are at odds with this statement of faith, all persons must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity (Mark 12:28-31). In this context, we do not believe that disagreement with another’s beliefs is to be equated with intolerance or a form of “hate speech.” While God sets clear ethical standards through His infallible word – the Bible – for which we are to stand without compromise, God loves all men and women, even those who reject His moral imperatives.
  • We believe that in order to preserve the ministry values and integrity of Mount Pisgah Christian School’s mission, and in order to maintain our fundamental convictions as based on the Scripture,  families enrolled by and employees employed by Mount Pisgah Christian School agree to acknowledge and respect this Statement of Faith.

Our Foundation: The Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;  from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic (universal) church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
