Disciples not only know the teachings of Christ, they also strive to imitate Him in all that they do and say. Jesus calls us to not only speak the Gospel but to also develop relationships with others so they can learn how to imitate Jesus Christ in their own lives.
When a student grasps the impact of the Gospel and recognizes the love and sacrifice of Jesus to provide salvation for a lost world, the natural response should be to live a life of excellence, a life worthy of such love and sacrifice. At SBA, students are encouraged to complete all tasks, whether they are academic, athletic, or artistic, with the mindset that they are working to bring glory to God.
Those who are followers of Jesus are called to lives of integrity, which means that their attitudes and behaviors are wholesome and blameless at all times, not just when they are being watched by someone else. A person who lives with integrity understands that he is ultimately responsible to God and will give an account to him for all things.
