Employment Criteria

FLCS employs persons without regard to race, color, national or ethnic origin or qualifying disability.  However, as a specifically Christian school and ministry of the church, FLCS reserves the right to deny employment based on a person’s religious beliefs and/or practices that are in conflict with Biblical teaching*, as interpreted by the Elder Board of the church.

Born Again Christian
plus icon

The employee must be born again. If you are unsure what that means or are certain you are not born again, please click here.  Because there are differing opinions of what it means to be born again and because it is the primary qualification for employment, FLCS reserves the right to determine if a prospective employee meets this criterion.

FLCS Doctrine

The employee must agree with the FLCS Doctrinal Statement.

Employee Criteria

The employee must not practice, believe in or advocate:

a.  Any so-called “Christian” religion that teaches that Jesus is not God; that Jesus and Lucifer (Satan) are brothers; that there is no heaven and/or hell; that there is any mediator between man and God, the Father, except Jesus Christ; that salvation is based in part or in whole on good works as opposed to faith alone; that there is, after death, any intermediary state, such as purgatory, before entering heaven or hell; that keeping the Sabbath is necessary for salvation.

b.  Any non-Christian religion, such as Wicca, Paganism, Islam, Buddhism or Atheism (this is, obviously, not an exhaustive list).

c.  Sexual activity outside of marriage.

d. Same-sex romantic relationships, sexual activity or marriage, or the appropriateness of the same.

e.  Co-habitation with a member of the opposite sex in a relationship that substantially constitutes or mimics a marriage relationship, even if there is no sexual activity.

f.  Drunkenness, the use of any illegal drugs, or the misuse of legal drugs.

The Bible

The employee must believe in a literal interpretation of Genesis chapters one and two; specifically that the entire physical universe, including the earth and all living things, was created by God in six literal 24-hour days; that the universe is less than 10,000 literal years old; that on the sixth day God created the first two human beings, Adam and Eve, who were, therefore, not descended from any other species or life form.

In other words, employees must hold to a young-earth, creationist view and repudiate the theories of 1) “the big bang,” 2) a billions-of-years-old universe and 3) species evolving from lower life forms through evolution.
