Athletics are another key element of character development.
Faith Christian School’s athletic program in Roanoke, VA offers incredible opportunities to grow and compete.
FCS encourages all its students to experience athletic competition because the requirements of athletics often play a powerful role in preparing them for all of life, Persistence, discipline, hard work, teamwork, fairness, camaraderie, camaraderie, selflessness, courage, as well as the ability to both win and lose well. are all characteristics of a successful person. When godly coaches model godly behavior and mold students through athletics, lasting godly character is formed. Athletic competition can give students a deeper understanding of the Gospel itself.
Success is in the willingness to engage, the courage to compete, win or lose, and to offer one’s very best as enough.Competition provides the opportunity to test ourselves against others and even against ourselves. Competition can be an appropriate means of encouraging improvement and movement toward excellence. To risk in any area stretches us and can expose motives driven by selfishness and pride.

Competition gives students unique chances to reflect on where they find their ultimate worth and provides a foundation in a true belief that the Gospel proclaims God’s love before they have accomplished anything, and that nothing they can do will increase or decrease His love for them. FCS desires that its students experience the testing (physical, intellectual, emotional, spiritual) that competition brings, as well as God’s delight in expressing His gifts in them. Competition can build courage, develop leadership and followership, expose idols, give opportunities to learn humility and grace, and provide deep satisfaction in accomplishment through hard work. The goal is that the students move beyond the act of competition to deepen their biblical understanding of its purpose, pitfalls, and rewards.
