Missionary, Jim Elliot (1927 – 1956)
Jim Elliot Christian High School is named after a remarkable man of God who gave his life in missionary service. We honor his life of faith and sacrificial service to the Lord Jesus Christ and we strive to follow his example by using our education and developed skills to honor God with His life.
The life and death of Missionary Jim Elliot was a testimony of a man committed to the will of God. He sought God’s will, pleaded for it, waited for it – and most importantly – obeyed it. Jim grew up in Portland, Oregon. A gifted writer and speaker, he later graduated from Wheaton College in Wheaton Illinois with honors and pursued a missionary life in Latin America.
Joined by four equally called and brave friends (Nate Saint, Roger Youderian, Ed McCully and Pete Fleming), these five men willingly took on the challenge of bringing the Gospel of Jesus to the unreached and violent Waodani Tribe in Ecuador. January 8, 1956 these men made first contact with the tribe and were martyred for the sake of the gospel. Jim Elliot’s wife Elizabeth and Nate Saint’s sister continued to work and many of the tribe were transformed by the power of the Gospel.

Statement of Faith
Elliot is a non-denominational Christian school that welcomes all expressions of orthodox Christianity. We affirm the following:
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21).
We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons- Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30).
We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33), His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35), His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11), His vicarious and atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9), His resurrection (John 11:25, I Corinthians 15:4), His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19), and His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11).
We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace and through faith alone we are saved (John 3:16-19, 5:24, Romans 3:23, 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5.)
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life; they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28-29).
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9, I Corinthians 12:12-13, Galatians 3:26-28).
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14, I Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20, Ephesians 4:30, 5:18).
We believe in the creation of man by the direct act of God (Genesis 1:26-28, 5:1-2).
