Whether you are just beginning to explore the possibilities or you already have determined that Christian education is right for your family, you undoubtedly want your child to succeed, both academically and socially. But have you ever asked the question,
“What is the purpose of education?”
Christian Education acknowledges the TRUTH about God’s world.
A Christian education is more than just a Bible class. Every subject and extracurricular activity—including math, science, economics, history, music, and athletics—is taught and learned from a truthful, Biblical perspective.
Christian Education establishes a worldview where God is the center of the universe.
As we learn systematically about God’s world, we also gain a better understanding about the origin, meaning, and purpose of life. An educational philosophy that fails to acknowledge God as the source of all truth and Jesus Christ as Lord will assume that human beings are basically good and that man, rather than God, is the center of the universe.
Christian Education helps students develop wisdom and understanding.
Proverbs 9:10 says that “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” In a Christian education environment, students are not only taught the truth about God’s world, they are also consistently nurtured in their knowledge of the Holy One.
Christian Education helps students to prepare for their future calling.
As students learn about their world from the perspective of the Word of God, they will be encouraged to live their lives in light of God’s will for them. A Christian Education will help students explore and cultivate their interests and abilities in ways that will honor and serve Him. “For it is God who works in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.” (Philippians 2:13)
