Statement of Philosophy

The philosophy of Christian education at Friends Christian School is based upon the existence of a living God who created all things and has revealed Himself to us. The revelation has come through the written word, the Bible, through the living Word, Jesus Christ, and through creation.

The Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. Jesus Christ is the central theme of history and is the central authority of what men say, do, or believe. Man was created in God’s image, but that image was ruined at the fall when man chose to sin against God. God provided a way of redemption for man through the incarnation, death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ. A regenerated person receives the Holy Spirit to guide him into all truth.

The education at Friends Christian School is God-centered and seeks to view life in every dimension as God sees it. All educational goals and objectives are found within the Bible, among which are glorifying God, reaching the lost, and training and maturing individual believers.

The knowledge of Jesus Christ is essential for personal individual development in matters physical, mental, social, and spiritual. All members of the educational process at Friends Christian School are personally committed to Jesus Christ. We believe that the educational process cannot truly take place apart from the ministry of the Holy Spirit.

We believe that a proper relationship between family, church, and school is essential to Christian education. It is the responsibility of the parents to teach and train a child. Friends Christian School, as a ministry of the church, is an extension of the educational process of the home.

The education offered at Friends Christian School is designed to meet the student on his level of development and growth. We strive to instill the proper priorities of life, the first being individual commitment to Jesus Christ. The educators at Friends Christian School are committed to the basic principles of our philosophy, and have demonstrated effectiveness in their ability to communicate them.
