Why Christian Education?
There are many reasons parents choose a Christian education for their children some good and some poor. The best reason for choosing a Christian education is because you believe that God wants you to provide your children with godly training, not just at home, but at church and at school as well.
What are a few of the other good reasons for choosing a Christian education? What follows is only a partial list.
Parents responsibility to train. You as parents, recognize that Scripture is clear that the parents are called to train their children, but you also realize that you need help to accomplish this. You need your beliefs and training to be reinforced when you can’t be there with your child, so you look to Christian education for that help.
Biblically centered curriculum. Christ is the Creator, the Sustainer, and Redeemer. The triune God is everywhere, in everything and therefore should be given preeminence in all areas of our lives and facets of ones educational training. Christian school curriculum does just that. It shows, links, and identifies God to every subject. Not something you get in a secular education.
Godly examples teaching your children. Children spend anywhere from 6 to more than 11 hours a day at school away from your direct influence. With a Christian education your child will be taught by and interacting with Christian teachers and staff who are fellow believers following a call to partner with you to train your children.
Focus placed upon a Christian world view. As children mature, they begin to make more decisions for themselves. A Christian education trains them to use the Bible and godly principles to judge right from wrong and to compare information and choices to the truth taught in Scripture. A Christian education stresses that all areas of life, vocational choices, view of history and governments, be looked at and understood from a Biblical viewpoint.
Godly character traits taught. The Bible is so much more than a book of how to get to heaven. It’s a book of how to know God, the character of God and of how to live a life pleasing to the Creator. A Christian education teaches and stresses the godly character traits of servanthood, obedience, responsibility, commitment, and self-sacrifice just to mention a few.
These are just a few of the many reasons to choose a Christian education. If these are some of the reasons that you are looking for a Christian education for your children, then God will bless you and your family and He will provide the means by which you can afford the investment in time, commitment and of course finances.
