A Faith Baptist Education
Contrary to the graveyard of unsuccessful educational programs including the "look say" approach to reading, whole language, and new, new math, the Christian school has been able to stand successfully on the following key principles: structured education is God-centered and authoritarian in its approach. Within these two principles, effective Scriptural discipline and godly character training can be incorporated into the Christian classroom. Students are required to sit up straight, to do their work, and to pay attention. Reading, writing, and arithmetic are taught in the light of God's Word. Dignity of work and pride in America is encouraged; and honesty, integrity, and strong character are all traits to be sought after. read more
As we celebrate over 50 years of Christian education at Faith Baptist Schools, it is important to be reminded about the biblical foundation for the very existence of that education. It is also important to remember that there is a God-ordained order of priority when it comes to the principal participants involved in that educational process.
God has given parents responsibility for the education of their children. The church has also been ordained by God to provide godly instruction for young and old alike. Ephesians 4:11-12 says, "And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ." Faith Baptist Schools is a ministry of Faith Baptist Church, and its primary responsibility is to partner with parents to provide a biblical based education for their children.
