God’s Will for Education
Perhaps you are at the point of attempting to determine God’s will for the education of your children. You may not know whether to choose home school, public school, or a Christian school. I would say that Faith Baptist should be among your options. Here’s why.
First of all, Faith offers a strong academic curriculum through a biblical worldview. For example, Creation Science and Intelligent Design are taught in place of the Theory of Evolution. Also, students examine historical events with a biblical philosophy and determine right choices for today based on those past occurrences. Finally, students are taught to accurately interpret and apply biblical principles for themselves in Bible classes. Both this year and last, my Bible teachers assigned papers in which we had to describe our personal standards on various issues and support them with biblical principles.
Though Faith does offer biblically based academics, it also surrounds the students with godly influences. The teachers are there to serve the students, not to earn lots of money. Each of the teachers I have had over the years has not only encouraged me to perform to the best of my ability in the subject area, but also to glorify God in the way I complete my assignments.
Finally, Faith prepares its students for future service of Christ. Through the various classes, sports teams, clubs, and other activities, students are taught how to use their skills and talents for the glory of God and the furtherance of the gospel.
Though it is not God’s will that every student should attend Faith, before choosing any other option, I would recommend considering the various benefits of Faith Baptist Schools.
