Kingdom Education

Definition: "Kingdom Education is a life-long, Bible based, Christ-centered process of leading a child to Christ, building a child up in Christ, and equipping a child to serve Christ," (Schultz. 2002, pg. 29)     

Supporting Scripture

“That the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born, that they may arise and tell them to their children, that they should put their confidence in God and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments”  (Psalm 78:6, 7). 

“We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ” (Colossians 1:28).

 

Our students have a distinct advantage over their college classmates and future co-workers who do not know God or His provisions and have not integrated God's truth into their worldview.

Skeptics are often critical of our emphasis on biblical worldview, stating that it comes at the cost of strong academics.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Our minds were designed by an all-knowing Creator, to function best when coupled with a close, intimate personal relationship with Christ.

At every level and in every subject our students learn God's Truth is relevant to academics.  God reveals His character and attributes in math, science, history, english, and in all subjects.  Academics find a renewed relevance and permanence as it is given purpose and meaning within the Kingdom of Christ.
