Spiritual and Moral Goals
Theological foundation for Spiritual and moral goals
-The educational philosophy of CCS is based upon a God centered view of man and truth as presented in the Bible, as detailed by our Statement of Faith.
-Since we believe God created and sustains all things through his son Jesus, the universe and all life are dynamically related to God and have the purpose of glorifying Him. Man was created in God’s image with the unique capacity to respond to God voluntarily.
-Because man is sinful by nature and by choice, he cannot in a sinful condition, know or honor God in his/her life. The goal of education should therefore be to enable man to personally know God, encourage them to love Him, and to equip them to serve Him.
-The authority for such an education cannot come solely from the school. It comes both from God’s command that the children be taught to love God and put him first in their lives, and from the parents who are responsible for the overall education and training of their children. At the request of the parents, the Christian schools, along with the local church, become partners in their education. From this philosophy come our missions and goals.
