"In Deuteronomy 6:7, the Word of God commands parents to teach Godly principles to their children "when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up." Simply stated, we are constantly, consistently to train our children in what is right, wherever we are and in whatever we are doing. In other words, every Christian family should have the conviction of giving their children a Christian education. How can parents who truly love their children and want them to develop a relationship with Christ send these same children to a public school system that undermines everything they are trying to accomplish? Can you visualize the Children of Israel sending their children back into, Egypt to go to school?"
"We believe in Creation. The public schools teach evolution. We believe that God is in control. The public school teaches humanism and that man is in control. We believe in praying without ceasing. Many public schools do not even allow a moment of prayer. We believe in a lifestyle that is pure, holy, and morally right in the sight of God while the public school promotes alternative lifestyles." "What do we, as Christians, have in common with such a place? Can we expect our children to serve the Lord after they have been exposed to such teachings contrary to the Word of God for more than 30 hours each week?"
"Many young people are thankful for parents who removed them from such an influence and placed them in a Christian school. How important it is to be exposed to the Bible throughout one's day, to memorize Scripture, experience daily morning devotions, thrill at the hearing of weekly chapel messages, and be taught by example how to build L and maintain a relationship with Christ. Christian education must continue for generation after generation. What a great blessing it is to have a Christian heritage."
"Each aspect of Christian education should be an extension of Biblical principles. These principles should all work for one common goal: to teach and train young people to be more like Christ. In Proverbs 1 :7, the Bible states "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge." Every young person must be given multiple opportunities to know Christ as his Saviour. Until a student knows Christ, all education is for naught."
"To train implies not only the presenting of knowledge but the practicing of that knowledge. In Proverbs 22:6, the Bible reads, "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." A wise pastor once said, "Train up a child in the way he should go, follow it yourself, and he will follow you." How very true! A Godly parent, pastor, or Christian educator understands that training is a living of your faith-a practicing of your belief. If we live a joyful Christian life, we are training our children that living for God is not only right but truly living."
"Young people follow. May it always be said that we led them down the right path."
"What a privilege to be entrusted with the life of a child! May each of us continue to love our Lord and our children enough to sacrifice for Christian Education."
