Philosophy of Christian Education
We believe there are three essential components for the successful education of a child. These three components are listed in order of responsibility to God for the training of godly young men and women.
Parents – The God-given primary responsibility for the training and education of children is that of the parents.
Church – Next in importance is the ministry of the local church in the life of the family. We strongly encourage every family to be committed, through the attendance and participation, to a “Biblical” church. A “Biblical” church is a church that adheres to the fundamentals of the Christian faith and endeavors to keep itself pure from worldly practices.
School – Finally, and in proper order, is the school that the parents have chosen to help them with the education of their children. The school will never be able to stand in place of the parents or church. However, in proper order these three components play a stabilizing role in the education and development of a child.
When these three are in agreement in philosophy, standards and convictions, the outcome will be the development of young men and women who are firmly grounded in Truth and able to function faithfully in the world around them. When there is inconsistency and disagreement in these three, there is propensity toward disrespect for one of these authorities and may result in rebellion to authority in the life of the child.
Covenant Christian Academy is a ministry of Churches of Christ and is the extension of the Christian home. We believe there is a biblical perspective for every academic discipline. We believe that the true knowledge can be gained only as each discipline is taught and learned from the perspective of the principles of God’s Word. At Covenant Christian Academy, we believe that an academic education is finite, but an education in God’s truth is infinite
Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, and, inerrant Word of God (11 Timothy 3:15, 11 Peter 1:21)
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30).
We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33);
His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35);
His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; Hebrews 7:26);
His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:4);
His resurrection (John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:4);
His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); and
His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11).
We believe in the removal of sins through the blood of Jesus and the regeneration of the Holy Spirit. We believe that all men choose to sin when they reach the age of accountability. Romans 3:23 teaches, “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. We believe that “without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6). We believe God’s grace is made available to anyone who wishes to take the free gift. We believe in order for one to take the gift of grace he /she must Hear (Romans 10:17), Believe (John 3:16), Repent (Luke 13:3, Acts 2:38), Confess the Lordship of Christ (Matthew 10:32, Matthew 16:16), be Immersed (1 Peter 3:21, Acts 2:38, Matthew 28:19 and 20) and, arise to walk in newness of life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved to the resurrection of life, and they that are lost to the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28-29).
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28).
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:30; Ephesians 5:18)
