The primary goal of Christian education is to inspire a biblical world view in each student. Not only so they can defend and support their faith, but also so they can recognize falsehood in the world around them. The argument is used that Christian schools do not prepare children for the "real" world. The implication is that a Christian school does not prepare children to become like the rest of the world. "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:2. A truly Christian education will purposefully prepare children to be set apart from the world and not like it so they may be salt and light in the darkness of the "real" world.

Christian education will serve the student in three general areas.

  1. Curriculum: to learn the facts, to do the math, to read the selection, and so on. An education that is truly Christian is taught from a biblical base so that students may respond more adequately to God through loving and serving Him.
  2. Life in Christ: fellowship, character training, the bearing of one another's burdens, reaching the lost, spiritual disciplines.
  3. Love of God: the most important thing a student learns, the love of God for him, and to love Him in return, is ultimately found on an individual basis. A Christian school should assist in that discovery. It can do no more and no less, for salvation cannot be forced.

Modern education strives after the first area but cannot even hope to address the other two. Jesus said, "Seek first the kingdom of God and its righteousness, and all these other things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:33

The foundation of a truly Christian education is built upon a Christian philosophy centered on God's Word.
