We believe that the Bible clearly teaches that man and woman were created perfect and holy; and in His will with each other. However, they lost this “image of God” when sin entered the world. Through Adam and Eve’s disobedience, we have all inherited a “sin nature” which separates us from God.
We would have to die physically and spiritually and be apart eternally from God in order to atone. However, God, in His great mercy and love, sent Jesus, true God and true man, into the world to rescue us from our “sin nature” and this separation by taking our “death” punishment. He rescued us by dying for us! He then sent His Holy Spirit to deposit into us the faith to believe this “Good News.” This faith that lives in us, and that He has freely distributed, saves us!
Because faith comes by teaching and hearing the Word of Christ, we seek to teach this truth to our little ones. They freely receive this saving gift of faith, as they hear about their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is nothing that we, ourselves, DO! It is God working the miracle of faith in us, as His words are spoken.
We believe that each child is a special gift from God, a unique creation, possessing his own God-given gifts and talents. Therefore, our program is designed to encompass the total child and promote learning and growth in the spiritual, cognitive, physical, emotional, and social areas of a child’s body, mind, and soul.
We believe that learning develops through doing and “experiencing,” rather than simple observation. Therefore, we seek to be developmentally appropriate in our activities so that each child can grow at his own rate of maturation, not necessarily related to his chronological age. We affirm that families are the greatest agents for nurturing the whole child and view Christian education to be the best tool that works hand-in-hand with the parents, not to shelter from the world, but to better prepare them for coping in the world.
