God Reveals Himself in Scripture

Biblical understanding is foundational to every area of the curriculum.  For example, understanding that God created order from chaos in Genesis 1 tells us that God values order.  This truth is the foundation of all mathematics and scientific study.  A Christian school should not divide the curriculum into the secular and the spiritual.  We hold that all truth is God’s truth (Proverbs 3: 19-20).  We do not simply seek to add on a Bible verse at the end of a lesson.  True integration is the teaching of all truth from a Biblical perspective, integrating into each subject the nature and character of God.  Through scripture we learn how God is revealed in the person of Christ.  This means that each teacher has a personal responsibility to be an imitator of Christ and to model an authentic Christian life before the students.
