We purpose to provide instruction in God’s Word and conventional instruction that meets or exceeds state standards for all who desire a Biblical foundation. To serve students who historically have been defined at risk and those underserved in traditional systems of education.
Emmanuel Christian Academy philosophy is accordance to I Corinthians 8:6, “Yet for
us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live;
and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through
whom wend live. Colossians 1:16-17 “ For in him all things were created: things in
heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or
authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all
things, and in him all things hold together.”
The education process is dependent upon basic philosophy to provide the right viewpoint,
basic truths, and principles for interpreting the facts encountered in life and the study of
all subject matter. We believe that the concepts foundational to this truth are:
1. We here at Emmanuel Christian Academy believe that Christian education is a
guide to every aspect of life. “Train up a child in the way he should go, even
when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
2. The primary purpose of Emmanuel Christian Academy is by the power of the
Holy Spirit is to provide instruction in God’s Word and conventional instruction
to meet or exceed state standards for all who desire a Biblical foundation.
3. We believe that the most effective influences in a student’s life can be realized
when the church, home and school work together. We believe that each has an
immediate and direct influence on the developing student. Emmanuel Christian
Academy is an important ministry of the congregation in nurturing children in the
Christian faith and reaching out to bring others to Christ. We also consider
Emmanuel Christian Academy to be an extension of the home and also partners
with the parents.
4. We, fully trusting the power of God, have set ourselves to the task of teaching
children that in life we must seek a proper relationship with God. This teaching is
concerned not only with the counsels of God revealed in His Word, but also in the
counsels revealed in His world. We desire to teach that ALL truth is God’s truth,
and Jesus Christ is CENTRAL in all truth; again not simply in the Word, but in
history in geography, in music, in arts, and in the universe (John. 14:6).
