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:
God is the Creator and Sustainer of all things, and the Source of all truth. God maintains control over His entire universe. True meanings and values can be ascertained only in the light of His person, purpose and work. Since all truth extends from God and the person of Jesus Christ, all Truth must be obtained from a Christ-centered position.
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 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. 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. 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).
