A school’s philosophy determines how it operates. Its philosophy includes its foundational concepts and guiding principles. A Christian education derives its foundational concepts and guiding principles from the Bible.
Fayetteville Christian School is based on the Biblical worldview with the traditional philosophy of education. The Bible tells of two educational institutions: the family and the church. The Lord has given parents the responsibility to train up their children (Pr. 22:6; Eph. 6:4; Dt. 6:7-8), and He has given His church the responsibility to teach His instructions (Mt. 28:19-20; Eph. 4:11-15). Operating under the auspices of the Mission Boulevard Baptist Church, FCS combines the efforts of parents and the church to provide a Christian education. Our competent Christian faculty helps parents provide their children academic instruction consistent with Christ-centered teaching received both in the home and the local church.
Fayetteville Christian School’s philosophy is based upon the Biblical view of God and humanity. We recognize that God is the loving, righteous, and just ruler of the universe and that mankind, although created in the image of God, has chosen to fall into sin. Through Jesus Christ’s death on the cross and His resurrection from the grave, God has provided the way for all of us to be reconciled to Him. The most important issues in life are that a person be reconciled to God through faith in Christ and that a person lives to bring others to Christ. This responsibility to lead others to Christ requires one to develop in Christian character and to promote the Biblical worldview. It causes one to strive to be a leader, standing against the pressures to do wrong, and leading others in doing what is right.
