Philosophy of Education

The CCS educational leadership believes that each and every student is created in the image of God.  Each person is conceived as a sinner due to Adam’s original sin.  There is a need to restore fellowship with God and then to equip each individual to fulfill the mandate to spread the good news and to serve.  As such, we believe education serves the purpose of acquainting the student with truth.  As Paul said, “All truth is in fact resident in the Word of God, which is useful for correction, rebuke and instruction”.

We believe education is the process whereby a student comes to wisdom by understanding truth.  In other words, as a student is confronted with truth, he grapples with it and makes decisions based on that truth.

Beyond that, we adhere to the traditional faith that states,  God is the Father, Son and Spirit.  The Son was sent by the Father to redeem mankind from the consequences of sin and to provide the hope of eternal life.  The Spirit has been sent as God’s Comforter and Enlightener to indwell the believer and to direct his steps.  The Word of God, as expressed in the scriptures, is indispensable in the daily life of a Christian.  We believe that we should be in fellowship with one another to effectively walk out our faith.
