"New Hope Christian Schools is primarily a religious and secondarily an educational institution. The School's view of the nature of the student, truth,
education, and the role of the teacher is integral to the School's statement of philosophy.
1. The Nature of the Student - The student is created by God in His image to have fellowship with Him, but is born in sin and separated from God. The student may be reconciled to God through faith in Jesus Christ and enabled by grace to learn and grow in truth. Each individual has gifts and abilities that need to be developed for God's own purpose. (Gen. 1:26-27; Psa. 51:5; Rom. 5:12; Eph. 2: 8-10)
2. The Nature of Truth - All truth is of God and no truth exists apart from Him. The Bible is the God-given, unchanging standard by which all things are measured. Apart from spiritual regeneration, the student cannot fully know and understand truth. (Psa. 19:7-11; I Cor. 2:9-12) 3. The Nature of Christian Education:
It is a process of presenting subject matter in a way that shows complete union with all of God's truth. It is a living demonstration of Biblical principles on the part of all personnel involved in the process. It has as its goal, applying the meaning and purpose found in Jesus Christ to all of life.
4. The Role of the Teacher - The teacher is expected to exhibit in fullest possible measure the fruit of the Spirit. The teacher is responsible to motivate each
student according to his or her ability. The teacher should foster student effort and encourage the application of spiritual motives for learning. (Luke 6:40)"
