Philosophy of a Christian Education

Baptist Regional School, a ministry of the Haddon Heights Baptist Church, operates from a Christ centered perspective of education. This means that our total program is developed from the Biblical point of view. All things are taught in the light of God’s Word for it is our belief that God is truth (John 14:6), that His Word is truth (II Timothy 2:15), and that we are to worship Him in truth (John 4:24). We believe that truth, in all areas of life and learning is of God and that to be properly educated this must be recognized.

It is our belief that in order to teach from a Christian viewpoint, faculty, administrators and staff members must know God personally through salvation in Jesus Christ and have a daily walk that evidences fellowship with God.

High School Art-2

It is our belief that children are an heritage of the Lord (Psalm 126:3) and that God has commanded Christian parents to train their children according to the Word of God (Proverbs 22:6, Ephesians 6:4). We believe that the family unit is ordained of God, thus the Christian school becomes an extension of the home and church. Therefore, Baptist Regional School is operated basically to assist Christian families in the training of their children, but with the realization that they too need salvation and if unsaved, need to be brought to our Savior.

We believe in training the whole child, which includes the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual areas. The child should be educated that he might have knowledge, understanding, and wisdom to become an effective tool for God in society. We believe that it is much more important to teach from the context of “how to live” than “how to make a living” (Matthew 6:31-33).

It is within this framework that the educational process will take place at Baptist Regional School. The Word of God will always be the focal point of the total program.
