Christianity offers real answers to life’s difficult questions of meaning and purpose. The fact that Christ is both Creator and Redeemer has tremendous implication for soteriology, epistemology, morality, which are essential components to any philosophy of education.
God’s general revelation in nature provides a basis for several disciplines such as the field of science. However, such general revelation is limited in revealing the character of God, something which is found only in the special revelation of the Word. The divine authority of the special revelation of the Word taught in our curriculum is the distinguishing marks of Orthodox Christian Educational Institution.
Christian truth is not only to be learned; it is to be lived. The student of Scripture needs both a keen mind and a willing heart. Education must not only inform the mind but direct the life. A correct teaching of special revelation leads to application in personal life not just the scholastic pursuits of academia.
