Biblical Focus

First Baptist Christian School is a part of the total ministry of First Baptist Church of Elyria, Ohio. Recognizing that all truth is God’s truth, the school accepts without apology the Word of God as the foundation for all instruction and learning. The school is open to families of the community who want to have their children trained where Biblical truth is integrated with every area of the curriculum. Jesus Christ is preeminent in every aspect of school life, and students are encouraged to make lifelong commitments to Him and to Christian principles of living. Our school emphasizes love for our country, loyalty to the church, and submission to all God-given authority. Click here to view our statement of faith.

A Christian educational philosophy

The educational program and the methods of instruction of First Baptist Christian School are dependent on a Biblical philosophy to provide the viewpoint, general background truth, and principles for interpreting the facts encountered in the study of any subject.

We believe that the concepts of a Christian educational philosophy are these:

  1. God is the Creator and Sustainer of all things and the Source of all truth.
  2. God maintains control over His entire universe.
  3. Because of sin, man tends to omit God and thus fails to relate himself and his knowledge to God, who is the Source of all wisdom.
  4. Regeneration is by faith in Jesus Christ. True meanings and values can be ascertained only in the light of His Person, purpose and work.
  5. God has revealed Himself in a general way in His world and universe and in a specific way in the Bible.
  6. The home, the church, and the school should complement each other, promoting the student's spiritual, academic, social, and physical growth.
  7. The teacher stands in place of the parent while the student is in the classroom.
  8. God has given differing abilities to each student. It is the teacher's responsibility to challenge each child according to his ability and to seek to teach him at his academic level.
  9. The Christian is not to be conformed to the world but must recognize his responsibility and his role in life in our democratic society.
  10. The student's home, church, and school experience and training should be a preparation for a life of fellowship with God and service to man.
  11. The prayer of a righteous person has a powerful effect.
