The first component is the home. The
family is the first institution to be ordained by God, and God has given the
ultimate responsibility of educating children to the parents, not to the
church, not the government, not even the school. His Word gives parents the
guidance needed for successfully completing this daunting responsibility.
Parents are accountable to God to do everything possible to guide their
children to accept Christ as their Savior, to develop a Biblical belief system
and world-view to guide them in their life decisions, and to fully surrender to
God's will for their lives.
The second necessary component is the church. The New Testament church is also ordained of God, for the proclamation of the gospel and the building up of the saints. For a child, regular attendance in church is essential to Christian growth and the support of what is being taught at home and, hopefully, at his or her school.
The final component is the school, specifically Christian education. Neither public nor private, nor even Christian schools, are mentioned in Scripture. Therefore, our calling and purpose, given today's societal structure, is to assist parents in their assignment of educating their child, with the ultimate goal being successful in life - in God's eyes. The school can fulfill its calling in Kingdom Education by hiring loving and qualified Christian educators, teaching academics from a Biblical perspective, having students take daily Bible classes, praying in our classroom, having weekly chapel services, and providing a Christ-centered environment where young boys and girls can thrive in the personal expression of their faith. Everything the school does should be done with Kingdom Education in mind. That is the goal of CFCA - to come along side parents in raising and instructing the next generation for Christ. It only takes one generation to change a nation.
