Welcome to the Chisago Lakes Baptist School Web site!
Our philosophy of education is based on the following:
Wisdom and knowledge comes from God, therefore man’s education is complete only when God and His Word are the center of all learning (Proverbs 1:7). In education we are concerned with the total person: his/her intellectual, spiritual, physical and social being. We believe the needs of the total person can only be met as approached from a Christian or Biblical philosophy.
Created by God and in His image, he/she is of inestimable worth, possessing an eternal soul that shall either inherit everlasting life or everlasting damnation.
Because of sin, he/she is unable to reach God. His/her nature is totally depraved and foolishness is bound in his/her heart (Proverbs 22:15).
Faith in Jesus Christ is the only way of establishing a right relationship with God. Reality in life’s purposes and values can be ascertained in and through Christ alone.
God is the source of all wisdom and He has revealed Himself specifically in the Bible – thus God’s Word is the basis of all our studies and should be correlated with all experiences that the child has under the auspices of the school.
Christian education should aspire to train a child in such a way that he/she will have a sound, practical working knowledge of the Word of God and be able to evaluate every circumstance of life from a Christian viewpoint.
The home and church being ordained of God and being charged with the responsibility of training and teaching (Deut. 6:6) should work together with the Christian school in promoting the student’s growth.
The teacher in the Christian school must of necessity give evidence of knowing Christ as personal Savior.
He/she must be wholly committed to following and obeying Christ, thus being wholly committed to a life of service to man for Christ’s sake.
He/she should possess academic and professional learning necessary to perform his/her task.
My prayer is that as you look at our website, you will see a difference in our school. As you read and pray, may God grant wisdom. If we can be a help in any way, or would like a tour of our school, please do not hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (651) 257-4587. We will count it a privilege to serve you.
Sincerely in Christ,
Michael Elliott, Administrator
