“Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord” – Psalms 127:3
Middletown Christian Schools is committed to serve Christian families in the responsibility to train and educate their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. The education of children is the prerogative of the parents and not of the state. As a ministry of Grace Baptist Church, Middletown Christian Schools serves as an extension of the Christian home in reinforcing the Biblical teachings of the home and the church. The doctrinal position of Middletown Christian Schools is that of its parent organization Grace Baptist Church. A copy of our Statement of Faith is available from the school or church office.
We are the product of what we think, “For as a man thinketh in his heart so is he.” (Proverbs23:7). Christian education has a separate and distinct philosophy. This philosophy is found in and based on the Bible. The Bible, God’s Word, is the foundation of Christian education. Education is either Christ-centered (based on the principles of the Bible) or it is humanistic (based on the thoughts of man). It cannot be both! Christian education rests upon the recognition that all truth is of God (John 17:17). No concept can be true that conflicts with the statements of Scripture. Therefore, the Bible is the center of Middletown Christian Schools’ curriculum. It is not only the most important subject matter, but also the source of the principles determining the other subject matters. The presentation of Biblical truth is not confined to a single Bible class, but is integrated throughout the teaching of all subjects.
