Kissimmee Christian School Philosophy

North Kissimmee Christian School is a vibrant ministry of North Kissimmee Baptist Church and is governed by this autonomous church. North Kissimmee Baptist Church is a fundamental, soul-winning church which unashamedly believes in the infallibility of the Bible and the historic, fundamental doctrines of the Baptist faith. North Kissimmee Christian School participates in the Florida Association of Christian Schools International.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE AND GOALS

The purpose of Christian education is to assist parents in training their children to be Christ-like. This teaching, nurturing and admonishing process begins in the home and continues throughout life. The Christian school, in addition to the home and the church, is the place where the process of Chritian education takes place.

The foundation of Christian education is the Word of God. From God's Word , the philosophy of Christian education is developed. The goal of Christian education at North Kissimmee Christian School shall be to:

1. present each person “perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (II Timothy 3:17)
2. help each person to “love the Lord thy God with all thine heart and with all thy soul and with all thy might.” (Deut. 6:5)

The Christian school has been established to allow parents to obey God's command, to give their children a Christian education and at the same time, obey the law of the land. Christian education is first and foremost the responsibility of the Christian home (Duet. 6:7) North Kissimmee Christian endeavors to assist the home in this process, rather than substitute for what is not being done in the home.

Students may be refused enrollment in the school when the administration believes that this home-school relationship is not in harmony with this stated purpose. Another institution with God-given responsibility for education is the church. Jesus tells his disciples in Matthew 28 to “go and disciple all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son, and the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all thins whatsoever I have commanded you.”

North Kissimmee Christian School is an educational ministry of North Kissimmee Baptist Church. We request that our parents cooperate with us in the educational and scripture goals, which we seek to achieve. North Kissimmee Christian School, then, acts in cooperation with the home and the church to produce Christ-likeness in its students; however, the ultimate responsibility for Christian education of their children remains with the parents.
