“You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your sound and all your mind.” - Matthew 22:37
Biblical truth is the strongest foundation for intellectual achievement; any other foundation is incomplete and will not hold up. With the significant shift in educational philosophy away from biblical truth, knowledge of and the love for God has been replaced with a soft approach to self-esteem, dogmatic humanistic bias in science and revisionist history. Ironically, the current educational focus on human capacity and superiority has resulted in a growing devaluation of human life.
While self-esteem and an appreciation of man’s capacity for growth are certainly important, we know directly from scripture that God-esteem must come first before we are able to grow in wisdom. Therefore, everything we do at FACS begins with the foundation of biblical truth.
Truth is our starting point for:
Understanding the created world in our scientific disciplines
Reasoning in computational and higher order mathematics
Utilizing factual history to perceive the causes and the likely impact of current events and cultural trends
Recognizing the power of story in literature
Glorifying God with talents in the fine arts
Maximizing athletic gifts and abilities
Compassion is a byproduct of our God-focused vision, seen in the way students care for one another, for their classmates, for their FACS family, and for others in need in the Mid-South area. The ultimate outcome of this vision is seen in our graduates as they go on to honor God in college and career, build strong families and better their communities.
