Man has been created in the image of God. It is the responsibility of redeemed man to continually seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit in discerning how he can become more nearly conformed to God’s pattern for him. He must also be equipped to enable others to reach the same goal.
The purpose of education, then, is to teach man to view himself and his world through eyes of God, and as a result to make him aware of his responsibility.
Man learns of these things through two sources, God’s truth to man as it has been revealed in His Word and God’s truth as it has been recorded and can be observed outside of His Word. It is the responsibility of God’s child to familiarize with God’s truth wherever it occurs, and to apply it to his life in such a way that God’s purpose can be fulfilled in him.
