The objective in building a private Christian school is to obey the Scriptural imperatives found in Deuteronomy 6:5-7a:
“And thou shalt love the Lord thy God, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I shall command thee this day, shall be in thine heart; and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children.”
Teaching is training. Training for life must include training for eternity.
A Christian school is an extension of the Christian home in training young people for time and eternity. The school staff works closely with parents to train the whole child.
Attendance at Maranatha Baptist Christian School is a privilege and not a right. The goals of Maranatha Baptist Christian School are not to reform but to train Christian youth of every ability in the highest principles of Christian leadership, self-discipline, individual responsibility, personal integrity, and good citizenship. The school stands without apology for the old-time Gospel and the highest standards of morality and Christian Behavior.
Our objective is to first teach a child how to live. And second, how to make a living. We major on Bible Education. Without the Bible as a guide, no school will last.
