The educational philosophy of First Baptist Academy is based on a God-centered view of truth and man as presented in the Bible. Since God created and sustains all things through His Son Jesus Christ the universe and all life are dynamically related to God and have the purpose of glorifying Him. This is particularly true of man who was made in Gods image different in kind from all other creatures with the unique capacity to know and respond to God personally and voluntarily. Because man is a sinner by nature and choice however man cannot in this condition know or honor God in life. Man can do this only by being born again through receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and thus be enabled to do Gods will which is the ultimate purpose of life.
The entire process of Christian education is seen as a means used by the Holy Spirit to bring the student into fellowship with God to develop in the student the mind of Christ and to train him/her in godly living so that the student can fulfill Gods total purpose for this life personally and vocationally. The student must:Be taught the Bible so he/she can understand Gods nature and role as well as his/her own. Develop as a whole person-spiritually mentally physically and socially. Develop a biblical worldview by learning to see all truth as Gods truth and to integrate it with and interpret it by Gods Word. Be educated as an individual with his/her own unique abilities and personality who must learn to live and work with others at home in the church and in a changing secular society. Be reared by a parent who models the Christian faith. Be taught by and interact with teacher models who are themselves growing Christians have a biblical perspective on life and who are doctrinally and spiritually compatible with First Baptist Church of Naples.
The authority for such an education comes both from Gods command that children be taught to love God and place Him first in their lives and from the fact that parents are responsible for the total education and training of their children. At the parents request the Christian school (First Baptist Academy) along with the Church (First Baptist Church of Naples and other biblical churches) become partners in giving this education.
