The purpose of Christian education is the directing of the process of human development toward God's objective for man: godliness of character and action. It bends its efforts to the end "that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works" (II Tim. 3:17).
Dynamic Works Christian Academy (DWCA) must point students to the original of this image, God Himself. Students come to know God by studying His revelation of Himself in His Word and in His works. Of these, the more fully revealing of God is His Word; and, therefore, the Bible is the center of the DWCA school curriculum.
The Bible is not only the most important subject matter but also the source of the principles determining the other subject matters and the way in which they are taught. The presentation of Biblical truth is thus not confined to a single segment of the curriculum-the study of the Bible--but diffused throughout the teaching of all subjects. Our teacher’s knowledge of the Scriptures controls their selection and interpretation of materials and determines his whole perspective on his subject matter. The Scriptures possess this privileged status in the curriculum, for they are the primary means of conveying the knowledge of God.
DWCA objective is to teach students in following God they imitate both His nature and His works. The imitation of God's nature results in holiness of character. God commands His people to imitate His holiness: "Be ye holy; for I am holy" (I Pet. 1:16). The fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23) is the expression of the holiness of God in the believer's character.
The work of DWCA is an extension of the Christian home and the church. Its purpose, therefore, is the development of the student in the image of God. This purpose determines both the content and the means of instruction.
DWCA is committed to the spiritual development of its students and seeing them mature in the word and deed. This development is through missions, service and classroom instruction and special events. DWCA necessitates a continual emphasis upon the goal of service and a provision in the curriculum for instruction in skills and disciplines that equip students for service. Academic subjects--whether in the humanities or in the natural sciences, whether general or strictly vocational--are studied not as ends in themselves but as means of improving our students as a servant of God. Such instruction includes not only mental but also physical culture: training in the proper care of the vehicle with which God has provided man to serve Him. Our students learns that bodies must not be abused or neglected but developed and disciplined for the service of God and presented to Him for His use and His glory (Rom. 12:1-2; I Cor. 6:20). In the Scriptures God has commanded two institutions to educate: the home and the church. As an extension of either or both of these institutions, DWCA has a Biblical mandate to educate.
DWCA will bring students into harmony with God’s order of life and help each student recognize their God- given identity.
