Home-Centered Christian Education

From: Volume III, Issue 2: Spring 1983 Pages 30-38


There are three important agencies to the Christian--the church, the Christian school, and the home. The thesis is that the church and the Christian school are only as strong as the Christian home. This article argues that the home is the central agency for education and the home is God's provision for building strong disciples. Deuteronomy 6:1-7 is analyzed as the biblical basis for this thesis. The article promotes a holistic view of Christian home education. The emphasis is on a growing Christian lifestyle, but practical ideas for implementation are also suggested. The article concludes that home-centered Christian education provides for stronger churches, Christian schools, and evangelistic outreach.
