Christian Formation and Discipleship

From: Volume IV, Issue 1: Fall 1983 Pages 50-54

Abstract

A sound Christian education philosophy will enable the evangelical church to guide believers through the many crosscurrents of change impacting on them today. Formation principles are needed to guide spiritual development. These are critical from infancy through late adulthood and can be communicated through creative options in both formal and informal settings. In order to have a clear strategy, the following components must be clarified: (1) The educational philosophies influencing one's Christian education approach; (2) the importance of interfacing between general education and Christian education; (3) biblical and theological principles at the root of, and integrated throughout, the process of Christian formation and discipleship; and (4) praxis as the ethical bridge between theory and practice.
