ABOUT NEW LIFE ACADEMY
The purpose of New Life Academy is to glorify God in making disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ (I Corinthians 10:31; Matthew 28:19-20). This purpose is realized through the institution of Christ’s local church. Jesus said that He would edify His assembly and that the gates of hell would not prevail against it (Matthew 16:18). Since the Lord Jesus gave the Great Commission to the local church, it alone has the authority and responsibility for making disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18-20). No parents will truly succeed at training their children outside of a Christ-honoring church.
Our role as a school in child training is to assist parents in child training. God gave the responsibility of child training primarily to parents (Ephesians 6:4). Thus, parents take the lead role in teaching with NLA supporting the home. The school’s authority does not exceed the authority of the parents. The Bible alone sufficiently directs a parent to train his child, and our school program seeks to mirror what the Bible teaches.
God’s way includes training in wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man (Luke 2:52). Wisdom is the intellectual realm, including obedience (Proverbs 9:10); stature is the physical realm, including character (Ephesians 4:13); favor with God is the spiritual realm, including doctrine (II Timothy 3:16); and favor with man is the social realm, including attitude (I Samuel 2:26). New Life Academy teaches children in all four of these areas.
NLA also provides each student with a true perspective of his life, world, and universe, as revealed in the Holy Scriptures, the Bible. It instills in each student, with the parents’ cooperation along with a Bible-believing and-practicing church, the moral strength, spiritual insight, and academic integrity to live his life as a responsible citizen and effective Christian.
