Philosophy

The NHCF philosophy of W.I.S.E to Win, Instruct, Send and Encourage will be the Spiritual philosophy of NHCS. The NHCS philosophy of Christian education is based on the truth that God’s Word is the standard for all truth, and that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant and authoritative Word of God. God has created and sustains all things. Therefore, the universe and man were created by God to glorify Him. Because of the sin nature, man cannot, through his own efforts, know or glorify God. It is only by accepting God’s free gift that man receives salvation through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.

All policies of the school, philosophies of subjects, curriculum materials and teaching methods shall conform to our philosophy of Christian education. The Bible is the foundation and motivating force for all curriculums. Our primary goals and objectives include:

• To love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul and mind (Matt. 22:37)
• To glorify God in all that we do (1 Cor. 10:31)
• To promote the maturity of our students in doctrine and practice (Eph. 6:4; Col. 1:28-29)
• To train our students in Christian service and ministry (2 Tim. 2:2)

The school is an extension of the family and also an extension of the church. In this capacity, we will promote this relationship of family, church, school and members of the body of Christ.

We believe that our priorities and the priorities we teach should be in the following order: Commitment to 1. Christ 2. Family 3. School

Our belief is that God is eternally sovereign. We believe we have been created in God’s image and the Bible gives us the moral principles to live by. We strive to meet all the needs of the student – physical, mental and spiritual.
