The purpose of Lafayette Christian School is to equip young people to live a Christian life of service in this world and to be transforming agents in the Kingdom of God.
It is our belief that God directly commands that children of Christian parents be trained in the fear of the Lord. The authority and
responsibility for this training of children resides in the community of Christians and with the parents in particular. Parents may,
however, seek cooperation of the Christian church and teachers who are competent to assist in carrying out God’s command.
‘These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children.
Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you
get up.” (Deuteronomy 6: 6,7)
The supreme standard of the Lafayette Christian School Society is the scripture of the Old and New Testaments, herein confessed to be the infallible Word of God, and interpreted in the ecumenical creeds and the historic Reformed confessions. (A summary copy of these confessions is available at the school.)
