PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION
SFWBC is dedicated to preparing Christian men and women for Christian living and the ministry. The college operates under a Biblical philosophy of education which is Christ-centered, founded in the truth of a triune personal God, revealed through creation, the person and work of His Son, Jesus Christ, and the inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God. As a Christian educational institution, SFWBC is committed to providing an educational opportunity where the Christian world view is emphasized as both a basis for thinking and a pattern for living. The college is committed to developing believers to maturity in Christ.
SFWBC holds to the principle that the teaching learning process involves the whole person. This includes developing the students’ knowledge, values, and skills that will enable them to fulfill God’s will for their lives. In light of this SFWBC recognizes the necessity of a faculty consisting of regenerated individuals who are in close communion with God and a student body intent on a devotion to the Lord.
