Bible Philosophy

Yorktown Christian Academy's Bible Department values the pursuit of wisdom based on the intentional and prayerfully guided study of God's Word.  The Bible states in II Timothy 3:16, "All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness in conformity to God's will in thought, purpose, and action."

The Bible Department of Yorktown Christian Academy embraces the philosophy that God honors His Word (Proverbs 22:6) and therefore strives to integrate biblical principles in all subject areas in order to draw students to a close personal relationship with Jesus Christ and equip them to lead lives that will glorify Him.  Each Bible objective is designed to continue the process of instructing students in righteousness so that they are given opportunities to become motivated and to mature toward a lifelong study of the Word of God (Matthew 5:16).

The Word of God is the center of the Bible curriculum at Yorktown Christian Academy.  Therefore, it is the conviction of the Bible Department that memorization of God's Word (Psalm 119:11) is vital in leading a student to the ultimate goal, the application of the Bible to life  - "Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."  (Psalm 119:105)
