Why Christian Education?
The purpose of a Christian school education is "to present to our children, as clearly as possible, the truth about God, about life and living, about our world and everything in it, and to present the Word of God as the authoritative source upon which to build a life that has purpose and meaning". (Paul Kienel) At Newell Christian School the truths from the Bible permeate everything being taught. The students are taught to use the Bible to evaluate all of life and are challenged to see the necessity of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Newell Christian School does not exist to shelter students from the world. Rather, it is a place where students develop their God-given potential to enable them to make an impact for Christ in every walk of life.
