Exploring Christian Education

Exploring Christian Education cover

Christian education, one of the key ministries of the church, looks to the Bible, to theology, to Christian history, and to Christian expe­rience for the content of its teaching. It has a heritage of Christian truth to receive, understand, and transmit. It is also responsible to nurture Christian faith in persons to whom it ministers. It is Christian education.
