Berean Bible Baptist Academy (BBBA) is dedicated to the belief that true wisdom can only begin with a clear understanding of the Bible. We believe that Biblical wisdom manifests in the knowledge and fear of the Lord which results in a hatred of sin and a love for truth and righteousness, as Proverbs 9:10 says, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” Since knowledge is factually the same for both the Christian and non-Christian alike, in order for one to gain wisdom as God desires us to have, we must recognize God as the supreme source of all knowledge and wisdom. We believe that as Creator of this universe, God, through His Word, has given us an instruction book with which to guide our lives. Deuteronomy 6:5-7 says, “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.”
We therefore accept His right to govern all the affairs of man including the education of those whom He has created. Because God instituted the local church, BBBA is a ministry of Berean Bible Baptist Church of Chula Vista. We are told in Proverbs 22:6 to “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” This biblical command can only be fulfilled through the combined efforts of the home, the local church, and the school.
Purpose of Christian Education
It is our desire and aim to help parents fulfill their legal and spiritual responsibility to train their children. Both the Word of God and the laws of the State of California are clear in making parents responsible for the education of their children.
Our goal is to mold a young person who demonstrates academic excellence, and displays the spiritual and social maturity to glorify God by:
- Offering a Christ centered program of education with high academic standards relating all subject matter to God’s Word;
- Teaching the fundamental elements of education and bring each of the students to the place where they can read with comprehension, compute accurately, spell correctly and write both legibly and intelligently.
- Helping parents direct according to biblical standards, the development of every student: spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially;
- Developing, where possible, each student’s talents in service for God within the local church.
