Image of God
So, God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female he created them.” – Genesis 1:27
We must start here. One of the fundamental differences at chariots of mercy is that we believe children are created in the image of God. This means they are valuable not for what they can do, but for who (and whose) they are. This also means they have eternal significance.
Word of God
The Bible has much to say about wise men and foolish men. They both build houses on different foundations and these houses look remarkably similar until the wind begins blowing. The harder the wind blows, the more obvious the foundations become. At chariots of mercy foundation, we believe that the Bible is the infallible Word of God and all 800 “houses” that we are building will be built on that One True Foundation.
By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.” – Proverbs 24:3-4
God has a beautiful plan for males and females. The Biblical male/female relationship is one of God’s most purposeful objectives. At chariots of mercy foundation, we train our young men and women to treat the opposite sex with respect and dignity. Biblical relationships can only be present if we believe that all people are made in the image of God and that the Word of God is the One True Foundation.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the Name of the Lord our God.” – Psalm 20:7
One of the most difficult parts of the Christian life is trust. The temptation is to “do it on our own.” After all, we can see the iron chariots and feel the horses’ breath. We teach every student that God has called him or her to trust and faithfulness no matter what the circumstance.
Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” – Proverbs 22:6
This is a direct promise from God to parents and families. One of the greatest distinctiveof chariots of mercy foundation is our family involvement. Students’ families are always involved. We want them to know the teachers, the students, and the administration. We exist to assist and enhance homes.
Chariot of mercy foundation is not tied to any church or denomination. We stand on the critical doctrinal points in our statement of faith and allow for differing views beyond that statement. We exist to advance the kingdom of God through assisting families in the Godly academic training of their children.
Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” – Mark 10:43-45
Jesus Christ came to serve. He lived a humble life and died a martyr’s death. He constantly put others before Himself. At Chariot of mercy foundation, we are committed to train our students to be like Christ through serving others. We believe this is an integral part of our education process. We provide support and encouragement for the poor, sick, orphaned, and elderly. All of these activities are more than moral duties. They are reflections of God’s love.
You turn things upside down, as if the potter were thought to be like the clay! Shall what be formed say to him who formed it, ‘He did not make me’? Can the pot say to the potter ‘He knows nothing’?” – Isaiah 29:16
It seems almost humorous…the creation elevating its own wisdom to the level of the Creator or even denying the Creator’s existence. Humanism (man is god) stands in direct contrast to Christianity (God is God). Christianity has been such an integral part of the history and development of civilization that anything other than an education centered on the person of Jesus Christ fails at what it purports to be.
Chariot of mercy foundationholds that all truth is God’s truth. We seek to integrate all subjects with historical Christianity and the teachings of the Scriptures in ways that are natural and not contrived. Our intent is to assist families by providing a clear model of the Biblical Christian life and worldview through our staff and to encourage every child to develop a genuine and meaningful relationship with God through the person of Jesus Christ.
Wisdom is supreme; therefore, get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.” – Proverbs 4:7
Paul tells us in I Corinthians 8 that knowledge by itself “puffs up.” It seeks to elevate man and bring down God. Knowledge alone will never bring morality to any culture or society. That can only be accomplished through the power of Jesus Christ. If you add the fear of the Lord to knowledge, the result is wisdom.
Our school believes that the fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom. Wisdom is the ability to make decisions as God Himself would make them. True wisdom comes from no man, but from the mind of God. At any other foundation is destined for failure.
