What is Logos Academy?
Logos Academy provides rigorous courses alongside intentional and disciplined worship. We seek to form both mind and heart, both body and soul, to the greater glory of God. Learn more about our current programs at the Logos Academy website.
Why should study be paired with worship?
The benefits here work both ways. Worship benefits study, and study benefits worship. Worship benefits study by helping us to situate all learning in relation to God, the source of all truth. It also calms our minds, removes distractions, heightens focus, and gives purpose to our learning. Study benefits worship by helping us to understand God and love him, as commanded, with all our mind. It is also enlightens and strengthens us as we seek to fulfill God’s commandments.
Why should the church be involved in education?
From its beginning, the church has pursued education as a central feature of its mission. At the same time that he commissioned the apostles to “make disciples of all nations,” he also commanded them to “teach...all that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20). Thus, the Jerusalem church was committed to “the apostle’s teaching” (Acts 2:42). Now more than ever, we need Christians with a deep knowledge of the faith, whose understanding is formed and expressed through worship to the glory of God. Yet in our day, much of the academy is no longer committed to formation in or expression of the Christian faith. Logos Academy constitutes a return to the ancient practice of intentional theological and spiritual formation inside the local church.
“The end then of learning is to repair the ruins of our first parents by regaining to know God aright, and out of that knowledge to love him, to imitate him, to be like him, as we may the nearest by possessing our souls of true virtue, which being united to the heavenly grace of faith makes up the highest perfection.” - John Milton, from “Of Education”
