Statement of Philosophy

First United Methodist School and Child Care Center adopts the historic Christian view of life as presented in the Bible. Since God created and sustains everything through His Son, Jesus Christ, the world and life are God-centered and should glorify Him. Man, being a sinner by nature and choice, cannot glorify or know God apart from being regenerated through personal acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior by faith. The total process of education, therefore, should seek to restore the student to a position of true knowledge, righteousness, and holiness in Christ by relating the whole person to God Spiritually, intellectually, socially, and physically. God’s truth must be integrated into every area of school life. Such education is primarily the parents’ responsibility, and the school functions as an extension of the home in providing the education.

First United Methodist School & Child Care believes that all children are a gift from God, (Matthew 19:14) and are created in the image of God (Psalms 119:73; Col. 1:16). Therefore, our stewardship response is to provide a wholesome and Christian environment by nurturing the children through the teaching of Scriptures, by providing Christian role models, and by assisting them to develop intellectually, socially, emotionally, spiritually, and physically as Christians (Deut. 6:4-9). Our church seeks to treat each student as a special child of God, encouraging mutual respect.


Welcome to First UMC Kissimmee.  I hope you are welcomed as you worship with us.  We are a safe place to question, learn, and grow.  I welcome your questions about life and church.  If you would like to discuss theology with me I welcome your thoughts.
