Theology

The Theology program at Pacifica will expose students to the Christian faith and the Scriptures, and through them to the life and redemptive work of Jesus Christ. The Bible is central to the Pacifica curriculum. The major themes from the Bible will help provide a framework and a backdrop that students will use as they analyze history, English, math, the arts, science, physical education, and foreign languages. The school’s task  is to impart biblical knowledge through rigorous study, engage students in open and intelligent dialogue about the claims of the church, and to equip students for lives of character and service through the application of these truths. This learning and dialogue will encompass the great breadth of perspectives in the Christian faith. When students leave our school, we want them to understand the major tenets of the Christian faith and their influence on thought throughout history.
