At CHAM we see the Word of God as the final authority. We don’t see the Word as a theory, rather the source of Godly wisdom and instruction. It is the very Word of the living God. Without God and His Word, men only learn in part.
All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;
so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
In regard to childbirth, this area has only been learned in part. We first endeavor to teach the students to become and walk as disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. This includes being in the Word daily, and learning to hear that “still small voice”. By His spirit, God teaches us things that He wants us to know. While the students will be trained in both sciences and medical skills, it is crucial that students build their relationship with Christ and train their heart and spiritual ears to hear Him. The greatest things have been taught by the Holy Spirit, and always surpass a medical education. We say this humbly as it truly is a privilege to know Jesus and rest in His Word.
Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;
Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
We also know that the Word is true in regard to being transformed in the Lord. This transformation takes place both in the hand of God in each of our lives, but on our part it takes place as we take the time to renew our minds to the truth of the Word of God.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. NASB
We recognize God’s thoughts much more easily as we are in the Word. The Word of God is powerful. It changes us, and the things that the world, what the enemy puts on our hearts start dropping off. There is no entity out there that is more powerful than the Word of God. It is what God intended to use to change, heal, and transform our hearts. We can more easily recognize when God is speaking to us as our thoughts are lining up to His. We can recognize His prompting to do something, and when He is teaching us on principles our hearts are open to learn.
In the world that tries to intimidate Christian, our heart at CHAM is to stand fully on the Word. We teach these young women to walk as disciples and embrace the Word. We teach them to recognize that the Holy Spirit is their true teacher, and comforter; so rather than being intimidated as Christians, we believe, teach, and stand on the Word of God.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
