Bible courses are a required element of our academically rigorous secondary program and continue the concepts taught in 小学，侧重于世界观. Summit Ministries’ worldviews curriculum explicitly informs instruction in Bible courses for grades 6, 8, 11和12. 七年级的学生主要学习旧约, 九年级的福音书, 还有十年级的护教学. 无论过程如何，FCS肯定了元叙事 圣经:1. 上帝创造了一切美好的事物. 创世之初，万物和谐. 2. At the Fall (Genesis 3), the whole created order fell into disharmony due to the disobedience of man. 3. In the person of Jesus Christ, God began the process of redemption and renewal. 4. In the end, God will restore all things through his Son Jesus Christ.
We believe the biblical metanarrative is manifested in four key relationships of creation. 1. 交通:神与人之间的关系. God created man for relationship with Himself; that relationship was broken because of sin; that relationship is restored through Jesus Christ. 2. Image-bearers: Man was created as whole and healthy being, as an image-bearer of God; sin brought disharmony and conflict into the life and heart of man. Redemption through Jesus Christ begins the healing process within man. 3. Servanthood: God created man for harmonious and loving relationships with other people; sin is the cause of disharmony and discord among people; part of restoring mission of Jesus Christ is to bring people back into harmonious relationship with one another. 4. Stewardship: God placed the whole created order under the rule and care of His image-bearers (Genesis 1); with the Fall, the relationship between man and the rest of the created order was marred; In Jesus Christ, God continues to call His image-bearers to work to preserve and protect the created order.
