English Abstract

The construction of theology is extremely important in any field of Christian faith. Christianity has been in China for more than 200 years. At the end of the first 20 years of the 21st century, we can see the fruitful development of all aspects of Chinese theology, except Chinese Christian education theology. In fact, no book has been published in this area. Construction of the Christian education theology is inevitable. This paper compares the three approaches of Western Christian education theology, and then from the unique situation of the Chinese church, with the understanding of the Chinese educational concept, through the methodology of Practical Theology, put forward an "Integrated Chinese Christian Education Theology" approach, they are: (1) the integration of Discipleship and Educational concept, (2) the integration of Ecclesiology and Chinese culture, (3) the integration of "theology and theory" and Praxis, and (4) the integration of "Purpose and Goal" and the educational effect.
