When Family Christian Academy was founded in 2007 with only 16 students, the lion was chosen as our school's mascot, due to its symbolism of bravery, valor and strength. However, the most important reason it was chosen is because the lion is one of the most notable Christian symbols of Christ.
We believe that it is the responsibility of the school to assist families in training children to be Christ-like. There are several key essentials upon which we base the philosophies of our Biblical foundation at Family Christian Academy.
I. God: There is only one, true, living supernatural spirit who created all in the natural universe. He has the highest intelligence, power and knowledge that is not limited by time nor space. The Bible describes Him as God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with different purposes and attributes, but the same being.
II. Salvation: God offers people the chance to be saved from a hopeless fate because of our sin, that separated us from God. Salvation is available to anyone who hears the Good News about Jesus Christ and believes that He truly was and is God's Son, who died and rose again, on our behalf. God desires that all people recognize their sinfulness, turn from it, and trust Him to be saved. He promises that if we do so, that it is like we are born again spiritually into God's everlasting family. We believe that all people are saved by grace, through faith.
III. Baptism: We believe that Jesus commands all of His followers in scripture to participate in baptism, as an act of obedience. We believe in baptism as complete immersion in water, symbolizing the Christian's death to sin and resurrection as a new creation. Baptism is not necessary for salvation but an outward sign of a spiritual change.
IV. Evangelism: We believe that it is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ to make disciples of all nations, by witnessing to others. We believe that the two greatest commandments that God gave were to love the Lord your God with all of your heart and love your neighbor as yourself.
To educate and influence the lives of children by instilling and incorporating Biblical values with academic standards. We strive to prepare students for a strong future by demonstrating family values that will allow them to become successful members of the society in which they live.
