Statement of Faith
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is part of the triune God consisting of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; equal in nature, separate in identity, unique in duty. We believe Jesus came to mankind (leaving His glory in heaven), being conceived of the Holy Spirit, born unto a virgin, dwelt among us and lived a sinless life. He was crucified on the cross, buried three days, rose from the dead, stood resurrected before many, and upon completing the work of the Father, He ascended to heaven where He is serving now at the right side of God.
We believe Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation and eternal life. Only by acknowledging He is the Son of God and believing in Him, can we have hope for eternal life. Jesus was sent to sacrifice His life upon the cross in atonement for the sins of mankind. He conquered death so that we may live. He is risen and coming again! By His blood and death, those who believe are justified, and sanctified, before God. His only begotten Son took a substitutionary role, atoning for our sins so that we may have eternal life in Him. Christ is the Messiah of the Old Testament, bringing us the New Covenant in the New Testament.
We believe that the Word of God is fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, completely inerrant in the original manuscripts, and meant to bring us God’s revelation as acknowledged by Jesus Christ. We believe we are saved by grace, through faith, in the one and only Savior, Jesus Christ. We believe that water baptism is an outward confession of an inward sign of faith, publically declaring and acknowledging Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. And, each believer upon conversion to Christ experiences baptism of the Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus welcomes all those who seek Him and choose to follow His ways
PHILOSOPHY AND MISSION STATEMENT
The philosophy and mission of CCA shall be to address the needs of the whole student spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, and physically by providing an education based on biblical authority, truth, and moral values. Realizing there is a spiritual battle going on for the very souls of our students, we desire to teach of the great love God has for them and the relationship they can have with Him through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. We seek to teach the students that through reading the Bible and praying to God through Jesus, that they can receive guidance for their lives and true peace. We desire to teach our students that obedience to God and His laws will bring order, morality, fulfillment, and true happiness to their lives. In turn, they will desire to serve others and look forward to one day spending eternity with Him. We are a Christ-following, faith-based, private educational academy, preschool and daycare.
“…a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation”…Isaiah 28:16
The “cornerstone” is the most important and pivotal piece in a solid foundation. Our desire is that every person – large and small, adult and child – would place their lives in Christ’s hands and make Him the foundation…the cornerstone, of their lives. Upon doing that, Ephesians 2:20 says, “With Christ Jesus Himself as the chief cornerstone, in Him the whole building is joined together.” Our hope is that every person would be joined together, hand in hand, serving God and loving others in ways that are glorifying to Him.
