Doctrinal Statement of Faith

It is the mission of Western Christian Academy to be a Christ-centered ministry dedicated to assisting the church and families through biblical education to become a Godly influence in the world. Character development and academic excellence are core values we aim to instill in each student with biblical worldview individualized curriculum. Western Christian Academy adheres to the historical truths of biblical orthodoxy and identifies our Statement of Faith as our foundation.

(Proverbs 5:18-19; Song of Songs 4:10, 5:16, 7:8-9). (Malachi 2:14-16; Matthew 19:4-6; Ephesians 5:31-32)

This design was marred by sin which twisted God’s purpose and began to promote sex for pleasure without the unique monogamous covenantal marriage commitment that the Bible requires in love, God has established distinct roles and responsibilities for women and men. We affirm the Bible’s teaching on biblical gender roles, which teaches men and women are equal in value but different in their functions within the home and the church. We also affirm that the opinions, ideas, and proposals of men and women are of equal value and should be considered under the instruction of the Scripture and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

(Micah 6:8 Galatians 3:28; Colossians 3:11)

While the term “race” is often used as a social construct to denote a person’s cultural background coupled with other physiological characteristics (such as skin color), the Bible consistently employs the term ethnos (Gr. ἔθνος; cf. “ethnic” and “ethnicity”) to describe such distinctives. In the clearest terms, Western Christian Academy emphatically and unequivocally denounces all forms of ethnic supremacy, racism/racialization, ethnic division, and ethnic prejudice (i.e. what James 2:1-13 describes as personal favoritism, making distinctions, and partiality) because it portrays a false image of God’s Tri-unity, violates the two Great Commandments (Matt 22:36-40), and denigrates His good work of creation. The Christian cannot and must not be silent in the face of ethnic prejudice. The Gospel serves as the antidote for this evil. As ambassadors for Christ, we must represent Him faithfully as ministers of reconciliation and press toward godly unity and fellowship with brothers and sisters from all backgrounds. Therefore, race and ethnicity have no bearing to the stakeholders of Western Christian Academy. All students have an equal opportunity to learn if they so choose.
