Open Bible Christian Academy was begun in 1949 by key leaders who saw a need for a school where the Bible could be taught, Christ could be praised, and children could be reared in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. This school exists to assist Christian parents in the formal education of their children, preparing and equipping each student intellectually and spiritually for service in the Kingdom of God. This is to be accomplished through the provision of an atmosphere which “nurtures in the Lord,” a curriculum which teaches God’s revealed Truth, and changes hearts and minds through the leading and power of the Holy Spirit. Each student, as a unique image bearer of God, is to be taught how to live an abundant life for Christ in this world while not being of this world. Individual gifts are to be identified and encouraged for career callings necessary for the Body of Christ, in order to be salt and light in a world over which Christ is King.
The objective of this school is to have Jesus Christ as the center of all learning and knowledge. Psalm 111:10 says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” It is our desire to have an atmosphere where boys and girls interact together in a godly and righteous manner. Realizing that children are raw material needing to be molded and shaped, it is our prayer to do that molding and shaping so that as they grow, they will, through their lives, bring honor to the Lord. We plan to accomplish this with teachers who are professed Christians, whose lives can be examples to our children. Our objective is to hold up Christ and His Word as the perfect example to a sinful world. We want our students to be equipped both intellectually and spiritually for the years that are ahead.
Open Bible Christian Academy exists to glorify God and enjoy Him by: Forming our hearts for learning about God and His world, informing our minds with truth for life, transforming our imaginations with purpose in God’s kingdom. We are a school where heart and passion fuel learning.
Open Bible Christian Academy is a home for students to receive a Christ-centered education, focused on preparatory studies where Christ is pre-eminent and the Bible is the guiding authority. The school partners with parents and the church to train, develop, nurture and instruct each student to their highest, God-given potential. Loving, dedicated and qualified teachers instruct and challenge students to love God, to apply biblical principles to their lives and to become lifelong learners through an educational program defined by spiritual, academic and extracurricular excellence.
Open Bible Christian Academy believes that the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God and that from the very first word of Genesis to the last word of Revelation, it is God’s plan for the redemption and salvation for sinful man. We believe in the innate sinfulness of man as inherited from Adam. We believe that God sent Jesus Christ in the flesh, being God, to die upon the cross and provide once and for all a blood sacrifice for our sins. We believe that there is salvation in none other, but that through the blood of Christ and profession of his Name we have eternal life. We believe in the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit, as the Godhead who function and operate in unity. We believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of our Savior, and that He set up His kingdom as prophesied by Isaiah. Until then He is our mediator and our advocate unto the Father.
