God has established His authority along with principles and laws to order the universe and form the foundation for all that we do. He instructs parents on how to rear and guide their children (Ephesians 5:21-33). He has designed responsibility and order for the church. He has established sowing and reaping principles (Galatians 6:7-10) and has given us guidelines concerning authority systems that include the church, the government and the home (Romans 13:1-7). God holds us accountable for the life we live (II Corinthians 5:10; Ephesians 5:15; Matthew 25:15).
The Bible puts our world in context and explains our fallenness and what Jesus has done to redeem us. As we follow Him, He guides toward a path of productivity for His good pleasure. We are motivated and led in ways unimaginable to a godless society. The learning and growing process is a natural outflow of our maturity and our desire to glorify our Creator. God has asked us to make a difference in our culture, acknowledging Him while upholding His principles (Genesis 1:28).
We are to be wise and thoughtful about our allegiances, our goals, and our priorities (Ephesians 5:15). We want to bring our best of mind, spirit, soul, and strength (Deuteronomy 6:4) together with the family and with the Body of Christ, and live an “Abundant Life” (John 10:10) that is pleasing to Him.
Teachers, coaches, mentors, and the Body of Christ are key components as we join with parents to prepare (disciple) our students for this service-oriented, purpose-driven life (Colossians 1:28-29; Luke 6:40; James 3:1).
Legacy Christian Academy believes that when students are properly trained and long-term results are prioritized, those students will flourish. LCA intends to seek “greater things” (John 14:12, Romans 8:11, Ephesians 1:19), in a quest to impact culture, join forces with the Body of Christ, and have significant impact both locally and to the larger world. This growth is not only physical and spiritual growth of our students, but for those who work in the school, and for the LCA organization itself. By always improving, we will attract more families to our mission (Col. 3:17).
When people partner with our mission, we become a valuable, sustainable school that meets needs, producing cutting edge results, and becomes a prosperous hub of the community. The property, the buildings, and the program behind this vision will grow to match the demand.
Thinking of the tone that Edmund Burke set, “Evil triumphs when Christians do nothing,” we will spur our students into active participation in the battle of right over wrong.
