HARVEST TIME CHRISTIAN ACADEMY (HTCA), in addition to being an institution of education, is a channel through which the Lord Jesus Christ can be more clearly revealed. However, in this context, it is necessary for us to present a clear statement of our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible. We should combine with that statement a substantive and definitive school purpose.

STATEMENT OF FAITH

  • We believe the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God, the final authority for doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction in right living (King James Version).
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, fully man and fully God, only begotten Son of the Father. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and lived a sinless life. He was crucified, buried, and rose physically from the dead. He ascended to the right hand of the Father and will come again in power and glory.
  • We believe that for the salvation of the lost, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential and that this salvation is received through faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and not as a result of good works.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit carries out this work in our lives, empowering us to grow in loving union with our Heavenly Father and to walk in obedience to His will.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

SCHOOL PURPOSE

  • It is our conviction that God, the Creator of the family, has placed with the parents the overall responsibility for training their children (Ephesians 6:4). Therefore, we desire to establish a God-oriented school of high academic quality which will support and not undermine the training children receive in the home and church.
  • It is our conviction that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Psalm 111:10). Therefore, HTCA will promote reverence of the Lord and encourage inquiry into all areas of creation and culture from a scriptural perspective.
  • It is our conviction that the influence of the teachers as Christian role models is essential in the educational experience of children. Therefore, all faculty and staff will be individuals with a strong love for God with an evident witness of the Holy Spirit in their lives.
  • It is our conviction that Christian education would encourage the whole personal development of students who learn to love the Lord with all their hearts, souls, and minds (Matthew 22:37-38). Therefore, we desire that HTCA produce students who are committed to Christ and who are maturing in their ability to live the Christ-like life as salt and light in the culture and society in which God places them.
