In partnership with Christian parents, Kingdom Preparatory Academy strives to teach and disciple our students through a biblical worldview. We aspire to nurture faith and love in Jesus Christ to shape excellence in spirit, soul, and body. Utilizing God’s wisdom, we equip our students to stand courageously against the negative values of this world and live wholeheartedly with compassion and a servant’s heart.
Statement of Faith
- The Word of God. We believe the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments are the only inspired, infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God, complete as a revelation of God’s will for salvation, and the supreme and final authority in faith and life (2 Timothy 3:15; 2 Peter 1: 21; Revelation 22:19). We adhere to the Bible’s orthodox interpretation regarding all matters including, but not limited to, the sanctity of life beginning at conception, and the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman. We believe all other books external to the Bible (i.e. Book of Mormon, Non-Protestant Bible translations, modern day writings from Bible teachers, etc.) are man’s attempt to interpret God’s Word and thus should not be held as the inspired Word of God.
- The Trinity. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each person is fully God, distinct and yet fully one (Genesis 1:26; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 3:16-17; Matthew 28:19).
- God the Father. We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit; perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. We believe He concerns himself mercifully in the affairs of men, hears and answers prayer, and saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ (John 16:23-27; Galatians 4:4-6; Ephesians 1:3; Ephesians 1:17-23).
- God the Son. We believe that Jesus Christ is God’s eternal son. He is true God and true man, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. We also believe in His sinless life, His substitutionary atonement, His death, His bodily resurrection from the dead, His ascension into Heaven, His priestly intercession on behalf of His people, and His personal, visible, return from Heaven (Matthew 1:18, 23; Luke 24:1-8; Matthew 12:40; Acts 2:27; Ephesians 4:8-10; John 1:14; Acts 1:11; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; Hebrews 4:14-16; Hebrews 7:24-25; Revelation 19, 20).
- God the Holy Spirit. We believe the Holy Spirit is a person and is fully God. He regenerates, baptizes into the body of Christ, and indwells every believer; guides and empowers believers, and gives gifts to all believers to be used in ministry so that the church functions properly. We affirm all the gifts of the Holy Spirit as necessary for the building up of the body of Christ (Matthew 28:19; John 3:5; John 16:13; Acts 1:8; Acts 5:3-4; 1 Corinthians 6:11, 19; 1 Corinthians 12:4-13; Romans 12:3-8; Ephesians 3:16; Ephesians 4:11-16).
- The Deity of Christ. We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33) in that He was completely God and completely human; He (Christ) was not a created being such as the angels are; His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9); His physical bodily resurrection (John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); and His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11).
- Man. We believe God originally created man, male and female, in the image of God and free from sin. We further believe that man, because of his fall through Adam, is a sinner by nature and choice and is therefore spiritually dead, in need of salvation (Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 2:7-3:19; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12-21; Romans 6:23).
- Salvation. We believe in salvation by grace alone through faith in Jesus Christ. We further believe that this salvation is based upon the sovereign grace of God, was purchased by Christ on the cross, and is received by man through faith alone, apart from any human merit, works, or ritual. Salvation results in righteous living, good works, and proper social concern (John 1:12; John 3:3-7; John 5:24; Romans 3:21-24; Romans 5:1-2; Ephesians 2:8-10; 1 Timothy 2:5).
- Last Things. We believe in the bodily resurrection of all mankind; the eternal, conscious existence of all men, either in Heaven or Hell; and in divine judgments, rewards, and punishments (John 5:29; 1 Corinthians 3:11-15; 1 Corinthians 15:51-58; 2 Corinthians 5:6-10; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18; 2 John 8; Revelation 19, 20).
- Unity. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28).
- Christian Conduct. We believe that the supreme task of every believer is to glorify God in his life. The believer should live blamelessly before the world, be a faithful steward of his possessions, and seek to realize for himself the full stature of maturity in Christ (1 Corinthians 10:31; Colossians 1:28; 1 Timothy 6:6-9; 1 Peter 1:14-15).
- Church Involvement. Families must be active members of a local church (i.e. a group of believers meeting on a routine basis, submitted to the authority of a pastor/elder in which they receive teaching, accountability, and encouragement in God’s Word) in order to stand firm in uncompromising biblical convictions (Hebrews 10:24-25; 13:7, 17; I Timothy 4:13; Acts 2:42).
Religious School Participation Criteria
Kingdom Preparatory Academy requires all stakeholders (i.e., employees, volunteers, parent(s) responsible for raising their children in the “training and instruction of the Lord”, etc.) to sign a statement affirming that they agree with the school’s Statement of Faith and are willing to comply with the organization’s standards of conduct. These signed statements are part of an individual’s permanent record. It is important to note that violation of Kingdom Preparatory Academy’s Statement of Faith or standards of conduct constitutes potential cause for termination of employment or expulsion from the school.
We are motivated in all facets by our faith in Jesus Christ, attempting to serve as a reflection of God’s unconditional love for all people. We seek to honor the Lord in all that we do by operating Kingdom Preparatory Academy in a manner consistent with Biblical principles. Every activity and speech that Kingdom Preparatory Academy or its employees, representatives, volunteers, or students engage in shall be consistent with, and in furtherance of, Kingdom Preparatory Academy’s religious purposes, both publicly and privately. This is because we are committed to putting our faith into action every day as we use our lives to make a tangible difference for students.
All activities in which Kingdom Preparatory Academy engages are for the dual religious purposes of furthering its Christian mission, message, and viewpoint and educating students in accordance with that mission. Whether the activity has an exclusively religious purpose (e.g. worship service, discipleship classes, or religious teaching) or is an ancillary religious activity (e.g. community service projects, extracurricular activities, or social events), it is intended to glorify God. Kingdom Preparatory Academy conducts all activities in a holistic manner in order to foster, repeat, advertise, or express its Christian mission, message and viewpoint. In this way, every school activity itself is infused with a religious purpose, as an act of faith, intending to further Kingdom Preparatory Academy ‘s religious beliefs and commitment to the faith.
Conveying Kingdom Preparatory Academy’s Christian message is at the heart of all that we do, in life, deed, word, and expression. Kingdom Preparatory Academy is dedicated to instilling in our students and the community the Gospel message of Jesus Christ, not simply engaging in organized worship. Provision of charity and community services, including but not limited to care for children, widows, and those in need, as well as evangelism, strengthening Christian leadership, discipleship, and Biblical education, are means of fulfilling Christian duty and providing an example of the Christ-like way of life that Kingdom Preparatory Academy seeks to foster. Therefore, all behavior of students and staff of the school is communicative in nature, exemplifying the faith. Associating with like-minded Christian families reinforces Kingdom Preparatory Academy’s Christian purpose and is vital to the faith’s perpetuation.
Finally, the primary, exclusive, and only purposes for which Kingdom Preparatory Academy is organized are religious in nature, including the propagation of our religious faith through biblical education, community services, and curriculum. Likewise, Kingdom Preparatory Academy intends to disseminate, teach, and preach the Gospel and teachings of Jesus Christ, to encourage and aid the growth, nurture, and spread of Christianity and to render Christian service. The recital of these purposes is intended to be exclusive of any and all other purposes, this school being formed for religious and charitable purposes only.
