Statement of Faith

Uvalde Classical Academy

Statement of Faith

 

The statement of faith adopted by Uvalde Classical Academy is limited to primary Christian doctrine, which is considered to be central to all Christian denominations, and which sets Protestant Christianity apart from others.  Our statement of faith focuses on the truths that have bound orthodox Protestant Christians together through the ages, across the boundaries of time, place, race, denomination and tradition. For our purposes, a Christian is one who has heard the truth, Gospel (Col.1: 5), as summarized in the statement below, and who has responded to that message in genuine repentance and faith.  He confesses with his mouth and believes in his heart that Jesus is Lord, that He died for his sins, and that God raised Him from the dead (Romans 10:9,10).  The substance of these statements is that which will be considered primary doctrine in Uvalde Classical Academy.  Secondary doctrines and issues will not be presented as primary doctrine.  When these types of doctrine or issues arise, they will be referred back to the family and local churches for final authority.

Primary Doctrine:

  1. The Bible.  We believe that the Bible is God’s written revelation to man, and thus the sixty-six books of the Bible given to us by the Holy Spirit constitute the plenary (inspired equally in all parts) Word of God.  We believe that the Word of God is objective, absolute revelation, verbally inspired in every word, exact in the original documents, infallible, and God breathed.  We teach that the Bible constitutes the only acceptable rule of faith and practice.  (John 17:17, 2 Tim. 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21)
  1. The Holy Trinity.  We believe that there is one God, manifested in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  He is omnipotent (all-powerful), omniscient (all-knowing), and omnipresent (all present).
  1. Creation and Man.  We believe that the Triune God, according to His sovereign will and for His own glory, created the heavens and the earth without the use of pre-existent material.  All living things, we believe, came into being by a direct creative act of God and not by an evolutionary or random process, and thus have an existence distinct from Him and yet always dependent on Him.  We believe that God directly and immediately created man in His image and likeness.  We believe man was created free of sin.  We teach that God’s intention in the creation of man was that man should glorify God, enjoy God’s fellowship, live his life in the will of God, and by this accomplish God’s purpose for man in the world.  We believe that in Adam’s sin of disobedience to the revealed will and Word of God, man lost his innocence.  We teach that because all men were in Adam, a nature corrupted by Adam’s sin has been transmitted to all men of all ages, Jesus Christ being the only exception.  All men are thus sinners by nature, by choice, and by divine declaration.(Gen. 2:4, Prov. 16:4, Acts 17:24, Col. 1:16-17, Gen 2:16-17, Gen. 3, John 3:36, Rom. 3:9-18,23, Rom. 6:23, Eph.2, 1-3)
  1. Salvation.  We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God; He came to us in human, bodily form through the virgin birth and was resurrected from the dead.  We believe Jesus Christ gave His life on the cross to bring salvation to the world.  Belief in His sacrifice is the only means of salvation.  By His blood we have forgiveness for our sins and by the stripes on His back we were healed.  Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.  Jesus Christ is still healing, delivering, and restoring people; body, soul and spirit by the power of the Holy Spirit.  (Mat. 16:16, John 1:1, Luke 1:35, 1 Peter 1:18,19, 1 Peter 2:24, Mark16:18, James 6:14-25)

  1. The Church.  We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in the body of our Lord Jesus Christ, of which He is the head.  We agree with admonition of Scripture not to forsake the gathering together with fellow believers and therefore advocate active participation in a local church.  The purpose of the church is to glorify God by growing in faith and knowledge of God through instruction in the Word, fellowship, keeping the ordinances, and advancing and communicating the gospel to the entire world. (Mat. 28:19, Acts 2:38-43, Eph. 1:22, Eph. 4:5,13-16, Eph. 5:23, Heb. 10:24-25)

Goals for a Graduate of UCA

 

Goals for a Graduate of UCA

At Uvalde Classical Academy we are in the process of designing a program around the school’s mission and the goals listed below.  We try to consider these goals with the purpose of shaping the hearts, souls, and minds of our students.  Our ultimate goal is to graduate students who are filled with a passion for Christ while arming them with the Truth of God’s Word.  Our hope is that graduates will be ready to be used to boldly impact the world for Christ.

 

Successful graduates will possess:

1. Virtue and mature character: Beyond mere rule following, virtue and mature character is a “heart-obedience” encompassed by: good manners, honorable relationships, self-control, and Christian leadership. We model this, teach this, and instill it in our students by studying and gleaning wisdom from the great stories and characters of the West. More than this, we teach students to live in accordance with Coram Deo– as though they were in the presence of God at all times.

2. Sound reason and sound faith: We expect students to embrace a Christian worldview with all Scripture as the measure of ultimate Truth. We expect them to demonstrate the wisdom necessary to recognize complex issues and to follow the consequences of ideas.

3. A masterful command of language: Because language enables us to know things beyond what we have directly experienced, nothing is more important within a solid Christian education. Without a strong command of language, even scripture is silent. As people of “the Word,” Christians should be masters of language.

4. Well-rounded competence:  Educated people have competence in a variety of areas.  These include: fine art, drama, music, physical activity, mathematics, logic, science and rhetoric. Throughout our program, skills essential for an educated person are introduced, practiced, and ultimately mastered.

5. Literacy with broad exposure to books :   Educated people are well-read and able to discuss and relate to central works of literature, science, art, architecture, and music. We expect our graduates to be conversant in the important literature and ideas of Christian theology because of their thorough, progressive study of the great church reformers, church history, and the Bible.  Our obligatory literature will formulate them to be well-versed in our own western history as they each read stories and accounts intended to bring western culture alive in the hearts and minds of its readers.

Parent Teacher Council

UCA was founded on the principle that the family is an integral part of our school. In order for us to thrive as a school, we ask parents to contribute to the success of our school in a volunteer capacity during the school year. Our Parent Teacher Organization exists to coordinate all of our school events. We offer many opportunities for our students’ families to get involved and contribute to UCA. We believe that God has given each of our parents unique talents and gifts that He can use to bless our school!

UCA is accepting Box Tops for Education and Labels for Education.  Amazon.com shoppers can use the following link to shop and Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to Uvalde Classical Academy.
