So God created mankind in His own image…(Genesis 1:27) We are all made in the image of God. Our Creator purposely made us with differences and uniqueness to show His true reflection.

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23) Unfortunately, mankind takes what God created as beautiful and manipulates it into the ugly realities of racial and cultural biases with a focus on differences and fracturing.

This is how God showed His love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him. (1 John 4:9) Even with mankind’s sin, God has not turned away but instead sent Jesus for every one of us.

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old, he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6) Christian Academy is more than a school that delivers academic content. We have a mission to support our families in teaching children to look at every part of life through a biblical worldview. We pledge to keep conversations about racial equality going in our classrooms, in our curriculum, and our system processes.

And Jesus said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. (Matthew 22:37-39) We ask that our families join our faculty and staff in prayer for healing, in embracing real dialogue even when it’s uncomfortable, to become involved in our communities and local churches, and to find ways to serve our neighbors. Racial reconciliation can be achieved if we strive to make our world united as God intended.
