Mission Statement

The purpose and mission of the Christian Academy of Madison is to work cooperatively with the student’s home and church to provide a biblically-based, Christ-centered learning environment which promotes spiritual maturity, academic excellence and personal growth, ministering to the whole child.

All Scripture is self-attesting, and being truth, requires our unreserved submission in all areas of life to the authority of the infallible Word of God, as written in the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments—a unified witness to God’s redemptive acts culminating in the incarnation of The Living Word, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible, uniquely and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, is the supreme and final authority in all matters on which it speaks.

On this foundation we affirm the following as essentials of our faith:
1. We believe in one God, the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

2. Jesus Christ, the Loving Word, became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. He who is truly God became truly man, united in one person forever. He died on the cross, a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. On the third day He arose bodily from the dead and ascended into heaven where, at the right hand of the Majesty High, He now is our High Priest and Mediator.

3. The Holy Spirit has come to glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to our hearts. He convicts of sin and draws us to the Savior. Indwelling our hearts, He gives new life to us, empowers and imparts gifts to us for service, and seals us for the day of redemption.

4. Being estranged from God and condemned by our sinfulness, our salvation is wholly dependent upon the work of God’s free grace. God credits His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation and thereby justifies them in His sight. Only such as are born of the Holy Spirit and receive Jesus Christ become children of God and heirs of eternal life.

5. The true church is composed of all persons who, through saving faith in Jesus Christ and the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit, are united together in the body of Christ.

6. Jesus Christ will come again to the earth personally, visibly, and bodily to judge the living and the dead and to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.

7. The Lord Jesus Christ commands all believers to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world and to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them and teaching them according to Matthew 28:19-20
