Open Bible Christian Academy was begun in 1949 by key leaders who saw a need for a school where the Bible could be taught, Christ could be praised, and children could be reared in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. This school exists to assist Christian parents in the formal education of their children, preparing and equipping each student intellectually and spiritually for service in the Kingdom of God. This is to be accomplished through the provision of an atmosphere which “nurtures in the Lord,” a curriculum which teaches God’s revealed Truth, and changes hearts and minds through the leading and power of the Holy Spirit. Each student, as a unique image bearer of God, is to be taught how to live an abundant life for Christ in this world while not being of this world. Individual gifts are to be identified and encouraged for career callings necessary for the Body of Christ, in order to be salt and light in a world over which Christ is King.
The objective of this school is to have Jesus Christ as the center of all learning and knowledge. Psalm 111:10 says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” It is our desire to have an atmosphere where boys and girls interact together in a godly and righteous manner. Realizing that children are raw material needing to be molded and shaped, it is our prayer to do that molding and shaping so that as they grow, they will, through their lives, bring honor to the Lord. We plan to accomplish this with teachers who are professed Christians, whose lives can be examples to our children. Our objective is to hold up Christ and His Word as the perfect example to a sinful world. We want our students to be equipped both intellectually and spiritually for the years that are ahead.
