Spiritual Life That Contains a Christ Centered Learning Experience.

The statement of faith adopted by Eukarya Christian Academy is limited to those primary Christian doctrines central to all Christian denominations; which sets Christianity apart from other faiths. Portions of the following statement of faith are borrowed with permission from the National Christian Foundation for Education and the Arts By-Laws.

Our Statement of Faith For Students

We believe that the God of the Bible is the source of all truth. Thus, all genuine intellectual pursuits lead logically to God. This one God reveals Himself as three persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) and is self-existent, eternal, unchanging, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, holy, righteous, and loving (2 Cor. 13:14; Col. 1:15-20).

We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Bible. That is, it is the infallible Word of God, written by men ‘inspired’ by the Holy Spirit. As such, it, and not man, is the standard of truth (Jeremiah 9:23-24; Colossians 2:8; 2 Tim. 3:16-17). It is the ultimate source of knowledge about God and the only definitive guide for our daily lives.

We believe the primary goal of life and education to be the glory of God which comes about by living a life that uses all our talents while pointing to Jesus Christ.

We believe the gospel that, a) The only Son of God (Jesus) came in the flesh to take the sins of the world, was crucified, died, was buried and on the third day was raised from the dead (Romans 5:8; 1 Cor. 15:1-3), and that b) All who believe on His name are forgiven and granted eternal life (John 1:11-13, 5:24; Romans 4:5; Titus 3:5).

We believe that every believer in Christ is inhabited by the Holy Spirit, and called through Him to “do greater works than (Jesus) did” (John 14:12). We believe that Christians need to learn to walk in the Spirit so they reflect the fruit thereof (Gal. 5:22-23).

We agree with the Nicene Creed and the historic tenets ‘by Scripture alone’, ‘by the cross alone’, ‘by grace alone’, ‘by faith alone’, ‘Christ alone’, and ‘glory to God alone’.

We seek to promote unity and charity among those who affirm these truths but have differing convictions within some areas of Christian life. We teach and apply dogmatically and unapologetically these truths, but acknowledge that sincere Christians hold differing views on certain non-essential issues.

ECA Missions

Eukarya Christian Academy Missions exists to allow students to experience the heart of God for those around the world, whether in their own country, or in other nations. God's passion is for people to know Him. Our desire is to empower local teens to accept his invitation to break out of their  comfort zone as we provide opportunities to spend time serving those around the world. In plugging into this purpose, lives are forever changed.

What changes have you observed as a result of your student's trip with ECA?
Silas thoroughly enjoyed Summit and learned so much about critical thinking from a Biblical Worldview. Even though he has grown up in a church with solid Biblical teaching, Summit was able to take him to the next level in his faith and in apologetics. The things he learned at Summit often come up in conversations he has with us, with his peers, and even with his secular professors at Lord Fairfax Community College.

~ What is something that you have appreciated about ECA Missions?
We appreciated Silas being able to tag along even though he is not a Eukarya student. We also appreciated the fundraisers and stipend from the school that helped make the trip affordable. We were never able to send our two older boys to Summit for financial reasons so this opportunity through Eukarya was a wonderful blessing.

~Would you recommend ECA Missions to a friend?

‘Since returning from her mission trip and witnessing extreme poverty firsthand, Savannah has a better understanding of how truly blessed we are to live in this country. It has made her realize the value of a dollar. She doesn’t take things for granted as much and has learned to be more content with what she has. When others may be complaining about how they want a new phone, clothes, etc. she will often say to them be thankful for what you have. She witnessed the Haitians continually praising God even though they had so little. It made her realize how we can praise God even in dark times. She definitely has more compassion and empathy for those that are suffering.

One thing I appreciated about ECA missions was the communication during the trip. I was nervous sending my 16 year old daughter away for 2 weeks on a mission, but they made me feel completely comfortable the entire time. The leaders sent us updates daily and pictures which was an added bonus!  They made me feel at peace and I knew Savannah was in good hands.

I would highly recommend ECA missions! The communication, planning and organization of the trip was excellent. I could see God’s hands work throughout the entire process. It was a life changing experience for my daughter. Everyone should have the opportunity to go on a mission trip.’
