History

Windham Christian Academy is a non denominational, Christian school founded in 1981.   We are a ministry of Tree of Life Church which started when six families put their homes up as collateral in order to purchase the land where Windham Christian Academy stands today.   A year after opening the church, all six of the founding families felt called to open a school. Today, Windham Christian Academy is a light to many in the community.  

STatement of Faith

Windham Christian Academy is a ministry of Tree of Life Church. As it is not our intent to impose our doctrinal distinctives on the adherents of other denominations, we have formulated a Statement of Faith as a basis for unity within our school community. These doctrines will be freely taught as fundamentals of the Christian faith. 

 

When issues of doctrinal distinctives arise, we encourage the student to speak to their parents and/or pastor for their answers. It is our desire to assist the local church in every way, so we encourage our staff and students to support their local church and pastor. 

 

STATEMENT OF FAITH

  1. We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God.  (2 Timothy 3:15,16; 2 Peter 1:21)

  2. We believe there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  (Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; Mark 12:29; John 5:17-30; John 10:30)

  3. We believe in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ and in His complete and perfect humanity.  We believe in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal future return to gather together His saints, which is known as the Rapture of the Church.  (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Mark 16:19; Luke 1:35; John 10:33; Acts 1:1, 9, 11, 2:32; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; Hebrews 4:15, 7:26; Revelation 19:11)

  4. We believe that man was created good and upright in the image of God, but man voluntarily sinned and thereby incurred both physical and spiritual death, which is separation from God.  (Genesis 1:26,27; 2:17; 3:6; Romans 5:12-19)

  5. We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential to salvation, and His indwelling presence necessary for the living of a Godly Christian life; and that it is only by grace through faith in the precious blood of Christ, that man can be saved from sin and its evil.  (John 3:16-19, 5:24; Romans 3:23, 5:8-9; Titus 2:11, 3:5-7)

  6. We believe in the Holy Spirit as a person, separate and distinct from, and coequal in the triune Godhead with the Father and the Son.  He is sent to dwell within the heart of each child of God, to comfort, to teach, to lead into all truth, and to empower us for personal ministry through signs, wonders, and the exercise of miracles.  (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4,8; 2:4; 10:44-46; 15:8,9; Romans 8:13,14; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19,20; 1 Corinthians 12-14; Ephesians 4:30, 5:18)

  7. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of the second death.  (John 5:28,29)

  8. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 12:12,13; Galatians 3:26-28)

  9. We believe that God has charged parents with the responsibility of bringing up their children in the "nurture and admonition of the Lord." (Ephesians 6:4)
