We aim to provide Christ-like love, promote a Biblical worldview, pursue excellence in education and partner with our families.
The vision of Northside Christian Academy is to trust our Lord as we seek academic and biblical excellence. We believe this will be accomplished with much prayer, commitment, and great leadership among the administration and faculty, supported by a strong base of parental involvement. Our goal is to prepare students to be fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ so that the generations to come might know Him. (Psalm 78:4)
To lovingly lead and equip students to believe, defend, and proclaim the Truth of Jesus Christ which is the Holy Bible from Genesis to Revelation.
HISTORY OF NCA
About Northside Christian Academy
In September of 2011, Northside Christian Academy opened its doors as a ministry of Northside Baptist Church. Northside Christian Academy is the result of much prayer, fasting, and vision on the part of those whom God called to launch a distinctively different Christian school in the Lexington Community. The school was birthed on the behalf of the children and families in Lexington and the greater Columbia area, in order that they may Believe, Defend, and Proclaim the TRUTH of Jesus Christ which is the Holy Bible from Genesis to Revelation.
We believe that by God's divine providence the school has come into existence. God began a work by planting seeds in the hearts of a high school student, a pastor, and three moms. In God's perfect timing He would weave these lives together to begin an incredible journey. Jeremiah 33:3 says, "Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know." Almost two years ago we began to call to God for a Christian school in Lexington, South Carolina.
We formed a team of prayer warriors and began to meet and pray. Although our faith has been tested along the way, God has been "Faithful and True" (Revelation 19:11). The valleys have been exalted and the mountains have been brought low; the crooked places have been made straight and the rough places smooth, so that the glory of the LORD may be revealed... (Isaiah 40:4-5).
God has made the impossible possible!
The very heartbeat of Northside Christian Academy is to have a distinct and lasting effect upon our community and our nation. Our mission is to assist parents in providing a wholly Christian Education so that their children are rooted and grounded in a biblical worldview. As you work through this website, we believe you will see the difference that a Northside Christian Academy education will make.
In January of 2022 we began Phase 1 of our Legacy Campaign to expand our elementary school. We added 5,784 additional square feet to include 9 classrooms, 3 bathrooms and a covered outdoor area. We also opened a second campus offering K4 and K5 in September 2022. The Lord is continuing to bless and grow his kingdom with Northside. We are currently praying for Phase 2 funding that will include a Student Life Center, Fine Arts space, and cutting edge Science and Computer labs. Our vision for Athletics continues with a Field House to include locker rooms, team facilities, and a weight room over looking the current fields.
The journey has just begun, and we are confident of this, that He who begins a good work, will complete it (Philippians 1:6). We serve a Great and Mighty God to Whom we give all the glory and praise!
BELIEFS OF NCA
We believe there is one and only one living and true God. He is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. God is all powerful, all knowing, and His perfect knowledge extends to all things, past, present, and future, including the future decisions of His creation. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience. The eternal God reveals himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being. This is called the Trinity.
Genesis 1:1, 26-27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 Timothy 1:17
We believe the Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy. It reveals the principles by which God judges us, and therefore is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
Isaiah 40:8; Psalm 119:105, 160; Proverbs 30:5; 2 Timothy 1:13, 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21
We believe Jesus is the eternal Son of God, co-equal with the Father. When Jesus took on human form, He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and offered Himself as the one and only perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on the cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again to earth to reign as King.
Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14; 10:30; 14:7-11; Acts 1:9-11; Romans 1:3-4; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Colossians 1:15-20; Hebrews 4:14-15; Titus 2:13
We believe the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He guided human authors to give us a perfect Bible. He is present in the world today to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power, understanding, and guidance. When we are saved, the Holy Spirit gives every believer at least one spiritual gift. As Christians, we seek to live under his control.
