A Note From Our Principal, Brother Newman
In my early years as an educator I heard a song which had a strong impact on my career choice in Christian Education. “Christian Education does not cost it pays. Pays eternal dividends in so many ways…” The point of the song was to clarify that the Christian does not just view life in the here and now, but for all eternity.
Because of this, the program at Life Center Academy is all about exalting the name of Jesus. The Gospel of John states that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and that no man comes to the Father but by Him. Colossians 2:3 tells us that in Christ Jesus are hidden all treasures of wisdom and knowledge. This is not a presumption but truth. The educational mission of LCA is enhanced by the freedom we have to empower our students with truth. God is alive and well. God cares for them. God provides standards to ensure success in life. They can do all things through Christ who strengthens them. And beyond this that God offers them power to be more than conquerors.
Knowing God instills purpose and meaning to one’s life which in turn encourages a student to do their best to prepare for a life that is meant to be lived in a productive manner. Watching what God has done and is doing in the lives of LCA students enables me to joyfully quote Psalm 98:1, “Oh, Sing to the Lord a new song! For He has done marvelous things.”
