About BG Christian

Who We Are

Bowling Green Christian Academy is an interdenominational Christian school offering high academic and spiritual standards for families in Bowling Green, Ohio and the surrounding area. We exist today because parents like you had a desire to create a positive, Christian atmosphere to encourage students to achieve their highest potential - both academically and spiritually. Our success comes from working together with families to love and disciple our students. With that mission, our focus is discipleship and education through a Christian worldview.

 

As a community of committed Christian families, teachers and administrators, we strive to make God the highest priority in our children’s lives. At all grade levels, the curriculum and classroom instruction is focused on maximizing individual student achievement and developing strength of character. Our families have made an eternal investment in their children by choosing Christian education and we are proud to partner with them in this journey.

Our Mission & Vision

 

Mission: Bowling Green Christian Academy provides high-quality, distinctively Christian education. We partner with Christian families to develop life-long disciples who know their unique identity and purpose in Christ

 

Vision: To cultivate a Christ-centered, educational community where our students are equipped for a lifetime commitment of service to Christ.

Our History

In the 1970’s a group of Christian college students formed a church that initially met in homes and Prout Chapel at BGSU. As they grew they needed a space of their own. The group gave sacrificially to build, debt free, the original church structure in 1984 that included a Christian school. What began with 35 students in grades K-8 quickly grew and, in 1991, mandated an addition which now serves as the largest part of the Lower Campus (from the main school entrance to the west).

In 2008 the BG Christian Academy High School began with its
 freshman class. In 2009 the school’s burgeoning growth was relieved by partnering with Dayspring Church and the use of their educational wing for grades 6-12, now known as the Upper Campus. Then in 2011 the school added on the preschool program. This two campus model continues to serve all of our students Preschool through 12th grade.

 

 

Our Statement of Faith

  • There is one God, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  • Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died upon the cross as a substitution sacrifice and all who believe in Him, in total surrender and commitment are justified on the grounds of His shed blood. He arose from the dead and will come again to establish His kingdom of righteousness and peace.

  • The Holy Spirit is sent to indwell, guide, teach, empower the believer, and convince the world of sin, righteousness and judgment.

  • The Word of God, the Old and New Testament, inerrant as originally given, is inspired by God and is a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men.

  • Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God; he fell through disobedience, enduring thereby both physical and spiritual death.

  • Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; and those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become the children of God.

  • There shall be a resurrection of the just and unjust.

  • The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is certain. His is the believer’s blessed hope and is a vital truth which is incentive to holy living and faithful service.

Our Philosophy of Christian Education

BG Christian begins with the premise that the only true education is a Christ-centered education. This premise is based upon the fact that only Christian education deals with all the dimensions of life as viewed from a Biblical perspective.

  • Reality - God is the personal and purposeful Creator and represents the guiding force of the universe. Reality in life involves the understanding that God is real and is active in the lives of men and women today.

  • Truth - All truth is God’s truth. Truth is consistent throughout the universe. Truth exists and is an absolute. God has shown Himself through His Scriptures, and man’s understanding of truth comes through a study of the inspired Word of God and an understanding of His creation.

  • Knowledge - All knowledge must be put in the context of Biblical truth. Any knowledge or personal conviction which serves as a guiding principle in an individual’s life must be based on truth as revealed in God’s inspired Word.

  • Man - Man is created in the spiritual and moral image or likeness of God. Man’s essential nature is his freedom to choose or decide for himself what he will think, become and do. Man’s essential freedom of choice is affected by his inherent nature and his environment of both good and evil. Therefore, he is in need of special help to choose good which is to find fulfillment in a reconciled life made possible by Jesus Christ, the divine Son of God.

  • Sanctity of Human Life - We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore call to defend, protect, and value all human life.

  • Christian Education - In order for an educational program to be academically sound and instructionally effective, it must be founded upon Christian educational principles that recognize the true nature of God, of truth, of knowledge and of man.

  • Implicit in Christian education are these basic truth:

    1. Man possesses a spiritual dimension (Genesis 1:26-27).

    2. Education involves the total being: spiritual, intellectual, physical and social (Proverbs 9:9).

    3. Each person possesses unique individual potential, traits and needs (Romans 12”3-8).

    4. The educational experience must involve the development of Christian beliefs, attitudes and skills.

    5. An integration of Biblical truth will be an inseparable and primary part of the total educational process. Christian concepts will be central to the academic studies.

    6. Children need a steady influence while preparing to live in a complex society. Only the Bible has the answers to man’s needs and longings. The Bible will serve as our final authority on all questions.
