And if ye be Christís, then are ye Abrahamís seed, and heirs
according to the promise. ĖGalatians 3:29
Home of the Royal Heirs!
Policies and Statements
In Matthew 7, Jesus tells a story of two men who built houses. One man built his house upon the rock, while the other built his house upon the sand. The rain came down, and the waters came up, and the winds raged and beat against them. The house built on sand came down, and it didnít just fall, it fell with a great crash. The house that was anchored on the rock was able to come through the great storm and remain standing.
Our children in the days ahead are going to experience storms in their lives. It doesnít matter who they are or how much we try to keep them from it, everyone of them will face troubled, stormy times somewhere in the future. The question isnít how can we keep them out of every storm, but rather how can we make them like the house that stood through the storm. The answer is to anchor them to the Rock, Jesus Christ.
LightHouse Ranch Christian Academy (formerly Inner City Christian Academy) was founded in 1985 and is committed to providing quality Christian education that neither neglects the Christian aspect nor the educational aspect of its total program. LHRCA strives to create a partnership with the parents while providing for the growth of its students academically, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. LHRCA is an institution that is dedicated to constantly seeking ways to improve and expand its services and its mission, which is to train up strong Christian young men and women.
LightHouse Ranch Christian Academyís primary reason for existence is to help parents build the foundation of their childrenís lives on Jesus and His Word by ensuring that they spend more time being exposed to the rock of truth in Godís Word and less time being exposed to the sands of lies the world has to offer.
LightHouse Ranch Christian Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin regarding any of its programs.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
LightHouse Ranch Christian Academy is owned and operated by Gospel Ministries International (GMI, a missions church ministry), in West Point, California, and is an inseparable and integral part of its ministries. As such, LHRCA subscribes to the same tenants of faith.
The Bible is our all-sufficient rule for faith and practice. This Statement of Fundamental Truths is intended simply as a basis of fellowship among us (i.e., that we all speak the same thing, I Corinthians 1:10; Acts 2:42). The phraseology employed in the truths set forth is held to be essential to a Full Gospel ministry. No claim is made that these truths contain all Biblical truth, only that they cover our need as to these fundamental doctrines.
The Scriptures Inspired
The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct (II Timothy 3:15-17; I Thessalonians 2:13; II Peter 1:21). God has preserved the original Scriptures through the Hebrew Masoretic Text for the Old Testament, and the Greek Textus Receptus for the New Testament. Many Bible versions have been produced in an attempt to translate Godís Word, even in changing and revising these original texts. Through intensive research and study, we have found that the later English versions of the Bible have used and considered these revised texts. According to our research we have found that the King James Version of the Bible is the only English version that strictly adheres to the original texts. Therefore, we use only the King James Version exclusively.
Gospel Ministries International, worldwide in scope, is a deliverance and discipleship ministry to all people, including those of the inner city.
Watching youth become victims of an inadequate educational system, immorality, drugs, violence, and peer pressure of a humanistic society, the vision through burden of an inner city youth mission ministry meeting the needs of the whole man became a reality when ICCA, now LHRCA, was founded in July of 1985.
Since its inception, the academy has been concerned with educating children and teenagers in the concepts and values that lead to success in life, while helping them come to the knowledge of God through the Scriptures.
LightHouse Ranch Christian Academy seeks to achieve excellence in teaching and instruction, while providing an educational setting which serves to further personality and character development in the student. The academy places primary emphasis upon the education of the whole individual and not of the intellect alone.
Since the primary reason of LightHouse Ranch Christian Academy is a spiritual ministry, evangelistic efforts are made to bring all students to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ so that the teaching of spiritual truths may have a firm foundation.
LightHouse Ranch Christian Academy, therefore, provides an environment conducive to the spiritual growth and development of young people who are not yet mature Christians.
