History of Ridgecrest Christian Academy - Christian School in Alabama

History

How We Started

In late 2020, Pastor Ray Jones stated, “The Lord began to burden me with this matter of our role in educating ‘the little ones.’ I have been praying since. I shared with our deacons about the spiritual need in education for our children and received their affirmation to go forward. Subsequently, I appointed a task force to begin studying and putting together a plan for how Ridgecrest could expand our ministries to include, eventually, an elementary Academy.”

Pastor Ray shared several compelling reasons for Ridgecrest to begin this process.

The Beginning of Our Nation

Since the beginning of our nation the Christian Church has historically been instrumental in the field of education.

Current Course of National Education

The current course of national education is becoming increasingly resistant and restrictive to any Christian belief, practice or expressions of Christianity, while including instruction and affirmation of lifestyles that are clearly non-biblical and excluding American Christian history and absolute moral standards.

The Church

The Church has the responsibility to preserve and protect the integrity of God’s truth in the hearts and minds of the little ones.

Christian Education

Through Christian education the Church has the opportunity to invest God’s truth in the generations to come, and thus make a difference for God.
