In your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect. 1 Peter 3:15
Our Mission – Strengthening Faith & Making Disciples
If you’re paying attention to what’s happening in America today, you’re probably aware of the drastic decline in morality and the increasing challenges our young ones face daily – especially in the public school system.
At FourteenSix Christian Academy, it is our mission to form a strong Biblical worldview in the young children we have the privilege to disciple so that they will personally own and hold onto their faith in the midst of a culture that rejects God and the truth of His Word.
Scripture memory encourages students to hide God’s Word in their heart and is a major support to student growth in spiritual maturity. Our dedicate time to learning how to memorize and recite Scripture passages as well as Apologetics facts that help them understand why they believe what they believe and support a Creationist worldview.
Our upper elementary and middle school students are currently studying The God Man. This study explores the identity and purpose of God’s Son, as revealed through His earthly ministry. By exploring Christ’s work from His preexistence to His ascension, students learn how to apply spiritual truths to their own life as God shapes them into the image of His Son, Jesus.
Why does FCA place a strong focus on Apologetics?
It has been reported that almost 70 percent of our young people do not return to their church after attending a secular universtiy. If however, young people and others read this book by Patrick Marks, the result can be dramatically different. This book exposes the weaknesses and fallacies of Evolution theory and at the same time provides a wealth of scientific evidence that supports Creation. – Duane T. Gish, Ph.D, Senior Vice President Emeritus, Institute for Creation Research
Perhaps the most destructive idea that can enter a young person’s mind is the idea that there is no reason or purpose for their life. It is dangerous to believe life is a simple accident of circumstance and that there is no destiny or purpose to live for and discover.
This, however, is exactly what young people are told over and over every day in our public schools and universities. They are taught that they are the products of purposeless Evolution in a meaningless universe and no other views are allowed to be considered. Why? Why are these educational institutions so afraid of a view other than Evolution?
The result of this indoctrination surrounds us for all to see. Young people are confused, aimless, apathetic, lacking in self-restraint, and often self-destructive. And all this results in believing something that is not true.

Author, Understanding Evolution and Creation!
As a public school educator it has been my task to take complicated scientific concepts and repackage them in a manner the average 8th grader can understand.
