International Christian Leadership Institute

Statement of Faith

Nashua Christian Academy is a regional discipleship-model Christian school for grades K-12. NCA families come from more than 50 churches in a broad range of Christian denominations. This diversity within the body of Christ greatly enhances the living curriculum as we examine Scripture together. Students learn the fundamentals of the faith in daily Bible classes and experience them first-hand at numerous outreach events during the year. Denominational differences are recognized, and students are encouraged to discuss those differences with their parents and pastor to better understand what they believe and why.

Of all the enduring qualities that develop in childhood and adolescence, character is the most important. Our commitment as a discipleship model school is to partner closely with Christian families and their local churches to foster meaningful Christ-centered relationships. Communication, praise, discipline, mentoring–all these are done in the light of Christ’s example.

Learning and living successfully require God’s wisdom, strength and guidance. Knowledge is just the beginning. Heart, character, attitude – these are the qualities that make a difference in someone’s life. A heart for God finds purpose in what it learns, and applies that knowledge with understanding to impact the world.

Godly character testifies to God’s grace and love.

Development of Godly character? That is, quite simply, the work of the Spirit. And God’s Spirit is found in his Presence. That is where we study, work and play at Nashua Christian Academy.

  • Encouragement – Instruction at NCA is provided in an atmosphere of respect and encouragement, as we work to build up each student spiritually, intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally. “So now brothers, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.” – Acts 20:32

  • Growth – Every staff member at NCA is committed to seeking professional and spiritual growth in order to enhance his or her service to the Lord. “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” – 2 Timothy 2:15
  • Development of the Whole Person – At NCA our success resides in the hearts of our students. Nashua Christian Academy strives to instill a passion for God and compassion for others in each and every student. We offer many opportunities for our students in K-12 to live out their Christian faith in community service and active world missions (James 2:14-17). NCA is committed to developing the whole student; encouraging a whole-hearted pursuit of God.
