Our Story

Education is one of – if not the most important investment you will make in your child’s life. At King’s Academy, we believe that a child’s spiritual growth is just as important as his or her academic advancement and that Christ is to be the leader in learning and in life. We invite you to discover how King’s Academy can equip your child for a life of Christian discipleship, leadership, service and excellence.

Generally, as Americans, when we hear the word “king,” one or two images come to mind.

The first, from our study of the history of our country, is that of a distant tyrant across the ocean who mistreats the people and taxes their tea. The second image, born from history and, perhaps the movies, is that of a now-meaningless figurehead; a historical office held over from the past that no longer wields any real power.

When we speak of Jesus Christ as our King, we are not alluding to either a tyrant or a figurehead—or even a benevolent king who rules for a season. We are instead speaking of a perfect, righteous, unrivaled and loving King who is absolutely sovereign in His authority and eternal in His reign.

Both the Old and New Testaments share explicit references to Jesus—the Messiah—as being a king. The angel Gabriel, when he announced to Mary that she would give birth to Jesus, said in Luke 1:32-33:

He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to Him the throne of his father David, and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.

In other Scriptures, Jesus is referred to as the King of the Jews (Matthew 1:2), the King of Israel (Mark 15:32), the “the blessed and only Sovereign” (1 Timothy 6:15) the King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Revelation 19:16). Even the term Lord, used so often of Jesus, speaks of His supreme power and authority.

Ephesians 1:20-22 tells us that Jesus is now seated at [God’s] right hand in the heavenly places, “far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.”

We have a King, and His name is Jesus. He is not just a king but the king—the King of Kings, with authority and dominion over all things.

Jesus Christ is a king, and yet His kingdom is not of this world.  He came to bear witness to the truth, and those who are of the truth listen to His voice.

If Jesus is our King, we cannot be content with blending into the world around us. We are compelled to live as loyal subjects of a heavenly kingdom, giving our lives in service to Christ our King, and we will “walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God” (Colossians 1:10).

As citizens of the kingdom, we are to be ambassadors for Jesus. One of our primary tasks is carrying the king’s message – to the world, including to our children. In fact, we are commanded to be diligent in teaching our children to know God’s Word and to teach them how they can know Him (Deuteronomy 6:1-8).
