Mauldin Christian Academy, formerly known as Church Weekday Education, opened its doors in 1968 with a 4 year old preschool class and two 5 year old preschool classes. Between 1970 and 1973 classes for 2 year olds, 3 year olds and a Mother’s Morning Out program were added. Eventually the center saw the need for a late stay program and in 1987, added its first all day daycare classes. Afterschool care for local elementary students was added in the late 1990’s.
Over the years the K5 program has come and gone depending on the needs of the community. In 2008, the decision was made to commit to having a permanent K5 program and to add a 1st grade class the following year. In December 2009, both the Center and the Church felt God leading us to expand our current elementary school program through 5th grade by adding a grade each year through 2014-2015. The Church voted and approved the expansion and in the Spring of 2010 we officially became Mauldin Christian Academy.
Currently we have two classes per grade from K5 to 5th grade. We have met our anticipated growth as an Academy and operate at full capacity in our Full-time Daycare, Morning Only Preschool and most grades in the Elementary.
God has blessed our Academy in so many ways and we look forward to seeing where our Lord takes our school in the future.
What We Believe:
We believe Jesus Christ is the son of God. He is fully God and fully human. The only way to attain salvation and eternal life is through faith in Him. We believe each individual must repent of his or her sin and trust Christ as Lord and Savior, thus establishing an eternal relationship with God.
We do not believe salvation is inherited nor gained by association with any group. Salvation is an individual’s decision to receive God’s grace through faith. At First Baptist Church Mauldin, Jesus Christ is the focus of everything we do and believe. He is Lord of every aspect of the life of every believer.
- We believe Jesus Christ was born miraculously of a virgin.
- He lived a perfect, sinless life – pointing others to the fullness of God’s plan.
- He died a sacrificial, substitutionary death – for our atonement.
- He was resurrected from the dead.
- He is alive for eternity and presently sits at the right hand of God, the Father.
- He will one day return to claim the church and rule as Lord throughout eternity.
The Authority of Scripture for Faith and Practice:
We believe the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God, giving instruction and insight for the way we practice our faith in moral responsibility, treasure our theological beliefs, and nurture relationships with God and with each other.
