We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible written Word of God. We affirm that the Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments, is alone the only infallible, inspired Word of God, and that its authority is ultimate, final, and eternal. It cannot be added to, subtracted from, or superseded in any regard. The Bible is the source of all doctrine, instruction, correction, and reproof. It contains all that is needed for guidance in godliness and practical Christian conduct.
Only One God
We believe that there is only One God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and, God the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious Blood of Jesus Christ. The Word of God declares clearly that salvation is a free gift of God, based on the merits of the death of His Son, and is appropriated by faith. Salvation is effected by personal repentance, belief in the Lord Jesus (justification), and personal acceptance of Him into one’s life as Lord and Savior (regeneration). The new life in Christ includes the privileges of adoption and inheritance in the kingdom of God’s beloved Son. Salvation is an act of free will in response to God’s personal love for mankind. It is predestined only in the sense that God, through His omniscience, foreknew those who would choose Him.
The vision of SMAC of Lindenhurst is to provide a Christ-centered supportive learning environment in which ALL students achieve their highest potential through the collective efforts of students, teachers, parents, church and the community. It is our aim to develop all students as literate thinking problem solvers who are prepared to be productive and purposeful citizens with the gospel of Jesus Christ as their moral/ethical compass; and to arm the with Word of God to ultimately have a positive impact in this world to the glory of God and the advancement of His Kingdom.
SMCA's mission is to partner with families in the education of minds and the transformation of hearts to the glorify of God. As a private elementary school, we provide every student with rigorous learning experiences coupled with the expectation of high student achievement; to implement a creative curriculum that is rich in reading, math, engaged activities, technology, and that is inclusive of the needs and aspirations of our students and families.
