Currently: PreK-6th Grade
Future Expansion Plan: K-12 (& beyond) Christian school pursuing national and international accreditations with Christ-centered academic excellence.
Our school motto: Soli Deo Gloria, which is Latin for "Glory to God Alone".
We at CAI school in Asia strive for academic excellence with a strong biblical foundation all for the glory of God. Our purpose is a to train, educate, nurture, and disciple children in Christ with His Love and Truth. We believe learning is a process and should be fun, challenging, innovative, creative, interactive, and based upon the Word of God.
The love and fear of God is the beginning of all knowledge and truth (Matt. 22:37-40; Deut. 6:9-11; Prov. 1:7). For Jesus Christ said, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no one comes to the Father, except by Me." (John 14:6) By God's grace, we strive to live and teach an unconditional love for all people recognizing everyone is equally created in the image of God (Gen. 1:27; Matt. 22:37-40; Lev. 19:18). We desire to assist parents and families by partnering with the Body of Christ in the education and training process of their children according to the Scriptures to become disciples for Christ shining brightly in the world. In Christ, we live and move and have our being. Jesus Christ is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. Thus, together we will deeply explore the subjects of science, social & cultural studies, environment, math, classical & biblical languages, arts, music, and other academic spheres with a Christ-centered biblical worldview. We teach all classes in the English language. Furthermore, we teach additional national languages, Biblical Hebrew & Greek languages enabling each student with the opportunity to grow in Christ, gain a deeper understanding of the Scriptures, and be thoroughly equipped in fulfilling the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20). In this pursuit, we will live and teach the Five Solas (Latin for “phrases” or “slogans”) of the Protestant Reformation summarizing the Reformers’ theological convictions about the essentials of Christianity:
1. Sola Scriptura (“Scripture alone”): The Bible alone is our highest authority.
2. Sola Fide (“faith alone”): We are saved through faith alone in Jesus Christ.
3. Sola Gratia (“grace alone”): We are saved by the grace of God alone.
4. Solus Christus (“Christ alone”): Jesus Christ alone is our LORD and Savior.
5. Soli Deo Gloria (“to the glory of God alone”): We live for the glory of God alone.
We believe that the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men of God "were moved by the Holy Spirit" to write the very words of Scripture. The Bible is therefore without error (inerrant) in its original manuscripts. God has supernaturally preserved the Bible, and it is the sole and final authority for faith and life, providing encouragement, guidance, comfort and instruction for training in righteousness (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:20-21).
The Godhead (Trinity)
We believe in one true God eternally existing in three distinct persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) each of Whom is fully and equally God; possesses all of the divine nature and attributes, and is totally worthy of our worship and service (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; John 1:14, John 10:30; 2 Cor. 13:14).
God the Father
We believe that God the Father is the first person of the Trinity and is the eternal, unchanging all-powerful, all-knowing, all-wise, all-loving, completely just and perfectly holy, sovereign Ruler and Sustainer of the universe. He is the Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the Father of all true believers (Gen. 1:1; Eph. 4:6; John 1:12-13, John 5:19-21, John 17:1-5; Isa. 40:21-28, Isa. 43:10-13, Isa. 46:8-11; Rom. 8:14-16).
God the Son
We believe that Jesus Christ is the second person of the Trinity and is the only begotten eternal Son of God Who became flesh to reveal God to man, to fulfill prophecy, and to become the Savior of the lost world. In becoming man Jesus did not cease in any way to be God so that He is fully God and fully man inseparably united in one person forever. Jesus was miraculously conceived by the Holy Spirit; born of the Virgin Mary; lived a sinless life; died on the cross as the substitutionary, all-sufficient atoning sacrifice for all of the sins of all men of all time; was buried; bodily rose from the dead; physically ascended into heaven in His glorified, resurrected body; is seated at the right hand of the Father performing His ministry of intercession; will return in the air to claim His Bride the Church; and will come again to earth in bodily form, personally and visibly, to conclude human history and consummate God's eternal plan by executing divine judgments and ushering in His Millennial Kingdom reign to be followed by His Final Judgment with the Book of Life and the Lake of Fire, fulfilling with His eternal state on the throne of God forever shining over the New Heaven, New Earth, New Jerusalem, the River of Life and Tree of Life eternally dwelling with His Bride (John 1:1,14,18; John 3:16; Luke 1:30-35; Phil. 2:5-8; Col. 2:3,9; Mark 10:45; Acts 2:22-24; John 1:29; Rom. 3:25-26; Heb. 10:5-14; 1 Pet. 2:24, 1 Pet. 3:18; John 20:20; Phil. 3:20-21; Heb. 1:3; Rom. 8:34; 1 John 2:1; Acts 1:11; Heb. 9:28; 1 Thes. 4:13-18; 2 Thes. 2:7; Matt. 24:44; Rev. 19:11-21; Rev. 21-22).
God the Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity Who specially came into the world on the day of Pentecost to glorify Christ and to enable men to appropriate the salvation wrought by Christ. He is the primary agent for the conviction of sin and for regeneration. Simultaneously with salvation, the Holy Spirit imparts new life, baptizes the believer into the body of Christ (His Church), permanently indwells the believer, and securely seals the believer unto the day of redemption. The Holy Spirit fills (directs and controls) those believers who are yielded to Him, enables believers to bear fruit, and empowers believers to live a life free from sin's dominion. We also believe that the Holy Spirit gives spiritual gifts to believers for the purpose of edifying the church in accordance with the teachings of Scripture (1 Cor. 13:8, 1 Cor. 14:22; John 16:7-8; 1 Cor. 6:19, 1 Cor. 12:13; Eph. 1:13-14, Eph. 4:30; Gal. 5:16-17, Gal. 22-23; Rom. 8:5-13; 1 Pet. 4:10-11; Rom. 12:3-8).
We believe that man was created in the image of God by direct act of God and did not come into being as the result of evolution. Man was created to glorify God, worship and serve Him, and have fellowship with Him. Man fell through sin by disobeying God, thus incurring both physical and spiritual death (Eternal Hell and future Eternal Lake of Fire), which alienated him from God. Man's nature was thus corrupted and he is utterly lost, "dead in trespasses and sins," and totally incapable of saving himself and coming back into right relationship with God by his own merit or effort (Gen. 1:26, Gen. 2:6,17, Gen. 3:17-24; Isa. 59:1-2; Rom. 3:9-19,23, Rom. 5:8; Luke 18:26-27; Eph. 2:13, Rev. 20:11-15).
We believe that Satan is the instigator of evil and a real spirit being, not simply the personification of evil. He is a fallen angel who, under the sovereign permission of God, has been given temporary rulership of the earth. He was utterly defeated at the Cross of Christ, but the execution of his final judgment has been postponed by God until after the Millennial Kingdom when he will be cast into the eternal lake of fire. In the meantime, he deceives the world and seeks to establish his counterfeit kingdom on earth to discredit and blaspheme God and to tempt, accuse, attack and destroy believers. He can be resisted by the believer through faith and reliance on the power of the Holy Spirit (Gen. 3:1-5; Isa. 14:12-17; Ezek. 28:11-19; Job 1-2; 1 John 5:19; 2 Cor. 11:14; 1 Tim. 3:6; 1 Pet. 5:8-9; James 4:7; Rev. 12:9, Rev. 20:1-3, Rev. 20:7-10).
We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for forgiveness of sins and salvation, which is the free gift of God's grace. Salvation is effected by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit and cannot be secured by man's works or personal merit. Salvation is only appropriated by a person placing his faith in the finished work of Christ. Repentance is a turning toward God and away from sin and is a part of but not separate from believing faith. "The Gospel is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes" and those who receive Jesus Christ by faith are born again, have their sins forgiven, become children of God, are a new creation in Christ, and "are sealed by the Holy spirit unto the day of redemption" being kept by the power of God (Eph. 1:7:13-14; John 1:12-13, John 3:1-7, John 14-16; 2 Cor. 5:17; Rom. 1:16, Rom. 10:9-10; Eph. 2:8-10; Rom. 8:14-17, Rom. 31-39; John 10:27-29, Rom. 14:6; Acts 26:20; 1 Pet. 1:3-5).
The Christian Life
We believe that every Christian should live for Christ and not for himself and should, by the power of the indwelling Spirit, allow Christ to manifest His life through him to God's glory. By ever increasing obedience to the Word of God, each believer should mature and progressively become more like Jesus Christ testifying to the true perseverance of the saints. In the power of the Spirit, each believer should live a holy life; not fulfill the lusts of the flesh; exercise his spiritual gifts to build up the body of Christ; witness for Christ; pray without ceasing; be personally involved in making disciples to fulfill the Great Commandments and Great Commission; perform good works by the Spirit and bear fruit to the glory of God and His Kingdom (Gal. 2:20; 1 Pet. 1:15-16, 1 Pet. 2:11; 2 Cor. 5:14-15; Rom. 6:11-13; Rom. 8; Rom. 12, Eph. 2:10, Eph. 4:11-12, Eph. 4:22-24; 1 Thess. 5:12-24; 1 Pet. 4:10-11; Acts 1:8; Matt. 6, Matt. 22:37-40, Matt. 28:18-20; Col. 1:10; John 15).
We believe that the Church is the Body and Bride of Christ of which Jesus is the Head and Bridegroom, whose members are those who have truly received Christ by faith. The local church is a tangible expression of the body of Christ in a particular location exercising Baptism and the Lord's Supper. Since all true members of the Body of Christ are united in Christ by the same Spirit, they should live in love, harmony and unity, being intent on the same purpose and accepting those diverse New Testament church practices which are based on a exegetical sound interpretation of the Scriptures, which do not relate to substantive foundational doctrinal matters, and which do not in practice cause disunity or false teachings or hinder the ministry in Christ. The purpose of the Church is to make Christ known to lost souls and to make disciples, serve His Kingdom and glorify God on earth (Acts 1:8; Matthew 26:17-30, Luke 22:7-23, Mark 14:12-26, Acts 2:37-47, 1 Cor. 11:23-34; 1 Cor.12-13, Eph. 1:20-23, Eph. 4:1-6, Eph. 4:12-16; Matt. 28:18-20; John 17; Col. 1:24-29, Rev. 19:7-10, Rev. 21-22).
