We are thankful to have many dedicated and faithful people who have given their time to work with our athletes not only on the court, but also in their spiritual lives. It is our goal to teach godly everyday Christian living and incorporate this in our sports program. While winning a championship is great, winning Christian character is the highest award we can achieve in a season.

The purpose of the sports program is never to exceed Christian education, but to help the process of Christian education. The coaches play an important role in the player’s lives. They teach the athletes how to compete and to be successful as part of a team. The players will grow much faster as Christians and athletes if the players respect and follow their leadership.

Philosophy of Athletics

Open Door Christian Academy believes that participation in an interscholastic sports program gives the student the opportunity to not only exercise his body, but also to put into practice the Christian character training and spiritual principles he has received at home, in church, and in the classroom. The goals of the athletic program are the same as the goals for Open Door Christian Academy. Biblical principles for living and the building of Christian character in the lives of our athletes are of the utmost importance.

1 Corinthians 10:31
“Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.”
