Apostolic Christian Academy is sponsored by First Apostolic Church and is accredited by the Christian Education Department of the Assemblies of the Lord Jesus Christ, which maintains a national charter with the federal government. ACA currently maintains an “AA” rating, the highest level of accreditation with the ALJC. Tennessee Association of Non-Public Academic Schools (TANAS) grants our other accreditation. TANAS is an approved Private School Accrediting Agency recognized by the Tennessee State Department of Education. Apostolic Christian Academy has a star rating among other Christian, private institutions in their category.
We were visiting the area from Nashville, Tn. and visited the Sunday morning service on 6-24-12. Everyone, including the Pastor, made us feel so welcome. The music & choir were awesome - those people know how to worship!! Such a sweet spirit throughout the service. The preaching by the Pastor really uplifted and encouraged us in some things we were going through at that very time. He certainly heard the voice of the Lord in that sermon! We will come back when we are in the area again. It was such a blessing to be there. God is doing a great work in Maryville through FAC.
After reading the review that called into question the taking of two offerings on Sunday morning I felt the need to clarify what the person who wrote the review failed to mention. The first offering taken on Sunday morning does not stay at our local church. It is a missions offering! Every thing that is given in that offering goes out to help and support many different needs. Some examples are: foreign and home mission works, prisoners friends, local needs that are brought to the attention of the community, such as people who have been displaced by fire or other tragedies, people who are in need of basic needs, just to mention a few. It is disheartening when people can write anything they want for any reason and neglect to get all the facts. The people who call First Apostolic Church home love to give and help others. Is that not what we are called in part to do? We love people and want to be of service in many different areas. As to "putting a burden on the women." I can only speak for myself, I am not looking for the praise of people. I want to please my Lord! What I do with how I worship, speak, act, live, dress is to please God! These things have never been imposed on me or even expected by the people of the church. It is a chosen lifestyle that brings me great joy and wonderful peace. I do not want to live any other way! I feel great sorrow for the people who are so bitter and disappointed with their life that they have to make non factual judgments in order to make themselves feel better. This type of behavior is not of God. First Apostolic Church is a place of healing and restoration where God's anointing is moving to bring healing, peace and joy to peoples lives.
I was saddened by the negative review about Apostolic Christian Academy. Obviously, this person does not have the correct information and has reported something that is false. I have known many young people that have attended and graduated from Apostolic Christian Academy and have gone on to attend various colleges and universities. If students want to excel and continue their education, the staff and administration does everything within their power to help the students and guide them in the right direction. Several of the students that have graduated have received full scholarships. When students leave ACA, they are not only equipped with book knowledge of what they will need to continue their education, but they are also equipped with spiritual and moral knowledge of how to live and serve God and the community.
I wish everyone in our community could attend this great school! They will receive a quality education and be surrounded by teachers and staff that care for these students and pray daily for them. What could be better than that? When my child attended this school, it brought me great comfort to know that her name was mentioned in prayer daily by her teachers. My daughter graduated a few years ago and I am very proud of her accomplishments.
When people are looking for a good Christian school, Apostolic Christian Academy should be the first place they call. I'm sure they will be happy they do! It truly is the Best!
Since students at ACA don't actually complete any legitimate academic work, the student more than likely will fail all of these standardized tests. The only credits that may be accepted are gym, and maybe music, both being non-essential. So, the student has to start from scratch if they need to transfer to any real school.
Almost every student at ACA has to take countless remedial classes to teach them what they never learned in high school. So, to enter real college course they must spend up to a few years first completing remedial courses in all the core areas such as math, science, english, and other applicable areas of study. So, after a student finishes at ACA if they even plan to pursue higher education then they finally start real high school via the remedial classes.
Stay far away and DO NOT even ponder the thought of sending your child to this moral and educational wasteland.
Although, I am a Christian I don't limit myself to just one religions views/theories about God. My children attended the daycare/school at this church & I NEVER had to worry about them. I always knew my kids were being well cared for in a loving environment. The musical program the children present is always powerful & amazing!
I really enjoyed my visit to First Apostolic Church of Maryville. The people were friendly, and it seems that they have alot to offer each age group. The people seemed very sincere in their worship and I found that to be refreshing. I would reccomend it to anyone, give it a try. The one downside I saw was that it is a little crowded, but I think they are in a building program.
I noticed that the one negative review said the church is cultish, yet the commentor said he experienced "the power." This is truly a church where the power of God can be felt by those who seek it and I hope that most people would ask why it can be felt here and not in most other churches. God moves in places where people live lives which please him and have relationship with him. Those who really want to go to heaven will seek to learn God's will and to do those things which please Him. No one preaches at FAC that God will send you to hell for what you wear, yet God does care about what you wear and what you do and those who go to heaven will ultimately be those who find out what the Bible says about those things and do what God wants them to.
If you are hungry for God and are looking for a church which teaches and preaches the Bible and one in which God is obviously well pleased then don't miss a visit to FAC. If you come seeking God you will meet Him here.
If you want to see what a church service is like here visit FACTV.org and watch an archived service.
