Mission and Beliefs
River City Believers Academy exists to glorify Jesus Christ by partnering with parents to prepare students for real life.
We are a discipleship school, and, as an extension of the Christian home, we are committed to helping students discover the unique God-given gifts as they begin to follow His leading. Our Bible-based, college-preparatory curriculum equips students with critical thinking and reasoning skills, is based in a biblical worldview, and prepares them to serve and lead in today’s changing world.

Program Balance - We will value a balanced program of spiritual training, academics, artistic expression, athletics, and social offerings with an emphasis on critical thinking and applied knowledge consistent with Biblical truth.
Positive Environment - We will value a learning environment that is loving, joyful, and orderly.
Family Involvement - We will value the family as God’s primary instrument for the education of our children and the school as an extension of the home.
Growing Students - We will value students who are learning to love the Lord, are growing in Christ, and are living according to His word.
Christ-like Staff - We will value staff who live according to the Scriptures, love and instruct students effectively, and pursue professional development.
Fiscal Responsibility - We will value maintaining fiscal responsibility and accountability while making Christian education available and affordable to as many students as possible.
Community Support - We will value mutually supportive relationships within our community and seek to enrich others outside of our organization as a witness to the will and purpose of God.
Statement of Faith
River City Believers Academy is a ministry of River City Community Church in San Antonio, and follows the core teachings of that church.
We believe that there is one God, a loving creator eternally existing, revealing Himself in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, who was fully God and fully man.
We believe in Christ's virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary death on our behalf, His physical resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His ultimate, victorious return.
We believe that God created humans for a meaningful relationship with Him, but our willful sin has created a wall of separation between him and God. God sent His son, Jesus, to pay the just death penalty for our sin with His death on the cross. God’s gift of salvation brings forgiveness and eternal life to all who repent and put their faith in Jesus Christ. It removes the separation that sin created and allows us to be reborn into God’s divine nature through the presence of His Holy Spirit.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is empowered and gifted to live a Godly life.
We believe the Bible to be the unique, Spirit-inspired, word of God. It is infallible and authoritative in all that it addresses.
We believe in the eternal resurrection of all people—those who are saved to the resurrection of eternal life, and those who are lost to the resurrection of separation and judgment.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.
