- "Building Kingdom Leaders" through spiritual development goes far beyond a few chapel services and Bible class.

Because all truth is God`s truth, we can teach every subject and do all instruction in a way that directs the student`s attention toward Him. This is what is meant by Biblical integration: integrating the truth of God into all aspects of life at Augusta Christian. We seek to Build Kingdom Leaders spiritually through the following:
- Conducting daily devotions with prayer in each class
