History

Meadowbrook Christian School was founded as a ministry of Christ Wesleyan Church of Milton in.  Rev. Russell “Pop” Davis felt a call from God to bring a traditional school experience delivered in a Christian atmosphere to our region. Along with his wife Frances, their son, Rev. Arlie Davis and his wife Sharon, Meadowbrook Christian opened its doors in August 1982 with 72 students.

Today, facilities have grown to meet the needs of a student body of about 400 students in preschool (age 3) through grade twelve.  Students come from 19 different school districts from 6 counties and more than 70 regional churches are represented among our constituents.  Since its’ inception, more than 400 alumni are impacting their communities as leaders and participating citizens.

In 2013, Meadowbrook Christian School became the first private Christian School in a sixty-mile radius to earn accreditation.  With credibility from the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools as well as the Association of Christian Schools International, MCS is committed to continuous school improvement.

Statement of Faith

We believe in the inspiration and authority of the Bible as God’s Word to man. The Bible is the complete, inerrant Word of God.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ; His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory.

We believe in the fall of man, the need of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ and the resurrection of all, to eternal life or eternal damnation.

We believe in the spiritual relationship of all believers in Jesus Christ, living a life of righteous works, separated from the world, witnessing His saving grace through the ministry of the Holy Spirit.

We believe that a work in our hearts completed by the Holy Spirit can present us pure and blameless before the Father through Jesus Christ and enable us to live our life separate from sin and with perfect love toward our fellow man.
