The athletic program at Bethel Christian Academy exists for the purpose of developing physical, personal, and spiritual skills of the student athlete that will have lifelong benefits. In providing opportunities for interscholastic competition, the athletic department seeks to support the overall mission of the school, and to promote the Biblical ideal that everything should be done to glorify God (1 Cor. 10:31). In the context of athletic activity, the student is exposed to many spiritual concepts including the importance of self-discipline (1 Cor. 9:27), respect for others (Eph. 4:32), striving for excellence (Col. 3:23), time management (Eph. 5:16) and submission to authority (Rom. 13:2).
