Here at United Brethren in Christ Church, we are part of the denomination of the United Brethren in Christ. The United Brethren church consists of about 500 churches in 14 countries, with a total membership of around 47,000. About two-thirds of the churches are in the United States, where it all started. Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana account for most of the American churches, though we have churches scattered all around the country--Florida, California, Washington, Idaho, New York, and elsewhere. Together, all of the churches in the United States comprise a "national conference" called the Church of the United Brethren in Christ, USA. Its headquarters is located in Huntington, Ind., on property adjoining the church-owned Huntington University.
I am so glad that you are interested in learning more about United Brethren in Christ Academy. Please feel free to come by or call if you have any questions. I believe in Christian education and at UBICA that’s what your child will get. An education that not only has a strong core curriculum in Math, English, Spelling/Vocabulary, Science, and Social Studies but also teaches Godly character and Christian values. We believe that we are educating the leaders of tomorrow and we want those leaders to look to God for guidance in their decision making. Proverbs 22:6 tells us “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it”. We would love the opportunity to be a part of your child’s development and look forward to working with them in the future.

Come by and check us out.
■Evangelical. Theologically, we enjoy solid evangelical credentials.
■Not huge. We have about 200 churches in the United States. Being huge has its advantages, but that’s not who we are.
■International. We include churches in 18 countries, and a presence in a number of others.
■Welcoming. We gladly link arms with other Christian denominations, organizations, and groups to accomplish Christ’s mission.
■Church-focused. We’re not big on denominational stuff. The local church is where things happen.
■Averse to hangups. We take stands where necessary, but avoid areas where Christians can legitimately disagree. We don’t like to scare people off or fight each other.
■Historic. We’ve been around for nearly 250 years. In fact, we were the first new denomination to begin in the New World. For whatever that’s worth.
