Our Story

In 1967, a middle school, called Walnut Creek Christian Academy (WCCA) began to expand its program by adding high school grades nine and ten, but by 1968, the school realized it wouldn't be able to accommodate a full high school program. The governing board of WCCA sought the support of its denomination, the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches, and established a new school called Regular Baptist High School. In 1978, it was renamed to the school we have today, Berean Christian High School. For seven years the school continued to grow and operate on the Morello Baptist Church Campus. In 1985, the board purchased the current site on El Divisadero Ave in Walnut Creek. The current Board of Directors consists of representatives from three of the original founding churches and two cooperating churches.

Today, Berean thrives in its growth and continued excellence in delivering quality Biblically-based Christian education. It is known and respected by both the Christian and secular communities for its excellence, leadership, and integrity.

Statement of Faith

Berean Christian High School (BCHS) is a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and subscribes to its statement of faith.

  1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant1 Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21). 1

  2. We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30).

  3. We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33), His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35), His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11), His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9), His Resurrection (John 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:4), His Ascension to the right hand of God (Mark 16:19), His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11).

  4. We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature, and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ, and that only by God's grace and through faith alone are we saved (John 3:16–19, 5:24; Romans 3:23, 5:8–9; Ephesians 2:8–10; Titus 3:5).

  5. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of condemnation (John 5:28–29).

  6. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 12:12–13, Galatians 3:26–28).

  7. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13–14; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19–20; Ephesians 4:30, 5:18).

  8. We believe that the term marriage has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture (Genesis 2:18–25). We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other (1 Corinthians 6:18, 7:2–5; Hebrews 13:4). We believe that God's command is that there be no sexual intimacy outside of or apart from marriage between a man and a woman.

  9. We believe that God wonderfully foreordained and immutably created each person as either male or female in conformity with their biological sex. These two distinct yet complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God (Genesis 1:27).
