Welcome to Mercy Culture Preparatory. We are so glad we have the opportunity to partner with parents and families in the greatest endeavor of our lives: raising our children! We are grateful for the trust place on us to raise kingdom-driven, world-changing leaders.

Our vision is to take students from corporate encounters with God, to daily personal encounters with God. 

Our mission is to partner with families to develop Kingdom Leaders, by equipping the whole student mind, body, and spirit through presence-driven discipleship. 

This school has been serving the Fort Worth community since 1979, previously operating as Calvary Christian Academy. In 2020, Mercy Culture Church miraculously acquired the property and fully adopted the school. We felt the Lord was prompting us to step into a new identity from conquerors to Royals this past year. Mercy Culture Preparatory or MC Prep for short officially launched August of 2022. 

We are a fully accredited school K-12th. Our primary goal at MC PREP has always been to educate the whole child. We believe God is at the center of all subjects. Our teachers are highly qualified, degreed, and dedicated to train the next generation of young people that have a desire to make an impact in their communities through God’s truth and love.  

As a school, we seek a partnership with parents to help raise students who will impact their culture by instilling in them wisdom, knowledge, righteousness, and a strong Biblical foundation.


Together for our children!

Elements of Culture 

Foundational Beliefs

Mercy Culture Preparatory believes the Bible is to be the infallible word of God, and we teach our students from a Biblical worldview. In Luke 2, the Bible says Jesus grew in wisdom (intellectually), stature (physically), and in favor with God (spiritually) and Man (socially). At Mercy Culture Preparatory, our priority is to teach the whole child - spiritual, intellectual, social, and physical. We believe educating children is a cord of three strands - God, school faculty, and parents. Scripture charges parents with the Biblical duty of educating their children. MC PREP partners with parents to show children the way they should go, so even when they are old they should not depart from God’s way. [Proverbs 22:6, Deuteronomy 6:4-9]

Statement of Faith
Mercy Culture Preparatory bases its existence and operating policies upon principles found in God’s Word.

Mercy Culture Preparatory Believes:

We believe Jesus is the Son of God.
Jesus Christ is eternally God. He was together with the Father and the Holy Spirit from the beginning, and through Him all things were made. For man’s redemption, He left heaven and became incarnate by the Holy Spirit through the Virgin Mary; henceforth, He is forever one Christ with two natures—God and man—in one person.

We believe The Bible is the Word of God.
We affirm that the Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments, is alone the only infallible, inspired Word of God, and that its authority is ultimate, final, and eternal. It cannot be added to, subtracted from, or superseded in any regard. The Bible is the source of all doctrine, instruction, correction, and reproof. It contains all that is needed for guidance in godliness and practical Christian conduct. (Display on screen: II Timothy 3: 16-17).

We believe in the Trinity.
It is the testimony of both the Old and New Testaments and of the Christian Church that God is both One and Triune. The biblical revelation testifies that there is only one God and that He is eternally existent in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. There is one God manifested in three persons: The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Display on screen: I John 5:4-7).

We believe in the Person, gifts and move of the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is God, the Lord and giver of life, who was active in the Old Testament and given to the Church in fullness at Pentecost. He empowers the saints for service and witness, cleanses man from the old nature and conforms us to the image of Christ. The baptism in the Holy Spirit, subsequent to conversion, releases the fullness of the Spirit and is evidenced by the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God that leads and guides us into all truths, and that His gifts are in operation today (Display on screen John 16:23 and I Corinthians 2:12)

We believe in Biblical Marriage.
We believe in unconditional love for everyone while remaining unwavering in our loyalty to God’s Holy word.  We believe that because God our Creator established marriage as a sacred institution between one man and one woman, the idea that marriage is a covenant only between one man and one woman has been the traditional definition of marriage for all of human history. (Display on screen Matthew 19:4-6) 

We believe in having a spiritual covering. Mercy Culture Church is our spiritual covering. Our Foundational Beliefs reflect those of our church. If you would like to learn more about our beliefs follow this link
