Partnering with Families
Educating Christian Leaders
Building Futures on Christ
Statement of Beliefs:
At East Martin Christian School, we believe and teach that God has given us His Word, the Bible, so we may better understand Him and study the redemptive history He has laid out from the beginning of time. The Bible is infallible and teaches us how to live before God and among all His creation. God intentionally created us, either male or female, to be relational both with Himself and others, and instituted a family order that dictates that one man and one woman shall commit to one another and become one flesh. Children are to be taught the morals of God described to us in His Word and thus be equipped to live a life that honors Him.
EMCS was established in September 1942 by a group of Christian parents who wanted a Christ-centered education for their children. When it opened, EMCS consisted of two classrooms and an office. Throughout the years, as enrollment grew, additional classrooms were added. In 1998, a large gymnasium was built, not only to support educational needs, but also to serve as a gathering place for community events, programs, and activities. Today, EMCS has over 8 classrooms, a music and band room, an art room, a library, and several childcare rooms. We can proudly say that over 1,000 students have graduated from EMCS. We continue to partner with parents to continue what was begun in 1942: providing a Christ-centered education for students. We’re thankful for God’s faithfulness and provision for nearly 80 years.
Building Futures on Christ
Know by Heart
At EMCS, we take seriously our calling to teach each child that all things belong to Christ, including each of us. In fact, Christ knows us each by heart. We want each student to know this as well.

“I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalm 139:14a
As this verse states, we believe each child is wonderfully made with unique gifts and abilities. Because of this, EMCS offers different levels of academic, social/behavioral, spiritual, and emotional support for all of our students. We celebrate the uniqueness of each child and we encourage them in the gifts God has given them. We are committed to meeting the learning needs of all of our students. Therefore, we offer academic support, which is assisted by our partnership with All Belong.
