Dear Considering Homeschooling, New to Homeschool and Homeschooling Families:

We live in an exciting time for homeschoolers. In fact, I think there has never been a better time to homeschool. Never before in the history of the world have parents had access to such a plethora of excellent educational materials, never before has there been such easy availability of technology to aide in home education. The abundance of homeschool support groups and growing public acceptance make homeschooling less intimidating. Now, we also have research which shows the good fruit of the homeschool life. For example, we know that by grade 8, the average homeschooled student performs four grade levels above the national average. And, research shows that the parents' education level or lack of teaching degree has no bearing on homeschoolers' achievements.

Most importantly, surveys show that 94% of children homeschooled from a Christian worldview, apart from governmental intrusion, keep their faith in Jesus Christ.  However, research also reveals that 70-89% of children educated in the secular government schools graduate with a secular mindset and no faith in Jesus Christ. 

Finally, let us remember to pray for each other. Homeschooling and even considering homeschooling is a blessing from the Lord, but also requires diligence and yielding to Him. Could you right now ask Jesus to give wisdom and joy to that mom who might be feeling unsure and fearful about bringing her kids home?

Enjoy your visit.

Blessings to you and your child,

OC Home Education Ministry Back to top of page

Mission Statement

To provide inspiration and encouragement to other Christian homeschooling parents through fellowship, prayer and resources made available through this website.Back to top of page


Statement Of Faith

We believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior; that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the inspired and infallible Word of God.  

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension and His personal return in power and glory, and the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. 


Do You Know Jesus?

Our greatest desire is for people to come to know God personally. The simple truth is that there is a God who created you and loves you very much. (Genesis 1:1) He gave us life and deserves our gratitude and love.

We, however, have chosen to disobey Him and sin against Him; all of us have done wrong and failed to do what is right. (Romans 3:23) We may not be more sinful than our neighbor, or we may be far worse than anyone we know, it does not matter. Either way, we are guilty before God. (1 John 1:8)

God is perfect, completely good, always right and fair. He cannot tolerate sin. He cannot simply overlook the fact that we have chosen to disobey Him. The Bible says "the wages of sin is death." (Romans 6:23) This means that the fair payment for our rebellion against God is death. It is the punishment that we deserve.

Jesus, the one and only Son of God, came to earth and lived a perfect sinless life. He was crucified even though He was completely innocent. He received the punishment that we deserved. He was the perfect sacrifice, He was put into our place and took on Himself the sentence of death that should have been ours. (Romans 5:8)

Jesus did not, however, remain dead. After three days, He rose from the grave and later ascended into heaven. He will return for all those who are trusting in Him as their Savior.

Jesus died for you. You can be saved by asking Him for forgiveness from your sins. If you are willing to repent of your sin, He is waiting to forgive you. It doesn't matter what you have done in the past, if you cry out to Jesus for forgiveness, He will not reject you. The word "repent" literally means "to turn away from." You need to look at your life, admit that you are a sinner, genuinely desire to turn your back on that sin, and ask Him to forgive you. If you do this, He promises to forgive you.

True Christianity is not about attending a particular church, or how your parents raised you, or what country you were born in. Being a Christian means that you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, that He is your Savior. It's not good enough that your priest, pastor, mother, or aunt knows Jesus, you must know Him for yourself. They cannot believe in Him for you, you must believe for yourself. They cannot repent for you, you must repent for yourself.

Jesus is everywhere all the time. He can hear you now if you ask Him for forgiveness. Please turn your life over to Him NOW. Time slips by so quickly, don't miss this opportunity. If you want to pray and ask Jesus to be your Savior, you can say a prayer something like this:

"Jesus, I know that I have sinned against you. I know the truth is that I have sinned by my own choice, and I am the one responsible for it. I know that I have earned punishment from You, and that the fair punishment would be death. Jesus, I believe that You died in my place. Forgive me for my sin. I cannot cover or take my sin away, I am relying totally and only on You. You are the only one who can save me. I reject my sin, I turn away from it, I repent. Come into my life, take away my sin, and show me how to live my life in a way that is right and pleasing to You."

If you have prayed this, YOU ARE SAVED! You are now completely forgiven, a new creation, innocent in the eyes of God. Welcome to the family of God!

It is important for you to start to grow in your relationship with Jesus. Just like any relationship, you need to spend time with someone if you want to know them well. The way to know God is through the Bible.  It's also important to find a church you can attend where they teach the Bible. This will allow you to talk with a pastor who will help explain questions you might have, and it will give you a chance to spend time with other Christians who can encourage you.
