Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Academy Christian Church?

We are a non-denominational Christian church that welcomes people from all ages and backgrounds. We believe the Bible is our ultimate authority for faith and practice here. We want to help people encounter God so they can experience Him today and forever.

What is a nondenominational church?

A church not affiliated with a particular religious denomination. For Academy Christian Church, this means no denominational doctrine or rules. This means that ACC is interested in connecting you directly with Jesus, studying the Bible and following its teachings, and having members who serve one another and the Colorado Springs community.

Are all the services the same?

We have three service times on Sunday at our Northside location, and one service time at our Westside location. Our Northside 8:00 am service features Traditional style worship with hymns and a choir. All of our other services are Contemporary style worship with a praise band and contemporary music. Each service includes the same message from the Bible to encourage and challenge us throughout the week. Nursery, Preschool and Elementary children’s programming is available during all Contemporary services. Click here for our addresses and directions.
