Statement of Faith

Basis: The basis of the School shall be the Word of God as interpreted by the following statement of faith:

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21-22; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 3:16; John 5:39)
  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 Corinthians 8:6; Malachi 3:6; John 1: 1-3,14; John 10:30; John 15:26)
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:27-35; John 1:1,14, 20; Romans 1:3-6; Romans 3:25; Romans 6:9; Galatians 4:4; Philippians 2:6; 1 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 1:1-2; Hebrews 9:14; 1 John 2:2)
  • We believe that for salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. (John 6:44; Ephesians 1:13; Ephesians 2:4-9; 1 Peter 3:18; Titus 3:5-7)
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (John 15:26; Galatians 5:16-18; 1 Corinthians 6:11; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; Romans 8:1-11)
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (2 Corinthians 5:10; Ecclesiastes 7:14; Romans 14:12; 2 Thessalonians 1:9; Hebrews 9: 27; Acts 24:15; 1 Corinthians 15:51-57; I Thessalonians 4: 15-18; 2 Timothy 4:11)
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (I John 3:16; Galatians 6:10; 1 Corinthians 12:13; 1 John 5:11; 1 Peter 3:8; Ephesians 4:1-6, 13-16)
  • We believe that God has established marriage as an exclusive relationship between one man and one woman and that all intimate sexual activity outside the marriage relationship, whether heterosexual, homosexual, or otherwise, is immoral and therefore sin. (Gen. 2:24-25, Ex. 20:14, 17, 22:19, Lev. 18:22-23, 20:13, 15-16, Matt. 19:4-6, 9, Rom. 1:18-31, 1 Cor. 6:9-10, 15-20, 1 Tim. 1:8-11; Jude 7); We believe that God created the human race male and female and that all conduct with the intent to adopt a gender other than one’s birth gender is immoral and therefore sin. (Gen. 1:27; Deut. 22:5)
  • We believe that because God created all human life it is of inestimable worth and to be valued and protected in all its dimensions from conception through natural death. (Ps. 139).
  • We believe in the believer’s baptism as a public witness and identification with Christ in obedience to the instructions in God’s Word.  (Matt 28 : 29, Acts 2 : 41-42 and 18 : 8)
  • We believe in the partaking in the emblems of the Lord’s Supper as a memorial of the suffering and death of our Lord Jesus and in anticipation of His second coming.  (Acts 2 : 42 and I Cor 11 : 23-26)
  • We believe in the baptism and gifts of the Holy Spirit for the edification of the Body of  Christ. (I Cor 1 : 22, 13 : 8 and 14 : 21-22)
  • We believe in the spiritual relationship of all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, living a life of righteousness, separated from the world, and witnessing of His saving grace through the ministry of the Holy Spirit.  (Rom 12 : 1-2 and Acts 2.)

This Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inerrant and inspired Word of God, and speak with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind. For purposes of this school’s faith, doctrine, educational philosophy, beliefs, core values, policies, practices, and discipline, the Board of Directors has final interpretive authority on the meaning and application of the Bible.
