Our Belief Statement
The Bible – We believe the Bible is the Word of God. Comprised of two testaments and limited to sixty-six independent books, the Bible stands as the standard of Truth for our school. As God’s word - literally breathed into existence - it is True, without error, and trustworthy in all that it teaches. (2 Timothy 3:16, 17);
The Trinity – We believe that our God is One so we are monotheistic. We also believe that He exists and has revealed Himself in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Therefore, we are Trinitarian (John 14 – 16);
Jesus Christ – As the only begotten Son of the Father, Jesus Christ is eternal with the Father and became flesh to reveal His glory. Jesus’ human life is revealed in the Gospels and His teaching, suffering, death, resurrection, and ascension accomplished the will of the Father, Who was reconciling Himself to the world through His work. We believe that Jesus currently reigns as King, serves as our high Priest to the Father (therefore, no one can come to the Father except through the Son - John 14:6), and will return to put an end to sin and establish the New Heavens and New Earth;
Mankind – As revealed in Genesis 1 and 2, Mankind was directly created on the sixth day by God. Adam, the first man, was bodily fashioned from dust and his soul was breathed into him by God. Man’s constitution – further understood as “male” and “female” and thus there is a recognition that there is an important distinction in the male and female - was created in God’s Image. Man fell from this state of innocence by disobeying God’s word and suffered separation from God. In Adam’s sin, all mankind fell and are dead to God (Romans 5). Man is only redeemed from his sinful nature by the transformational work of the Holy Spirit at salvation (Ephesians 2:1-5);
Salvation: being a “Christian” – “Christian” was first used in Acts 11:26 to describe the early followers of Jesus, meaning “Christ ones” or “little Christs.” Any man, woman, or child becomes a Christian when they believe that Jesus Christ died for their sin and was raised from the dead. On the basis of faith alone in Jesus Christ any person is rescued from the dominion of darkness and transferred into the kingdom of His beloved Son (Colossians 1:13). This redemption results in the forgiveness of sin. (Colossians 1:14). The work of reconciling sinful man to God was completed in the work of Jesus Christ. No human effort - church attendance or membership, baptism, communion, Mass, the Lord’s Supper or any other religious activity - can add anything to that work which will earn favor with God.
