Although parents, students, and family members may have differing Biblical perspectives,
we adhere to the following statement of faith:
I. We believe in the Divine verbal inspiration, infallibility, integrity, finality, and sole-sufficiency of the Bible as the Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16)
II. We believe in the Holy Trinity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - three persons co-equal in substance, power, and eternity in the unity of the Godhead. (Matthew 28:19, John 15:26)
III. We believe that the Godhead executes the great work of redemption
- The love and grace of the Father. (Romans 5:15)
- The Redemption by and through the Son:
a. His Incarnation, Virgin Birth, Sinless Nature and Life, and His infallibility as Teacher. (Matthew 1:18, Hebrews 4:15)
b. His substitutionary and atoning death by the shedding of His blood on the cross.
c. His bodily resurrection - actual and real; His ascension into Heaven; His High Priestly work there.
(Matthew 28:6, Mark 16:19, Luke 24:51, Hebrews 4:15)
- Regeneration or the New Birth by the Holy Spirit and His indwelling of every believer through baptism.
(Acts 2:37-38, John 3:3)
IV. We believe that Salvation and Justification of sinners is a gift of grace through the finished work of Christ. (Romans 3:24)
V. We believe in the Sanctification of believers: First, having been sanctified by the offering of the body of Christ once for all; second, being sanctified by the Holy Spirit and the Word; third, to be sanctified and glorified at the coming of Christ. (Romans 15:16, I Corinthians 1:2, I Peter 1:2)
VI. We believe that those who come to God through faith in, repentance of sin, confession of Christ as the Son of God, and are given eternal life and shall not perish, as is the promise of His Word.
(John 3:16, Acts 2:7-38, John 14:6)
VII. We believe in New Testament Baptism of believers by immersion, which is the sign God’s people receive in the New Testament pointing to the atoning work of Jesus Christ showing forth the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and our identification with Him. (Romans 6:1-7)
VIII. We believe in the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper: the fruit of the vine signifying His shed blood, the broken bread signifying His broken body, showing forth His death until He comes, this being the duty and privilege of every believer. (Matthew 26:27-29)
IX. We believe that the first day of the week, Sunday, is the Lord’s Day commemorating the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 2:42, Matthew 28:1)
X. We believe in the Resurrection of the Body, both of the just and the unjust: the just at the coming of our Lord, and the unjust at the final judgment and eternal punishment of the same. (I Corinthians 15)
