What We Believe


In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty and in all things charity (Rupertus Meldenius, 17th Century, sometimes attributed to St. Augustine), “Christian” shall be defined as being in accordance with and in furtherance of the following Statement of Faith (Source: Association of Christian Schools International):
1.       We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God
(2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21).
2.       We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
(Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30).
3.       We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33),
His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35),
His sinless life (Hebrews 4: 15, 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11),
His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9),
His Resurrection (John 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:4),
His Ascension to the right hand of God (Mark 16:19),
His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11).
4.       We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God's grace and through faith alone are we saved (John 3:16–19, 5:24; Romans 3:23, 5:8–9; Ephesians 2:8–10; Titus 3:5).
5.       We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of condemnation (John 5:28–29).
6.       We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 2:12–13, Galatians 3:26–28).
7.       We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13–14; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19–20; Ephesians 4:30, 5:18).
