GOD- WE BELIEVE there is one living and true God, the creator of the universe (Ex 15:11; Is. 45:11;

Jer. 27:5). He is revealed in the unity of the Godhead as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy

Spirit, who are equal in every divine perfection (Ex. 15:11; Matt. 28:19; II Cor. 13:14).

JESUS CHRIST- WE BELIEVE God the Son is the Savior of the world. Born of the virgin Mary (Matt. 1:18;

Luke 1:26-35), He declared His deity among men (John 1:14, 18; Matt. 9:6), died on the cross as the only

sacrifice for sin (Phil. 2:6-11), arose bodily from the grave (Luke 24:6,7, 24-26; I Cor. 15:3-6), and

ascended back to the Father (Acts 1: 9-11; Mark 16:19). He is at the right hand of the Father,

interceding for believers (Rom. 8:34; Heb. 7:25) until He returns to rapture them from the world (Acts

1:11; I Thess. 4:16-18).

SCRIPTURE- WE BELIEVE the Scriptures are God’s inerrant revelation, complete in the Old and New

Testaments, written by divinely inspired men as they were moved by the Holy Spirit (II Tim. 3:16; II

Peter 1:21).

CREATION- WE BELIEVE God created all things for His own pleasure and glory, as revealed in the biblical

account of creation (Gen. 1; Rev. 4:11; John 1:2,3; Col.1:16). God created man in His own image (Gen.


WE BELIEVE as the crowning work of His creation, God created humankind (male and female) in His own

image (Psa.8; Gen.1:27; 2:7). Consequently, every person from conception is of inherent dignity and

worth and merits the respect of all other persons (Psa. 51:5; Psa. 139:13-16; Gen. 9:6; Matt. 10:28-31;

Jam. 3:9).

WE BELIEVE God created marriage (Gen. 1:27-28; 2:23-24). Jesus Christ declared the creator’s intention

for marriage to be the inseparable and exclusive union between a man and a woman (natural man and

natural woman) (Matt. 19:4-6; Mark 10:6-9). Marriage testifies of the union between Christ and the

church (Eph. 5:31-32; Rom 1:25-27).

SALVATION- WE BELIEVE in the totally depraved and lost condition of man by nature (Jer. 17:9; Rom.

3:23). We believe salvation is the gracious work of God whereby He delivers undeserving sinners from

sin and its results (Matt. 1:21; Eph. 2:8,9). We believe all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ as

personal Savior are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God (John 3:5,6; Rom.

3:21-30; Gal. 4:4-7). We believe in the security of the believer – once saved, always saved (John 3:16).

RESURRECTION- WE BELIEVE after Jesus returns, all of the dead will be raised bodily, each in his own

order: the righteous dead in “the resurrection of life” and the wicked dead in “the resurrection of

damnation” (John 5:24-29; I Cor. 15:20-28).

WE BELIEVE heaven is the eternal home of the redeemed (John 14:1-3) who, in their glorified bodies

(I Cor. 15:51-58), will live in the presence of God forever (I Thess. 4:17) in ultimate blessing (Rev. 21, 22).

Hell is the place of eternal punishment and suffering (Luke 16:19-31) for the devil, his angels (Matt.

25:41), and the unredeemed (Rev. 20:10-15).

UNITY- WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (I Cor. 12: 12-17; Rom. 8:9;

Gal. 3:26-28).

This statement is of utmost importance to our school and serves as the foundation of all we do.
