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).
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).
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).
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. 1:27).
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).
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 (John3:5,6; Rom. 3:21-30; Gal. 4:4-7).
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).
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.
