Statement of Faith

In Word and Deed

As Christians, our goal is to obey Scripture and, whether in word or deed, to do all to the glory of God. One end of all Bible-centered education is to grow in wisdom and virtue. Our goal is to work with parents to maintain high standards of Biblical behavior—to love God with our whole heart, soul, strength, and mind, and to love our neighbor as ourselves.

We Believe:

  • The Bible (66 books), in its original text, is the only inspired (God-breathed), infallible, inerrant Word of God. The Bible contains the standard after which we are to model our lives. --John 1:1; Romans 15:4; II Peter 1:21; II Timothy 3:16-17

  • There is one God who is eternally existent in three equal persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God is perfectly holy, righteous and sovereign. --John 1:1-5, 10:30, 17:1-5; Philippians 2:6-11; Colossians 2:9-10; Hebrews 1:3

  • The Creation of man was a direct act of God, not evolution. --Genesis 1:26-27

  • In the virgin birth and full deity of Jesus Christ. --Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:26-35

  • Man is sinful by nature. --Romans 3:23, 5:12

  • In the vicarious death of Jesus Christ alone for our sins. --Romans 4:25; Hebrews 9:22

  • God's love for mankind was the motivation for Christ to come and die for us. --John 3:16; Romans 5:8

  • In His bodily resurrection. --Luke 24:5-7, 24:37-43; John 20:27

  • Jesus is the ONLY way to eternal salvation. Salvation from sin is by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ. --Acts 16:31; John 3:36, 14:6; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; Acts 16:31

  • The enabling power of the Holy Spirit is necessary to live the Christian life. --John 6:63-65, 16:13-15; Acts 2:4

  • In the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death. --Genesis 1:26-27; Jeremiah 1:5; Psalm 139:13; Psalm 8:4-7; Exodus 20:13; Amos 1:13; II Kings 17:17-18; Psalm 106; Proverbs 24:11-12; Isaiah 1:16

  • The marriage of one man and one woman is a sacred institution. Marriage and families are ordained and defined by God at creation. --Genesis 1:27-28, 2:20-24; Malachi 2:14-16; Matthew 19:4-6

  • Parents have the God-given responsibility for the care and training of their children. --Proverbs 22:6; Deuteronomy 6:4-7; Psalm 84; Ephesians 6
