Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith

1. We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament as being verbally inspired by God and inerrant and infallible in the original writings, and that they are of supreme and final authority.

2. We believe in One God eternally existing in one essence, yet co-equal persons, the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit and that Jesus Christ, the Son, was begotten by God, conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born to the virgin Mary.

3. We believe that mankind was created in the image of God, sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death, but spiritual death, which is separation from God, and that human beings are born with a sinful nature.

4. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the basis of His shed blood.

5. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, His ascension into heaven, His present life there as Prophet, Priest and King over us and the blessed hope and the personal, visible return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

6. We believe that all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again by the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God and heirs of eternal life. We believe we are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, to the glory of God alone.

7. We believe in the existence of a personal devil, who is still working in the world to destroy the souls of men and that he and all his angels and all who do not receive Christ as their personal Savior will eternally perish in the lake of fire.

9. We believe in the Church, whose mission it is to preach the Scriptures to all the world, all of its endeavors being guided by a parity/plurality of elders and supported by the wise stewardship of God's people. We believe that the sacraments of the Church, given by the Lord, are Baptism and the Lord's Table (Communion) and are to be administered by the church.

10. We believe our role as educators is to be in loco parentis, "in the place of the parent." We believe that parents are responsible to educate their children in the Lord. We believe that educators must be the delegates of the parents, assisting them in the education of their children, but never usurping their God-given parental prerogative.
