Statement of Faith

  1. Belief in the authority and reliability of the Bible as the only inspired and infallible Word of God. The Bible is the complete and final revelation of God concerning all matters of faith, truth and practice. All truth is God's truth.

  2. Belief in the omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent God who is sovereign over all. His sovereignty is seen in acts of creation, salvation and continual care.

  3. Belief in the Trinity of the one true God, the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, atonement for our sins by His blood sacrifice, His bodily resurrection, ascension, His personal return in power and glory.

  4. Belief in the Holy Spirit as teacher of God's Truth and as giver of new life in Christ and who unites all believers in Christ.

  5. Belief that man is the crown of God's creation. God endowed man with His image and gave him the responsibly to rule the earth.

  6. Belief that sin has severely broken the relationships between God and man, man and himself, man and other men, and man and nature.

  7. Belief that Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, came to earth to offer cleansing for man's sin and to heal these broken relationships through His cross.

  8. Belief that man, cleansed through Christ, must seek to live out his life in total commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord of life, which involves reestablishing all original relationships God intended for him.

  9. Belief in a need for clearly defined goals and objectives centered in the Word of God for the development of the whole person (spiritual, mental, emotional, social and physical) and for the establishing of proper priorities in an individual's life.

  10. Belief that God established the family as the basic unit of society. Parents are ultimately responsible for the instruction and discipline of their children. The Christian school is simply an extension of the educational process of the family and the church providing a supportive basis of encouragement to the family and the church.

  11. Belief that a personal commitment to Jesus Christ and God's Word is necessary for those who are involved in the educational process (faculty, staff, administration and board).

  12. Belief a true Christian is one who has received Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord by faith. We believe good works to be the inevitable result of true faith.
