statement of faith

Each member of the Board of Directors, each member of the staff of the Corporation, and at least one parent of each family, having accepted Jesus Christ as personal Savior, shall annually subscribe in writing to the following Statement of Faith:

  1. I believe in the one God – the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, John 10:30, John 10:37-38)
  2. I believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures are infallible due to divine inspiration and contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21)
  3. I believe that all people are born with fallen natures and are in need of spiritual regeneration, without which they are eternally lost. (Romans 3:19, 23; John 3:16-19, John 5:24, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5-6)
  4. I believe that Jesus Christ, eternally one with the Father, became incarnate by the virgin birth, died for our sins, arose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and shall return again to establish His Kingdom on earth. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35; Hebrews 4:15, 7:25, 9:12; John 2:11, 11:25; Acts 1:11; Colossians 1:14; Revelation 19:11-16)
  5. I believe that all who repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ are saved from the power of sin, and that by the continuing indwelling of the Holy Spirit, the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. (2 Peter 1:4, 1 Corinthians 3:16, Romans 8:14-16)
  6. I believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved into eternal life and those who are lost into eternal damnation. (John 5:28-29)
  7. I believe that the Church of God is composed of all spiritually regenerated persons, called to a life of righteous works, telling others about God’s saving grace through Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 8:9,1 Corinthians 12:12, Galatians 3:26-28)
  8. I believe in the creation of people and the universe by the direct act of God. (Genesis 1:1, 1:26-28, 5:1-2)
