Statement of Faith

Communities of Home Educators for Christ is a Christian support group for people interested in home education. As a Christian group, we find that our members have basic beliefs in common, though our group includes many facets of the Christian faith. Members seeking leadership positions in CHEC must affirm their belief in these statements by signature on their membership application. CHEC core beliefs are:

 
 

The Bible is the inspired and infallible word of God; it is God's completed and final revelation to man; and it is our only rule of faith and practice.

One God exists in three persons, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

All mankind has sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, and as such, deserves His displeasure and wrath.

God the Father, having mercy on sinful mankind, has sent His Son, Christ Jesus, to pay the penalty of mankind's sin through His substitutionary death on the cross of Calvary. He was raised from the dead, ascended into heaven and we await His imminent return.

Man cannot save himself from his justly deserved condemnation through his own efforts. We categorically deny salvation by works. We confidently affirm that salvation is made possible by the grace of God alone.
