Purpose and Biblical Basis
Statement of Faith
CenTex Christian Homeschool is comprised of individuals or families who are providing a Christ-centered education in the home. We believe that our children are gifts from God and that, as parents, we are fully responsible for:
- Their education
- Instilling Godly character
- Training our children by instruction and example to love God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love their neighbor as themselves. (Deut. 6:*9; Prov. 22:6; Eph. 6:4; Luke 10:27)
The objectives of CenTex Christian Homeschool shall be to provide the opportunity for fellowship and exchange among homeschooling families and those interested in home education through:
- Providing moral support in educational matters,
- Exchanging resource and curriculum ideas,
- Sponsoring field trips and group activities,
- Establishing a network for communication of political and legal information.
CenTex Christian Homeschool intends to be Christ-Centered, doing all things in a manner which honors Biblical principles and brings glory to His Name. To that end:
We, the members of the CenTex Christian Homeschool, in order to: fulfill our stated purpose before God, edify the body of Christ (Eph. 4:2-3), strengthen the family, spread the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, promote Judeo-Christian (Rev. 5:9) ethical and moral behavior, obey the commandments of the Lord Jesus Christ, and to make our children a Godly heritage (Psalm 127:3), do establish the following:
- We believe that the Bible - the old and new testaments - is the only inspired, inerrant word of God. The Bible is the complete statement of our Christian faith, the infallible guide for our daily life and our final authority in all things (2 Tim. 3:16).
- We believe that God has existed for all eternity and that He exists as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (John 1:1-3; Heb.9:14).
- We believe that Jesus is the Christ and the only begotten Son of God, who took on human flesh while remaining fully God and fully man, yet was without sin (John 1:14; 1 Peter 2:21-22; Cot 2:9).
- We believe that all people have sinned and come short of the glory of God and are therefore under His condemnation (Rom. 3:23). Eternal salvation and forgiveness of sin is by grace through faith - not by works of righteousness, but by the free gift of God through Christ's substitutionary death on the cross, burial, and bodily resurrection (Eph. 2:8; Eph. 1:7; Titus 3:5; 1 Corinth. 15:3-4; 2 Peter 3:9)
Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. (John 3:3)
I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)
