Faith Statement

 

a.       We believe the Bible to be the infallible word of God, the supreme and final  authority for all faith and life.

           

b.      We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

c.       We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, and His imminent bodily return in power and glory.

 

d.       We believe man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and therefore is lost, and only those who put their faith in Jesus Christ alone can be saved.

 

e.      We believe that salvation is a gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose substitutionary death on the cross paid the penalty for man's sin.

 

f.       We believe Christ has already done everything necessary by His death and resurrection to remove our sins and make us holy from God's point of view.

 

g.      We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to convict men, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.    

 

h.    We believe in the spiritual unity of believers through our common faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that individual doctrinal differences which may exist, outside the aforementioned paragraphs in the Statement of Faith, should not hinder the unity of Christian home educators.

 

i.     We believe that God calls us to love one another, in deed and in truth.  In that vein, we are lead to treat all our fellow home educators with respect and kindness, regardless of their religious beliefs. In so doing, we maintain the spirit of love, unity, and peace which Jesus Christ inspires in us as Christians.
