STATEMENT OF FAITH

OVERALL PHILOSOPHY:

1.We will encourage our students to work hard to accomplish the following goal: "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." (Colossians 3:23)
2.We will build Godly character through skill development and competitive sports.
3.We will strive to win as a team rather than to pursue equal time for all athletes.
4.We will seek to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ in all our words, actions, and attitudes.

 
STATEMENT OF FAITH:
1.We believe the Bible is the infallible, inerrant Word of God, and it is the supreme and final authority for all matters of faith and life (II Timothy 3:16).
2.We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (II Corinthians 13:14)
3.We believe in the perfect deity and perfect humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, and His bodily return in power and glory. (John 1:1; Isaiah 7:14; I Peter 1:22; Acts 2:22; I Corinthians 15:3-8; Acts 1:9-11; II Thessalonians 1:7-10).
4.We believe man was created in the image of God, but chose to sin and is therefore condemned. Only those who repent and place their faith in Jesus Christ are saved (John 3:16-18).
5.We believe that salvation is the gift of God by grace and is received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ whose substitutionary death on the cross paid the penalty for man's sin, through His shed blood (Ephesians 2:8).
6.We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to convict men of their sin, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service (John 16:7-13).
7.We believe in the spiritual unity of believers through our common faith in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 4:1-6).
