NCHE Statement of Faith

Section 1. Preface

Our Statement of Faith includes only those truths upon which all true Christians agree.  It concerns the Person and Work of Jesus Christ (the Gospel) as revealed in Scripture.  It is the faith once delivered to the saints (Jude 2, Ephesians 4:5) which distinguishes believers from non-believers.  There are many other precious truths taught in the Bible over which godly men have differed in understanding.  Therefore, this is not a statement of all that is important to believe, but of all that is essential to believe for Christian fellowship and unity (Romans 15:7).

Section 2. Statement

  1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God, and of supreme and final authority in faith and life.

  2. We believe that there is one living and true God; an infinite, intelligent Spirit, perfect in all His attributes, one in essence but eternally subsistent in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  3. We believe in the fall of man; although originally created in the image of God, through the disobedience of Adam, man fell into a sinful and spiritually impotent state, totally unable to justify himself before God.  Salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, not as a result of good works.  Pardon for sin is freely given at the moment of confession when repentance of sin is made and Christ is received.

  4. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, and in His miracles.  His substitutionary death satisfied divine justice and His shed blood paid in full the penalty for sin as evidenced by His bodily resurrection.  He ascended to the right hand of the Father and will personally return in power and glory.

  5. 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.

  6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; of the saved unto resurrection of everlasting life and joy with the Lord, and of the lost unto judgment and everlasting conscious punishment, separated from God (John 5:29).

  7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that individual doctrinal differences which may exist should not hinder the unity of Christian home educators.

  8. We believe that marriage is defined by God as the covenantal union of one man and one woman and this is the foundation of the family (Gen 2:24).

  9. We believe that each person is fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of God as either male or female. One’s gender, then, is determined by God prior to his or her birth and is immutable (Gen 1:27).

  10. We believe that preaching and teaching God’s Truth, as revealed in Scripture, is neither hateful nor harassing (2Tim 4:2).
