Charleston / Mattoon Area Homeschoolers

Statement of Faith


You must agree to the following Statement of Faith to be granted membership.

We believe the Bible in its original autograph to be the infallible Word of God, the supreme and final authority for all faith and life.

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

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 return in power and glory.


We believe that man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin and is therefore spiritually dead and at enmity with God.



We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man and requires belief in the Lord Jesus Christ and His substitutionary death on the cross paying the penalty for man’s sin.

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


We believe in the spiritual unity of believers through our common faith in Jesus Christ and that lesser doctrinal differences which may exist should not hinder the cooperation of Christian home educators.
