I. The Word of God: The Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21)
II. The Trinity: Within the one Being that is God, there has existed from all eternity three coequal Persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, 2 Corinthians 13:14, John 1:1-2, 14)
III. Salvation: All men are in violation of God’s righteous requirements and His holy character both by nature and act. (Romans 3:23 and 5:12, Ephesians 2:1-2) Salvation is offered as a gift, free to the sinner. This gift must be responded to by faith, not by any personal works, but in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ alone. (Acts 13:38-39; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9)
IV. Marriage is a sacred vow between a man and a woman. (Genesis 2:22-24, Mathew 19:4-6, Ephesians 5:22-23, Deuteronomy 24:5, 1 Corinthian 7:1-16)
Each parent at Firmly Planted Christian Co-op volunteers their time in the unique and exciting opportunity to help shape young lives. We require all families to uphold these statements, even if they are not in full agreeance with them. We ask that those who take a position of leadership (such as teaching) read the above basic doctrinal beliefs of the Christian faith. Teachers and leaders will be required to adhere to them in all their areas of service. All of our class offerings will be from a biblical worldview.
If questions arise that are not covered in the statement of faith we encourage discussion, study of the word of God, and prayer for God’s direction for your personal life with respect for others. It is never appropriate to tear down other people or organizations. We set aside our differences in order to serve and love people.
I have read the above statements and I agree to adhere to and follow them.
