Statement of Faith

Excelsior! Homeschool Co-op is a Christian organization, but is not tied to any particular denomination.  We have families who attend several different churches in the Treasure Valley.  But we do all adhere to the following statements as unquestionable.

I. The Word of God

The Bible, both Old and New Testament is the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God (II Tim. 3:16-17; II Pet. 1:21).

II. The Trinity

There is only one God who exists in eternity in three persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. There are no other Persons in the Holy Trinity (Deut.6:4; II Cor. 13:14; Jn. 1:1-2, 14). He alone is God (Is. 44:6).

III. Salvation

Every person is in violation of God's righteous requirements and His holy character by nature and in act and is therefore in need of redemptive salvation through Jesus Christ (Rom. 3:23, 5:12, Eph. 2:1-3).

Salvation is given as a gift, free to every sinner. This gift must be responded to by faith, not by works. Only in the sacrificial death and physical resurrection of Jesus Christ alone is forgiveness of our sins possible and salvation made available for mankind (Acts 13:38-39; Rom. 6:23; Eph. 2:8-9, Eph. Ch. 1).
