Family Christian Homeschool Co-op

Statement of Faith

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, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension and His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person proceeding from the Father and the Son and is therefore
eternal, and of the same essence, majesty, and glory with the Father and the Son. We believe therefore that the Holy Spirit is truly God.

We believe salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins.

We believe the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired, and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instruction. That it has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter. That it reveals the principles by which God will judge us, and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried. We believe God in His Word has given parents the responsibility to educate their children in a Godly manner.

We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person. (Genesis 1:26-27)

We believe it is our obligation as believers to witness by life and word to the truth of the Gospel and proclaim these to all mankind. In the spirit of Christ, Christians should oppose racism, every form of greed, selfishness and vice, and all forms of sexual immorality, including adultery, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, and use of pornography. We should work to provide for the orphaned, the needy, the abused, the aged, the helpless and the sick. We should speak on behalf of the unborn and contend for the sanctity of all human life from conception to natural death.

We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture nor the doctrines of Family Christian Homeschool Co-op. But God is merciful to all sinners. He offers redemption to all who confess and forsake their sins, seeking His forgiveness and mercy through Jesus Christ. (Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31)

We believe that a visible church of Christ is a congregation of believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the Gospel, observing the ordinances of Christ, governed by His laws, and exercising the gifts, rights and privileges invested in them by His Word.

We believe in that "Blessed Hope," the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ for His redeemed ones, and in His return to the earth, with His saints to establish His Kingdom.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and
everlasting punishment.
