Statement of Faith
The Statement of Faith is considered to be “non-denominational” and encompasses those truths which distinguish Christian believers from non-believers. There are many other precious truths taught in the Bible over which believers 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.
We welcome families who believe differently, but ask that no one causes dissension by deliberately teaching anything in opposition to our stated values. We require that members of the Executive Team, as well as the Chapel Coordinator and teachers of spiritually-focused classes personally believe in the points listed in the Statement of Faith.
1. The Old and New Testaments are inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man. The scriptures serve as the authoritative rule of faith and conduct for all people who profess to follow Christ. (2 Timothy 3:15-17, 1 Thessalonians 2:13, 2 Peter 1:21)
2. The one, true God has revealed himself as the eternally self-existent “I AM”, the creator of heaven and earth, and the redeemer of mankind. While there is only one God, we relate to him as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 43:10-11, Matthew 28:19, 2 Corinthians 13:14, 1 John 1:3-4)
3. Man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. (Luke 24:47, Romans 10:13-15, Ephesians 2:8, Titus 2:11, 3:5-7, John 14:6)
