HEARTS Statement of Faith and Mission Statement
Statement of Faith
In one God, eternally existing in three persons – God the Father, God the Son (who is the Lord Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit – each of who is equal in being, power, and glory.
In the Lord Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, (John 3:16) His virgin birth, sinless life, sacrificial death for our sins, His bodily resurrection, and His personal literal return.
The Bible is the living, inspired, and infallible Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16). It is without error in its original writings and constitutes God’s completed and final revelation.
That every person is created by God in His image as male or female. Marriage is made for one man and one woman for life as a reflection of the relationship between Christ and the Church. This being part of God's created order of life. All sexual activity outside of God's created order is sinful. (Gen 1:27, 2-22; 1 Thess 4:3; Eph 5:3)
That man is saved by grace through faith and nothing of man enters into his salvation; it is a free gift. Man’s efforts, regardless of how good or well intended, before or after salvation, have no bearing on one’s salvation. Salvation is only by the finished work of Christ. (Eph. 2:8,9)
We strive to create a Christ-centered learning environment that is honoring God in all we say and do. Our goal is to train the next generation of Christian leaders by equipping them with the skills needed to confidently serve their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, no matter the setting. We want to come alongside each family to further their desire for a lifestyle based on biblical truth and morals. To support both our beliefs and our students’, we want both HEARTS and the home to be under the same authority of God.
