Tri-County Home Educators is a Christian organization, the members of which are like-minded Christian home educators dedicated to observing the Biblical commands of Deuteronomy 6:4-10, Proverbs 22:6, and Ephesians 6:4. We promote home education as the Scriptural design for education whereas institutional education is an alternative to the home. We believe that every family has the God-given legal and constitutional right to home educate in the State of South Carolina, regardless of their philosophy of education or religious affiliation. Tri-County Home Educators is not a church nor is this organization meant to replace the ministry of the local church to the home education family.
1. The Bible to be the inspired, infallible, divinely preserved Word of God, the supreme
and final authority for all faith and life.
2. That there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
3. In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles,
His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, His bodily
resurrection, His ascension, and His imminent bodily return in power and glory.
4. That man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin and is therefore lost, and
only those who put their faith in Jesus Christ alone, not trusting in any personal works
whatsoever, can be saved.
5. That salvation is the free gift of God brought to the sinner by grace and received by
personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose substitution death on the cross paid
the penalty for man’s sin.
6. That the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to convict mankind; indwell, guide,
instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.
7. In the spiritual unity of believers through our common faith in the Lord Jesus Christ,
and that individual doctrinal differences which may exist, outside the
aforementioned (IV: 1-6), should not hinder the unity of Christian home educators.
What We Do
TCHE is here to support and encourage you throughout your homeschool experience! One way TCHE supports you is through offering members only TCHE activities (graduations, prom, student council, etc.) and advertising selected activities that are not "sponsored" by TCHE, but are of interest to our family members.(state and local conferences, co-ops, boy scouts, etc.).
