Statement of Faith
Partnership Homeschool Educational Association of Minnesota is inclusively a Christian homeschooling group. We are Christian in our approach to this group, homeschooling, and life in general. The leadership of this group agrees to a statement of faith prior to serving and agrees to make their decisions for the group based upon it. We require all families to uphold these statements, even if they are not in full agreeance with them. Teachers and leaders will be required to adhere to them in all their areas of service. All our class offerings will be from a biblical worldview.
There is one God, the creator of all things who is eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (John 10:30; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 Peter 1:2)
We believe that man came by direct creation of God and not by evolution. (Genesis 1-2; John 1:3; Colossians 1:16-17)
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in truth.
Jesus Christ, born of a virgin, is God come in the flesh.
The Holy Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God inspired by the Holy Spirit, and the final authority for Christian faith and life. . (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21)
Man is by nature sinful and is inherently in need of salvation, which is exclusively found by faith alone in Jesus Christ and his shed blood. (Genesis 1:26-27; John 3:3; Romans 5:15)
Christ's death provides substitutionary atonement for our sins. (John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-9)
Jesus Christ literally rose bodily from the dead.
Jesus Christ will literally come to earth again in the Second Advent.
We believe that the church of Jesus Christ is composed of all born-again believers. As believers, we are called to live lives pleasing to the Lord and to abstain from practices which grieve Him.
We believe that God is the giver of life and all human life is sacred and to be protected. (Genesis 1:27; Job 12:9-10; Psalm 139:13-16; Exodus 20:13; Psalm 82:3-4)
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. (Gen 1:26-27.) Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person. We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. (Gen 2:18-25.) We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. (1 Cor 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb 13:4.) We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. We believe that any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, and use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to God. (Matt 15:18-20; 1 Cor 6:9-10.) We believe that in order to preserve the function and integrity of Partnership Homeschool Educational Association of Minnesota as the local Body of Christ, and to provide a biblical role model to the Partnership Homeschool Educational Association of Minnesota participants and the community, it is imperative that all persons involved in Partnership Homeschool Educational Association of Minnesota in any capacity, or who serve as volunteers, agree to and abide by this Statement on Marriage, Gender, and Sexuality. (Matt 5:16; Phil 2:14-16; 1 Thess 5:22.)
We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. (Acts 3:19-21; Rom 10:9-10; 1 Cor 6:9-11.)
We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. (Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31.) 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 Partnership Homeschool Educational Association of Minnesota.
If questions arise that are not covered in the statement of faith we encourage discussion, study of the word of God, prayer for God’s direction for your personal life with respect for others. It is never appropriate to tear down other people or organizations. We set aside our differences to serve and love people.
