If my class application is approved then I understand and accept the following responsibilities:
To commit to the position of TEACHER for First Choice Central Portland Christian Homeschool Co-op during the above-mentioned semester.
To NOT teach anything that would be in direct conflict with our FCCP Statement of Faith (see below).
To notify the appropriate staff person at least two weeks prior (or as soon as possible) to the start of classes if unforeseen circumstances arise to prevent me from teaching the above class.
Each teacher at Friday School volunteers his or her time in the unique and exciting opportunity to help shape young lives. We ask that those who take a position of teacher read carefully through the basic doctrinal beliefs of the Christian faith.
FCCP/Glisan St. Statement of Faith
(A full version can be found at www.glisanstreet.net)
We believe the Bible is the Word of God.
We believe the original manuscripts of both the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God, inerrant and infallible.
We believe the present canon of Scripture, the Bible, containing the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, is now complete and closed and is our only and final authority for what we are to believe and for the way we are to live.
2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:21, Revelation 22:18-19
We believe, that in spite of man's sin and rebellion against God, God has continued to love man, all men and women, throughout every generation and in every part of the world.
Because of this love, God has provided for the salvation of man.
We believe the Bible has been given so we would know the need for, the origin, the nature, the conditions, and the ultimate objectives of that salvation.
Furthermore, we believe the salvation which God has provided for us is by grace, through faith alone in Christ, utterly apart from any human merit or work which man might do.
Once a person has trusted Christ for salvation, he can never lose his salvation.
John 3:16, Ephesians 2:4-7, 2 Peter 3:9, 1 John 3:1-2, 2 Peter 2:1, Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5, John 10:27-29, 2 Timothy 1:12, 1 Peter 1:3-5
We believe in One God who exists in three distinct Persons:
the Father, His Son (the Lord Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit.
They are equal in Deity, each One possessing all of the divine attributes.
All three are eternal, unchanging, and worthy of our faith, love and service. Matthew 28:19-20, 2 Corinthians 13:14
I have read the above statements and I agree to adhere to and follow them.
