STATEMENT OF FAITH

We seek to provide biblically-integrated education that will equip the student for a life of Christian service.

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God (2 Tim. 3:15, 2 Pt. 1:21).

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Gen. 1:1; Matt. 28:19; Jn. 10:30).

We believe in the deity of Christ (Jn. 2:11), His virgin birth (Is. 7:14; Matt. 1:23; Lk. 1:35), His sinless life (Heb. 4:15; Heb. 7:26), His miracles (Jn. 2:11), His vicarious and atoning death (I Cor. 15:3; Eph. 1:7; Heb. 2:9), His resurrection (Jn. 11:25; I Cor. 15:4), His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mk. 16:19), and His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11; Rev. 19:11).

We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature, and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ. Only by God’s grace and through faith alone are we saved  (Jn. 3:16-19; Jn. 5:24; Rom. 3:23; Rom. 5:8-9; Eph. 2:8-10; Tit. 3:5).

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and that they are lost unto the resurrection of damnation (Jn. 5:28-29).

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Rom. 8:9; I Cor. 12:12-13; Gal. 3:26-28).

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Ro. 8:13-14; I Cor. 3:16; I Cor. 6:19-20; Eph. 4:30; Eph. 5:18).
