churches and individuals involved in instructional ministry, all staff,
all directors, and all officers of the corporation must hold to the
following essential truths of the Christian faith.
We believe in the Holy Bible, Old and New Testaments, as inspired by God
and inerrant in its original writings, and that it is the complete and
final authority on all matters of life and faith.
We believe in the one true, and living God, eternally existing in three
persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; yet one God. This God
is Creator of all that exists.
We believe that man was created in the image of God; that through sin
man incurred both spiritual and physical death. As a result, humanity is
totally depraved, alienated from God, under His righteous anger, and in
need of a savior; Jesus Christ.
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of
the virgin Mary, and that He is true God and true man. In Him all the
fullness of the Godhead dwells forever.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, as a representative and
substitutionary sacrifice, died for our sins and that all who believe in
Him are justified by His shed blood.
We believe in the physical resurrection of the crucified body of our
Lord Jesus Christ, His ascension into heaven, His present life there for
us as High Priest and advocate, and His future personal return.
We believe salvation is only and altogether through simple faith in
Jesus Christ and that without such faith there can be no salvation here
or hereafter. By the grace of God, all who in repentance and faith
receive the Lord Jesus Christ, are born again by the Holy Spirit and
thereby become children of God.
We believe that each believer is called to a life of holiness and
perseverance; growing in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the resurrection of the saved and the unsaved, who will
all stand before God in judgment. The saved will spend eternity in the
presence of God and the unsaved will be condemned to everlasting
