Biblical Foundations Statement

We believe that the Scripture of the Old and New Testament are the inspired Word of God and the only standard for faith, and academic discipline.

We believe that there is one sovereign God, eternally existing in three persons: the everlasting Father, His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, and the Holy Spirit, the giver of life.

We believe that God has revealed Himself and His Truth in the created order, in the Scriptures, and supremely in Jesus Christ.

We believe that God has created humanity in His image and likeness, but the disobedience of Adam, all humankind was alienated from God and lost.

We believe that Jesus Christ is the messiah, the Son of God, born of the Virgin Mary, who died on the cross, was physically resurrected from the dead, ascended into heaven, and will one day return in His glory to reign upon the earth.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures; whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells and gives life to believers, enables them to understand the Scriptures, empowers them for godly living and equips them for service and witness.

We believe that the Church is the body of Christ and that the people of God are called to community, worship, discipleship, mission, and education.
