Statement of Faith
We Believe the Holy Bible to be the inspired, only infallible, authoritative Word of God (2 Peter 1:21, 2 Tim 3:15).
We Believe in the one God, existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 1030).
We Believe in the deity of Jesus Christ (John 10:33).
His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23).
His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, Hebrews 7:26).
His miracles (John 2:11).
His vicarious and atoning death (Ephesians 1:7, 1 Corinthians 15:3).
His resurrection (John 11:25).
His ascension to the right hand of the father (Mark 16:19).
His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11).
We Believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of the human nature, and that individuals are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ and that only by God’s grace and through faith alone are we saved (John 3:16-19, Roman 3:23, Romans 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10).
We Believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they are saved unto the resurrection of life and they are lost unto the resurrection damnation (John 5:28-29).
We Believe in the spiritual unity of believers of our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 12:12-13).
We Believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the believer is able to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14, Ephesians 4:30, Ephesians 5:18).
We Believe that prayer is vitally important to undergird the oneness we have in Christ.
We Believe that parents are the primary educators of their children.
We Believe that the school should partner with parents to provide a Christian education for their child. Compromises are not made with relation to scripture.
We Believe that the Bible and religious training are a part of every aspect of daily training of the Christian school program.
We Believe that gender identity is exclusively heterosexual involving one man and one woman (1 Corinthians 6:18-20, Exodus 20:14).
We Believe that homosexuality is a violation of scripture (Romans 1:21-27).
We Believe that premarital or extramarital sexual intimacy, heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual violates scripture (1 Corinthians 6:18-20, Exodus 20:14).
We Believe that the sanctity of life begins at conception and that an unborn child at any stage of development is fully human and should be treated as such (Jeremiah 1:5).
Special Note: This brief Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired, infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and conduct, is the sole and final authority of all that we believe. For the purposes of Central Christian School’s faith, doctrine, policies, and discipline, the Board of Trustees and Leadership Team are the final interpretive authority of the Bible’s meaning and application.
