Statement of Faith
We believe in the Triune God: God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. We believe that the Bible, God’s Word, is infallible, reliable, and applicable to today’s person, adult or child. The Bible is also a gift to use and to cherish.
We believe that each child is created in the image of God. The image is not restricted to any race, sex, or income level. The image of God gives each child an enormous, unique potential. Each child is a whole child possessing unique intellectual, creative, decisional, and emotional dimensions. The major goal of education is to bring each child into his or her full potential in conformance with the image of God.
We believe that the world was perfect at creation, but sin intervened, severing all people’s perfect relationship with God and bringing consequences on every object and institution within the creation. God, in His love, provided Jesus Christ to pay the penalty for sin and restore each person to full favor with God. God freely calls people to accept the gift of salvation. God also requires that individuals and social groups follow in obedience to His word. He requires people to work to restore creation and overcome the consequences of sin both in the natural world and in society.
