Building Academic Excellence with Biblical Character Since 1984

            - that the Bible in Its original documents is the inspired Word of God. It has been preserved by God for us today, and It is final in Its content, and without error in Its statements.         

            - that there is one God eternally existent and all-powerful, Creator of heaven and earth and all things, Who is manifested to us in three persons--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.                
            - that the Lord Jesus Christ is Godís only begotten Son, fully God in the flesh, who came and lived a sinless life here on our earth.                                                 
            - that Jesus Christ gave up His divine life willingly as the complete and sacrificial payment for every personís sins, and that He bodily arose again from death after three days.

            - that every person needs Christ as Savior because all people are lost apart from Him.

            - that every person who chooses of his own free will to believe Godís record of His Son, trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, is sure to go to Heaven. A person's salvation can never be removed, lost, or changed in any way. A believer is eternally secure because his salvation is by grace through his faith in Jesus Christ and has been accomplished through the finished work of Christ rather than by his own works (as all false religious systems teach by subtlety).  

            - that this trust in Christ bringing one salvation is not Biblical saving faith unless it is trust in Christ alone, i.e. Christ + baptism, or Christ + obedience, or Christ + surrender do not = Christ alone.

            - that, having trusted in Christ, a believer should partake in believerís baptism and communion and get involved in living for Christ at a local, Bible-believing and Gospel-preaching church.          

            - that it is the duty of every Christian to preach the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.          

            - that sign gifts were temporary and ceased when Godís written record was complete. We are not in sympathy with the modern charismatic movements, including speaking in tongues and faith healing.

            - that it is Godís will in the present church age that He be revealed to us through His Word and the convicting and enlightening work of the Holy Spirit who indwells every believer at the moment of his salvation.                                                        

            - that the Lord Jesus Christ will return at any moment to catch His bride, the Church, away.

            - that God created human beings as male and female, that these two genders are God-ordained, separate, and distinct, and that the only form of marriage recognized by God is the union of one man with one woman.
