Statement of Faith
God: God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. God demonstrated His power, wisdom and goodness by creating the world and everything in it. He is all powerful, all knowing, ever-present and unchanging. (Genesis 1:1,26,27; 3:22, Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
Jesus: Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for humankind and in so doing paid for our sins through His sacrifice. He rose from the dead and ascended into heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father as the only intercessor between God and humans. He promises to return to earth, personally and visibly, to fulfill history and the eternal plan of God. (Isa. 9:6; John 1:1,14; Phil. 2:5-6; 1 Tim. 2:5, 3:16)
Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit is equal with God the Father and God the Son. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding spiritual truth and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily. We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is an endowment of power available to every believer subsequent to conversion. We believe in the present supernatural ministry of the Holy Spirit through the believers by the manifestation of the gifts. (2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; John 14:16-26; John 15:26; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16,12:7-11, 28; Ephesians 1:13 , 4:7-16, 5:18; Galatians 5:22-25; Luke 24:49; Acts 2:4; Romans 12:6-8)
Man: Man is made in the spiritual image of God to be like Him in character. He is the supreme object of God’s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience towards God called “sin.” This attitude separates man from God.(Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2)
Salvation: Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Salvation cannot be earned but is given freely to those who turn from their sin and receive this free gift from God. (Rom 10:9-10; Acts 16:31; Gal. 2:16; Eph. 2:8-9; Titus 3:5)
The Bible: The Bible, and only the Bible, is the inspired Word of God. It alone is the final authority for determining all truth. The Bible is inerrant and relevant to today’s society. (Rom. 16:25-26; 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:20-21)
Eternity: Man was created to exist forever. He will exist either eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is Heaven. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence. (John 3:16; 1 John 2:25, 5:11-13; Acts 24:15; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; Matthew 18:8; Matthew 25:44-46; Daniel 12:2)
Creation: God created the heavens and the earth in six 24-hour days (Genesis 1).
Parents: Parents are responsible for the training and education of their children. (Eph. 6:4, Deut. 4:9, 6:7, 11:19; Heb.12:5)
Marriage: We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. (Gen 2:18-25) We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. (1 Cor 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb 13:4) We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.
We believe that any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, and use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to God. (Matt 15:18-20; 1 Cor 6:9-10)
We believe that in order to preserve the function and integrity of Christian Life Academy and to provide a biblical role model to its students and members of its community, it is imperative that all persons employed by Christian Life Academy in any capacity, or who serve as volunteers, agree to and abide by this Statement on Marriage, Gender, and Sexuality. (Matt 5:16; Phil 2:14-16; 1 Thess. 5:22)
We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. (Acts 3:19-21; Rom. 10:9-10; 1 Cor. 6:9-11)
Gender: We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. (Genesis 1:26-27)
Care: We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. (Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31) Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture nor the doctrines of Christian Life Academy.
