Beliefs

The basis of this Association is the Word of God. In the light of this Word, we in our educational program stand committed to the following regulations:

  1. WE BELIEVE the Bible is the only inerrant Word of God, verbally inspired in the original writings; and that it is, therefore, the final authority in matters of faith and practice. (II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:21)
  2. WE BELIEVE that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Luke 3:22, Matthew 28:19, II Corinthians 13:14)
  3. WE BELIEVE in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in salvation through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, and in His ascension to the right hand of the Father. (John 1:1-3, Matthew 1:18-23, Hebrews 4:14-16, II Corinthians 5:21, Luke 25:36-43, Acts 1:11)
  4. WE BELIEVE that Satan is a definite personality and is the controller of unregenerate man and is the great adversary of God and His people. (Revelation 12:1-10, John 12:31, Revelation 20:10, John 8:44, II Corinthians 4:4)
  5. WE BELIEVE that fallen man is sinful by nature and totally depraved and, of himself, utterly unable to remedy his lost condition. (Genesis 1:26-28, Genesis 3:1-24, Romans 5:12, John 3:3-5)
  6. WE BELIEVE that salvation is by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5-6, I Peter 1:18-19)
  7. WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, is the supernatural agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the Body of Christ and indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption. (John 16:8-15, Acts 5:3-4, Romans 8:9, I Corinthians 12:13, Ephesians 3:16)
  8. WE BELIEVE in the personal, visible, pre-millennial return of the Lord Jesus Christ for His saints. (I Thessalonians 4:16-17, I Thessalonians 1:10, Revelation 3:10)
  9. WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost - they that are saved unto eternal life in heaven and they that are lost unto eternal damnation in hell. (John 5:28-29, II Corinthians 5:10, Revelation 20:11-15, John 3:16)
  10. WE BELIEVE in Holy Christian living; separated unto God from the way of the world. (Romans 1:2, Galatians 5:22-23)
