We believe parents are to be the single most authoritative figures in the life of their child. Parents are the key to a child’s education, attitude, as well as the child’s character and moral conduct. The responsibility of a parent cannot be handed off to another person, whether the person is an educator or a friend of the family. While others may play a vital role in the development of the child, the parent is ultimately responsible. Because of the magnitude of this responsibility, the family unit and structure is of great importance. A family that is committed to each other under the authority of God’s Word is a family that recognizes the importance of a solid Biblical education. Our goal is not to isolate children from the world and the negative things found there; rather, it is to assist parents in such a way as to train their child to go into the world and impact it for the Kingdom of God.
We believe the Bible to be inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21). We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30). We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33), His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35), His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11), His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9), His resurrection (John 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:4), His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19), and 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 human nature, and that people are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ, and that only by God’s grace and through faith are we saved (John 3:16-21; John 5:24; Romans 3:23, 5:8, 9; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5). We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28, 29). We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12:12, 13; Galatians 3:26-28). We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13, 14; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19, 20; Ephesians 4:30, 5:18).
To aid parents in fulfilling their God-given responsibility in educating their children to improve their family, enhance our communities, and impact the world in accordance with God’s written Word.
