Policy Secondary doctrines are any doctrinal issues which are not addressed in the Knight's Christian Academy Statement of Faith. Secondary doctrines are generally not salvific in nature, not related to salvation; therefore we are encouraged in scripture to maintain our disagreements in Christian charity and deference to one another. When secondary doctrinal issues arise, they will be referred back to the family and local churches for final authority. Classroom discussion of secondary doctrine should be on an informative, non‑partisan level. Teachers will be careful not to speak to the students in a manner that would indicate a secondary doctrine is a primary doctrine. Presentation of all sides of a secondary doctrinal issue is encouraged. The teacher will encourage the students to follow up any questions they have with their parents and pastor.
We are a Christ centered school family, teaching God’s Word and how to apply it to every facet of our lives, utilizing classical methods, combining curriculum with Scripture, enabling students to think, reason, and communicate clearly in order to sustain their walk into the future with a Christian worldview, as leaders of their generation, and ultimately pressing *towards the mark of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (*Philippians 3:14)
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).
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.
