Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith Convinced that the Bible is the verbal, plenary, inspired Word of God, Faith Christian Academy is a Christ-Centered, nondenominational, Christian school. It is a policy of the school not to discriminate in the admission of students, or hiring, on the basis of race, color, sex, or national or ethnic origins. Therefore, we affirm the following truths:

  1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God. The Word of God is the foundation of all truth therefore all truth is God's truth. (II Tim. 3:16, II Peter 1:20-21)

  2. We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Gen. 1:26, Matt. 28:19, John 10:30)

  3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. (John 1:1-5, Matt. 1:21-23, Heb. 4:15, Matt. 9:6, I Cor. 15:3-4, I Peter 3:18, Acts 1:9-11)

  4. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (I John 5:29, Rev. 20:15)

  5. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Eph. 4:5)

  6. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by indwelling the Christian enabling him to live a godly life. (I Cor 12:12-27)

  7. We believe God is Creator and Sustainer of all things and the Source of all truth. (Gen. 1:1, Col. 1:16-17, John 18:37)

  8. We believe man was created in God's image but chose to rebel against God. His rebellion brought all men under the dominion of sin. (Gen. 1:7, Gen. 3, Eph. 2:1, Rom 6:23)

  9. We believe God provided a means of regenerating man and restoring him unto Himself. He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to shed His precious blood as the sacrifice for man's sin. Therefore, each student is encouraged to receive Christ as his personal Savior and as the Lord in his life.

Final Authority

The statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs.  The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe.  For purposes of FCA's faith doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, our School Board is FCA's final interpretive authority on the Bible's meaning and application.
