Doctrinal Statement

The faculty and staff share a common commitment to these historic Christian beliefs.  This unified theological posture is reflected in the classroom instruction.  We believe in:

  • The one, true and living God
  • The Trinity: God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  • The inspiration, inerrancy and authority of the Bible as God’s Word
  • The literal, historical, grammatical interpretive approach to the Bible
  • Man’s sinfulness and separation from God
  • The existence of Angels and Satan
  • The full deity and humanity of Jesus Christ
  • The sacrificial, substitutionary death of Christ on the cross for Man’s sin
  • The bodily resurrection and present exaltation of Christ
  • Salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ
  • The deity of the indwelling Holy Spirit
  • The Lordship of Jesus Christ over His Church, the people of God.
  • The importance of the local church
  • The Great Commission to make disciples
  • The priesthood of all believers
  • The need for righteous living and godly works
  • A pretribulation rapture of the Church
  • The premillennial return of Jesus Christ
  • Future life, bodily resurrection and judgment.

It is assumed that students who attend the school are in basic agreement with its evangelical doctrinal position.  Those who may have theological differences with the school or its instructors, especially in controversial matters, are expected not to be a disruptive influence in the classroom.
