Statement of Faith

Although we want to respect our denominational secondary doctrinal differences, as a group of evangelical Christians we agree to the following foundational and essential truths as a statement of faith.

There is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 1:1,3 & 4:24; Acts 5:3,4; Romans 1:20; Ephesians 4:5,6; 2 Corinthians 13:14) The Bible is the verbally, totally inspired, infallible, Word of God; the supreme and final authority for all faith, life, and truth. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20,21)

Man was created in the image of God; he sinned; through that sin he incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death (separation from God); and all people are born with a sin nature and are guilty sinners in thought, word, and deed. (Genesis 1:26,27 & 3:1-24; Romans 3:23 & 5:12-18; 1 John 1:8)

The deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, (Philippians 2:5-8) His virgin birth, (Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38) His sinless life, (2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 John 3:5) His miracles, (John 2:23) His atoning death through His shed blood, (Isaiah 53; John 3:16-18; Romans 3:24-26; 1 Corinthians 15:3; 1 John 2:2) His bodily resurrection, (Matthew 28:6; Romans 10:9; 1 Corinthians15:14) His ascension, (Acts 1:9) and His imminent return in power and glory. (Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

Salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose death on the cross paid the penalty for man’s sin. (Romans 5:1; John 1:12-13; Ephesians 1:7 & 2:8-9) The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to convict, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service. (Acts 1:8; Romans 8:9,11; Ephesians 1:13; John 14:16-18)

All believers have spiritual unity through our common faith in Jesus Christ. We have no denominational affiliation and individual doctrinal differences which may exist should not hinder the unity of our Christian Homeschool Group. (1 John 4:11-12; John 17:21-22; 1 Corinthians 1:11-17)
