Our Faith

The Christian concepts taught within our curriculum are common to all Christian denominations. We believe that anyone who trusts in Jesus Christ and accepts Him as Lord and Savior of their lives is cleansed from sin and receives God’s free gift of eternal life. The follow statements of faith may be helpful to discuss with your children. We have also provided the Bible verses that you and your child(ren) may want to read together as a family.

Who Is God?
We believe God is the Creator of the world and all good things and that there is only one true God. God is three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is a loving and good God who never sins, never makes mistakes and never does anything bad. He always wants what is best for us.

What Is the Bible?
We believe the Bible is the all-authoritative, inerrant Word of God and teaches us how to live. God has a plan for our lives and the Bible is our guide. We are to model Jesus in our behavior. Praying and learning what God says to us in the Bible helps us to grow the way Jesus wants us to grow. We must test everything to make sure it is in accordance with what the Bible says.

What Is Prayer?
Prayer is talking to God. We can pray thanking God because He gives us many blessings. We can pray at anytime about anything and at any place. Jesus always answers prayers. Sometimes, His answer is, “No,” or, “Wait.” In prayer, we can ask God for our needs and repent of our sins. When we are upset or mixed up, Jesus wants us to come to Him in prayer. God also wants us to pray for others.

How Can I Have a Relationship with God?
God made you, and He loves you. But, we have all sinned. Sin is doing things that you know are wrong and are displeasing to God. Even when we try hard not to, everyone in the world has sinned except Jesus. While Jesus is sad when we sin, He never stops loving us. Jesus loves us so much, He died for us on a cross to take away our sins. But, Jesus did not stay dead. He came alive and is preparing a place for us in heaven. When we ask Jesus into our hearts, we are born a second time; this time into God’s family. When we are born again, we are children of God, our Heavenly Father, and we are all brothers and sisters. Jesus is still working on us, changing us, helping us to grow more like Him.

Who is the Holy Spirit?
When Jesus rose to heaven, He did not leave us alone. He sent us His Holy Spirit to live inside our hearts. The Holy Spirit comforts us when we are sad, guides us when we need help and helps us to know when we are doing wrong things. When we have Jesus in our lives, the fruit of the Spirit grows in us. We are to be God’s witness to others. Other people learn to be loving and obedient to God by seeing it in us.
