Statement of Faith
We believe that the Bible is inspired and inerrant, that all 66 books of the Old and New Testament are God’s complete written revelation to mankind, the only infallible authority in all matters of faith and practice.
We believe in one true God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the same in substance and equal in power and glory.
We believe in the complete humanity and deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, bodily resurrection, ascension to the right hand of the Father, and future personal return in power and glory.
We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells and empowers all believers and enables them to live a godly life.
We believe that through Adam’s sin all have inherited a sinful nature and therefore all choose to sin. All are thus sinners and deserving of death.
We believe that salvation of lost and sinful man is only by the grace of God through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ alone, accomplished through regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
We believe that our sins block our fellowship with God. As we confess those sins, God forgives us and our fellowship is restored.
We believe in the resurrection of the body, the judgment of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal blessedness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost.
We believe that saving faith in Jesus Christ unites all Christians as members of the body of Christ. Such a position brings both privileges and responsibilities before God and toward one another in the Christian life.
PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION
Faith Academy is a private school that offers a quality education, integrated with a Christian worldview. English language instruction is central to the implementation of the curriculum which is designed for students whose first language is English. However, this does not exclude children whose first language is not English. The concepts in the school’s Statement of Faith serve as the foundation and theological dimension for our educational philosophy. We believe that each student, being created in the image of God, is of supreme worth. We believe that the dignity and worth of the individual should be respected.
We believe that students vary as to inherent and acquired capabilities and that these differences must be taken into consideration in the educational process.
