Statement of Faith

NCCS stands for Bible Redemption, and is built upon the sure foundation of the Lord Jesus Christ, his essential deity, his super-natural birth, his atoning sacrifice for all who have sinned, his resurrection for our justification, his ascension to the right hand of God, within the veil, where he continues his powerful ministry in the presence of God as our advocate.  We believe the second coming of Christ to be personal, literal, and imminent.  Amen.

 

We believe the Bible is the infallible word of God; containing the true revelation of the Holy Trinity, of man’s fall, guilt and final doom, unless he repents and receives the Lord Jesus Christ. (2 Timothy 3:16).  It is sufficient for every human need.  We receive it, believe it, teach it and aim to live it.

 

We believe the Church is a composite body of believers called out of the world, saved, kept and sanctified for the master’s use, to be his witness and light bearers to the entire world. (2 Corinthians 6:17; Romans 12).

 

We believe that there is no other way of salvation except through our personal faith in, and reception of the Lord Jesus Christ, whereby we become sons of God; that all who do not so receive Christ, and who continue in sinful unbelief are hopelessly lost. (John 14:6; John 3:16-18).

 

We believe and teach that every Christian believer should receive and be filled with the Holy Spirit, the comforter, who reveals Christ, convicts of sin, regenerates the Sinner, and empowers the believer for victorious living and effective service.

 

We believe in the nine (9) gifts of the Holy Spirit to the believer.  That it is the Holy Spirit that gives these gifts, as He, the Holy Spirit sees the need.  We believe that the gifts are given to believers to benefit them as members of the body of Christ and to benefit the church as the body of Christ for the glory of God.  (1 Corinthians 12: 7, 11).

 

We believe that the gift of unknown tongues must be interpreted through the Holy Spirit when spoken in public, in the assembly of believers, in the church, that the body of Christ might be edified.  (1 Corinthians 14: 2-11).  When spoken in private and personal prayer, this is to the edification of the individual believer.  Therefore it is between the believer and the Lord.

 

We believe that God has charged parents with the responsibility of bringing up their children in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord.” (Ephesians 6:4). Christian schools can be of great assistance to the parents in this crucial task.

 

We believe that teaching is a sacred and solemn responsibility (James 3:1). Christian teachers must not only ensure that they teach solid academic principles, but they must also teach biblical principles on which all learning is based. A Christian teacher must also lead a holy lifestyle in keeping with the Scriptures, modeling what it means to be a follower of Christ. (Titus 2:7-8, 1 Peter 1:13-20). This principle extends to non-teaching staff in a Christian school as well.
