New Covenant Christian School

wHAT WE BELIEVE

OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH

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.

We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, trustworthy and true, without error, Word of God and that the Word of God is the only guide for a believer’s conduct, showing the believer how to relate to God, with one another and others in the world. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

We believe there is only one God who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  (Matthew 28:19; 1 John :7)

We believe that Jesus Christ is God; in His virgin birth; in His sinless life; in His miracles; in His death on a cross that paid for our sin through His shed blood; in His descent into hell to defeat satan, death, and the grave; in His bodily resurrection on the 3rd day after His crucifixion; in His ascension/rising up to the right hand of the Father; and in His personal return in power and glory. He is the Head of the Church. (John 1:1; Matthew 1:18,25; Hebrews 4:15; Hebrews 9:15-22; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Ephesians 4:9; 1 Peter 3:18-19; Acts 2:27; Acts 1:9-11; Hebrews 9:27-28; Colossians 1:18)

We believe that acceptance of Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit is the only path to salvation for lost/sinful men and women. (John 3:16; John 5:24; John 14:6; Titus 3:3-7)

We believe that the salvation of humankind is wholly a work of God’s free grace and is not the work, in whole or in part, of human works or goodness or religious ceremony. God imputes His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation, and thereby justified them in His sight. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 10:9-10; 2 Corinthians 5:21)

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, who lives within and guides Christians so they are enabled to live godly lives. (John 14:15-26; John 16:5-16; Ephesians 1:13-14)

We believe in water baptism by immersion of all souls who put their faith in Jesus Christ, according to the teaching of Christ in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; Galatians 3:27)

We believe in eternal life, and that through belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God, we spend eternity with the Lord in Heaven. We believe that in rejecting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we receive eternal suffering in hell. (Matthew 25:31-46; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, that all believers are members of His body, the Church. (Philippians 2:1-4)

We believe that God’s design for sexual intimacy is to be expressed only within the context of marriage. God instituted marriage between one man and one woman as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively the union of one man and one woman. (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:5-6; Mark 10:6-9; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9)

We believe that God created all human beings in His image. Therefore, we believe that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end; that we must honor the physical and spiritual needs of all people; following Christ’s example, we believe that every person should be treated with love, dignity and respect. (Genesis 1:27; Psalm 139:13; Isaiah 49:1; Jeremiah 1:5; Matthew 22:37-39; Romans 12:20-21; Galatians 6:10)

We believe that the responsibility of every believer in Jesus Christ is to spread the gospel to everyone within their sphere of influence. (Matthew 28:19-20)

We believe that Jesus Christ will come again to the earth – personally, visibly, and bodily – to gather His church, reign with a rod of iron, and complete the eternal plan of God the Father. (Matthew 24:30; Zechariah 14:4-7, 16-21;  Revelation 19:11-16)

We believe that there will be a bodily resurrection of the saved and of the lost—of the saved, unto eternal life, and of the lost, unto eternal judgment in the lake of fire. (Daniel 12:1-2; Jeremiah 33:15; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:4-6)
