Statement of Faith

The following are the foundational beliefs on which COMMUNITY Christian School, Inc. is based.

  1. The Bible is the Divinely inspired Word of God and is the Christian’s only inerrant, infallible, authoritative source of truth and supreme standard for conduct. (Matt. 4:4, II Tim. 3:16, II Peter 1:19-21,)
  2. There is one, and only one, living and true God, creator of all things, who is eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Gen. 1:1, Ex. 20:2-3, Deut. 5:4, Matt. 28:19, I Cor. 8:6, II Cor. 13:14, I John 5:7, Rev. 4:11)
  3. The Bible states the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His death, burial and bodily resurrection from the tomb, and His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His future personal return in power and glory. (Matt. 1:18, Matt. 28:6, Luke 21:27, John 10:30-32, Rom. 3:25, Rom. 8:34, I Cor. 15:3-5, Heb. 4:15)
  4. Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary for the salvation of lost and sinful men. The blood of Christ, shed on Calvary, is the only atonement for man’s sin. (John 3:3-8, Eph. 1:7, Titus 3:5, Heb. 9:22)
  5. Salvation is by grace through faith alone. The sinner must be born again; it is instantaneous and not a process; that in the new birth, the one dead in trespass and sin is made a partaker of the divine nature and receives eternal life and the presence of the Holy Spirit. Evidence of the new life will show in the life of a believer and that faith without works is dead (John 3:5-21, Acts 15:11, Rom. 3:24-25, Romans, 8:11, Eph. 2:8-10, Jam. 2:8, II Pet. 1:3-4)
  6. The present ministry of the Holy Spirit is to enable and empower the Christian to develop and live a godly life. (Rom. 8:13-14, Gal. 5:16)
  7. There will be a resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved to the resurrection of life and they that are lost to the resurrection of condemnation. (Dan. 12:2, John 5:28-29, I Thes. 4:16-17, II Thes. 1:9)
  8. We believe in the spiritual unity in the body of Christ of all believers. (John 17:20-23)
  9. God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. Any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex. The believers’ objective, if faced with such, is to lead those involved to repentance, recovery, and restoration. (Gen. 2:24, Gen. 19:5, 13, Gen. 26:8-9, Lev. 18:1-30, Rom. 1:26-29, I Cor. 5:1, I Cor. 6:9-11, I Thes. 4:1-8, Heb. 13:4)
