Statement of Faith
A unique advantage of our school is the emphasis that can be placed upon a person’s Spiritual nature.
Wise County Christian School is an interdenominational school which accepts the diversity of belief, not as a divisive force, but as a unifying one.
The school’s Statement of Faith serves to seek cooperation among fundamental, Bible-believing Christians of many denominations, emphasizing those great truths we universally accept. It is our desire that each student confess Jesus Christ as Savior, seek His Lordship and make Biblical principles central in his/her own life and value system.
STATEMENT OF FAITH (Condensed)
There is one God eternally existing in three persons–the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)
The Bible is the Word of God, verbally inspired; infallible and inerrant in all that it says. (II Tim. 3:16; I Thes. 2:13)
The Lord Jesus Christ is fully God (John 1:1); fully man (John 1:14); born of a virgin (Matthew 1:23); lived a sinless life (Hebrews 4:15); performed miracles (John 4:29); shed His blood and died a substitution death (Hebrews 10:10, 12, 19); arose bodily from the dead (I Cor. 15:12-20); ascended to and sits in glory at the Father’s right hand (Hebrews 1:3); and is to return for His own (John 14:3).
Mankind is by nature and practice a sinner; separated from God and can become God’s child only by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His work of redemption on Calvary. (Jeremiah 17:9; Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; and Romans 10:9,10).
Those who are born into God’s family have eternal life and those who are not, remain in spiritual death and will be separated from God forever in Hell. (John 3:18, 36; and Matthew 25:46)
The Holy Spirit lives in the believer and enables them to walk in purity of life and submission to the will of God. (Ephesians 1:13, 14; and Galatians 4:22, 23)
All believers are united together by the Holy Spirit in the body of Christ for the purpose of causing the growth of the body and building itself up in love. (I Cor. 12:13; Ephesians 4:16)
The triune God created from nothing all that is in the span of six days. (Genesis 1)
The ministry of the local church is God’s established instrument for carrying out the Great Commission. The body of Christ, the Church, is composed of all born again believers who have by faith accepted Christ as Lord.
