Calvin Christian School's Statement of Faith
There is one personal, sovereign, eternal and holy God, who reveals himself as three distinct persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
God has revealed himself to us both through the Bible, which is his infallible, authoritative written word, and through the universe that he created and faithfully sustains.
God created mankind unique, good, and in his image. The purpose of mankind is to glorify God and to cultivate, care for, and develop his creation. No part of our life is spiritually neutral; all areas of life are subject to God and his Word.
The disobedience of our first parents, Adam and Eve, separated us from God, made us sinful by nature, and put us in need of salvation from eternal punishment.
Salvation is a gift of God’s grace alone through faith in Jesus Christ, who is the one and only way of salvation. Jesus Christ is the Son of God and fully divine. He was born of the virgin Mary, making him fully human, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for our sins, made us right with God, was raised from the dead, ascended into heaven and will return to judge the living and the dead. He rules all people and things, and as such is the center of our lives.
Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential for our salvation and enables us to live a Godly life.
Christians are to meet regularly with one another as a church body to worship God, to encourage one another, to proclaim the gospel message, and to experience God’s grace through baptism and the Lord’s supper.
Jesus Christ is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and he reigns over all things for our good. To be a citizen of this kingdom is a privilege, a joy, and a responsibility. Led by his Spirit, we place our every thought, word, and deed in the service of Christ’s present and coming reign, and we live daily in the confident hope of his triumphant return.
