There are many denominations/doctrines found within the history and present day construct of the church of Jesus Christ. Yet within these different interpretations and practices, there are also found certain common core beliefs. Grace Christian School is a non-denominational Christian school whose foundation is built on those close handed fundamental core beliefs of the Christian faith. We see these as follows:
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen, eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (the Trinity).
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God the Father, true God from true God, not made, of one being with the Father and through Him all things were made. We believe in Jesus Christ’s virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary and atoning death, His resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His ultimate personal return in power and glory.
We believe that God, in the form of the Son Jesus Christ, for our sake and our salvation:
Came down from heaven, became incarnate from the Virgin Mary and was made man,
Was crucified under Pontius Pilate, suffered death and was buried,
Rose again to life from death on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father,
Will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, saved and lost, the saved unto the resurrection of life, the lost unto the resurrection of Damnation, and His kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, of God, from God, promised to man by Jesus Christ who, with the Father and Son, is worshipped and glorified. We also believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that ONLY by God’s grace and through faith alone are we saved. We likewise believe in the present and active ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life, the fruits of which are the evidences of the spiritual unity of believers.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God, teaching us what is true and right, helping us to recognize and identify what is false and wrong, and useful for the correction of ourselves and all believers.
