STATEMENT OF FAITH
The Bible is God’s infallible word that reveals God’s will and purpose for mankind. (2 Peter 1:21; 1 Thessalonians 2:13)
Every word in the Bible is inspired by God and is the ultimate authority for living a fulfilled life. (2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Corinthians 2:13)
God’s plan to bring us back to Himself was fulfilled totally and completely in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as clearly recorded in the Holy Bible. Families at Legacy Classical do not adhere to any other form of scripture or book to determine eternal salvation. (1 Peter 3:18)
There is only one God who has revealed Himself in three persons- the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. (John 15:26; Galatians 4:6)
God is the Creator and in control of all things. (Genesis 1; Ne 9:6; Psalm 24:1 -2; 33:6-7 & 9)
Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin (Matthew 1:20; Luke 1:35), sinless and perfect. (Hebrews 4:15; 1 Peter 2:22; 2 Corinthians 5:21; John 8:45-46)
Jesus taught the truth and demonstrated the power of God in miracles. (Matthew 9:12; Matthew 9:12; Mark 1, 5-7; Luke 4-6, 8; John 2, 4, 9, 11)
Jesus died on a cross (John 19:1-3, 16-18) to atone for man’s sins, rose from the dead (Luke 24:39; Acts 10:40-41; Matthew 27:62-66; Mark 16, Luke 24), and ascended into heaven. (Luke 24:50-51; Acts 1:9-11) By His death and resurrection, Jesus has cleansed from sin (Acts 13:38) those who repent of their sins (Ephesians 1:7) and believe that Jesus is Lord and Savior. (John 3:16; Romans 10:12; Acts 4:12)
Upon salvation, a relationship with the Father is restored through faith in Jesus Christ his Son, faith can increase (Romans 8:3-4; Philippians 3:9; Ephesians 2:8-9) and the fruit of the Spirit and faithful obedience to God’s Word will be evident in the Christian’s life. (Galatians 5:22-23)
Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of prophecy and Old Testament scripture.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit indwells the believer and gives the enabling power of God (Acts 9:31) to live a holy life, to overcome sin, to understand the Bible (1 Corinthians 2:10), and to do the will of God (John 14:26).
Legacy Classical Christian Academy’s Statement of Faith is fundamental to basic Christian tenets and contains those doctrines to which we unreservedly adhere and teach. It is our desire to maintain this position and to do so in all fairness to each family.
It is necessary, therefore, that parents, students, staff, and school board members recognize that the following areas are to be left to the teaching of home and church:
- Church government authority
- Time and mode of baptism
- Security of the believer
- Timing of future events
- Work and gifting of the Holy Spirit
- Sinless perfection
- Sabbath Day observance
In honoring this desire concerning the outreach of this ministry, there shall be no attempt made by parents, students, staff, or school board members to promote or disparage any doctrinal or denominational beliefs, practices, or positions regarding issues upon which the ministry itself has assumed no official stance. We desire to remain united in the salvation and love of Christ, avoiding the dissension which may be caused by denominational distinctives.
