Doctrinal Statement

DOCTRINAL STATEMENT

 

The doctrinal statement for Liberty Christian School consists of the following eight statements.

1. We believe in the authority and sufficiency of the Bible, consisting of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, as originally written; that it was completely inspired by God, and therefore infallible, inerrant, and it is the final authority in faith and life. (II Tim. 3:16,17; II Peter 1:19-21).

2. We believe there is only one true and living eternal God, an infinite Spirit, the Maker and Ruler of Heaven and earth; inexpressibly holy and worthy of all honor, confidence, and love; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in every divine perfection and existing distinct but harmonious offices in the work of redemption. (Ex. 20:2,3; I Cor. 8:6; Rev. 4:11).

3. We believe that the eternal Lord Jesus Christ, begotten of the Holy Spirit, was born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man. (Luke 1:26-31,35; John 1:1,14). We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10.33), His vicarious and atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9), His bodily resurrection (John 11:25, I Corinthians 15:4), His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19), and His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11).

4. We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person, equal with God the Father, God the Son, and of the same nature; that in His relation to the unbelieving world He restrains Satan until God's purpose is fulfilled; that He convicts of sin, of righteousness and of judgment; that He bears witness to the truth of the gospel in preaching and testimony; that He is the agent in the new birth. (John 14:16,17; Matt. 28:19; Heb. 9:14; John 14:26; Luke 1:35; John 16:8-11; Acts 5:30-32; John 3:5-6; Eph. 1:13-14; Mark 1:8; John 1:33).

5. We believe in the reality and personality of Satan, the Devil; that he was created by God as an angel but through pride and rebellion became the enemy of his Creator; that he became the unholy god of this age and the ruler of all the powers of darkness and is destined to the judgment of an eternal justice in the Lake of fire. (Matt. 4:1-11; II Cor. 4:4; Rev. 20:10).

6. We believe the Biblical account of the creation of the physical universe, angels, and man; that the Genesis account is a literal, historical account of the direct, immediate creative acts of God without any evolutionary process; that man was created by a direct work of God and not from previously existing forms of life; and that all men are descended from the historical Adam and Eve, first parents of the entire human race. (Gen. 1:2; Col. 1:16,17; John 1:3).

7. We believe that man was created in innocence (in the image and likeness of God) under the law of his Maker, but by voluntary transgression Adam fell from his sinless and happy state, and all men sinned in him, in consequence of which all men are totally depraved, are partakers of Adam's conduct, and therefore are under just condemnation without defense or excuse. (Gen. 3:1-6; Romans 3:10-19; 5:12,19; 1:18,32). Furthermore, all who remain in unbelief are under the curse; and this distinction holds among men both in and after death, in the everlasting conscious suffering of the lost in the Lake of Fire. (Pro. 14:32; Luke 16:25; Matt. 25:41; John 8:21; Rev. 20:14-15).

8. We believe that the salvation of sinners is divinely initiated and wholly of grace through Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who voluntarily took upon Himself our nature, yet without sin, and honored the law by His personal obedience, thus qualifying Him to be our Savior; that by the shedding of His blood in His death, He fully satisfied the just demands of a holy and righteous God regarding sin. We believe that faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is the only condition of salvation. That in order to be saved, sinners must be born again, which is instantaneous and not a process, and that at the appointed time, the dead in Christ shall be raised in glorified bodies and the living in Christ shall be given glorified bodies to live forever with the Lord. (Jonah 2:9; Eph. 2:8; Acts 15:11; Rom. 3:24-25; John 3:16; Matt. 18:11; Phil. 2:7-8; John 3:3; II Cor. 5:17; I John 5:1)
