We believe in one God who is the Creator of all things from nothing by speaking them into being, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, John 10:30, 37, 38)
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, by whom all things were made. We believe that Jesus became fully man by the miracle of the virgin birth without ceasing to be fully God, in order to reveal God to man and to redeem man for God. We believe that Jesus the Lamb of God died for our sins as a substitutionary sacrifice and rose bodily from the dead as conqueror over death.
We believe that Jesus is now exalted at the right hand of God, that He is the Head of the Church and the Lord of the individual believer, that He is ministering as our Great High Priest, and that we are awaiting His bodily return. (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35, Hebrews 4:15, 7:25, 9:12, John 2:11, 11:25, Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11-16)
We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and that He convicts the world of sin, regenerates the believing sinner, and baptizes believers into the Body of Christ.
We believe in the continuing ministry of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believing Christian who is enabled to live a Godly life according to their holy calling. (Ephesians 5: 18, 4:1, 30, 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19, 20)
We believe the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God and is inerrant and infallible in its original writings. We believe it is the only and final authority for faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21)
We believe that man was created to be the image of God, but that he sinned, incurring not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God inherited by every member of the human race. (Romans 5:12-21)
We believe that salvation is the free gift of God (neither merited nor secured in part or in whole by any virtue or work of man) to be received only by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. In Him all true believers have the gift of eternal life, are clothed in perfect righteousness, and have been adopted into the family of God. As such, God’s children have been delivered from all condemnation, have received every spiritual resource needed for life and godliness and can rest in the divine guarantee that they shall never perish. (John 3:16-19, 5: 24, Romans 3:19, Ephesians 2: 8-19, Titus 3: 5, 6)
We believe that the true Church is composed of all who have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and, thereby, constitutes a spiritual unity of believers, the Body of Christ. (Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 12: 12-13, Galatians 3: 26-28)
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: those who are saved unto eternal life and those who are lost unto eternal damnation. (John 5: 28, 29)
We believe that the term marriage has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture (Genesis 2:18-25). We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other (1 Corinthians 6:18, Hebrews 13:4).
We believe that God wonderfully foreordained and immutably created each person as either male or female in conformity with their biological sex. These two distinct yet complementary genders together reflect the image and the nature of God (Genesis 1:26-27). Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.
“The Golden Rule”
We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. Harassing and hateful behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture or the doctrines of Circle Christian School (Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31).
