Statement of Faith
North Hills Christian School believes the Bible is inspired, authoritative, inerrant and infallible and is our final authority in matters of doctrine and practice. (2 Timothy 3:16), (2 Peter 1:21)
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He created the universe and everything in it. (Genesis 1:1), (Matthew 28:19), (John 10:30)
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and is fully divine and fully human. (John 10:33)
We believe in His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14), (Matthew 1:23), (Luke 1:35), His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15), (Hebrews 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11), His vicarious and atoning death (1Corinthians 15:3), (Ephesians 1:7), (Hebrews 2:9), His resurrection (John 11:25), (1 Corinthians 15:4), His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19), and His personal future return in power and glory (Acts 1:11), (Revelation 19:11).
We believe that every human is born sinful and in need of salvation. Those who receive salvation are justified by faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace and through faith are we saved. (John 3:16-19, John 5:24), (Romans 3:23, Romans 5:8-9), (Ephesians 2:8-10), (Titus 3:5)
We believe that Jesus Christ will return to renew the whole creation and to judge the living and the dead. (John5:28-29)
We believe in the spiritual unity of the body of Christ, which is the Church. It is composed of all believers who have accepted Jesus Christ as Savior. (Romans 8:9), (1 Corinthians 12:12-13), (Galatians 3:26-28)
We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to exercise spiritual gifts and live a godly life. (Romans 8:13-14), (1 Corinthians 3:16, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20), (Ephesians 4:30, Ephesians 5:18)
We believe that the will of God for all believers is to give evidence of sanctification through being honorable in all relations with others and by increasing in the knowledge of Christ and growing in grace. (Romans 12:1-2), (1 Thessalonians 4:3), (James 1:27)
We believe that God created men and women in His image and that these two distinct, yet complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. We believe that marriage is a sacred, exclusive union between a man and a woman and serves as a picture of Christ’s relationship with the church. We believe that God has commanded that sexual activity be exclusively reserved to a man and a woman who are married to each other. (Genesis 2:18-24), (Matthew 5:27-28, Matthew 15:18-20, Matthew 19:3-12), (Ephesians 5:22-33), (1 Corinthians 6:9-11&18, 1 Corinthians 7:1-5), (Hebrews 13:4)
We believe that the Bible describes how Christians ought to live and is the final authority of all that we believe concerning truth, morality, and personal conduct.
