Statement of Faith

Faith Academy is a Christian school offering an educational environment that is Christ centred and Bible based. There are Bible and/or Doctrine classes scheduled for the teaching of Christian content. Biblical principles are incorporated in all facets of the educational program as well as the general life of the school. By way of classroom discussions, learning activities and social interactions a Biblical perspective and worldview is maintained. Parents/Guardians need to be aware of the particular doctrinal position and perspective of Faith Academy.

 

The Bible

We believe God has revealed to all people His truth in the Bible and that the original manuscripts were fully inspired and without error. We believe it is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and practice.

 

One God, Three Persons

We believe there is one God: all knowing, infinite, eternal, almighty and perfect in holiness, truth and love. God exists in three equally divine Persons; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. They are co-equal, co-existent and co-eternal deserving worship and obedience.

 

God the Father

We believe that God the Father is the sovereign ruler, the creator of heaven and earth. He is an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, power, wisdom and love. He is merciful with His creation, hears and answers prayer, and He saves from sin and spiritual death all those who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

 

Jesus Christ

We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, the eternal Word made flesh. Through Him all things came into being. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings. We believe that as our representative and substitute He died, was buried and was resurrected bodily. Christ ascended into Heaven where He now intercedes for His people and is preparing a place for them. We believe in Christ’s personal, visible return to earth. He is fully God and fully man. He is the Head of His body, the Church, and should be adored, loved, served, and obeyed by all.

 

Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit came forth from the Father and Son, and convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. He indwells, guides, instructs and empowers every believer in Christ and is to be respected, honored, and worshipped as God.

 

Humanity

We believe God made humanity in His own image, as the crown of His creation, that all might have fellowship with Him. Tempted by Satan, humanity rebelled against God. As a result every person is a sinner and therefore under the condemnation of spiritual death being bound to an eternal place in hell separated from God, and in need of a Saviour.

 

Renewal and Christian Life

We believe God works in the hearts of those who come to faith in Him. They encounter God’s Spirit lovingly convicting them, bringing them to repentance, forgiving and fully accepting them, and changing their hearts to desire His holiness and His way for the world. We believe the Holy Spirit gives rebirth to those who place their faith in Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord. He gives them confidence of an eternal place in heaven with God and desires to fill each believer continually with increased power for Christian life and witness, and imparts His supernatural gifts to equip believers for Godly living and ministry in the world.

 

Community of Believers

We believe all truth is God’s truth. Within our community we believe the above to be core truths. We desire to allow freedom of conviction on other matters, provided they do not conflict with the Bible nor become an issue of division.
