Statement of Faith
We believe the whole Bible in the original manuscripts, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inerrant word of God, inspired by God, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of man, and the Divine and ultimate authority for all Christian faith and life.
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus Christ is the true God and true man, conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, and ascended into Heaven, where, at the right hand of God the Father, He now is our Mediator, High priest, and Advocate. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Trinity, who is equal in power and coexistent with the Father and the Son. His ministry is to convict men, regenerate believing sinners, and indwell, guide, instruct, and empower believers for godly living and service.
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but in Adam, man has fallen into sin and incurred condemnation and both physical and spiritual death. As a sinner, man is completely helpless and in need of God for salvation.
We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who respond in repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences of grace. Repentance is a genuine turning from sin toward God. Faith is the acceptance of Jesus Christ and commitment of the entire person to Him as Lord and Savior. There is no other way of salvation apart from Jesus Christ. All the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God’s power, forever secured in Jesus Christ.
We believe that the true church is composed of all such persons who, through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the Head. The Church is to bring glory to God. We also believe that water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the church during the present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation.
The Second Coming of Christ
We believe in the personal and imminent coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. We also believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead. The believers will be resurrected into everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord and the unrighteous to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
Marriage & Sexuality
We believe that the term “marriage” has only one, legitimate meaning, and that is marriage sanctioned by God, which joins one man and one woman as their genders were determined by anatomy at birth (and not subject to change) in a single, covenantal union, as delineated by Scripture. Whenever there is a conflict between the Ministry’s position and any new legal standard for marriage, the Ministry’s statement of faith, doctrines, and biblical positions will govern. (Gen. 2:24; Eph. 5:22-23; Mark 10:6-9; I Cor. 7:1-9)
We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity and, therefore no cohabitation be engaged in outside of marriage as defined above. We believe that any other type of sexual activity, identity, or expression that lies outside of this definition of marriage, including those that are becoming more accepted in the culture and the courts, is contradictory to God’s natural design and purpose for sexual activity. (Gen. 2:24; Gen. 19:5; Lev. 18:1-30; Rom. 1: 26- 29; 1 Cor. 5:1; 6:9-10; 1 Thess. 4:1-8; Heb. 13:4)
We believe that God creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, unchangeable genders together reflect the image and nature of God, and the rejection of one's biological gender is a rejection of the image of God within that person. (Genesis 1:26-27)
Protection of Children
We believe that children are from the Lord and must be absolutely protected within the school from any form of abuse or molestation. The school has zero tolerance for any person, whether paid staff, volunteer, or visitor, who abuses or molests a child. (Ps. 127:3-5; Matt. 18:6, 19:14; Mark 10:14)
We believe that we should demonstrate love for others, not only toward fellow believers, but also toward those who are not believers, those who oppose us, and those who engage in sinful actions. We are to deal graciously, humbly, gently, and patiently with those who oppose us. God forbids the stirring up of strife, the taking of revenge, or the threat or use of violence as a means of resolving personal conflict or obtaining personal justice. Although God commands us to abhor sinful actions, we are to love and pray for any person who engages in such actions. (Lev. 19:18; Matt. 5:44-48; Luke 6:31; John 13:34-35; Rom. 12:9-10; 17-21; 13:8-10; Phil. 2:2-4; 2 Tim. 2:24-26; Titus 3:2; I Peter 3:8-9; 1 John 3:17-18)
Disputes within the Church
We believe Christians should work to resolve disputes within the body of Christ. We therefore believe that all disputes unable to be so resolved must be handled through binding Christian arbitration. (1 Cor. 6:1-8; Eph. 4:31-32)
我們相信整本新舊約聖經都是神所默示的，經文的原本絕無錯謬，是神對 人類救贖計劃 的完全啟示，也是信徒信仰與生命的最高權威。
我們相信人是神按自己的形象所造的。因亞當的過犯，世人也都犯罪而墮 落，在神永刑 的審判之下，以致肉體和靈性死亡。惟有藉著神的救恩，人才能得著拯救。
我們相信耶穌基督的流血和復活，是我們稱義和得救的唯一根據。人只有 向神悔改並相 信耶穌基督，才能得救。悔改和信心是恩典中不能分割的經驗。悔改是真誠地離開罪惡 並且歸向神，信心是全人接受耶穌基督作他的救主和生命的主宰。除了耶穌基督以外， 再沒有其他方法人可以得救。人得贖後，就蒙神能力的保守，一次得救，永遠得救。
我們相信真的教會是由一切憑信接受耶穌基督，且被聖靈重生，並連於基 督身體的信徒 所組成。基督是教會的元首。教會目的為榮耀神。我們相信洗禮和聖餐是教會在今世代 所遵守的聖禮，但這些聖禮並非得救的條件。
我們相信主耶穌基督隨時會親自再來世上。我們相信死人會身體復 活，信徒復活後，與 主同在，享受永遠的福樂，不義的人則受審判，沉淪在永遠知覺的刑罰中。
我們認為“婚姻”一詞只有一個合法的含義，就是上帝命定的婚姻及聖經所描述的聖約 聯合, 那就是上帝將一男一女結合在一起 (一男一女的性別是由出生時的身體結構決定 的,並且不能改變)。 當以上這立場與任何新的婚姻法案發生衝突時， 皆以本校的信仰宣 言、教義及聖經立場為準。 （創 2:24；弗 5:22-23；馬可福音 10:6-9；哥林多前書 7:1-9）
我們相信上帝的誡命,更不可違背上述神命定的婚姻定義和結構, 這包括不可在婚姻之外 發生親密性行為或同居。 我們相信在神命定的婚姻定義之外的任何其他類型的性行為、 性別表達，包括那些在社會文化和法庭中越來越被接受的性活動，都與上帝對性行為的 自然設計和目的互相抵足。 （創 2:24；創 19:5；利 18:1-30；羅馬書 1:26-29；林前 5:1；6:9-10；帖前 4:1-8 ；希伯來書 13:4)
我們相信上帝創造每個人為男性或女性。 這兩種截然不同的、不可改變的性別共同反映 了上帝的形象和本質，拒絕自己生來的性別就是拒絕自己內在上帝的形象。 （創世記 1:26-27）
我們相信孩子們是上帝賜予的，必須在學校內受到絕對保護，免受任何形式的虐待或騷 擾。 學校對任何虐待或性騷擾兒童的人，無論是學校職員、志願者、 或是訪客，都採 取零容忍的態度。 （詩篇 127:3-5；太 18:6, 19:14；馬可福音 10:14）
我們相信,並應該表現出對他人的愛，不僅是對信徒，對非信徒、反對我們和行在罪惡中 的人也應當如此。 我們要以恩慈、謙卑、溫柔和耐心的方式對待他們。 上帝禁止煽動 衝突、報復、威脅或使用暴力作為解決個人衝突或獲得個人目的的手段。 雖然神勸戒我 們憎惡罪惡的行為，但我們要愛所有行在罪惡中的人並為他們祈禱。 （利 19:18；馬太 福音 5:44-48；路加福音 6:31；約翰福音 13:34-35；羅馬書 12:9-10；17-21；13:8- 10；腓立比書 2:2 -4；提後書 2:24-26；提多書 3:2；彼得前書 3:8-9；約翰一書 3:17- 18 )
我們相信基督徒應該努力解決基督肢體間的爭端。 因此，我們認信，所有內部無法解決 的爭議都必須通過具有約束性的基督教仲裁來處理。（哥林多前書 6:1-8；弗 4:31- 32）。
