Our Statement of Faith
At Whitefish Christian Academy our academic community pursues its integrated course of learning knowing that, because God has created the world, there is order and meaning in all that we study. At the center of that guiding and essential belief is that the Scriptures are true and that within them we find our Rule of Faith (2 Timothy 3:16).
In the following you may find our official Statement of Faith, which mirrors the primary tenets of the Christian faith as held throughout the history of the Church, and which anchors our Academy as a classical, Christian school.
We believe: That all the Words of the Scriptures, both Old and New Testament, are the inspired and true Words of God, the complete revelation of His will, and the final authority for all Christian faith and life,
In one sovereign God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and externally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, That Jesus Christ is true God and true man, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, that He died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins and was raised from the dead according to the Scriptures, that he ascended into heaven, where He now sits at God's right hand as Lord of lords and King of kings, and that He will return bodily to this earth in power, glory, and judgement,
That the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, to indwell, guide, enlighten, and empower the believer for godly living and service, and to convict men of their sin, of God's righteousness, and of the judgment they face apart from Christ,
That man, whom God created in His image to rule the earth on His behalf, rebelled against God, fell into sin, and therefore is guilty and powerless to save himself,
That we can be saved from God's judgment only by personally trusting in Jesus Christ, God's dear and only son who He lovingly provided as a perfect sacrifice for our sins and who He raised from the dead for our justification, victorious over death, the head of a new order of humanity,
That the true Church, the new order of humanity, God's kingdom, is composed of all who trust in the Lord Jesus Christ alone for their salvation and who are therefore united together in His body of which He is the head.
