Students acknowledge their understanding of and agreement with these essential truths which are vital to the Gospel. All students are required to affirm the following Statement of Faith:
The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments (excluding those books commonly called the Apocrypha) are the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
There is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Our Lord Jesus Christ is God and man in one person. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, and vicariously atoned for sin through His shed blood and death. He was bodily resurrected from the dead. He ascended to the right hand of God the Father and will personally return in power and glory.
Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the salvation of lost and sinful man.
God justifies the sinner on the basis of Christ’s righteousness alone, which is imputed to him by grace alone and which is received by faith alone.
Eternal life is received by faith, that is, by trusting in Jesus Christ alone for salvation.
The Holy Spirit indwells all true believers and enables them to live godly lives.
Both the saved and the lost will be resurrected from the dead; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto resurrection of damnation.
There is spiritual unity of all true believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
