Philosophy of Education & Statement of Faith
Berean Christian School Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the verbally inspired Word of God, the only and final authority for faith and life, inerrant, infallible, and God inspired.
We believe in one triune God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice and that our justification is made sure by His literal physical resurrection from the dead.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to heaven where he ministers as our Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate.
We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that through Adam’s sin the race fell and was alienated from God.
We believe marriage is ordained of God and is a spiritual and physical union in which a man and a woman are joined by God to live together as one. (Genesis 2:24; Mark 10:7)
We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. (Gen 2:18-25.) We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. (1 Cor 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb 13:4.) We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.
We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins.
We believe in the Blessed Hope, the personal, imminent, coming of the Lord Jesus Christ for His redeemed ones and in His subsequent return to earth to establish His kingdom.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment.
Philosophy of Education
God has given parents and families the responsibility of teaching their children the truths of Scripture and developing in them a Christ-like character. We believe the Church was ordained by God to help families and individuals to carry out these spiritual responsibilities. This is why Berean Bible Church has made a commitment to providing quality, Christian education that includes discipline, as well as various methods of instruction to equip God’s people.
This commitment is demonstrated by our providing Berean Christian Day School, Berean Christian High School, Berean Christian Home School, Berean Christian High School (ISP), and Bible classes. Our society is growing more and more secular and we believe it is necessary to create a learning environment for children where spiritual truths can be integrated into all areas of their lives.
Berean Christian School fully endorses Biblical standards. We believe the Bible to be the inspired word of God and the final authority for life’s decisions. This is why Berean Christian School has a policy that should a family not adhere to Biblical standards in the home, it will result in suspension by the school board. A thorough review by the board will be necessary before reinstatement occurs.
