Statement of Faith

The basis of Asheville Christian Academy is the Word of God. In the light of this Word, we in our education program stand committed to the following:
 

  1. The Bible is the Word of God, verbally inspired and inerrant as originally given, and is the supreme and final authority in faith and life.
  2. God is Triune - one eternal God existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Man is created in His image. Creation and providence are revelatory of Him.
  3. Christ is God manifested in the flesh, born of a virgin. He lived a sinless life, suffered and died on our behalf; and He arose bodily from the grave, ascended, and is coming again in power and glory. Christ is the only mediator between God and man.
  4. Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely fundamental to Christian life and should be basic in all preparation for life. By God's grace only and through faith alone are our children, and we saved from sin and its evil consequences.
  5. The present ministry of the Holy Spirit is to indwell the Christian, enabling him to live a godly life.
  6. There will be a bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
  7. The spiritual unity of believers is in our Lord Jesus Christ.
  8. Parents are responsible for the education of their children. To bring them up in the Lord, they, through the agency of a Board, employ teachers who give evidence of a born-again life and who manifest ability to educate children morally and intellectually in the light of God's Word.
  9. The pupils, being images of God, must be subject to His sovereign rule in their lives. Creation and providence (that which is taught), being God-revealing, must be presented as such. Such teaching makes for God-consciousness without which no Christian teaching is possible.
  10. The doctrines stated in the first nine sections of Article II are essential and indisputable. Some other doctrines have been debated by evangelical Christians over the centuries. It is the school’s policy that students not be deprived of robust examination of any Biblical text, but it is always to be done with respectful consideration of the various historical interpretations. Additionally, a student raising a question concerning such a doctrine should be referred to his or her parents or pastor.
