Statement of Faith
We believe in the Scripture of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired by God, inerrant in the original writing, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and practice.
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.
We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is eternal separation from God.
We believe that God created Adam and Eve, labeling them male & female and man & woman. Biological sex and gender are divinely connected and represent the image of God in people.
We believe that God has ordained marriage solely as the exclusive union of one man and one woman.
We believe that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and, in the case of those who reach moral responsibility, become sinners in thought, word, and deed.
We believe that any form of sexual immorality (including but not limited to adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, and use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to God.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our own sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood.
We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His Ascension into Heaven, and in His present life there for us as High Priest and Advocate.
We believe in "that Blessed Hope": the personal, visible, premillenial and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
*This Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe. The Board of Directors of Aurora Christian Schools is the final interpretive authority on the Bible's meaning and application for the purposes of Aurora Christian Schools' faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline.
