campbell river christian school statement of faith
The basis of the society shall be the Word of God. We believe the Word of God reveals the following:
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant and only infallible authoritative Word of God.
There is one and only one living eternal and only God, existent in three Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in divine perfection, and executing distinct and harmonious offices in the work of redemption and sanctification.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God and is truly and eternally God, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life performing many miracles, died a vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, bodily rose from the dead, and ascended to the right hand of the Father to one day personally return in power and glory.
The Holy Spirit convicts of sin, of righteousness, and judgment and dwells in every believer from the moment of conversion to enable the Christian to live a Godly life.
Original man was created sinless but because of his disobedienceto God separated himself and all mankind from God by Sin.
Reconciliationto God or salvationof sinful men is wholly of God's grace through the redemptive death of Jesus Christ.
Salvationis a result of a personal faith in Jesus Christ and His redemptive work and is a new birth, a new creation, and is instantaneous.
Baptism as practiced in the New Testament church was by immersion into the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit, and is a command from Jesus Christ.
Satan is a person and is the god of this world, man's great tempter, the enemy of God, and is destined to final defeat at the hand of God's Son, Jesus Christ, and to suffer eternal punishment along with those that reject God, in a place prepared for him and his angels.
There is a resurrection of both the saved and lost; the saved unto the resurrection of life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
Civil government is divine appointment for the interest and good order of society; that magistrates are to be prayed for conscientiously, honoured and obeyed except only in the things opposed to the will of God as revealed in His Word.
