Statement of Faith

Cross Classical Academy’s Statement of Faith is fundamental to historic Christian tenets and contains those doctrines to which we unreservedly adhere and teach. Beyond these primary doctrines, Cross Classical Academy respects and acknowledges that many secondary doctrinal questions exist among the true Body of Christ. We defer to parents and their local evangelical churches to instruct their children on these points and to clarify these issues. It is our desire to maintain this position and to do so in all fairness to each family. In honoring this desire concerning the outreach of this ministry, there shall be no attempt made by parents, students, staff, or academy board members to promote or disparage any doctrinal or denominational beliefs, practices, or positions regarding issues upon which Cross Classical Academy itself has assumed no official stance. We desire to remain united in the salvation and love of Christ, avoiding the dissention that may be caused by denominational distinctives.

TRINITY: We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; Colossians 2:9; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

  • God the Father: We believe the Father is fully God, and His fatherhood is eternal and personal. He is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, and of all who believe in Christ. (Genesis 1:1; 2 Corinthians1:3; Ephesians 4:4-6; 2 Corinthians 6:18)
  • God the Son: We believe in the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His atoning death, salvation through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His coming return. (Matthew 1:18-25; John 1:1-2, 14; 3:16-18; Acts 1:9-11; Romans 5:8-11; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 1:20-23; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 4:14-15; 7:25; 1Thessalonians 4:16-17)
  • God the Holy Spirit: We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all believers. He, likewise, convicts of sin, increases desires for righteousness and obedience, leads in truth, brings assurance, empowers, and gives spiritual gifts to the church. (John 3:3-8; 14:16-17; 16:7-11; 1 Corinthians 2:13; 12:11-13; 2 Peter 1:20-21)

BIBLE: We believe the Bible to be the only inerrant, authoritative Word of God, and that it is, therefore, the final authority in matters of faith and practice. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21)

SALVATION: We believe that the death of Christ is the only means by which we can be made right with God on the basis of Christ’s righteousness and atoning death on the cross. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ alone can we be forgiven for our sin. (John 1:12-13; 6:37-40; 10:28-30; Ephesians 1:7, 13; 2:8-9; 1 John 5:11-13)

HUMAN NATURE: We believe all people are created in the image of God, to be like Him in character. Our sin alienates us from God, makes us liable for His judgment, and ultimately results in eternal death apart from God’s salvation. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 1:18-23; 3:23; 5:12; 6:23; Eph. 2:1-3)

CHRISTIAN LIFE: We believe it is God’s will that through the Holy Spirit, we continually grow in grace, in obedience, and in our love for Him until we get to heaven and are made perfect in Christ. (Romans 6:1-8; 1 Corinthians 6:11; Philippians 1:6, 2:13)

ETERNITY: We believe in the bodily resurrection of all people. We believe in a literal heaven and hell, and that all men will either spend eternity under God’s just and holy judgment or in His glorious presence. (Daniel 12:2; Matthew 25:31,46; John 5:28-29; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52; 2 Thessalonians 1:9)

CHURCH: We believe that believers comprise the Church which is the Family of God, the Body of Christ and the Temple of the Holy Spirit, and that it is expressed in local churches. It was created by God to display His glory on the earth by reaching out to people who do not know Him, lifting up worship to Him, loving one another as His family, growing in maturity to be like Christ, and serving others in His name. (Matthew 26:26-29; 28:18-20; Acts 2:42-47; 1 Corinthians 12:1-27; Ephesians 1:22-23; 3:10; Colossians 1:18; 1 John 3:14-18)
