The Board of Trustees, administration, faculty and staff of Lubbock Christian School hold to the following doctrinal beliefs and will endeavor to operate with these beliefs serving as the fundamental and guiding principles for all aspects of our organization:
a. The Bible is the inspired, authoritative Word of God and is therefore recognized and taught in our school as absolute truth.
(2 Timothy 3:15; 2 Peter 1:21)
b. Knowledge of God and His omnipotent nature is the most important type of knowledge and serves as the foundation for all learning. (Proverbs 1:7; Proverbs 2:10-11; Romans 1:20)
c. There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30)
d. Our Lord Jesus Christ is deity (John 10:33); born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35); lived a sinless life on earth in the form of a human being (Hebrews 4:15; Hebrews 7:26); performed miracles (John 2:11); atoned for the sins of man through His death on the cross (1 Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9); was resurrected from death (John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:4); ascended to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); will return in power and glory (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11).
e. Adam, the first man, sinned by disobedience. This act resulted in the fall of all mankind; therefore, all people have sinned and lost their ability to live for the glory of God. Every person’s sin incurs both physical and spiritual death until there is forgiveness and salvation by the grace of God. (Genesis 3:1-24; Romans 3:10-23, 5:12-21, 6:23)
f. Salvation from one’s sin comes only one way: grace through faith in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2). Obedient faith leads one toward a Christ-centered life and submission to baptism in imitation of His death, burial, and resurrection (Romans 6), for the gifts of forgiveness of sins and the indwelling Holy Spirit (Acts 2).
g. The Holy Spirit indwells in Christians, enabling them to live godly lives. (Romans 8:13-14; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:30; Ephesians 5:18)
h. Christians are called to the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthian 12:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28)
i. In the beginning God created mankind in His image, and man is not in any sense the product of evolution. (Genesis 1:27, 31)
j. Men and women were created distinctively by God further, His intent for all people is that they live distinctively male or female as He created. (Genesis 1:27-28; Genesis 1:21: Psalm 139:14)
k. Marriage is a union designed by God and only between a man and a woman. (Genesis 2:22-24; Mark 10:6-9)
l. Human sexuality is part of God’s designed creation and to be experienced and enjoyed in a monogamous marriage relationship between a man and a woman only. (1 Corinthians 7:2; Hebrews 13:4)
m. The church is the body of Christ and the family of God. It is made up of saved believers, who regularly assemble for worship, fellowship, and ministry. (Matthew 16:18; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Hebrews 10:25)
n. It is the responsibility and privilege of every Christian to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ and to seek to make growing disciples. (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8)
o. In addition to these beliefs, we also believe that God has given the parents and the home the responsibility to bring up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. (Ephesians 6:4; Proverbs 22:6) We believe that a consistent and whole education will occur when home, church, and school work closely together and are unified on the basic biblical concepts established in the bible
