Statement of Faith
The authority for this Association is the Holy Scripture and its teaching as understood in the literal, grammatical, and cultural sense and shall be binding on this Association as long as it exists. Every statement, regulation, and provision of the by-laws of this Association must be in harmony with and applied in harmony with the relevant teaching of the Scriptures. No statement, policy, or action shall be taken that infringes upon or contradicts the teaching of the Scriptures as interpreted by the following doctrinal statement:
Section 1: We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are inspired by God, and are inerrant in the original writings, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.
Section 2: We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Section 3: We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth and His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His future personal return in power and glory.
Section 4: We believe that for the salvation of the lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
Section 5: We believe in the 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.
Section 6: We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Section 7: We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive covenant union, as delineated in Scripture (Genesis 2:18-25) and that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other and that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity is engaged in outside of marriage between a man and a woman (Genesis 1:27–28; 2:21–24; Matthew 19:4–9; Mark 10:5–9; Ephesians 5:22–33).
Section 8: We believe that God wonderfully foreordained and immutably created each person as either male or female in conformity with their biological sex. These two distinct yet complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God (Genesis 1:26–27). Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.
Section 9: We expect employees to maintain a lifestyle based on biblical standards of moral conduct. Moral misconduct, which violates the bona fide occupational qualification for employees to be Christian role models, includes, but is not limited to, promiscuity, homosexual behavior and/or sexual orientation, bisexuality, polygamy, transgender identity, or any other violation of the unique roles of male and female (Exodus 20:14; Leviticus 18:7–23; 20:10–21; Deuteronomy 5:18; Matthew 5:27–28; 15:19; Romans 1:21-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9-20).
Section 10: We believe that the function and integrity of its employees requires that they must be born-again Christians, living their lives as Christian role models (Romans 10:9-10; I Timothy 4:12), maintaining a lifestyle based on biblical standards of conduct. Failure to do so may result in a reprimand or, in some cases, dismissal from employment. It is the goal of the school that each employee will have a lifestyle where "...He might have the pre-eminence." (Colossians 1:18).
Each member of the Board of Directors and each employee of Peoria Christian School, having accepted Jesus Christ as personal Savior, shall subscribe annually in writing to the Statement of Faith.
