Rockbridge Christian Academy
Statement of Faith
The Rockbridge Christian Academy is founded and functions upon the basic fundamental principles of the Word of God, and it espouses the historic Christian view of life as presented in the BIBLE. The following statements of faith and practice are held by every Rockbridge Christian Academy employee and school family:
1. We believe the Bible to be the verbally inspired and only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:21)
2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, John 10:30, John 10:37-38)
3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in 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 personal return in power and glory. (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35, Hebrews 7:25, John 2:11, Hebrews 9:12, Ephesians 1:7, Colossians 1:14, John 11:25, Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11-16)
4. We believe that man is sinful by nature and that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential and an absolute necessity for his salvation. (Romans 3:19,23, John 3:16-19, John 5:24, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5-6)
5. We believe in the continuing ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. (Ephesians 5:18, Ephesians 4:30, I Corinthians 3:16, I Corinthians 6:19-20)
6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost. Those who are saved unto eternal life and those who are lost unto eternal damnation. (John 5:28-29)
7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:9, II Corinthians 12:12-13, Galatians 3:26-28)
8. We believe in the creation of man by the direct act of God. (Genesis 1:26-28, Genesis 5:1-2)
Our Statement of Faith is fundamental to basic Christian tenets and contains those doctrines to which we unreservedly adhere and teach.
In honoring the purpose and outreach of the school, there shall be no attempt by student, teacher, or parent to promote denominational positions. We desire to remain united in the salvation and love of Christ, avoiding the dissension which may be caused by denominational distinctives.
