Statement of Faith

The following is the foundation of beliefs on which Trinity Christian School (TCS) is based. They are also the key elements of Christianity that will be unapologetically taught in various ways through all grade levels. The substance of these statements is that which will be considered primary doctrine in TCS. All board members and staff of TCS must adhere to these foundational principles. Secondary or divisive doctrines and issues will not be presented as primary doctrine. When these types of doctrine or issues arise, they will be referred back to the family and local churches for final authority.

  • We believe the Bible (containing 66 books Old and New Testament) to be the only inspired, inerrant, authoritative Word of God. (II Tim. 3:16)
  • We believe that there is one God, creator of all things, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. (Deut. 6:4; Gen. 1:1, I John 5:7)
  • 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 visible return in power and glory. (John 10:30; Matt. 1:18; Heb. 4:15; John 10:32; Rom. 3:25; Matt. 28:6; Rom. 8:34; Luke 21:27)
  • We believe that for the salvation of all lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary. (John 3:3-8)
  • We believe that salvation is by grace through faith alone. (Eph. 2:8)
  • We believe that faith without works is dead. (James 2:17)
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (Gal. 5:16)
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved to the resurrection of life, and they that are lost to the resurrection of condemnation. (I Thes. 4:16,17; II Thes. 1:9)
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (John 17:20-23)

Concerning Human Sexuality:

  • We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. We believe that any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex. (Gen 2:24; Gen 19:5,13; Gen. 26:8-9; Lev. 18:1-30; Rom. 1:26-29; 1 Cor 5:1, 6:9; 1 Thess. 4:1-8; Heb. 13:4)
  • We believe that the only legitimate marriage is the joining of one man and one woman. (Gen 2:24; Rom 7:2; 1 Cor 7:10; Eph. 5:22-23)
