"And that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you
the wisdom that leads
to salvation through faith
which is in Christ Jesus."
2 Timothy 3:15
STATEMENT OF FAITH
The Statement of Faith is the foundation of beliefs on which First Baptist Academy is based. These beliefs will be unapologetically taught in various ways through all grade levels. The substance of these statements is considered primary doctrine at First Baptist Academy. When issues arise in the classroom that are secondary or divisive doctrines or issues, these issues will not be presented as primary doctrine, and will be referred to parents for final authority.
We believe that the Bible as comprised of the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired and inerrant Word of God.
We believe in one God, eternally in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity and humanity 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.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the sole mediator between God and man.
We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned, and therefore will be eternally separated from God without the blood of Jesus Christ.
We believe that salvation is by grace, through faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus died for the sins of man, so that all who believ in Him are cleansed by His blood and will spend eternity in the presence of God.
