Statement of Belief

The following are the essential beliefs on which Heritage School is based. They are also the key elements of Christianity that will be taught unapologetically in various ways through all grade levels. The substance of these statements constitutes the primary doctrine at Heritage School.

We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of both the Old and New Testaments, i.e., that the very words of the original Scriptures are infallible and inerrant and that they are our final and absolute authority in every area of life and knowledge.

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three co-equal persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and that He is both undiminished deity and genuine humanity in one person forever.

We believe that God, the Holy Spirit, is a personal being who convicts the world of sin and who regenerates, indwells, empowers, guides, gifts, and seals believers for God.

We believe that man was created by a direct act of God in His image, not from previously existing life; that all men sinned in Adam (the historical father of the entire human race) and thus incurred both physical and spiritual death; and that all men have inherited a sin nature.

We believe that Jesus Christ died as a substitutionary sacrifice for our sins and that through faith in Him as Lord and Savior, we are declared righteous by God.

We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, totally apart from human merit, and that the experience of regeneration produces a new creature in Christ.

We believe that faith without works is dead.

We believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead - physically and bodily - and that He ascended in like form into heaven, where He continually ministers as our Great High Priest and Advocate.

We believe in the literal, visible, bodily return of Jesus Christ to this earth.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.

We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that all believers are under the mandate of Jesus Christ to proclaim the Gospel to the entire world.
