The Bible to be the inspired, only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21)
There is one God, eternally existent in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30)
In the deity of Christ (John 10:33), His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35), His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11), His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9), His resurrection (John 11:25, 2 Corinthians 13:4), His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19), and His personal return in power and glory. (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11)
In the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God's grace and through faith we are saved. (John 3:16-21, 5:24, Romans 3:23, 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:3-10, Titus 3:5)
In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:28-29)
In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.(Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Galatians 3:26-28)
In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (Romans 8:13-14, 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20, Ephesians 4:30, 5:18)
That God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary sexes 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. Therefore, believers should refrain from any and all attempts to physically change, alter, or disagree with their predominant biological sex---including but not limited to elective sex-reassignment, transvestite, transgender, or non-binary “genderqueer” acts or conduct (Genesis 1:26-28, Romans 1:26-32, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11).
The term "marriage" has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scriptured (Genesis 2:18-25). Marriage between one man and one woman, for life, uniquely reflects Christ's relationship with His Church (Ephesians 5:21-33). We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other (I Corinthians 6:18, 7:2-5; Hebrews 13:4). No intimate sexual activity should be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.
Any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, cohabitation, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, prostitution, voyeurism, pedophilia, exhibitionism, polygamy, polyamory, sologamy, or use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to God (Matthew 15:18-20; 1 Corinthians 6:9-13, Leviticus 18:7-23, Leviticus 20:10-21, Deuteronomy 5:18, Matthew 5:27-28, Romans 1:26-27, 1 Thessalonians 4:3, Hebrews 13:4, Galatians 5:19, Ephesians 4:17-19, Colossians 3:5).
God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ (Acts 3:19-21; Romans 10:9-10; I Corinthians 6:9-11).
Every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity (Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31). Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture nor the doctrines of Covenant Christian Academy.
All human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other state or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life.
