At Florence Christian School we believe…
- In the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired of God, and inerrant in the original writing, and that because of their origin and purpose, they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life and all areas to which they speak (2 Peter 1:21, 2 Timothy 3:16, James 1:22-25, 2 Peter 1:3-8).
- In one living and true God, who is an infinite and omniscient Spirit, the maker and supreme ruler of heaven and earth (Exodus 20:2,3, Psalm 147:5) and is worthy of all possible honor, trust and love.
- That the Genesis account of creation is to be accepted literally, not allegorically or figuratively; that man was created directly in God's own image and was not a matter of evolution or evolutionary change of species; that all animal and vegetable life was an intentional and voluntary act on the part of God (Genesis 1-2).
- That Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, and born of Mary, a virgin, and is true God and true man. Jesus Christ is not a created being, but has existed from eternity and was active in the creation of the world (John 1:1, 8:56-58).
- That man was created in the image of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also that spiritual death which is separation from God: and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and, in the case of those who reach the age of moral responsibility, are sinners in thought, word and deed (Genesis 3, Romans 3:10, 23, 5:12-17).
- That the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood (Isaiah 53, Ephesians 2:8,9, Hebrews 2:14-18).
- In the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and in His present life there as High Priest and Advocate (Matthew 28:6, 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4).
- That all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby become children of God (John 1:12, John 3).
- That Jesus Christ is coming again to take His church out of the world (John 14:1-3, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18), at which time the tribulation begins and will end at His coming to earth to rule and reign for 1,000 years as King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Matthew 24:29-31, Revelation 19:11-21).
