Statement of Faith


Our staff and students come from a variety of Christian traditions, but we unite around our commitment to the Bible as God’s word. We affirm the following core doctrines held in the Apostle’s Creed and the Nicene Creed:

  • We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.
  • We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father. God from God, light from light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father; through him all things were made.
    Who, for us and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary and became truly human.
  • For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, on the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures.
  • He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.
  • We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.
  • We believe in one universal and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look forward to the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
