1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative word of God. The Bible reveals God, the fall of man, the way to receive salvation, and God’s plan and purpose in the past, present, and in eternity.

2. We believe that salvation is a free gift from God offered to man by grace and must be received through faith apart from any works.

3. We believe in the deity, virgin birth, and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ.

4. We believe that salvation is by grace, and that the conditions to salvation are repentance and faith. We believe that people are justified by faith alone and are accounted righteous before God through Jesus Christ.

5. We believe in the personal return of Jesus Christ, in the eternal damnation of the wicked, and in everlasting life with the Living God for the righteous.

6. We believe that children are the gift of God to parents, whose duty it is to insure that they receive a quality Christian education.

7. We believe that there are two ordinances of the local church-Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

8. We believe that it is the responsibility of all believers, the church- the body of Christ, to take the Gospel to the whole world.

We believe, and we are certain that you will agree, it is the Lord Who will lead you to study at our school. The following only serves to assist you as you make your decision under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

He was a prolific bible teacher, a nurturing pastor of thirty years, a loving husband, and a wonderful father of five. He impacted the lives of many. He is gone but never forgotten. His legacy lives on.

He is the loving husband of his beautiful wife, Angela, and the father of their three children. He has conducted Love for the Family seminars, providing extraordinary biblical principles to obtaining and maintaining a successful marriage and family.
