Statements of Faith and Purpose

Statement of Faith

New Covenant Christian School is home to many Christian denominations. Thus, when we touch on doctrine and theology, we hold to our statement of faith, as follows. On points that are not addressed by our statement of faith, we allow individual families and their home churches to have the definitive word on what the Bible teaches. 

The Bible: We believe the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God, and it is our standard for faith and practice.

God: We believe in the one triune God revealed in the Bible. He is Creator, Redeemer, and the Sovereign Ruler of creation. He is the Author of truth, love, and faith.

Sin:  We believe that man was created in the image of God. Through disobedience mankind is separated from God, and without God he is without hope in this life and in the life to come. Man’s salvation is totally the work of God whereby He solemnly binds Himself to all who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, bringing them from the state of eternal separation and sin to the state of reconciliation and glory through faith in Jesus.

Jesus Christ: We believe in Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God, who was crucified and died substitutionally for man’s sin, was buried, raised from the dead on the third day, and ascended to the right hand of God the Father. The scriptural evidence that one has repented from sin and put his faith in Jesus Christ includes public confession of Jesus as Lord and water baptism.

Covenant Life: We believe all who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and King are part of His Kingdom and should live in covenant loyalty with one another. This means laying down our lives for one another, and on a daily basis, learning to forgive and love one another as brothers and sisters.

Church: We believe that the very nature and purpose of God is revealed in His Church. The Church is Christ’s Body on earth. We believe that the Church Universal consists of all believers, while the Church Local is a body of believers baptized and joined together, practicing the new covenant. Since the Church is one as God is one, the Church Local must seek to walk in harmony with the Church Universal. 

Holy Spirit: We believe there are many experiences which are valid encounters with God. “Baptism in the Holy Spirit,” being “filled with the Holy Spirit,” and “being anointed by the Holy Spirit” are among those scriptural terms used to describe such encounters. These experiences should produce greater commitment to God’s will, greater realization of His power, and greater edification of His church. Moreover, we believe that the Holy Spirit imparts gifts or abilities greater than our own to accomplish His will. These gifts include miraculous healings, revelations, and utterances. These gifts ought to be operative in the Church, supervised by mature leaders, and ministered in love by Christians whose lives reflect Godly character.

Ecumenism: We believe God views His people as one people. This is true historically and currently. There exists in all our people a deep prayer to see God’s people walk together in peace.

Christ’s Return: We believe in the visible return of Jesus Christ to manifest His government on the earth. We believe Christians should longingly look for His appearing, giving full attention to obedience while He tarries. We believe that the righteous who have died and are now with Him will be resurrected at His appearing.

Conclusion: These principles of our faith are foundational for God’s continuing leadership in our lives. We realize that our statement of faith does not relieve us of the responsibility to live by faith. We gratefully acknowledge those who have served in ages past, and we bless them in their eternal state for their faithfulness. We acknowledge those who serve Jesus Christ now, even when their doctrinal expressions may be different from our own. We desire to walk with them as brothers and sisters. Our statements are not to be construed as walls but as doors through which others may communicate with us and we with them.

Statement of Purpose

New Covenant Christian School, a ministry of New Covenant Christian Church, exists as a response of faith and obedience on the part of committed Christian parents and members of New Covenant Christian Church to the mandate from our sovereign God with respect to the education, training, discipline and nurture of the sons and daughters He has entrusted to our care. Therefore, the school is to be the manifestation of the commitment of such parents to fully embrace the responsibility to provide an opportunity and environment within which their children may, by the grace of God, grow “in wisdom, stature and good standing with God and man.” To these ends they have enlisted, and will through future generations continue to enlist, the support of called and anointed teachers and the resources of the Body of Christ.

The school shall provide an environment where righteousness, peace and joy reign supreme under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Everything shall be taught and lived subject to and in the light of the Word of God. It is to be a place where young people can be encouraged to find, prepare for and begin to fulfill their unique and specific destinies in the Kingdom of God, thus offering a significant contribution to the improvement, welfare and moral integrity of the society in which we live.

Thus, through this divinely ordained and supernaturally empowered partnership between home, church and school, each new generation will be prepared for all aspects of life as men and women called of God to disciple nations and extend the Kingdom of God throughout the whole Earth.
