CURTIS BAPTIST SCHOOL STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe there is one God: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, who subsist in unity and also as three separate distinct Persons.

We believe that there is one, and only one, living and true God. He is the creator of heaven and earth, inexpressively glorious in holiness and worthy of all our honor, confidence and love. We believe that the Godhead externally exists as three persons in one – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – a teaching known as the Trinity.

We believe Jesus Christ is God’s Son. He was born of a virgin as both God and man, lived a sinless life, died to atone for the sins of human beings, was buried, arose from the grave, ascended into heaven and will literally return to earth.

We believe the Holy Spirit is the divine helper, assistant, counselor and instructor and His work is to reveal Christ, to convict of sin, to lead to repentance, to guide believers, to comfort, to strengthen, and to sanctify the soul

We believe the Bible is God’s Holy Word, without error and is the sole authority for life

We believe human beings are the special creations of God, made in His image. They fell through the sin of the first man, Adam, and all human beings are sinners in need of salvation.

We believe that 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 stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life (Ps 139).

We believe salvation is a gift through repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ. Every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ and will spend eternity in heaven, while those who die in their sins will spend eternity in hell.

We believe baptism is by immersion after salvation and is done in obedience to Jesus Christ’s command.

We believe each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe the Church (Curtis Baptist Church) is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.

We believe marriage means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife, and that a spouse refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife.

We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God (Gen 1:26-27). Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.

We believe marriage means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife, and that a spouse refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife.

We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture (Gen 2:18-25). We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other (1 Cor 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb 13:4). We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.

We believe that any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, and use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to God (Matt 15:18-20; 1 Cor 6:9-10).

We believe that in order to preserve the function and integrity of Curtis Baptist School, and to provide a biblical role model to employees, students, families and the community, it is imperative that all persons employed by Curtis Baptist School in any capacity, or who serve as volunteers, agree to and abide by this Statement on Marriage, Gender, and Sexuality (Matt 5:16; Phil 2:14-16; 1 Thess 5:22).

We believe that 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; Rom 10:9-10; 1 Cor 6:9-11).

We believe that 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 Curtis Baptist School.

Curtis Baptist School adheres to the doctrine of Curtis Baptist Church as stated in The 2000 Baptist Faith and Message. For full description see Curtis Baptist Church Statement of Doctrine.

The statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe. For purposes of Curtis Baptist School’s faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, our church leadership and school leadership are Curtis Baptist School’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.
