Statement of Faith (Tenets and Core Beliefs)

1. WE BELIEVE the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible word of God.

2. WE BELIEVE that there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

3. WE BELIEVE that Mankind was created good, but lost the hope of life eternal, destroyed his communion with God, and fell under the bondage of sin and death by rebelling against God’s perfect way of life.

4. WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is God’s eternal Son, who redeemed mankind. As true God and true man, He was born of a virgin through the Holy Spirit, taught men how to live through His sinless life, took the consequences of our sin upon Himself in His passion and death upon the Cross, arose bodily from the dead on the third day after His death, was seen by His disciples, ascended to the right hand of the Father and will return in power and glory.

5. WE BELIEVE that all are sinners, that all are called to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, that no one can come to the Father, except through Jesus Christ and that no one can come to faith in Christ, repent and attain holiness, but by the grace of God.

6. WE BELIEVE as a gift from God, sexual intimacy is to be experienced only between a man and a woman within a marital relationship.  We believe, therefore, that any other form of sexual intimacy is not in keeping with God's plan for mankind.

7. WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit is freely given to those that believe in Jesus Christ, that the fruits and benefits of Christ’s redemption are applied to us individually by the Holy Spirit, and that the Holy Spirit lives in us and enables us to live Godly lives.

8. WE BELIEVE that at the end of the age there will be two resurrections: one to eternal life and glory, the other to eternal condemnation.

Statement of Ethical and Moral Integrity

Oaks Christian School is a non-denominational Christian school and as such religion will be taught in a way that would be supported by students' local churches. Oaks Christian School does not endeavor to teach theology such that conflict between church and school is created.

Oaks Christian School believes that the Bible gives specific guidelines regarding moral conduct and that verbal, physical, or sexual abuse, and sexual conduct outside of marriage, is inappropriate. The school will not knowingly hire individuals who engage in such conduct.

Oaks Christian School prohibits the harassment of one employee by another employee or supervisor on the basis of age, race, color, handicap, national origin, and/or sex.

Please only choose one and if you choose that you support with exceptions, you must explain why.

I fully support the Statement of Faith and Declaration of Ethical and Moral Integrity as written and without reservations.
 

If you do not support or fully support the Statement of Faith and Declaration of Ethical and Moral Integrity please explain.

 

Biblical Worldview

Oaks Christian School’s Biblical Worldview

Oaks Christian School’s Biblical Worldview is an overarching view of the world based on God’s revealed Truth in the Bible, which informs our knowledge of God, the Good News of His Son Jesus Christ, Creation, Humanity, Moral Order, and Purpose, and thus provides direction for our lives.

God:  There is One God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—who created and sustains all things.  God is infinite, eternal, transcendent, all-knowing, all-powerful, ever-present, and sovereign over all His creation. God chooses to reveal and express Himself to humankind through His creation, the Bible, His Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

Truth: God’s ordered universe and revealed Word communicate objective truth that can be rationally investigated and known. All truth ultimately points us to Jesus Christ, who is Himself Truth and through whom we can have a saving relationship that restores us to God.  We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, and that it is true.

Good News: God the Father, out of His abundant love, sent His Son Jesus Christ as a sacrifice for humanity.  Jesus’ suffering, blood, and death on the cross paid the price for sin once and for all, and His resurrection confirms that He is the Son of God. His sacrifice was complete and the power of death over humanity was broken. His resurrection assures those who put their faith and trust in Him of eternal life with Him.  Through the work of the Holy Spirit, Jesus invites humanity into a transforming relationship with Himself. Through repentance and faith in Jesus, all who accept the gift of salvation through God’s grace are accepted into the Kingdom of God to become new creations, fully alive in Christ and provided with the assurance of eternal life with Him.

Creation:  God created a good world and assigned its stewardship to humanity.  Through humankind’s sinful choice to break relationship with God, creation was corrupted causing evil, pain, suffering, and death to enter the world.

Humanity:  God created humankind in His image and likeness. He has gifted each with rationality, creativity, and a moral conscience. Human beings of all races and ethnicities, both born and unborn, are valuable as individuals created in His image. We are privileged to commune with God through worship and prayer.

Moral Order:   God makes Himself known through His Creation and Scripture and has established His moral law in human hearts so that they can discern right from wrong, good from evil, and justice from injustice. Therefore, humankind will give an account before God for choices made throughout life.

Purpose:  God created each person with an eternal plan and earthly purpose. God fulfills humanity’s search for this meaning and purpose through a relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ.  Meaning and purpose are most fully enjoyed as people learn to love Him and love one another.
