STATEMENT OF FAITH
The Statement of Faith reflects Loganville Christian Academy’s belief as it relates to faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline. Our Board of Trustees have drafted and approved this statement in its entirety and have resolved that this is our firm position on how the Scripture is interpreted and applied. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God, speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind and, as such, is the sole and final source of all that we believe.
We believe the Bible tells the story of God’s glory and his plan of salvation for humanity. As God’s revelation of himself, we believe the Bible is inspired by God. The Holy Spirit worked through human authors to record God’s work of redemption. This record is found in the 66 books that comprise the Old and New Testaments. We believe the Bible is accurate, authoritative, true, and is sufficient to teach us how to live in relation to God (2 Timothy 3:16–17; 2 Peter 1:20–21; Luke 24:27; John 17:17).
We believe there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each Person is distinct in their role, yet sharing the exact same divine nature. God is the Creator, Sustainer, and Ruler of all that exists. We believe God is personal and relational and has chosen to reveal himself through his creation, the Bible, and most clearly in the person of Jesus Christ (Romans 3:30; Matthew 28:19; John 1:2; Genesis 1:1; Hebrews 1:1–3; Psalm 19).
We believe in Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, who became human, lived a sinless life, and through many miracles gave witness to the truth. His life, his death, and his resurrection from the dead are the only hope for humanity’s reconciliation with God. He has ascended into heaven, and we await his bodily return in power and glory (John 1:1–3, 14; Hebrews 4:15; John 18:37; 1 Corinthians 15:3–4; 2 Corinthians 5:18–19; Acts 1:9; Luke 21:27).
We believe that all people are created in God’s image, male and female, to have fellowship with God and with each other. Each person has inherent value and dignity from conception (Genesis 1:26–27; Psalm 139:13–16).
We believe that humanity, because of sin, has been alienated from fellowship with God. Sin has corrupted human nature, resulting in a separation from God that cannot be restored through human efforts. We are born in sin and, apart from Christ, we would desire to live independent of God (Psalm 51:5; Colossians 1:21; Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:1–3).
We believe that sinful humanity is reconciled to God by grace through faith alone in Jesus Christ. God, in his love and mercy, has provided the means of covering sin and renewing fellowship with himself, namely, by the blood of Jesus Christ and his death on the cross. There, Jesus took the place of sinners and provided the righteousness they needed to find acceptance with God (Ephesians 2:8–9; 1 John 1:7; 2 Corinthians 5:18–19, 21).
We believe the Holy Spirit renews our fellowship with God, teaches us truth, and produces in us a godly life. Through the Holy Spirit we receive power to follow Christ, to desire to do his will, and to preach the gospel to the world. The Holy Spirit produces in our lives evidence of new life and works through us to accomplish the work that Christ began during his ministry (2 Corinthians 13:14; John 16:13; Galatians 5:22–23).
We believe that God designed marriage and defined it in the Bible as the lifelong covenant between one man and one woman; all forms of sexual activity outside of biblical marriage fall short of that design (Genesis 2:18–25; Ephesians 5:22–33).
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 the purposes of Loganville Christian Academy’s faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, our Trustees provide the final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application for the principles of Christian education at Loganville Christian Academy.
Principles of Christian Education
WE BELIEVE that prayer is vitally important to undergird the oneness we have in Christ as a Loganville Christian Academy family.
WE BELIEVE parents are the primary educators of their children spiritually, physically, socially, and emotionally.
WE BELIEVE that the Christian school should partner with the parent to provide a Christian education for the child. Compromises will not be made when philosophy is based on Scripture.
WE BELIEVE that the Bible and religious training are a part of every aspect of the Christian school program.
