Basis of Faith
We ask that our staff and families subscribe to this basis of faith:
1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible authoritative Word of God.(2 Peter 1:20,21;2 Timothy 3:15,16)
2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)
3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Philippians 2:6-11, 1 Peter 3:18, Hebrews 2:9, Romans 5:9, Acts 2:23,24, Hebrews 8:1, Matthew 26:64)
4. We believe that for salvation of the lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. (Titus 3:4-7)
5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (1 Thessalonians 5:23, Acts 1:8)
6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (1 Corinthians 15:20-23, John 5:28, 29)
7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 1:22,23, Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 2:41-47)
Diversity of Doctrines
Christian School of York recognizes the wide diversity of belief among its Association members, an association committed to our mission of banding together for the purpose of raising our children to love and serve the Lord. Christian church distinctive and individual convictions that go beyond the Basis of Faith are represented among the membership and must be given all due respect.
These distinctives, however, must not be practiced or promoted in any way that would undermine the essential unity of the Association and its purpose. Therefore, distinctive doctrines and practices related to baptism, the Lord’s Supper, the Holy Spirit, or any other doctrine that might undercut the Association’s spirit of unity, should not be openly or privately advocated or practiced by adults or students in any classes, meetings, or other gatherings of this Association, formal or informal, for whatever purpose.
