Newberry Christian Community School, in partnership with home and church, exists to provide a distinctive Christ-centered education in a nurturing environment which equips young people to excel in life and service to Jesus Christ.
Statement of Faith
Newberry Christian Community School views itself as an indispensable part of the three major forces on the life of each child: the home, the school, and the church. The school intends to be an extension of the home and, therefore, a responsive listener to the home. The school is committed to a program of excellence which strives for the best instruction through the use of the best materials in facilities of the highest quality.
Newberry Christian Community School is being founded and functions upon the basic fundamental principles of the Word of God, and it espouses the historic Christian view of life as presented in the BIBLE. Our Statement of Faith and practices are held by every employee, director and school family of Newberry Community Christian School.
The following declaration expresses the common Christian faith of the Board of Directors of this corporation and shall be agreed upon and duly signed, by all Newberry Community Christian School employees and student families.
We believe the Bible to be the only Word of God, inerrant, infallible, totally expressing His purposes to mankind. We accept the Bible as our final authority; the all-sufficient and complete rule for faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; I Peter 2:15)
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God the Father, Creator and Ruler of the universe from Whom all life exists (Genesis 1:1; Genesis 14:22; Colossians 1:17); Jesus Christ, God the Son, sent to take the form of a man to put God’s great plan for humanity into effect (John 17:5; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 1:2); God the Holy Spirit, revealing Jesus Christ and God’s plan to the Christian and bearing witness to God’s work in our world. (John 16:13-14; 1 Corinthians 2:9)
We believe in the person of Jesus Christ, God’s only eternal Son. Born of a virgin, He lived a sinless life; performed mighty miracles; died for the sin of the whole world; rose again to conquer sin, death, and Hell; ascended to the right hand of His Father to intercede on our behalf; and will return to earth again for those who have personally accepted forgiveness of sin through Him. (Isaiah 7:14; Hebrews 7:26; 1 Corinthians 15: 3-4)
We believe that all mankind is born sinful and separated from God, requiring individual repentance and forgiveness through the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, as absolutely essential to be in right standing again with God. (Romans 10:9-17; John 3:16; Titus 2:11-13)
We believe in the continuing ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. (Ephesians 5:18; 4:30; 1 Corinthians 3:16)
