Statement of Belief

Westminster Christian School is a Christ-centered educational institution. Our Statement of Belief reflects basic tenets of Reformed Theology, which is the doctrinal basis for Westminster Christian School and informs our curriculum. It is intentionally brief:

  1. We believe that God is a Triune God – The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  2. We believe that the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.

  3. We believe that man is created in the image of God and that although God created humanity in His image with the ability to live perfectly for His glory, man disobeyed God. Because of this original disobedience, every individual is a sinner by nature and does himself practice sin. Man is thus alienated from God, his neighbor, and the world. All are sinners.

  4. We believe that because all people are sinners and have lost their ability to live perfectly, they cannot enter Heaven and eternal life through their own actions.

  5. We believe that it is solely by God’s grace, through faith in Jesus Christ alone as personal Savior and Lord and His perfect righteousness imputed to the individual, that the sins of any individual are forgiven; and, with that forgiveness, eternal life in Heaven is granted.

  6. We believe that the Holy Bible is the divine, inspired, and infallible Word of God and is the only rule of authority for all matters of faith and obedience.

  7. We believe that God has given parents or guardians the responsibility of bringing up their children in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord.” We believe that a most consistent and meaningful education will result when the home, the school, and the church are in agreement on the basic concepts of life.

  8. We believe that all of the world is a part of God’s creation and He is sovereign over and in all things, and that every academic subject must be taught and interpreted from a Biblical perspective.
