Statement of Faith
We are aware that our families come from varying denominational backgrounds and that doctrinal beliefs may differ, yet it is our position that the Bible presents a great deal of truth with which we can all agree. As a result, our teachers are encouraged to place their focus on such truths, avoiding potentially divisive, doctrinal issues. It is important to us at Legacy Alliance that parents entrust their children to instruction of other individuals and institutions understand what spiritual principles are held.
We believe that:
- There is only one God (Deut. 6:4).
- God has chosen to reveal Himself to man through the Godhead (Col. 2:9), the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Col 1:15, Jn. 1:1,14, Jude 25); the Bible supports this “Doctrine of the Trinity” (Matt. 28:19, Luke 3:22).
- The Bible (comprised of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments) is the inspired, inerrant Word of God revealing the will of God in all things necessary to our salvation (2 Tim. 3:15-17, 1 Ptr. 1:20,21).
- Jesus is both fully human and fully God (Phil. 2:5-8, Heb. 4:15); that He is “the expressed image of the invisible God” (Col. 1:15); and that He is to be worshiped, praised and adored (along with the Father and the Holy Spirit) not only for what He has done, but for who He is: the Son of God and God the Son (Rev. 5:8,9).
- Jesus was born of a virgin and “became flesh” (Jn. 1:14, Matt. 1:18).
- Jesus voluntarily suffered death by crucifixion and He became the great sacrifice of God “to take away the sins of the world” (Jn. 1:29).
- Jesus rose from the grave in triumph over Satan, hell, and death, winning the position and name above all others, so that no one can be saved by any other way, or by any other name than Jesus’ (Phil. 2:9-11, Acts 4:12).
- Salvation is a free gift by God’s grace (Jn. 3:16, Eph. 2:8, 1 Jn. 1:9).
- A person is saved only by faith in Jesus’ finished work on the cross, and that if this faith is real it will produce repentance – a change of mind regarding sin and everything that is not pleasing to God – that results in a change of actions and attitudes (Acts 2:37,38, Matt. 3:8, James 2:14,26).
- The Holy Spirit was sent to the World to both convict the world of sin, and to empower believers to be good and faithful witnesses to God’s glory and purpose (Jn. 16:8, Lk. 24:49, Is. 43:10, Acts 1:8, 2:1-4)
- Jesus will physically return to the earth one day to judge the earth and its inhabitants (Rev. 6:9-10, 19:11-16).
- Learn – Provide an environment for students to be academically challenged and equipped to pursue higher education and/or careers where they can use their minds to honor and glorify God.
- Love (Christ Centered Community)– Establish a community for students and families to thrive in an environment of godly relationships, building each other up in love for the works of service to which God calls them.
- Lead – Seeking God’s will and modeling the grace and life of Christ, prepare to become effective leaders for His glory.
- Launch – With a biblically-centered worldview foundation, enter and engage the world with confidence and grace welcoming the opposition of a lost world to lead others to the kingdom of God.
