FOUNDATION ACADEMY STATEMENT OF FAITH
Foundation Academy’s Statement of Faith summarizes Biblical truth that has historically and doctrinally been regarded as essential to the Christian faith. We require that all our administrators and faculty be in full agreement with this statement.
We believe that the Scriptures were written by men divinely inspired by God, and that both the Old and New Testaments are inerrant and are the supreme and final authority for faith and life.
We believe in the One True and Living God who exists in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three Persons are one God having precisely the same nature, attributes, and perfections.
GOD THE FATHER
We believe that God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. He is all-powerful, all loving, and all wise. God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.
GOD THE SON
We believe that Christ is the eternal Son of God. We believe in His incarnation and Virgin Birth: His Death on the cross as the substitutionary atonement for sin; His literal, bodily Resurrection from the dead; His present ministry of intercession in heaven; and His personal, future return to earth.
GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, convicts men of sin, regenerates, baptizes, indwells, seals, and sets apart believers unto a holy life; that He keeps and empowers believers day by day; that He is the Teacher of the Word of God and the Guide for daily living.
We believe that man was created innocent and pure, and Adam fell through the sin of disobedience. Therefore, all men are corrupted in body, soul, and spirit; and all men need redemption.
We believe that salvation is by grace, a free gift of God apart from works, and that salvation requires repentance, a turning from one’s own way to God’s way. Salvation is through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and all who receive Jesus Christ are regenerated by the Holy Spirit and become the children of God, and true salvation will be manifested by a changed life.
We believe in the personal, visible, bodily return of Jesus Christ to the earth, and in the bodily resurrection of the saved to an eternal abode in the glorious presence of the Living God, and in the bodily resurrection of the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment in the lake of fire.
