Doctrinal Beliefs/Statement of Faith

Shoals Christian School is a ministry of the participating/sponsoring churches.  While it is not our purpose to promote a particular doctrine to our students, we boldly affirm the basis of our Christian faith as stated below:

  1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired; the only infallible authoritative, inerrant Word of God (II Timothy 3:15-16; II Peter 1:21).

  2. We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30).

  3. We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9); His resurrection (John 11:25; I Corinthians 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11).

  4. We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature; and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace and through faith alone we are saved (John 3:15-19; 5:24; Romans 3:23; 5:8-9; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5).

  5. 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 (John 5:28-29).

  6. We believe in the spiritual unity of all true believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28).

  7. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit whose indwelling and empowering of the Christian enables him to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14; I Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:30; 5:18).

  8. We believe in the sanctity of human life concerning both the born and unborn and acknowledge abortion and euthanasia are contrary to the Word of God (Exodus 20:13; Psalm 92:14-15; Jeremiah 1:5).

  9. We believe man is created in God's image, male and female created He them (Genesis 1:27), and sexual deviation and homosexuality are an abomination to God and contrary to His Word (Leviticus 18:22).

  10. We believe in the personality of Satan, who is the supreme supernatural adversary and is the leader of the forces of evil (I John 3:8, 4:7).  Satan has been overcome by the life and atonement of Jesus but he continues to try to gain control over us (I Peter 5:8).
