Statement of Faith
San Jacinto Christian Academy, its Board of Trustees, faculty, and staff hold and subscribe to a strong fundamental, evangelical statement of doctrine.
The academy was founded by a Baptist church and is governed by a Board and Administration of Bible-believing leaders; even so, the mission and focus of this institution is non-denominational. We believe denominational beliefs and preferences ought to be taught at church and in the home. The school will emphasize the traditional, fundamental, and historic essentials of Christian belief and practice, while emphasizing the need of a relationship with Christ and Christian growth.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21).
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30).
We believe in the deity of Christ (Matthew 3:17), His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23), His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11), His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7), His Bodily resurrection (John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:4), His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19), and His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11).
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. Only by God's grace and through faith alone we are saved (John 3:16-19; John 5:24; Romans 3:23; 5:8-9; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5).
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 punishment (John 5:28-29).
We believe that man was created by a direct act of God in His image, not from previously-existing life (Genesis 1:1,22,27; 1 Corinthians 11:7; James 3:9).
We believe that marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in a covenant relationship before and under God (Genesis 1:27, 2:18-24; Romans 1:26-27; I Corinthians 7:2-3; Ephesians 5:31-33)
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28).
We believe in the indwelling ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose presence the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:30; 5:18).
