Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith 

We do hereby adopt the Statement of Faith of Parkway House of Prayer to guide King’s Christian Academy. 

We believe in the Trinity. We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. 

We believe in the one true, living, sovereign God. We believe that God the Father is Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient. We believe that God is eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We believe God is the all-powerful creator of the Heavens and earth, that He called creation into existence with His sovereignty, that He created the world in 6 days of creation and rested on the 7th day, that He remains intimately involved with His creation, and that He sustains and governs His creation.

We believe in the deity of our Lord, Christ Jesus. Jesus is God incarnate and was manifest in human flesh. He was like us in all ways except for one, being free from sin. We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died as the ultimate sacrifice as the lamb without blemish, rose from the dead on the third day, and ascended into Heaven, where He intercedes on our behalf. We believe in His coming return as Judge and His eternal rule.

We believe in the Holy Spirit; that He is the third person of the Trinity. We believe the Holy Spirit is the ‘Spirit of Truth” sent to indwell in believers as a teacher who will “remind you of everything that I [Jesus] have ever told you” (John 14:6). We believe the Holy Spirit equips believers for service and draws them closer to God.

We believe that human beings are the unique creation of God, created in His image, set above all of creation. We believe human beings were created innocent of sin but willfully sinned against the Father, bringing death and sin. As a result, all humans (except Jesus, the sinless lamb of God), are born into this sin and need the redemption of the Father. Only by the grace of God, through the blood of Jesus, can one become washed white and adopted into the family of God. We believe human beings were created with a purpose, that they reflect unique attributes of being created in the image of God, and that there is no distinction in value based on culture, race, ethnicity, class: all are seen equal in the eyes of God and worthy of respect and love. We believe that God created humanity as male and female, that this truth is affirmed in Scripture and by Jesus. We believe that human beings were created to serve the Lord, have dominion over the earth, and to be fruitful and multiply in a holy union between man and woman. 

We believe that Satan is the enemy of God, a fallen angel who wanted to be like God. We believe that the sin and evil that abide in him are conquered by God and the sacrifice of Jesus.

We believe in salvation by grace. This is a free gift from God, given to all who believe in His Son Jesus, the Christ, and accept Him as the Lord of their life. We believe that Salvation through grace alone saves; humans are unable to save themselves through work or sacrifice. We believe that faith and works are outward demonstrations of a life that has been saved by grace.

We believe Scripture to be the inerrant Word of God, useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16-17). We believe that God revealed Himself in Scriptures. We believe that the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is the verbally inspired Word of God and is the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. </span>
