• We believe the Bible to be verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit in the original manuscripts, and to be the infallible and authoritative Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:21)
  • We believe in the Triune Godhead in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit — three persons and yet but one God. (Deuteronomy 6:4: Matthew 28:19; I Corinthians 8:6)
  • We believe in the personality of Satan, called the Devil, and his present control over unregenerated mankind. (Genesis 3:1,14,15; II Corinthians 11:14; Luke 10:18; Ephesians 6:11,12; 2:2; Revelation 12:9,10)
  • We believe in the fallen and lost estate of man, whose total depravity makes necessary the new birth. (Romans 3:10,23: John 3:3)
  • We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, death, bodily resurrection, present exaltation at God’s right hand, and personal and imminent return. (Colossians 1:15; Matthew 1:18-25; Matthew 28:1-10; Acts 1:9-11; Hebrews 1:1-4; I Thessalonians 4:16-18)
  • We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed for the forgiveness of our sins. (John 1:12; Acts 4:12; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-10; I Peter 1:18-19)
  • We believe in the resurrection of the saved unto everlasting life and blessedness in heaven, and the resurrection of the unsaved unto everlasting punishment in hell. (I Corinthians 15:50-58; Revelation 20:4-6; 11-15; II Thessalonians 1:7-10)
  • We are members of the church, The Body and Bride of Christ, consisting only of those who are born again, for whom He now makes intercession in heaven and for whom He shall come again. (Acts 13:38,39; Acts 2:41; Ephesians 1:3-6; I Corinthians 12:12,13; Revelation 11:15-17)
  • We believe Christ’s great commission to the Church to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature, baptizing and teaching those who believe. (Matthew 28:18-20)
  • We believe marriage is ordained of God and is a spiritual and physical union in which a man and a woman are joined by God to live together as one. (Genesis 2:24; Mark 10:7) We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. We believe that any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, transgenderism, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex and identity. (Genesis 2:24; Genesis 19:5, 13; Genesis 26:8-9; Leviticus 18:1-30; Romans 1:26-29; I Corinthians 5:1; 6:9; I Thessalonians 4:1-8; Hebrews 13:4)
  • We believe that God wonderfully foreordained and immutably created each person as either male or female in conformity with their biological sex. These two distinct yet complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. (Genesis 1:26-27).

Final Authority for Matters of Belief and Conduct: The statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe. For purposes of Keswick Christian School’s faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, our board of directors is Keswick’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.
