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.
