STATEMENT OF FAITH
Calvary Baptist School teaches the essential doctrines of the Christian Faith embraced by the historic, Biblical, Baptist position. These doctrines are summarized here from the “Articles of Faith” of Calvary Baptist Church.
BIBLE: We believe that the Bible is divinely inspired, inerrant in the original writings,
and the supreme authority in faith and life.
GOD: We believe that there is one living and true God, existing eternally in three
persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
JESUS CHRIST: We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born
of the virgin Mary and is true God and true Man.
HOLY SPIRIT: We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells each believer from the moment of
Salvation, that speaking in tongues and the “divine healing” movements are not
related as outward evidence of the Spirit-filled life; and that the Spirit-filled life
should be the normal experience of every believer.
MAN: We believe in the literal Genesis account of creation and that man is born in sin,
is totally depraved and cannot save himself.
SALVATION: We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose again from
the grave, that salvation is a free gift received by faith, and that if we are born
again by the Holy Spirit, we are saved eternally.
SECOND COMING: We believe in the personal, premillennial, and imminent coming again of
Jesus Christ for His Church.
ETERNAL STATE: We believe that every believer in Jesus Christ will be raised to life forever
in heaven and that every unsaved person will be raised to everlasting punishment.
CHURCH: We believe that the true church is the body of baptized believers organized to
meet together to observe the two ordinances of baptism by immersion and
the Lord’s Supper, to meet for Bible teaching, and to carry out the principles,
precepts, and commission of Jesus Christ. We believe also that the true Church is
the body of Christ and that all regenerate believers are its members.
