Statement of Faith


We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative word of God.


We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons—Father, Son, and

Holy Spirit.


We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles,

His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His

ascension to the right hand of the Father, and that He will return to claim those who

belong to Him.


We believe in the fall and consequent moral depravity of mankind, resulting in our

exceeding sinfulness and subsequent spiritual death, thus necessitating our obedience to

be born again of water and Spirit (John 3:5).


We believe, “…when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us,

not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us

through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us

generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we

might become heirs having the hope of eternal life” (Titus 3:4-7).


We believe in the present and continuing ministry of sanctification by the Holy Spirit by

whose infilling the believing Christian is cleansed and empowered for a life of holiness

and service.


We believe in the Resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved to

the Resurrection of eternal life and those who are lost to the resurrection of eternal



We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. The following are

fundamentals held to be essential and Friendship Christian expects faculty and staff not

only to believe in them, but to practice them in daily living:


Caring, effective love both of God and humanity

A Christ-like unity and acceptance among believers

A lifestyle dedicated to God's will in society

A growing, victorious state of mind because of the indwelling Christ

A daily affirmation of Christ as Lord

A willingness to serve the Lord, even if it means sacrifice

A desire to be more sensitive to the personal work of the Holy Spirit

A working faith in God's promises for all needs and daily life situations

A witness for Christ without hypocrisy

A firm, committed desire to be God's person
