STATEMENT OF FAITH

The Statement of Faith, which all parents must read and agree to adhere to before applying for any child to be enrolled, is the basic framework of Christian teaching and learning at North Georgia Christian Academy. You can download a copy of the Statement of Faith Here

  • We believe that the 66 books making up the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible were written by men divinely inspired and are the record of God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. It reveals the principles by which God judges us, and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. The criterion by which the Bible is to be interpreted is Jesus Christ. (II Tim. 3:16, II Peter 1:21)
  • We believe in God, the Father Almighty, the creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He arose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
  • We believe God is a triune God-the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Luke 3:22, Matt. 28:19)
  • We believe in the majesty and sovereignty of God. (Luke 1:37, Rev 1:8)
  • We believe that God spoke and purposefully created the universe out of nothing. (Gen. 1:1)
  • We believe that God created man in His own image. At the fall of Adam, this image was broken, resulting in man’s total depravity. Through their relationship to Adam, all men are sinners by nature. (Gen. 3:1-24)
  • We believe in God’s gracious plan of redemption through Jesus’ atoning bloodshed on Calvary, as described in The Holy Bible. (Eph. 2:8, I Peter 18-19)
  • We believe the Lord Jesus Christ, “The Word made Flesh,” is the eternally existing; only begotten Son of the Father, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. As God, He became flesh, dwelt among us, and knew no sin; as man He was God. (Luke 1:35, Heb. 4:15, John 1:14)
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the only Savior of sinners, the only way to the Father. He died as a substitute for sinners and was raised from the dead so that they might be reconciled to God. (John 14:6, I Cor. 15:12-21)
  • We believe that all who receives by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby become children of God and are eternally secure in Christ. (John 1:12) (Romans 8:38-39)
  • We believe that eternal life is a free gift that is received through faith in Jesus alone.  Eternal life is neither deserved by anyone, nor can it be earned by good deeds. (Eph. 2:8-9)
  • We believe Jesus Christ died for our sins, was buried, and on the third day rose from the dead; we believe that He appeared to men who touched Him and knew His bodily presence and that He ascended to His Father and is now acting as High Priest and Advocate.  (Rom. 5:8, Matt. 28:5-10, Heb. 4:15)
  • We believe that persons not under the covenant of God’s saving grace are condemned to a literal place of eternal punishment and separation from God.  God’s word reveals that there will be a final judgment of man the consequences of which lead either to heaven or hell. (Rom. 2:5-11)
  • We believe in the actual existence of Satan who is the father of all evil and the adversary of God and man. He is a liar and the truth is not in him. (John 8:44)(Matt 10:10)
  • We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. (Gen 1:26-27.) Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.
  • We believe that any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, and use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to God. (Matt 15:18-20; 1 Cor 6:9-10.)
  • We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. (Acts 3:19-21; Rom 10:9-10; 1 Cor 6:9-11.) 
  • We believe that Biblical marriage is limited to a covenant relationship between one biological born man and one biological born woman (Matthew 19:4–6).
  • We believe that God’s Word clearly condemns homosexuality and abortion as sinful activities and are not considered alternate lifestyles or life choices that should be embraced or taught as acceptable behavior. (Romans 1:24-28, Prov. 6:16-17) 
  • We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life. (Ps 139.)
  • We believe that the chief end of man is to glorify God and be with Him forever. (Ps. 61:7-8) 
  • We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. (Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31.) Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture nor the doctrines of NGCA.

 

Final Authority for Matters of Belief and Conduct:

 This 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 North Georgia Christian Academy, Inc ’s faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, our Board of Directors is NGCA’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application as pertaining to the operation and function of the organization in whole or in part. 

Policies and procedures are created and amended by the Board of Directors and may be amended or given exception; based solely as a case by case basis when circumstances arise within the interpretation or validity of any policy without setting precedent on that policy or any other policy given the approval of the majority of the school board. 

Statement of Position and Policy of Facilities Use

As the concept – that “sexual liberty” trumps religious freedom – continues to sweep across our nation impacting schools, churches, ministries, and Christians, North Georgia Christian Academy, Inc declares the following position on transgender facility use.

We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. (Gen 1:26-27.) Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.

Biological sex means the biological condition of being male or female as determined at birth based on physical differences, or when necessary, at the chromosomal level.

Facilities Use Policy: Notwithstanding any other board policy, student, faculty, and guest restrooms, locker rooms, and showers that are designated for one biological sex shall only be used by members of that biological sex. In any other school facilities or settings where a student, staff member, or guest may be in a state of undress in the presence of other students or adults (that is, changing costumes during school theatrical productions, arrangements on overnight fieldtrips, athletic events and so forth), NGCA shall provide separate, private areas designated for use by students, staff, and visitors according to their biological sex.
