Statement of Faith

Cornerstone Family Schools Statement of Faith: 
As a Christian organization, the following statement of faith expresses the basics of our beliefs: 
1.   We believe the Bible to be the only fully inspired, infallible, inerrant and authoritative written Word of God.  (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:21) 
2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  (Genesis 1:1; John 10:30, 37, 38) 
3. We believe in the full deity and full humanity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His Sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious, substitutionary atonement through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.  (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35; Hebrews 4:15, 7:25, 9:12; John 2:11, 11:25; Colossians 1:14, Acts 1:11; Revelations 19:11, 16) 
4. We believe that the human race is fallen in Adam and that the salvation of lost and sinful man depends upon the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ and is made effectual by grace through faith.  (Romans 3:23; John 3:16, 19, 4:24; Ephesians 2:8, 9; Titus 3:5, 6)

5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling and filling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.  (Ephesians 5:18, 4:30; I Corinthians 3:16, 6:19, 20) 
6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they who are saved unto the resurrection of life and they who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:28, 29) 
7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that all disciples are called to attend, worship and serve Him in a local congregation or fellowship that is part of His Body, the Church. (Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 12:12, 13; Galatians 3:26, 28)

8. We hold as belief and conviction that children are given by God as a stewardship to the parent and not the state and that parents have the wherewithal and authority to teach and educate their own children. (Proverbs 22:6, Deuteronomy 6:6-7, Ephesians 6:4, Psalms 127:3-5) 
9. We believe that man was created in the image of God and that, from the moment of conception, each bears His image.  (Genesis 1:26, 28; 5:1, 2) 
10. We believe marriage constitutes the union between one biological man and one biological woman.  (Genesis 2:22-24, Matthew 19:4-6, Hebrews 13:4-7, Mark 10:6-9, 1Corinthians 7:10-16) 
11. We believe that sexual immorality, those sexual acts committed outside of marriage, are prohibited and sinful. Such acts include, but are not limited to: adultery, fornication, incest, prostitution, pedophilia, polygamy, same-sex acts/relationships. (Exodus, 20:14, Leviticus 18:7-23, Leviticus 20:10-21, Deuteronomy 5:18, Matthew 15:19, Matthew 5:2728, Romans 1:26-27, Colossians 3:5, Ephesians 4:17-19, Galatians 5:19, Hebrews 13:4, 1 Thessalonians 4:3, 1 Corinthians 6:9-13) 
12. We believe that God created mankind in His image: male (man) and female (woman), sexually different, but with equal personal and human dignity. Attempts to physically alter or disagree with one’s predetermined biological sex, including but not limited to: elective sex reassignment, transvestite, transgender, or non-binary “gender-queer” acts or conduct is prohibited and sinful.  (Genesis 1:26-28, Romans1:26-32, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11) 
13. We believe that God created and ordered human sexuality to the permanent, exclusive, comprehensive, and conjugal “one-flesh” union of biologically ordered man and biologically ordered woman, intrinsically ordered to procreation and biological family, and in furtherance of the moral, spiritual, and public good of binding father, mother, and child. Consequently, we affirm the sexual complementarity of man and woman and resist any and all same-sex sexual attractions and refrain from any and all same-sex sexual acts or conduct, which are intrinsically disordered. (Genesis 1:27, Genesis 2:24, Matthew 19:46, Mark 10:5-9, Romans 1:26-27, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, Ephesians 5:25-27, Revelation 19:7-9, Revelation 21:2)
