Statement of Faith
We believe in the verbal inspiration of both the Old and New Testaments, i.e. that the very words of the original Scriptures are infallible and inerrant and that they are our final and absolute authority in every area of life and knowledge. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; Isaiah 40:8)
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three equal persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (2 Corinthians 1:21-22; Ephesians 4:4-6)
We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and that He is both undiminished deity and genuine humanity in one person forever. (Luke 1:35; Matthew 1:23; John 1:1,14)
We believe that God the Holy Spirit is a personal being who convicts the world of sin, regenerates, indwells, empowers, guides, bestows spiritual gifts on believers, and seals believers eternally for God. (John 16:8; Titus 3:5; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Acts 1:8; Romans 8:14; 1 Corinthians 12:4; 2 Corinthians 1:22)
We believe that man was created by a direct act of God in His image, not from previously existing life; all men sinned in Adam (the historical father of the entire human race) and thus incurred both physical and spiritual death; all men have inherited a sinful nature. (Genesis 1:27; Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:1-3; Romans 5:12-13)
We believe that Jesus Christ died as a substitutionary sacrifice for our sins and that through faith in Him as Lord and Savior, we are declared righteous by God. (1 John 2:2; John 3:16; Romans 3:22)
We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, totally apart from human merit, and that the experience of regeneration produces a new creature in Christ, eternally secure. (Ephesians 2:8-9; 2 Corinthians 5:17; John 10:27-29)
We believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead, and that He ascended into heaven, where He continually ministers as our great High Priest and Advocate. (Luke 24:6-7; Hebrews 4:14; 1 John 2:1)
We believe that this age will be consummated by the literal, visible, bodily return of Jesus Christ to this earth. (Hebrews 9:28; Revelations 22:12)
We believe in the resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost. (Acts 24:15; John 3:16-18)
We believe that all believers are under the mandate of Jesus Christ to proclaim the Gospel to the world. (Matthew 28:19)
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 139:13)
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 the purpose of Heritage Christian Academy’s faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, our Board of Trustees is Heritage Christian Academy’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.
Statement on Marriage, Gender and Sexuality
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.) Rejections of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person. HCA recognizes a student’s gender as that which is denoted on the student’s original birth certificate as presented from a recognized authority of the State of Texas or other such governing body authorized to issue birth certificates for their citizens.
We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. (Gen 2:18-25.) We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. (1 Cor 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb 13:4.) We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of marriage between a man and a woman.
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 in order to preserve the function and integrity of Heritage Christian Academy as a local Body of Christ, and to provide a biblical role model to its members and the community, it is imperative that all persons employed by HCA in any capacity, or who serve as volunteers, agree to and abide by this Statement on Marriage, Gender, and Sexuality. (Matt 5:16; Phil 2:14-16; 1 Thess 5:22.)
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 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 Heritage Christian Academy.
