Charity Homeschool – Purpose and Statement Of Faith
Scripture states in Rev. 4:11 that the entire purpose of God’s creation is to bring Him pleasure. Therefore the first and most important purpose of Charity Homeschool is to please Him.
With that in mind, Charity Homeschool is a Christian based homeschool support group which seeks to encourage, support, inform, and provide fellowship to area homeschooling families. Because Jesus Christ is the only living example of how to perfectly please the Father, it is the intention of Charity Homeschool to fulfill its purpose in a manner consistent with the life and ministry of Jesus.
Our secondary purpose is to be a testimony of Christ and an example of Christian homeschooling to the communities in which we live and work. Using Col. 3:12-17 and Eph. 5:2 as a guide, Charity Homeschool will strive to practice grace, compassion, and Christian love towards its member families and the community.
Statement of Faith
1. The Bible to be the inspired, infallible, divinely preserved Word of God, the supreme and final authority for all faith and life.
2. That there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
3. In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substituting and atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, and His imminent bodily return in power and glory.
4. That man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin and is therefore lost, and only those who put their faith in Jesus Christ alone, not trusting in any personal works whatsoever, can be saved.
5. That salvation is the free gift of God brought to the sinner by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Whose substituting death on the cross paid the penalty for man's sin.
6. That the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to convict mankind; indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.
7. In the spiritual unity of believers through our common faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and those individual doctrinal differences that may exist, outside of the aforementioned, should not hinder the unity of Christian home educators.
8. That the only true basis of Christian fellowship is His agape love, which is greater than any differences we possess, and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.
9. That God created man and woman after His own image, and that God has ordained marriage, consisting of one man and one woman, to be the foundation of the family and to be the only legitimate and Godly expression of sexuality.
