Statement of Faith

indicates a required answer

Jesus Christ is the headmaster of Outreach Christian School. The teaching faculty and staff are only servants to be used by the Lord
in educating and training each child. This is the condensed statement of faith for our school. A more comprehensive statement may be
obtained from the front office.

(A) Holy Scripture—We believe that all scripture of both the Old and New Testaments is the inspired Word of God. It is without
error and the sole authority for life, faith and conduct.

(B) The Godhead—We believe there is one true and living God who eternally exists in three persons: God the Father, God the
Son and God the Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14; John 14:10, 26).

(C) Jesus Christ—We Believe Jesus Christ is the only begotten and eternal Son of God. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless
life, died on the cross as our substitute, was buried, rose from the grave in a bodily resurrection and, with His promise to
return, ascended into heaven to be seated at the right hand of God (Isaiah 7:14; 9:6; Luke 1:35; John 1:1-2, 14; II Corinthians
5:19-21; Galatians 4:4-5; Philippians 2:5-8; Acts 2:18-36; Romans 3:24-25; I Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; I Peter 1:3-5).

(D) Holy Spirit—We believe the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and, that He is the
Supernatural Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of
full redemption (John 16:8-11; Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 12:12-14; II Corinthians 3:6; Ephesians 1:13-14).

(E) Man and the Fall—We believe man is the special and eternal creation which God made in His own image and likeness.
However, when the first man, Adam, voluntarily sinned, he incurred the just and forewarned penalty of spiritual and physical
death for both himself and all future humanity. Therefore, his sin, which separated him from God, also became our sin; so all
have been alienated from God and are in need of reconciliation (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:22-23; 5:12; 6:23; Ephesians
2:1-3; 4:17-19).
We also believe that, apart from God, man is totally depraved, utterly unable to remedy his lost condition, and will spend
eternity separated from Him in eternal torment.

(F) Salvation—We believe salvation is the gift of God, offered to man by grace and received when we, through repentance, place
our hope and trust fully in Jesus Christ who gave His life’s blood as a ransom for the forgiveness of our sins (John 1:12;
Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-10; I Peter 1:18-19).

(G) The Church—We believe that all who put their faith in Jesus Christ are immediately placed by the Holy Spirit into a singular
united spiritual body recognized as the church. The local assembling of believers, with Jesus Christ as the head, is the visible,
physical expression of this spiritual body (I Corinthians 12:12-14; II Corinthians 11:2; Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:25-27).

(H) Lifestyle—We believe it is the will of God to live a life devoted to scripture and defined by like action (Romans 12:1-2; 14:13; II Corinthians 6:14; 7:1; II Timothy 3:1-5; I John 2:15-17; II John 9-11).

(I) Last and Eternal State—We believe Jesus Christ will literally come for His church, physically establish His millennial reign on
earth, decree a final judgment between the righteous and wicked and rule forever in the new heavens and new earth (Matthew
25:41-46; Mark 9:43-48; Luke 16:19-26; II Thessalonians 1:7-9; Jude 6-7; Revelation 20:11-15).

*This statement of faith is intended to reflect our beliefs but is not to be considered all-inclusive.

The subjects below represent our steadfast scriptural position and our biblical understanding of those Scriptures. Cultural diversities
and pressures in this modern era convince some to embrace non-biblical change. While we regard and respect the right for everyone
to make their own choices, we affirm we also have that same privilege.
The following reflect a portion of what we believe at OCE and what we expect families to support as we partner together to educate
your children in these difficult days. A more comprehensive Position on Cultural Concerns and Differences may be obtained from the
front office.

Marriage, Gender, and Human Sexuality

See Genesis 2:24; Genesis 19:5, 13; Genesis 26:8-9; Leviticus 18:1-30; Romans 1:26-29; I Corinthians 5:1; 6:9; I Thess. 4:1-8; Hebrews 13:4.

Marriage - Designed by God to be between one man and one woman
Gender - Assigned by God and made evident by genitalia (confirmed by DNA)
Sexuality - Intended to be expressed between a male and female within the confines of marriage. We believe homosexuality,
lesbianism, bisexuality, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery, pornography, gender fluidity, transgenderism, and any
other sexually fluid lifestyles are sinful perversions of God's gift of sex.

Creation vs. Evolution

See Genesis 1-2; Exodus 20:11

We believe that God created the universe in six literal 24-hour periods. We reject evolution, the Gap Theory, the Day-Age Theory, the
Big Bang Theory, and Theistic Evolution as unscriptural theories of origin.

Life, Abortion, and Euthanasia

See Job 3:16; Psalms 51:5; 139:14-16; Isaiah 44:24; 49:1; 5; Jeremiah 1:5; 20:15-18; Luke 1:44.

Life - All human life is precious from the unborn to the aged.

Abortion - We understand the difficult decisions surrounding abortion. Especially if the mother is really in danger of losing her
life. And while there is no “one size fits all,” we categorically support life and view abortion as infanticide.

Euthanasia - We believe intentionally the taking the life of the elderly for whatever reason is murder.
