A. We believe in the verbal, plenary 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.
B. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three co-equal Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
C. 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.
D. We believe that God the Holy Spirit is a personal Being who convicts the world of sin and who regenerates, indwells, empowers, guides, and bestows spiritual gifts on believers, and who seals them eternally for God.
E. We believe that man was created by a direct act of God in His image, not from previously existing life, that all men sinned in Adam (the historical father of the entire human race) and thus incurred both physical and spiritual death, and that all men have inherited a sinful nature.
F. We believe that Jesus Christ died as substitutionary sacrifice for our sins and that through faith in Him as Lord and Savior, we are declared righteous by God and are eternally secure in Christ.
G. 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.
H. We believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead – physically and bodily – and that He ascended in like form into heaven, where He continually ministers as our Great High Priest and Advocate.
I. We believe that this age will be consummated by the literal, visible, bodily return of Jesus Christ to this earth.
J. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
K. We believe that all believers are under the mandate of Jesus Christ to proclaim the Gospel to all the world.
Our Doctrinal Statement does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs and teachings. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God, speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality and the proper conduct of mankind and is the sole and final source of all that we believe and teach. For purposes of faith, doctrine, practice, policy and discipline, the TCA Board of Trustees designates the Headmaster as TCA’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.
Statement of Sanctity of Human Life
We believe and teach human life begins at conception. All human life is sacred, created by God in His image and should be protected.
Statement of Marriage & Gender
We believe and teach that the term marriage is limited to an exclusive covenant relationship between a man and a woman, as set forth in the Bible (Gen. 2:18-25). We believe and teach that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other (1 Corinthians 6:18, 7:2-5).
We believe and teach God created each person in His image as male or female and assigned each their sex at birth. Any rejection of or attempt to change, alter or disagree with one’s biological sex or gender, whether physically or otherwise, is a rejection of God’s creation (Gen. 1:27). We believe and teach the pronouns used to identify an individual is based upon his/her biological sex assigned at birth by God.
