Statement of Faith

  1. BHCA believes that the Bible is God's indisputable message to man, that it is inspired by God himself and, therefore, is without error. II Peter 1:20-21, II Tim. 3:15-17
  2. BHCA believes there is one God who continuously and endlessly evidences Himself in three persons: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus), and God the Holy Spirit. Gen. 1:1, Matt. 28:19, John 10:30
  3. BHCA believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and He is one with the Father. John 1:1, Isaiah 43:10-13, John 17:20-21, John 10:30, Luke 3:21-22
  4. BHCA believes that Jesus was born of a virgin, that He lived a sinless life, and that He accomplished amazing miracles, as recorded in Scripture. Isaiah 7:14, Matt. 1:18-23, Heb. 4:15, I Peter 1:18-19
  5. BHCA believes that Jesus shed His blood and died on the cross as our substitute and, in so doing, settled the score once and for all for our sin. Isaiah 53:4-6, Romans 6:23, Gal. 1:4, Romans 5:8, Romans 3:22-24
  6. BHCA believes in the miraculous resurrection of Jesus and that He ascended to the right hand of God the Father where He constantly intercedes on our behalf and that one day He will return to earth in power and glory. Heb. 7:26, John 5:28-29, John 11:25, Mark 16:19, Romans 8:26-34, I Thess. 4:16, Heb. 4:15
  7. BHCA believes that through a personal heart-felt acceptance of Jesus Christ as personal Savior, we are reborn as a new creation by the inner working of the Holy Spirit. John 5:24, Eph. 2:4-9, Titus 3:5-7, Romans 5:8-9, Romans 10:9-10, Eph. 1:13-14, John 14:6

  10. BHCA believes in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and pledge to look beyond doctrinal confict in order that the kingdom of God be extended.
  11. BHCA believes that all human life is sacred and created by God in HIs image and His likeness. Human life is of inestibable worth in all its demensions, including pre-bord babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. Gen. 1:27-28, Jer., 1:4-5, Psa. 139:13-16
  12. BHCA believes that God wonderfully and imutably creates each person as male or female, therefore; alternative gender identities are contrary to the Bible. Male and female are distinct, complementary genders that together reflect the image and nature of God. Gen. 1:26-27, Gen. 2:15-24, Lev. 20:13a, Matt. 19:4
  13. BHCA believes that God created marriage to be exclusively the union of one man and one woman, and that intimate sexual activity is to occur exclusively within that union. Gen. 2:22-24, I Corin. 7:2-5, Matt. 19:4-6, Roman. 1:26-27

I understand that Black HIlls Christian Academy will address spiritual matters using this statement as a basis and guide. 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 purposes of Black Hills Christian Academy's faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, our Board of Directors in Black Hill Christian Academy's final interpretive authority on the Bible's meaning and application.
