Statement of Faith

The Statement of Faith is the theological foundation on which Covenant Classical School (CCS) is based. It reflects the key elements of Christianity that are taught in various ways throughout the school. The substance of these statements is considered primary doctrine in Covenant Classical School. All employees at CCS must give assent to these statements.

  1. We believe the Bible to be the only inerrant, authoritative Word of God.
  2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
  4. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary.
  5. We believe that salvation is by grace through faith alone.
  6. We believe that faith without works is dead.
  7. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  8. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved to the resurrection of life and they that are lost to the resurrection of damnation.
  9. We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

God’s Word forms the basis of the Christian’s life and work, and our Statement of Faith is an interpretation of God’s Word which is consistent with the doctrines of the early Protestant Reformers. Our intention in teaching the Bible is not to indoctrinate students with our Statement of Faith, but to teach them to evaluate its truth claims in the light of Scripture and to discern error when it is present in their own thinking and the thinking of others. We also want our students to understand the central place which Christian doctrine, and the many controversies it inspires, has held in the history of Western culture. We would also like our students to be able to articulate their understanding of the larger human issues which the Scriptures and Christian theology address.

As we teach, we strive to present these doctrines in their appropriate scriptural and historical contexts, and we encourage the kind of discussion and debate which the church has enjoyed for the last two thousand years. Other issues of importance not addressed explicitly in our Statement of Faith are further fuel for discussion and help our students to develop a more disciplined approach to interpreting the Bible. In the end, we encourage our students to seek the counsel of their parents and churches on matters of genuine discrepancy within Christ’s Body.

While all of our faculty submit to the doctrinal statement and must assent to it, we do appreciate the need for precision in every Christian’s personal theology. Therefore, there might still be differences of opinion regarding the application and emphasis of our statement. We believe this is good, since we need always to look to the Scriptures for our confidence and not to our own learning or cleverness (Prov. 3:5-6). However, if at any time, an employee of the school believes he can no longer agree to the Statement of Faith in good conscience he should talk to the Headmaster promptly.

Marriage and Family

Covenant Classical School’s mission is to train our students to live and think according to a biblical, Christ- centered worldview. We accomplish this by partnering with our parents to provide a rigorous, classical education that instills a lifelong love of learning. We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children. Our school unites with the family to form a collaborative culture in which our studies, relationships, and activities all revolve around the Lord Jesus Christ. The best education is anchored in an environment that recognizes all truth as God’s truth. Education is never neutral. The curriculum we choose, and the instructional methods we utilize reflect our values and assumptions about truth and knowledge. At Covenant Classical School, the starting and ending point for all studies is the Word of God. Christ is the One in whom all the “treasures of wisdom and knowledge” are hidden. Therefore, we strive to be Christ- centered in everything we do. For these reasons, it is important that Covenant Classical School and its families be unified in certain fundamental elements of Christian faith and practice, including a biblical view of marriage. Based on Holy Scripture and the constant moral teaching of the universal Christian Church, Covenant Classical School affirms the following:


The Bible teaches that God created and ordered marriage as the permanent, exclusive, comprehensive, and conjugal “one flesh” union of one man and one woman, intrinsically ordered to procreation and biological family, and in furtherance of moral, spiritual, and public good of binding father, mother, and child. (Genesis 1:27-28; Genesis 2:18-24; Matthew 19:4-9; Mark 10:5-9; Ephesians 5:31-33)

Sexual Immorality

The Bible teaches that sexual acts outside marriage are prohibited as sinful. Consequently, Christians must resist and refrain from any and all sexual acts outside marriage. (Exodus 20:14; Leviticus 1:7-23; Leviticus 20:10-21; Deuteronomy 5:18; Matthew 15:19; Matthew 5:27-28; Romans 1:26-32; I Corinthians 7:1-9; Galatians 5:19; Ephesians 4:17-5:10; Colossians 3:5; I Thessalonians 4:3; Hebrews 13:4)

Sexual Identity

The Bible teaches that God created mankind in His image: male (man) and female (woman), sexually different but with equal personal dignity. Consequently, Christians must affirm their biological sex and refrain from attempts to physically change, alter, or disagree with their biological sex. (Genesis 1:26-28; Romans 1:26-32; I Corinthians 6:9-11)

Sexual Orientation

The Bible teaches that God created and ordered human sexuality to the permanent, exclusive, comprehensive, and conjugal “one flesh” union of man and woman, intrinsically ordered to procreation and biological family, and in furtherance of the moral, spiritual, and public good of binding father, mother, and child. Consequently, Christians must affirm the sexual complementarity of man and woman and resist same-sex sexual attractions and refrain from same-sex sexual acts of conduct, which are inconsistent with Biblical teaching. (Genesis 1:27; Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:4-6; Mark 10:5-9; Romans 1:26-27; I Corinthians 6:9-11; Ephesians 5:25-33)


The Bible teaches two life-enhancing options for human sexual behavior: (1) the conjugal “one flesh” marital union of one man and one woman, and (2) celibacy. Either is a gift from God, given as He wills for His glory and the good of those who receive and rejoice in His gift to them. Celibacy and faithful singleness is to be celebrated and affirmed. (Genesis 1:27-28; 2:18-24; Matthew 19:4-6; Mark 10:5-8; Hebrews 13:4; I Corinthians 7:1-9; Matthew 19:12; I Timothy 5:1-2)

Sexual Redemption

The Bible teaches that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and should seek redemption through confession, repentance, baptism, and faith in Jesus Christ. Consequently, Christians must welcome and treat with respect, compassion, and sensitivity all who confess sexual immoral acts or attractions but are committed to resisting sexual temptation, refraining form sexual immorality, and conforming their behavior more and more to the image of Christ. (Matthew 11:28-30; Romans 3:23-24; Ephesians 2:1-10; I Corinthians 10:13; Hebrews 2:17-18; Hebrews 4:14-16)

Lifestyles of practices inconsistent with these biblical teachings are also inconsistent with the mission and message of Covenant Classical School.
