WHAT WE BELIEVE

We live in an age where the label “Christian” can refer to anything from a fanatical cult to a pacifistic agnostic. It is therefore appropriate that we clearly delineate what Renaissance Classical Christian Academy believes in and what we will unapologetically incorporate into our teaching. All board members and staff of RCCA must affirm their belief in these articles of faith. The items listed below come directly from the creeds that the church has affirmed from its inception. Any other secondary or divisive doctrinal issue will not be taught as a primary doctrine. However, if a secondary issue arises during the conduct of a class, it may be discussed, but will be referred back to the family and their local church for final authority.

  • We believe that the Bible is the only inerrant, authoritative Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16).
  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent (Deuteronomy 6:4, Genesis 1:1, 1 John 5:7).
  • We believe in God the Father, Maker of all things visible and invisible.
  • We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, who with the Father made all things. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and died an atoning death through His shed blood. After three days, He arose from the grave and ascended to the right hand of the Father. We look forward to His physical return in power and glory (John 10:30, Matthew 1:18, Hebrews 4:15, John 10:32, Romans 3:25, Matthew 28:6, Romans 8:34, Luke 21:27).
  • We believe that man is lost and unable to save himself. Salvation comes only through rebirth and the regeneration by the Holy Spirit (John 3:3-8).
  • We believe that salvation is by grace through faith alone (Ephesians 2:8).
  • We believe that faith without works is dead (James 2:17).
  • We believe in the present-day ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is empowered to live a godly life (Galatians 5:16).
  • 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 condemnation (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; 2 Thessalonians 1:9).
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (John 17:20-23).
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (John 17:20-23).
