Articles of Faith:
- We confess our belief in the Triune God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. “We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen” (The Nicene Creed; Genesis 1-2; Exodus 31:17; Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 44:24, 48:16; John 1:3; 2 Corinthians 3:18, 13:14; Colossians 1:15; Hebrews 1:2).
- We hold to the belief that only through the work of Jesus Christ may anyone obtain salvation. Through faith in Jesus Christ we are forgiven, reconciled to God, and are transformed into the children of God. One cannot earn salvation, it is a gift from God (Isaiah 7:14; John 1:14, 10:30, 14:6; Acts 1:9-11; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 2:9; Hebrews 7:25; 1 Peter 1:18-19; Revelation 19:11-16).
- We share the Christian belief that God’s grace and loving redemption are realized in human life by the activity of the Holy Spirit, both in our personal experience and in experiences found in the community of believers (Romans 8:14-16; 1 Corinthians 2:7-14, 12:13; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Titus 3:5).
- We recognize the authority of the Scriptures in matters of faith. We believe that “all Scripture is inspired by God (God breathed) and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness,” so that God’s people may mature in the faith (Psalm 12:6; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21).
- With other Christians, we believe there is one universal (catholic) church and that oneness is found in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Even though the church has many different denominations with distinct doctrines, we are all part of Christ’s universal church (Ephesians 1:22; Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 5:26-27; Ephesians 4:1-6; Philippians 2:1-2).
As a nondenominational Christian school, NCCA introduces students to the basic concepts of faith found in Christianity. Teaching specific denominational doctrine is avoided; rather when a question arises, a child is referred to his/her church for clarification and explanation.
