Introduction and Purpose

The doctrinal statement of Eagle Christian Academy, reaffirmed annually by its Board, faculty, and staff, provides a summary of Biblical doctrine consistent with evangelical Christianity. The statement accordingly reaffirms salient features of traditional Christian creeds, thereby identifying our academy with the Scriptures and historic Christianity. The statement also defines the Biblical perspective, informing our school's education approach. These church doctrines cast light on the study of nature, man, and man's culture.

The Nature of God 

[Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, Isaiah 46:9, Colossians 2:9, I Corinthians 8:6]

WE BELIEVE in one sovereign God, eternally existing in three persons: the everlasting Father, His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, and the Holy Spirit, the giver of life; and we believe that God created the Heavens and the earth out of nothing by His spoken word, and for His glory.

Revelation and Authority of Scriptures

[Hebrews 1:1-2, II Timothy 3:16-17, John 10:30, John 20:31]

WE BELIEVE that God has revealed Himself and His truth in the created order, in the Scriptures, and supremely in Jesus Christ and that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God and inerrant in the original writing so that they are fully trustworthy and of supreme and final authority in all they say.

Jesus Christ's Nature and Ministry

[Luke 1:34-35, Philippians 2:5-11, Romans 8:34, Hebrews 4:14-15, John 1:14]

WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, was true God and true man, existing in one person and without sin; and we believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and in His present life there for us as Lord of all, High Priest, and Advocate.

Creation of Humanity

[Genesis 1:27, 2:25, Mark 10:6]

WE BELIEVE that God directly created Adam and Eve, the historical parents of the entire human race. They were created in His own image, distinct from all other living creatures, and in a state of original righteousness.

Human Sinfulness 

[Genesis 3:6-7, Ephesians 2:1-3, Romans 5:22]

WE BELIEVE that our first parents sinned by rebelling against God’s revealed will and thereby incurred both physical and spiritual death and that, as a result, all human beings are born with a sinful nature that leads them to sin in thought, word, and deed.

Existence of Satan and Evil Powers 

[Ephesians 6:12, I Peter 5:8, Colossians 2:14-15]

WE BELIEVE in the existence of Satan, sin, and evil powers and that all these have been defeated by God in the cross of Christ.

Salvation through Jesus Christ 

[Romans 5:1,8; I Corinthians 15:3-4, I John 4:10]

WE BELIEVE that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, triumphing over all evil and that all who believe by faith upon Him are justified by His shed blood and forgiven of all their sins.

Role of the Holy Spirit in Believers 

[John 3:5-6, John 4:23-24, Romans 8:15-16, I Peter 2:5]

WE BELIEVE that all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God and are enabled to offer spiritual worship acceptable to God.

Purpose and Power of the Holy Spirit 

[John 14:15-26, Ephesians 4:11-12, John 16:4-13]

WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit indwells and gives life to believers, enables them to understand the Scriptures, empowers them for Godly living, and equips them for service and witness.

The Universal Church's Mission 

[Galatians 2:10, I Timothy 5:8, I Corinthians 10:17, I Corinthians 12:4-31]

WE BELIEVE that the one, holy, universal Church is the body of Christ and is composed of the communities of Christ’s people. The task of Christ’s people in this world is to be God’s redeemed community, embodying His love by worshipping God with confession, prayer, and praise, by proclaiming the Gospel of God’s redemptive love through our Lord Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth by word and deed; by caring for all of God’s creation and actively seeking the good of everyone, especially the poor and needy.

The Second Coming of Jesus Christ 

[Titus 2:13, I Thessalonians 4:16-17, Matthew 25:31-32, Revelation 21:1-3]

WE BELIEVE in the blessed hope that Jesus Christ will soon return to this earth, personally, visibly, and unexpectedly, in power and great glory, to gather His elect, to raise the dead, to judge the nations, and to bring His Kingdom to fulfillment.

Final Judgment and Resurrection

[Revelation 20:11-13, Matthew 25:34,41,46, I Thessalonians 4:16, Hebrews 9:27, Romans 2:16]

WE BELIEVE in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting punishment of the lost, and the everlasting security of the saved.

Biblical Definition of Marriage

[1 Corinthians 6:18, 7:2–5; Hebrews 13:4, Genesis 2:18-25]

WE BELIEVE that marriage has only one meaning: uniting one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in scripture. We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other.

Sexual Purity

[1 Corinthians 6:18-20, Hebrews 13:4, 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5]

WE BELIEVE that God’s command is that there be no sexual intimacy outside of or apart from marriage between a man and a woman.

God’s Design of Gender 

[Genesis 1:26–27]

WE BELIEVE that God wonderfully foreordained and immutably created each person as either male or female in conformity with their biological sex. These two distinct yet complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God.

(How do we act?)


We do the right thing when no one is looking.


We value and celebrate others.


We don’t give up.
