Our Biblical Beliefs

Williamsburg Christian Academy was founded and functions upon the basic fundamental principles of the Word of God, and it espouses the historic Christian view of life as presented in the Bible.  The following statements of Biblical beliefs and practice are necessary and essential to every Williamsburg Christian Academy employee and school family.  We believe: 

  • The belief that the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God, a complete revelation of God’s love and will for the salvation of men, and the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and life.  (II Tim. 3:15-17; II  Pet. 1:20-21; I Thess.2:13)
  • The belief in one sovereign God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  We believe God is perfect in holiness, infinite wisdom, unbounded in power, and measureless in love.  (Matt. 28:19; I Pet. 1:2; II Cor. 13:14)
  • The belief that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He was eternally pre-existent as God, and that He took on Himself the nature of man through the virgin birth as to be true God and true man.  We believe in His sinless life, His death on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins, His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven, His high-priestly intercession, and His coming personal return in power and glory.  (Luke 1:26-35; John 1:14-18; Is. 7:14; Phil. 2:5-11; Heb. 2:17, 4:15; I John 4:10; Rom. 3:24-25; I Cor. 15:1-4, 20; Acts 1:9-11; Heb. 7:25; II Thess. 1:7)
  • The belief that the Holy Spirit is eternal with the Father and the Son.  We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, to convict men of sin, righteousness, and judgment, to regenerate the believing sinner, and to indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for Godly living and service.  (Heb. 9:14; John 16:13-14, 16:7-8, 3:5-8, 6:63; Titus 3:5; I Cor. 6:19; Rom. 8:14, 8:2)
  • The belief that God created man in His image for the purpose of fellowship with Him, but that mankind through disobedience became subject to spiritual and physical death.  We believe that all human beings, with the exception of Jesus Christ, are sinners by nature and practice, and except for the redemption provided through Jesus Christ, are eternally lost.  (Gen. 1:27; Rom. 5:12-19, 6:23)
  • The belief that God the Father is the source of eternal salvation, having loved the world and given His only Son, Jesus Christ, for its redemption.  We believe that there is no other name under heaven by which fallen man can be saved, but the name of Jesus.  (Heb. 5:9; John 3:16-17; Acts 4:12)
  • The belief that Jesus Christ died for our sins as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice and that all who personally believe in Him are justified, not by any works of righteousness, which they have done, but by His perfect righteousness and redeeming blood.  We believe that all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again and thus become children of God.  (Rom. 3:23-28, 5:8-11; Eph. 2:8-9; Titus 3:4-5; John 3:3, 1:12-13)
  • The belief that there will be a bodily resurrection of all the dead, of believers to a judgment of rewards and everlasting joy and fellowship with the Lord, and of unbelievers to a judgment of everlasting punishment and separation from the presence of God.  (Matt. 6:20; John 5:28-29; Acts 24:15; Rom. 14:10-12; I Cor. 3:9-15, 15:21-24; II Cor. 5:10; Rev. 20:11-13)
  • The belief that all who have been saved through faith in Jesus Christ are joined together in one great fellowship of believers, the church universal which is His body, of which He Himself is the Head.  (Eph. 1:22-23; 4:11-16; Titus 3:5)
