"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer
Statement of Faith
Midland Classical Academy is guided by the following beliefs. It is our conviction that sound doctrine is vital to the health and impact of Midland Classical Academy, but that sound doctrine alone is powerless without the unifying work of love which unites our hearts through the power of the Holy Spirit. We will teach consistently with this statement; however, it is not our conviction that everyone who attends Midland Classical Academy must agree with every detail of doctrine. No person teaching at Midland Classical Academy shall knowingly or willfully persuade students contrary to this statement. Moreover, there is no doctrine and no concern biblically that the School Board does not wholeheartedly invite any family or tutor to discuss with them in the spirit of love.
We believe that the Holy Bible is God’s inerrant and infallible revelation in the original autographs.
We believe that God eternally exists in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; and that these three are one God.
We believe that Jesus Christ was fully God and fully man. Further, we believe that Jesus Christ was crucified, died, and was raised from the dead.
We believe that, owing to universal death through sin, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he or she is born again; and that no degree of reformation however great, no attainments in morality however high, no culture however attractive, no baptism or other ordinance however administered, can help the sinner to take even one step toward heaven; but a new nature imparted from above, a new life implanted by the Holy Spirit through the Word, is absolutely essential to salvation, and only those thus saved are sons of God. We believe also that our redemption has been accomplished solely by the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, who was made to be sin and was made a curse for us, dying in our place and stead; and that no repentance, no feeling, no faith, no good resolutions, no sincere efforts, no submission to the rules and regulations of any church, nor all the churches that have existed since the days of the Apostles, can add in the very least degree to the value of the blood or to the merit of the finished work wrought for us by Him who united in His person true and proper deity with perfect and sinless humanity. (Lev. 17:11; Isa. 64:6; Matt. 26:28; John 3:7-18; Rom. 5:6-9; 2 Cor. 5:21; Gal. 3:13; 6:15; Eph. 1:7; Phil. 3:4-9; Titus 3:5; James 1:18; 1 Pet. 1:18-19, 23)
We believe that man, though originally created in the image of God, fell through sin and became spiritually dead to God; and that this condition is the heritage of every member of the human race.
We believe that salvation places an individual in a position of perfect spiritual blessing and completeness in Christ, though the experience of this is only realized as one grows in Christ.
We believe that every child of God is eternally secure in Christ in that once he is saved, he shall be kept saved forever by the Living God. This in no way means that God overlooks the sin of His children but chastens and corrects them in infinite love.
We believe that it is the privilege of all believers to be assured of their salvation from the very day they take Him to be their Savior. This assurance is based wholly upon the testimony of God’s Word.
We believe in the Holy Spirit and His permanent indwelling of every believer. Moreover, we believe He is the source of all spiritual power and all acceptable worship and service.
We believe that, by the same Spirit, all believers in this age are baptized into, and thus become, one body that is Christ’s. As members of one another, we are under solemn duty to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace, loving one another with a pure heart fervently.
We believe that all Christians are divinely related to this world as strangers and pilgrims, ambassadors and witnesses, and that their primary purpose should be to make Christ known to the world with the aim of bringing others to Him and to grow in Him.
We believe that at death those who have trusted in Christ for salvation pass immediately into His presence. Unbelievers, after death, are kept in a state of conscious condemnation and misery until their final judgment. This final judgment is the everlasting conscious eternal torment in the lake of fire apart from the presence of the Lord.
We believe in the personality of Satan (and his demons) who, though judged at the Cross, remains as the "god of this world" until the second coming of Christ.
We believe in the divine giftedness of each Christian for the building up of the body, bestowed by the Spirit, and that wholly apart from the benefits of salvation, rewards are promised according to the faithfulness of each believer in his service for his Lord.
We believe that the next great events in the fulfillment of prophecy will be the Rapture of the Church and the Tribulation climaxed by the Return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth to establish His millennial kingdom.
We believe in the necessity of interpreting the Bible according to its literal or normal sense.
We believe that God is apart from creation and time, that He created and established the heavens and the earth from nothing as described in the Bible, specifically Genesis 1-11; and that He created all things – the physical, the spiritual, principalities and powers, and time itself. He has preordained and is sovereign over all things.
