We believe in the verbal inspiration of the Bible. The verbal inspiration of the Bible is the foundation upon which all other doctrines stand. It is without error and is God’s total and complete revelation to man. The Bible is the final authority of all matters concerning the truths of God (II Timothy 3:15-17 “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works”; II Peter 1:20-21; Romans 15:4; Matthew 4:4; Matthew 24:35). Victory Baptist School uses the King James Bible.
We believe in one God, existing in three persons, known as the Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost”; Genesis 1:1, 26-27; John 10:30, 37-38).
We believe in the Biblical story of creation as revealed in Genesis chapters one and two. We believe that creation was complete in six literal days and that Adam and Eve were historical figures representing the beginning of mankind. We reject evolution and any theory that contradicts the Word of God (Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth”; Genesis 1:26-27).
We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus which has been revealed to us in prophecy (Isaiah 7:14 “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel”) and shown to us in fulfillment in Matthew 1:23 and Luke 1:26-38.
We believe in the vicarious sufferings and substitutionary death of Jesus. We believe that Jesus Christ bore the sins of the whole world – past, present, and future (Isaiah 53:6 “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all”; I Peter 2:22-24; I Corinthians 15:3; II Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9).
We believe that salvation is by grace and can be received only by believing in Jesus Christ and His finished work that was done on the cross (Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast”; John 14:6; John 3:16; John 5:24; Acts 16:30-31; Romans 10:9-13).
We believe in the continuing ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Galatians 5:16 “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh”; I Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:30, 5:18).
We believe in the victorious and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe the resurrection distinguishes Christianity from all religions of the world (John 11:25 “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live”; I Corinthians 15:4-19).
We believe in the visible and personal return of Christ (Hebrews 9:28 “So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation”; Acts 1:10-11; Revelation 19:11-16, 22:20) and in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost – those who are saved unto eternal life and those who are lost unto eternal damnation (John 5:28-29; I Corinthians 15:42-58; Revelation 20:11-15).
We believe in God’s design for marriage, between a man and a woman only, as revealed in Genesis 2:23-24 “And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” We believe that any sexual activity outside of a Biblical marriage is a sin (Romans 1:26-29; I Corinthians 5:1, 6:9; I Thessalonians 4:1-8; Hebrews 13:4).
We believe that parents have the primary responsibility of educating their children – spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally, and socially (Deuteronomy 6). We will partner with parents to provide a Christian education for their child. No compromise will be made concerning any issues pertaining to the doctrinal truths taught in the Word of God.
This Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our faith. The Bible itself is the sole and final source of all that we believe.
