Statement of Faith

Mariners Christian School is a Christian School serving Christian families with an evident desire to partner with their church, their school, and their home to raise up the next generation for Christ. As such, we require that at least one parent in each family believes in Jesus Christ as their Savior, agrees with our Statement of Faith, and is actively involved in their local church.

We Believe...

  • In one God, eternally existing in three co-equal persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Deuter- onomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14


  • That God the Son became human in the person of Jesus Christ, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is fully God and fully man. Matthew 1:18-25; John 1:14; Colossians 1:15, 19


  • That Jesus Christ lived a sinless life and offered himself as the only perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people. All who believe in Him are declared righteous on the basis of His death. Romans 3:24- 26; 5:6-10; II Corinthians 5:14-15, 21; I Peter 3:18


  • Jesus Christ rose physically from the dead and ascended into heaven to demonstrate His power over sin and John 20:25-27; Acts 1:9-11; Romans 1:4


  • That Jesus Christ will return again to earth to establish His kingdom and reign forever in right- eousness and Isaiah 9:6-7; Matthew 24:30; Acts 1:11; Revelation 21:1-8


  • That the Bible, consisting of all sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, is the written Word of God, our final authority on all matters to which it speaks, without error in the original manu- scripts. Psalm 19:7-11; II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21


  • That human beings were created in the image of God to be like Him in character and to be in relationship with Him. Human beings are born with a sinful nature and, apart from Jesus Christ, are eternally separated from God. As a result, each one has sinned by defying God and has fallen short of God’s perfect Genesis 1:26-27; 2:15-17; 3:6; Romans 5:12-19; Ephesians 2:1-3


  • That salvation from our sinful condition is a free gift of God. It is not something we earn or deserve because of good It must be received personally by repentance and faith in Jesus Christ alone. John 1:12; 3:16; 10:27-30; Romans 3:28; 8:31-38; Ephesians 2:8-9


  • That the Holy Spirit lives in every believer from the moment of salvation. He provides all Chris- tians with power for living and is in the on-going process of transforming believers into the likeness of Je- sus John 14:16-17; Romans 6:1-14; 8:9-17; Galatians 5:16-26; Ephesians 2:10; Philippians 1:6


  • That human beings were created to exist forever. They will either exist eternally separated from God in hell or eternally united with Him in heaven. John 5:28-29; I Corinthians 15:50-58; I Thessaloni- ans 4:15-18; Revelation 20:12-15


  • In the reality and personality of Satan, who attempts to defeat Christians through decep- tion. Believers overcome Satan’s schemes by applying biblical truth in the power of the Holy Job 1:6-12; John 8:44; Ephesians 6:10-18; I Peter 5:8-9


  • The Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the head of the Church. Believers need to maintain a regular commitment to attend a local church fellowship. Believers  are to grow in spiritual  maturity, love each other as Christ loved us and proclaim the Good News of Je-   sus Christ through words and compassionate actions. Matthew 16:16-18; 22:37-38; 28:19-20; John 13:34- 35; Acts 1:8; II Corinthians 5:18-20; Ephesians 4:11-16; Colossians 1:18; Hebrews 10:25
