Statement Of Beliefs


UCHE Academy is a 501(c)3 religious nonprofit organization. Our values and beliefs are based upon the Christian Holy Bible.

 

WE BELIEVE the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.

WE BELIEVE there is one God eternally manifested in the persons of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

WE BELIEVE in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, in His vicarious and atoning sacrifice through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension and in His personal return in power and glory upon the earth.

WE BELIEVE regeneration and conversion through faith in Jesus Christ are absolutely essential for the salvation of lost and sinful humanity and that water baptism by immersion is the biblical testimony of that conversion.

WE BELIEVE the Holy Spirit was sent by the Father to implement the grace of salvation in the life of an unbeliever and to permanently indwell each believer empowering them with wisdom, strength and gifts to lead a life of Christlike character and bear fruit to the glory of the Father.

WE BELIEVE in world evangelism: accepting the commission of Jesus Christ, who is Lord, to make disciples of all nations, to baptize them and teach them to observe His commandments.

WE BELIEVE in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the just unto eternal life and the unjust into eternal damnation.

WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that as Christians we are to meet together regularly for worship, ordinances and the encouragement of one another.

WE BELIEVE that God is a covenant making and keeping God. He has made promises to those who respond to His love by committing their lives to Him. We believe all those who are in covenant with God should live in covenant loyalty to one another.

WE BELIEVE that children are a heritage from the Lord, a reward from him (Psalm 127:5), and that parents have been given the mantle of authority in the child’s life, including the primary role of teaching and training their children as described in Deuteronomy 6, Malachi 4, Luke 1, Titus 1 and 2, and throughout scripture.

WE BELIEVE in the sanctity of life and the intrinsic value of individuals as children created in the image of God.

WE BELIEVE that active membership in a local Christian church is a vital component of family spiritual health, providing opportunity for personal growth, discipleship, outreach, and personal accountability. UCHE teachers and members are required to maintain active connection to a local Christian church body, which provides for spiritual growth as well as accountability (Hebrews 10: 19-39, 1 Peter 2:9-17, Hebrews 13:7, Hebrews 13:17).

WE BELIEVE leaders should maintain a lifestyle that reflects the calling of Christian leadership and to refrain from behavior that would compromise the credibility of any Christian ministry (2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1, Hebrews 13:4-5). Because of their potential for exponential influence, teachers are held to the highest of behavioral standards (James 3:1, Matthew 23:1-33, Luke 20: 46-47).

WE BELIEVE a Christian community should demonstrate respect, excellence, and professionalism in action as well as in presentation. In similar fashion to other Christian organizations in this region, we believe this concept to be in keeping with the projection of an image suitable to a Christian ministry (1 Timothy 1:9).
