This Statement of Faith outlines the core biblical beliefs of First Wesleyan Christian School.
We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God.
We believe there is one God, infinitely perfect and eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the complete deity and perfect humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His substitutionary atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His ministry of intercession for His people, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe man was originally created in the image of and after the likeness of God and that he fell through sin and is therefore spiritually dead in trespasses and sin.
We believe in salvation by the sacrifice of Christ received by grace through faith alone.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit in this world, which includes the convicting of the lost of sin, the regenerating and indwelling of all who believe, and the empowering of believers for service and Godly living.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead; the saved to the resurrection of eternal life and the lost to the resurrection of eternal punishment.
We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers under the headship of Jesus Christ.
I feel so blessed to be part of the staff at FWCS. It feels like one big family with everyone on the staff working together to see that each student is successful—not only in academics but also in Christian values. I love the fact that we can talk about God and Jesus and get the students thinking about life skills and values that would glorify our Lord. After teaching in public schools for 20 years, I love being able to teach in such a loving environment.
