Statement of Faith
Agapé Boarding School is a ministry of Agapé Baptist Church. The Pastor and Board are the final authority on all matters.
1. The Bible
We believe that the Bible as given in the King James translation is the eternal, infallible, inerrant, verbally inspired Word of God. We believe that it is essential to proper living on the Earth and that it is the guide to salvation and, ultimately, to Heaven.
2. The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ
A. His Virgin Birth (Matt. 1:23; Luke 1:32,35)
B. His Sinless Life (Heb. 7:26; I Peter 2:22)
C. His Miracles (Acts 2:22; 10:38)
D. His Substitutionary Work on the Cross (I Cor. 15:3; II Cor. 5:21)
E. His Bodily Resurrection from the Dead (Matt. 28:6; Luke 24:39; I Cor. 15:4)
3. The Fall of Man
Man was created good and upright. For God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” Man, by voluntary transgression, fell and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is separation from God. (Gen. 1:26,27, 2:17, 3:6; Rom. 5:12-19)
4. The Salvation of Man
Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
A. The Conditions of Salvation: It is received by repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus. By the washing of regeneration and through the renewing of the Holy Ghost being completely justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God according to the hope of eternal life. (Luke 24:47; John 3:3; Rom. 10:13-15; Eph. 2:8; Titus 2:11, 3:5-7)
B. The Evidence of Salvation: The inward evidence of salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit (Rom. 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness. (Eph. 4:24; Titus 2:12)
