What We Believe

What We Believe

At Waterloo Christian School, our beliefs are rooted in the truth of the Bible, which guides our teaching, learning, and daily living. Our Statement of Faith unites our diverse community of believers in a shared commitment to core principles. 

What We Believe

Our commitment to these beliefs shapes every aspect of our school community, from the classroom to the playground, ensuring that our students are not only academically prepared but also spiritually equipped to live a life of faith, influence, and purpose.

All employees and families of Waterloo Christian School affirm their commitment and agreement with the Statement of Faith on an annual basis.

We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and the New Testaments as verbally inspired by God and inerrant in the original writing, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life. (2 Timothy 3:16)

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19, Exodus 20:2-3, Genesis 1:26)

We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man. (Isaiah 7:14, Luke 1:35)

We believe that human beings were created in the image of God; that they sinned, and thereby incurred, not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with sinful nature. (Genesis 1:27, Romans 3:23, Romans 1:32, Romans 5:12)

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. (John 3:16, Romans 3:24)

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and in His present life there for us, as High Priest and Advocate. (Matthew 28:6-7, I Corinthians 15:4, Luke 24:51, Hebrews 8:6, Hebrews 5:9-10)

We believe in “that blessed hope”; the imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. (I Thessalonians 4:16)

We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby become children of God. (I Peter 1:23, John 1:12)

We believe that there is a Biblical mandate placed upon parents and the church to educate children in the ways of the Lord. The purpose of a Christian school is to partner with parents and the church in this training process. (Proverbs 22:6, Deuteronomy 4:10, Psalm 78:4)

The Waterloo Christian School Statement of Faith is based in Biblical truth. The Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe.
