Our Beliefs


New Hope Christian School is a private Christian school.  Therefore, our beliefs are grounded in the Christian faith and are evident in all aspects of our school and curriculum.  We are a ministry of New Hope Community Church.  If you would like to read a more indepth discussion of our beliefs, you will find it here.  But here are our basic beliefs...

1. The inerrancy of Scripture.

We believe the Scriptures, (the Holy Bible) are the inerrant and infallible Word of God, and therefore the revelation of His will for mankind.  So Scripture is paramount in all we will teach your child(ren).

2. Salvation is by grace alone.

We believe we are saved by grace alone. This means that even though we are undeserving of salvation, God in His infinite love and mercy has seen fit to bless us His grace and redeem us, to forgive our sins and to reconcile us into an eternal relationship with Him. We believe this incredible salvation is a free gift from God and does not depend in any way on our own merit.

3. Salvation is through faith alone.

We believe we receive this gift throught faith alone. It is not faith, plus our own good works, it is not faith plus anything, but faith alone that leads us to an understanding of God's plan for our lives and His salvation of our souls.

4. Salvation is in Christ alone.

We believe that Jesus alone provides the way to salvation. Jesus said, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me." It was Jesus' sacrifice on the cross that atoned for the sins of all those who put their trust in Him and reconciled them with a perfect and holy God.  

5. The Sovereignty of God.

We believe all glory belongs to God.  The Reformed faith places the strongest emphasis on God's Providence and His work in the history of His Creation.  We believe that only God is sovereign and therefore only God is deserving of glory. 

6. The Love of God.

If we live for a thousand eons, we will never begin to plumb the depths of God's love for us.  Such love is indescribable and unfathomable.  The kind of love that would love the un-loveable and redeem those who do not deserve to be redeemed.

7. The Holiness of God

As stated above, we believe God is love.  We also believe that God is holy.  This means He is separate and far above His Creation.  His thoughts are not our thoughts, nor His ways our ways.  He is omipotent, omniscient, eternal and infinite.  His holiness means He is infinite in His perfection and righteousness. Even though God is infinite in His love, He is also infinite in His holiness.  And because He is infinite in His justness-- He must punish sin.
