The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Proverbs 9:10

I. Statement of Purpose

The purpose of this organization is to support the efforts of Christian home educators by providing opportunities for

fellowship, encouragement, education, and the exchange of ideas and information from a Biblical perspective.

II. Statement of Faith

The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God and constitutes His completed and final revelation to man.

The Bible in its original autograph, is without error in whole and in part, including theological concepts as well as

geographical and historical details. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)

God has existed from all eternity in three persons God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ

was God come in human flesh being fully God and fully man, except without sin. (Genesis 1:1; John 1:1,2; John 10:30,

All men are in violation of God's righteous requirements and His holy character both by nature and act, and are therefore

under His wrath and just condemnation. (Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:2)

The central purpose of the coming of Jesus Christ was to pay the penalty for man's sin through His substitutionary death

on the cross, the successful accomplishment of which was attested to by His subsequent visible, bodily resurrection.

(Hebrews 7:26, 27; 2 Peter 3:18; 1 Corinthians 15:3-7)

Salvation is offered as a gift, free to the sinner. This gift must be responded to in individual faith, not trusting in any

personal work whatsoever, but in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ alone. (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8, 9)

Marriage is the union between one man and one woman. (Genesis 2:18, 21-24; Ephesians 5:23-32; 1 Peter 3:1-7; 1
