Statement of Faith at Great Hearts Christos

The Christos statement of faith reflects the ecumenical purpose of the organization. Our Christian academies hold a foundational commitment to advancing the unity of all Christians, which is at once an intrinsic good and a witness to the Father’s plan to unite all things in Christ. In commitment to Christian unity, we cultivate habits of prayer, worship, and scriptural study that a wide range of Christian believers can support without compromising denominational distinctions.  Great Hearts Christos is designed to support families in raising Christian children, and we recognize that parents hold the ultimate responsibility for faith formation according to the beliefs and traditions of their chosen denomination or church.

Nicene Creed:
We see the statements set forth in the Nicene Creed as the essential articles of the Christian faith.

The Trinity:
There is only one God existing as three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Christ and The Kingdom of God:
Jesus alone is Savior, Lord, and King. His earthly ministry, culminating in the cross, has ushered in the Kingdom of God.

Salvation and Resurrection:
Christ’s cross is the means of atonement and salvation. Furthermore, Christ’s resurrection from the dead ensures the bodily resurrection of all He saves.

Inerrancy of Scripture:
The Bible is the infallible, inspired Word of God; its authority is ultimate, final, and eternal.

Sanctity of Human Life:
Humans are fearfully and wonderfully created by God in His image. The incarnation of Christ demonstrated God’s love for humanity and elevated human dignity.

Traditional Christian Morality:
Scripture provides the guidelines and standard for marriage, family, and all matters concerning relationships between the two sexes: man and woman.

Christian Unity:
It is the desire of Christ that His church be unified and thereby show the world God’s love.
