Statement of Faith
These tenets of the Church define the Biblical perspective which informs a Northwood Academy education:
We believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, who loved us and gave His eternal Son that we might have everlasting life.
We believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, was crucified for our sins, buried and was resurrected from the dead. We believe He ascended into heaven and sits on the right hand of God and that He will judge each of us at the final Judgment.
We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible Word of God and sole and final source of all that we believe. We believe the Bible speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind.
We believe man's only hope of redemption is through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God's Son.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, that He indwells every believer. That He gives gifts to believers and enables us to live a victorious life.
We believe there is one church comprised of all born again believers. That the church is the body of Christ, equipped to do the work of Christ on earth.
We believe in the resurrection of the dead, in a literal heaven and hell. We believe that man is an eternal being who will exist forever. Where we spend eternity is determined by our living faith in Christ.
This statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. For purposes of Northwood Academy's faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, our School Board of Directors is the schools' final interpretive authority on the Bible's meaning and application.
