Hillcrest Christian School Statement of Faith

  • We believe the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments of Holy Scripture (the Bible) to be inspired by the Holy Spirit, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God. All Scripture is a testimony to Christ, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 4:12; 1 Peter 1:23-25; 2 Peter 1:21; Acts 4:18-19; Romans 13:1-5).

 

  • We believe there is one and only one true and living God existing in three Persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – each a distinct Person, but all of one essence and all having the same nature, perfections, and attributes, and each is worthy of precisely the same worship, confidence, and obedience (Genesis 1:26; Jeremiah 10:10; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19).

  • We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ Who is the Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, His sinless life, His miracles, His shed blood on Calvary as a vicarious substitute and atoning death, He was buried, He rose again bodily and ascended to God the Father according to the Scriptures and in His personal and visible return in power and glory. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25; John 2:11; Isaiah 53:4-6; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Mark 16:19; Hebrews 4:15, 7:25; Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11).

(Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25; John 2:11; Isaiah 53:4-6; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Mark 16:19; Hebrews 4:15, 7:25; Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11).

 

  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity, very God coexistent with the Father and the Son. The Holy Spirit is the chief agent in regeneration for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature, the chief convictor of sin, and the chief comforter of the believer; who indwells Christians uniting them as one in Christ, enabling them to live a Godly life and empowers them to serve in the church and community in the name of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28:19; John 16:7-11; Acts 5:3-4; Romans 8:9, 13-14; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19-20; 12:12-14, Ephesians 4:1-7,30; 5-18) .

 

  • We believe the triune God created the universe apart from pre-existing materials and without any evolutionary process as set forth in the first eleven chapters of Genesis.

 

  • We believe that man is the direct creation of God – body, soul, and spirit – and is made in the image of God. (Genesis 1:26; Genesis 1:1; Matthew 19:4; John 1:1-3; Romans 1:20; Colossians 1:16-17; Hebrews 11:3).

 

  • We believe that Adam, the first man, sinned by disobedience. This act resulted in the fall of mankind and incurred both physical and spiritual death for all.

 

  • We believe that everyone will one day stand before the judgment seat of Christ, and there receive eternal life or death. We believe eternal salvation for the lost comes through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone, by His sacrifice on the cross alone, is a gift and not as a result of works. Salvation is found in no one else but Christ, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we are saved. (Romans 3:10, 23; 5:12; 14:10; 2 Corinthians 5:10; John 1:12; 3:3, 17:17; Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5; James 1:17; Acts 4:12)

 

  • We believe that heaven is the glorious eternal home for those who are saved by accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and that hell is the place of eternal separation from God for all who reject Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior (2 Corinthians 5:10; Revelation 20:10,15; John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17).

 

  • We believe that there is one body, one Spirit, one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all and that this unity of Spirit in the body of believers through the bond of peace overcomes any denominational differences (Ephesians 4:3-4).

 

  • We believe that the local church observes two ordinances – baptism and the Lord’s Supper (Communion).

 

  • We believe that all who have received Christ as Savior and Lord should be baptized in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; and that the Lord’s Supper should be observed in remembrance of Jesus Christ’s death for our sins until He comes again (Matthew 26:26-30; 28:19-20; Romans 6:3-6; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26).

 

  • We believe that marriage has been established by God. We define “marriage” as the exclusive covenantal union of one man and one woman in which such union is a lifetime commitment. (Genesis 2:21-24; Mark 10:6-9

What Our Families Are Saying About Us

Testimonials from our current parents, alumni parents, and community friends.

All three of our children graduated from Hillcrest. The school was integral in being a part of "our village" in raising our kids. The administrative leadership is second to none and the teaching staff is head's above any other I have ever encountered. The love and the joy of the Lord are present in all aspects of Hillcrest.

Melissa Dundas

The individual attention is fantastic. The camaraderie and relationships of the entire family with the staff, students, and parents is positive and inviting. The level of academics has been great at levels we are at to this point. The experience my daughter has had in kindergarten is beyond anything we could have hoped for.

Tamryn Bua

We value the safe campus, Christian education, small class sizes, and my son loves all his teachers.

Alexander Ilao

Amazing Christian-based love and support for the kids. Skilled teachers and staff who keep the kids engaged and make learning fun. I'm not sure how any other school could match the commitment and call of the Hillcrest team!
