The following statement is based upon the Baptist Faith and Message (2000) and is the doctrinal position on which Lancaster Christian Academy operates:

  1. The Bible is God’s inspired Word and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. Therefore, the Bible is true and trustworthy. 
  2. There is one and only one living and true God. 
  3. Man is made in God’s image. He created them male and female as the crowning work of His creation. The gift of gender is thus part of the goodness of God’s creation. Human creation, by nature, is full of sinners (Romans 3:23). Salvation is only by grace, a free gift of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, who died for our sins. Through salvation, man becomes a new creation in Christ.
  4. Jesus was raised from the dead and now sits at the right of the Father. One day He will return for His bride, believers in Christ. But, until Jesus’ return, believers have the Holy Spirit as our helper to discern how to live. 
  5. God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. From the moment of conception, children are a blessing and a heritage from the Lord. Parents are to demonstrate to their children God’s pattern for marriage. Parents are to teach their children spiritual and moral values and lead them, through consistent lifestyle example and loving discipline, to make choices based on biblical truth. Children are to honor and obey their parents.
