Our Statement of Belief

The beliefs of Punxsutawney Christian School are based on the Bible alone.  God’s Word is infallible and consists of the sixty-six (66) books of the Old and New Testaments.  The Bible is inspired by the Holy Spirit and was written without error in the original manuscripts.  God’s Word is the ultimate authority for every issue that it addresses (2 Tim. 3:16). The Bible teaches:

  • There is only one God and He exists eternally in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – each of which possesses equally all the attributes of Deity. (John 14:16, Mark 1:10-11)
  • Jesus Christ is God, who became human through his miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth.  Therefore, He is divine in every way. (Colossians 2:9, Matt. 1:23)
  • Jesus lived a sinless life and, because He loved us, voluntarily died for the sins of men and women as their substitute.  In doing so, He satisfied divine justice and brings salvation for those who receive Him through faith and repentance. (2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Peter 3:18,      Mark 1:14-15)
  • Jesus rose from the dead in the same body that He had lived in. (1 Corinthians 15:3-6)
  • Jesus ascended bodily into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God the Father, where He, the only mediator between God and man, continually makes intercession for those who have received Him. (Luke 24:50-51, Romans 8:34, 1 John 2:1)
  • God, the Creator of all things, made people in His own image, unique from everything else that He has created.  When the first man and woman sinned by disobeying God, the human race was alienated from the Creator and was brought under divine condemnation. (Genesis 1 & 2)
  • Human nature is corrupt through the sin of our first parents (Adam and Eve), and is totally unable to please God.  Every person needs to be changed by the Holy Spirit (or born again). (Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Romans 5:12, John 3:3, 2 Corinthians 5:17)
  • A person cannot be reconciled (or “made right”) with God by good works.  Eternal life and forgiveness is a gift that is not earned. Anyone who receives Jesus as their Savior and Lord is proclaimed as being perfect before God and all of their sins are forgiven because they were paid for by Jesus when He died for them. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
  • The Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and glorify Jesus Christ and to show what He can do in the hearts of people.  He convicts people of sin, draws sinners to Christ, and gives anyone new life within when they receive Jesus. The Holy Spirit lives within each believer to help, guide, and strengthen them in their walk with Christ in this world. (John 16:12-14, Romans 8:1-2)
  • At physical death, the believer enters immediately into the eternal, conscious fellowship with God and awaits the resurrection of their body.  Likewise, the unbeliever, at physical death, enters immediately into eternal, conscious separation from God and awaits the resurrection of their body into everlasting judgment and condemnation. (John 5:24, Revelation 20:11-15)
  • Jesus Christ will personally and bodily come back to this earth to complete the eternal plan of God. (Acts 1:11)
  • The Lord Jesus Christ commanded His church, consisting of all true believers, to proclaim the good news of the cross throughout the world and make disciples in every nation on earth. (Acts 1:8, Matthew 28:19-20)
