Our Statement of Belief
Bell Joy Preparatory Academy is an elite Christ-centered college preparatory institution.
Our Statement of Belief reflects basic tenets of the Christian Faith & Theology, which is the doctrinal basis for Bell Joy Preparatory Academy and informs our curriculum. It is intentionally brief:
1. We believe that God is the Holy Trinity; God – The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
2. We believe that the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.
3. We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God and through disobedience, fell separating himself from God. Through that sin we feel that all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God.
4. We believe that because all people are sinners and have lost their ability to live perfectly, they cannot enter Heaven and eternal life through their own actions or works.
5. We believe that it is solely by receiving God’s grace, through faith in Jesus Christ alone as personal Lord and Savior and His perfect righteousness imputed to the individual, that the sins of any individual are forgiven; and with that forgiveness, eternal life in Heaven is granted.
6. We believe that the Holy Bible is the divine, inspired, and infallible Word of God and is the only rule of authority for all matters of faith and obedience.
7. We believe that God has given parents or guardians the responsibility of bringing up their children in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord.”
8. We believe that a most consistent and meaningful education will result when the home, the school, and the church are in agreement on the basic concepts of life.
9. We believe that all of the world is a part of God’s creation and He is sovereign over and in all things, and that every academic subject must be taught and interpreted from a Biblical perspective.
