STATEMENT OF FAITH
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
FOUNDATIONAL BELIEFS AND TEACHINGS
We believe in the creation of man by the direct act of God (Gen. 1:26-28; Gen. 5:1,2).
We believe that God wonderfully and immutable creates each person as male or female, and those distinct, complimentary genders each and together reflect the image and nature of God. (Gen. 1:26-27)
Firm Foundation Christian School was established a private non-denominational school in 1995 as a non-profit ministry sponsored by the Hockinson Apostolic Lutheran Church.
The Bible states that parents are to raise up their children in the way they should go, and when they are old they shall not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6). At Firm Foundation Christian School our purpose is to assist the parents in meeting this objective (through the ministry of teaching and furthering the Christian mission), to point their children toward Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, and give them a morally upright approach to life.
Firm Foundation Christian School acknowledges the trust placed in the school by its enrolled families, and holds in high regard the authority of the home and church to teach those distinctive doctrines held in esteem by a family’s own local church. We focus on basic Christian teachings that are common to all believers. The Statement of Faith is fundamental to basic Christian tenets and contains those doctrines to which we unreservedly adhere and teach. We also believe that faculty, staff, parents and students would desire to have a basic understanding of the doctrinal position of our parent organization, the Hockinson Apostolic Lutheran Church which is a member of the Apostolic Lutheran Church of America (ALCA). The following areas are left to the teaching of the home and family church:
FFCS would like to thank you as parents for joining us in the partnership of the academic, spiritual, and emotional education of your children. We believe that the parents are the primary educators (Deut. 4:9) of our children. However, to enable our school to function effectively and smoothly, we depend upon your support, which we view as essential. You are encouraged to discuss any of the following details with the staff.
1. We understand that the primary purpose of Christian education is to prepare our children to function effectively and joyfully in the world as submitted servants of Jesus Christ.
