Shining Star Christian Prep Academy
We are excited you have an interest in our Christian school. It is our desire to assist you in your endeavors toward academic excellence and educational advancement.
Our vision is: To form a partnership with the parent and the church to instill in their children a total Biblical worldview.
To prepare students spiritually, academically, and socially with their God-given talents to live a life that honors God.
To "Biblically Prepare Eternal Souls"
The students will be taught a Christian world view which comes from the Bible. The school and the home must cooperate closely in every phase of the student's development, especially as it relates to the school program. Subjects and activities will be integrated with Biblical teaching. The student will be instructed in proper application of Biblical ethics and standards of morality to every part of life. The school will strive to instill a desire for excellence in the academic disciplines and the skills required for higher education and future employment. The school will help the student to develop his personality based on a proper understanding and acceptance of himself as a unique individual created in the image of God. The school strives to help students develop a right relationship with God, which results in respectful and loving concern for family members, teachers, and all others in society. The school will emphasize to the students that their bodies are the temples of God's Spirit and that they have a responsibility to treat their bodies with great respect. Physical fitness will be promoted through physical education and extracurricular athletic opportunities.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
ARTICLE I – THE SCRIPTURE
We believe the Bible to be the verbally inspired Word of God: the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. It is our supreme and final authority for faith and practice. (II Tim. 3:15-17)
ARTICLE II – GOD
We believe in one God eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Gen. 1:1; Deut. 6:4; John 4:24; Rom. 8:14,15)
ARTICLE III – JESUS CHRIST
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory. (Isa. 7:14; John 1:1-18)
ARTICLE IV – HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, one with the Father and the Son, the indweller of every believer whereby each is sealed unto the day of redemption of the body. His presence in the Christian is the assurance of God to bring the believer into the fullness of the stature of Christ. We believe the "fullness of the Holy Spirit" is manifested by fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22,23) and by power in witnessing. (Acts 1:8; John 15:1-8) We do not agree with the modern day "tongues" movement. (Isa. 61:13; John 16:7-15; Rom. 8:9-11)
