The Statement of Faith is the central statement of Maranatha High School in matters of identity and nature, core beliefs that guide our learning, teaching and living. In faithfulness to God, we joyfully and humbly affirm the following Statement of Faith.


Article #1- THE BIBLE

a. We believe that the Bible was written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:20-21) and that it is without error in the original writings. The Scriptures are profitable for teaching, reproof, correction, and training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16-17), that the person may be complete in Christ.

b. We believe that the Bible in its entirety, both Old and New Testament (all 66 books), is true, unchangeable, and authoritative for life and godliness (2 Timothy 3:15-17). It is the complete revelation of God’s will for salvation, sufficient for all that He requires us to believe and do, and final in its authority over every domain of knowledge. Thus the entire Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are without error or misstatement in their moral and spiritual teaching and record of historical facts and people (John 17:17).

c. We believe that the canon (standard) of the Bible is complete and final and that nothing else needs to be added to it (Revelation 22:18-19).


Article #2- THE TRINITY

a. We believe in the Godhead, the Trinity (Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17; Matthew 28:19-20) who eternally exists in three persons: God the Father, Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

b. We believe in God the Father who is perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. He eternally exists (Gen. 1:1).

c. We believe in Jesus the Son, who was supernaturally conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 1:18) and born of Mary, a virgin (Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:27). His mission was to come to earth to die for the sins of humanity in order to redeem us. He later resurrected physically (1 Corinthians 15:12-17), thus confirming His deity and truth claims. 

d. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity who indwells and seals all believers in Christ. He is a person and possesses all the attributes of God. He is God (Ephesians 1:13-14).


Article #3- SALVATION

a. We believe that salvation is a gift from God and comes purely by grace through faith in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-10). 

b. We believe that those who confess and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ will be saved (Romans 10:9-10). This will result in a relationship with God through Christ for eternal life (John 3:16; 10:10).

c. We believe that the message of the Gospel begins with the bad news that all are sinners apart from Christ (Romans 3:10; 3:23; 6:23) and that we all desperately need a Savior who is Jesus (Acts 4:12). We believe the Gospel’s good news is that once we believe in Christ alone we will be his children (John 1:12).

d. We believe that once a person puts their faith in Jesus Christ they will be washed and regenerated by the person of the Holy Spirit and forgiven of their sins (1John 1:9; 1 John 2:2). This will lead, for anyone who has experienced the person of the Holy Spirit, to being sealed in Him, who is given as the pledge of our inheritance with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession to the praise of His glory (Ephesians 1:13-14).

e. We believe that all who reject Christ will suffer eternal separation and suffering in hell in a state of unutterable, endless torment and anguish (2 Thess. 1:5-11).



a. We believe that the Church consists of all believers in Christ who are a part, locally and universally, through the baptizing of the Spirit of God (1 Corinthians 12:13). As a result, all believers are a part of the body and bride of Christ.

b. We believe that the person of Jesus will return again bodily and visibly in the unknown future (1 Thessalonians 5:2). This is the glorious and blessed hope of the believer.


This Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself is the sole and final source of all that we believe. For purposes of Maranatha’s faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, our Head of School and Board of Trustees are Maranatha’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application, consistent with historical, evangelical Protestant interpretation, for the purposes of your relationship with Maranatha.
