OUR PURPOSE

South Aiken Baptist Christian School exists to help parents train children to become effective Christian citizens of good character. An effective Christian citizen is one who can read intelligently, write legibly, compute accurately, and spell correctly. He is one who recognizes Christ as his Savior and strives to live a Christian life that honors God and country. He knows correct behavior and has a desire to act correctly.

 

It is our purpose to give each child a well-rounded Christian education. 

According to Southern Baptist tradition, the Church sponsors ministries (i.e. school, daycare) by giving moral, spiritual and financial support necessary to establish these ministries. In turn, these ministries follow the guidelines established by the Church. These guidelines are as follows: to teach the Christian faith, maintain academic standards to make our students educationally competitive, to communicate with the parent church, and to strive to be financially sound. At no time should the school be considered as a separate entity: it is an arm of the church.

Statement

of Faith

We believe the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is the record of God’s revelation of Himself to man.  It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction.  It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter.  It reveals the principles by which God judges us and is, and will remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried.  The criterion by which the Bible is to be interpreted is Jesus Christ.

  1. We believe Jesus Christ was born of Mary, the virgin, and is the Son of God, and God the Son.

  2. We believe that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God.

  3. We believe that He rose from the grave the third day according to the Scriptures.

  4. We believe that He alone is the Great High Priest, and we need not the intercession of any man, but that Christ everliveth to make intercession for us.

  5. We believe that Christ will come again in Person, bodily and visibly, to establish His Kingdom on earth.

  6. We believe that in order to be saved the soul must be born again – “Ye must be born again.”  (John 3:7)

  7. We believe that every true born-again soul should declare his faith by the act of baptism (immersion in water), setting forth the Lord’s death, burial, and resurrection. (Matthew 3:13-16, John 3:22-23, Matthew 28:18-20)

  8. We believe that the church is a body of baptized believers whose mission is to preach and teach the Gospel of salvation to individual souls.

  9. We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. (Gen 1:26-27)  Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.

  10. We believe the term “marriage” has only one meaning:  the uniting of one biological man and one biological woman, not transgender or non-gender conforming person, in a single, exclusive union, delineated in Scripture (Gen. 2: 18-25). We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other (1 Cor. 6:18; 7: 2-5; Heb. 13:4).  We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.

  11. We believe that any form of sexual immorality (including, but not limited to, adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, transgender or gender non-conforming relationship; bestiality; incest, and use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to God. (Matt. 15: 18-20; 1 Cor. 6: 9-10)

  12. We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image.  Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception, through natural death.  We therefore defend, protect and value all human life. (Ps. 139)

"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
