Statement of Faith
Trinity Prep provides structure and access to group-centered learning while allowing each family to maintain a home-centered education. A Trinity Prep education is a collaborative one. Teachers provide worthwhile classroom activities based upon solid curriculum and proven classroom practices. Our school environment complements the student’s individual efforts at home. Parents facilitate the at-home work. A successful collaboration, where both entities fulfill their education roles, results in an excellent, Christ-centered process of spiritually and academically equipping our students.
Our Philosophy and Structure page outlines Trinity Prep’s education role and commitments to you, the parent.
I. Our Relationship to God: Salvation through Christ Alone
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, unchanging and infallible Word of God (2 Tim 3:15, 2 Peter 1:21).
We believe Christ is God (Jn:10:33), and had a sinless Life as an example to us (Heb. 4:15 & 7:26), He performed miracles (Jn.2:11), died to pay the price for our sins, (1 Cor. 15:3, Eph. 1:7), was resurrected from the dead, having conquered death for us all (Jn.11:25, 1 Cor. 15:4). After appearing to hundreds, including His disciples, he rose up into Heaven and is at the right hand of the Father (Mk.16:19), and will return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Rev. 19:11).
We believe that people are justified and saved solely by faith in Christ and His atoning death for us, offered by God’s grace. Believing in and accepting Christ brings about a vital living personal relationship to every believer (Rom.10:9-13, Jn 3:16-19, Rom.3:23, Rom.5:8-9, Eph.2:8-10).
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit who lives inside Christians, enabling them to live a godly life (Rom.8:13-14, 1 Cor. 3:16 & 6:19-20, Eph.4:30 & 5:18).
We believe in the ministry of all Christians to influence the world around them in accordance with Scripture and for the glory of Jesus Christ (Jer. 29:4-9, Matt. 5:13-16, 1 Cor. 9:19-23).
We believe God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, and who seek His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ (Acts 3:19-21, Rom.10:9-10, 1 Cor. 6:9-11).
II. Our Relationships to Others
We believe that God wonderfully and purposefully creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God (Gen. 1:26-27). God designed marriage for one man to one woman, and for that relationship to involve a level of intimacy exclusive to marriage and no other relationship. (Genesis 2:19-25). He designed the family to be a reflection of our relationship with Him: the parents love, provide for, guide, train, and care for the children; the children obey, trust, and learn from their parents. (Eph. 6:1, Col. 3:20; Exodus 20)
III. Behavior Expectations for Members of Trinity Prep Community
We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect and dignity (Mark 12:28-31, Luke 6:31). Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture nor the policies and procedures of Trinity Prep.
We believe that in order to preserve the function and integrity of Trinity Preparatory Academy (Trinity Prep) as a Christian school and ministry, every staff member, teacher, parent, student and volunteer must agree to and abide by this Statement of Faith in its entirety in personal conduct and verbal or written communication. For Trinity Prep to be a light to a fallen world and a “city on a hill” (Matthew 5:14), every member of our community must act and speak as faithful representatives of the truths articulated in this Statement of Faith.
Trinity Preparatory Academy is a Christian, Bible-believing institution, classified as a 501(c)3 religious organization by the IRS, and provides an education in a distinctly Christian environment.
We believe our Biblical role is to work in partnership with families to equip students to be Christ-like and able to share the gospel with a fallen world. If the Trinity Prep Board becomes aware of conduct in behavior or verbal or written communication, by a staff member, parent, or student, that is counter to or in opposition to this Statement of Faith and the Biblical lifestyle that the school teaches, Trinity Prep reserves the right, within its sole discretion, to refuse admission of an applicant, and to discontinue enrollment of a student, or terminate employment or volunteer status. The Trinity Prep Board of Directors holds final interpretive authority for purposes of enrollment or employment on Biblical lifestyle, meaning and application with regard to faith, doctrine, policy, practice and discipline.
