The doctrinal basis of faith of Christian Family Schools Limited - Bethany School shall be the fundamental truths of Christianity:
The divine inspiration, inerrancy, and infallibility of holy scripture as contained in the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments and as originally given, and in its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
The Unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in the Godhead and the sovereignty of God in creation, providence and redemption.
The creation of man in the image of God and the universal sinfulness and guilt of human nature since the Fall rendering man subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
The Lord Jesus Christ as true God and true man, His deity, incarnation, virgin birth, sinless life, atoning death, and physical resurrection and only head of the universal Church of all believers.
Redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through the shed blood and sacrificial death (as our representative and substitute) of Jesus Christ.
The necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit to make the death of Christ effective to the individual sinner, granting him repentance towards God and faith in Jesus Christ and the indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in all believers.
The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
