Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith

Rooted and grounded in the historic Christian faith, Clapham School is neither sectarian nor parochial, and it is unaffiliated with any one specific church or denomination.

We believe in God,

Who has primary concern for His own glory and provides the example for all we do at Clapham School.

We believe in God,

Who is the Infinite Author and Sustainer of all things, who called the universe into being, created persons in His own image, and set before each one the ways of life and death.

We believe in God,

Who in holiness and love sent prophets and apostles to declare His will and who, in the fullness of time, sent forth His Son, Jesus Christ, to be our crucified and risen Savior.

We believe in God,

Who, in Jesus Christ, lived among us, shared our common lot, set a perfect example, taught with divine authority, died in the place of sinners, and rose again to give salvation to all who believe in Him.

We believe in God,

Who, with Christ, sent the Holy Spirit to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, and to create and renew the Church that unites faithful people of all ages, tongues and races.

We believe in God,

Who has called us by grace into His church through faith in Jesus Christ to accept the cost of discipleship, proclaim the gospel to the world, and to serve our neighbor in humility and love.

We believe in God,

Who grants us forgiveness and grace, who calls us to share in His work in the world, who assures us of the triumph of good over evil, and who brings us home to the glory of His presence.

We believe in God,

Who calls us to a life of obedience to faith in the cross of Christ, who through His Spirit enables us to serve Him and engage His world with truth and grace for life to all who believe.

We believe in God,

Who has revealed Himself and His will in Holy Scripture, which is without error or untruth, and is our final authority.
