What We Believe

Hillside Christian School families come from a variety of Christian faith backgrounds. The school bases its ministry on the following Statement of Faith:

THE BIBLE: We believe the Bible is the only inerrant, inspired Word of God. It is the
divine and final authority for Christian faith and life.
GOD: We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy
JESUS CHRIST: We believe in the deity and humanity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin
birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His death on the cross as a sacrifice for our
sins, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily
resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return
in power and glory.
HOLY SPIRIT: We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the
Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
SALVATION: We believe that salvation from sin and sin’s consequences is a gift from
God that is freely given to all who believe in Jesus as Savior. The shed blood of Jesus
Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for lost
and sinful humanity.
CHRIST RETURNS: We believe in the personal and imminent return of our Lord Jesus
Christ, and that this has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.
ETERNAL LIFE: We believe in a bodily resurrection, of the believer to everlasting joy
with the Lord, and of the unbeliever to judgment and eternal separation from God.
MARRIAGE: We believe that the Biblical definition of marriage is between one man
and one woman.
