The following is the Scriptural foundation of beliefs on which White Mountain Christian Academy is based. They will be unapologetically taught in various ways through all grade levels. These statements will be considered primary doctrine. Secondary doctrines and issues will not be presented as primary doctrine. When these doctrines or issues arise, they will be referred back to the church Elders for final authority.
We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as being verbally inspired and completely inerrant in the original writings and of supreme and final authority in faith and life (Psalm 119:89; Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 5:17-18; Luke 24:27, 44; John 10:35; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21).
We believe in God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:26; Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 44:6; Matthew 28:18-19: John 6:27; Acts 5:3-4; Hebrews 1:1-8; 2 Corinthians 13:14).
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:16, 20-25; Luke 7:48; John 11:35; Philippians 2:5-8; Titus 2:13).
We believe that man and woman were created in the image of God and their sexual identity is given by God according to their DNA at birth; that he sinned and hereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature (Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 2:16-17; Genesis 3:1-7, 22-24; Psalm 14:1-3; Psalm 51:5; Ephesians 2:1-3).
We believe that God ordained marriage as a life-long relationship between one man and one woman for the purpose of sexual intimacy, companionship, and procreation. Marriage is a picture of Christ’s sacrificial love for the church and the church’s joyful submission to Christ. (Gen 2:18-25; Matt 19:3-9; Eph 5:22-33)
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as the representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood (Isaiah 52:11-53:12; John 1:29; John 3:16; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 9:22).
We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and in His present life for us as High Priest and Advocate (Isaiah 53:12; John 20:19-20; Acts 1:9-11; Hebrews 4:14; Hebrews 7:25; 1 John 2:1).
We believe in “that blessed hope,” the personal, bodily return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (John 14:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Acts 1:9-11).
We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ, are born of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God, a relationship in which they are eternally secure (John 1:12; John 10:28-30; Acts 16:31; Romans 8:28-39; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5).
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost (Isaiah 53:12; Luke 16:19-26) John 5:25-29; Revelation 14:10-11; Revelation 20:11-15).
We believe that the gifts of the Spirit are given to (1) glorify God and (2) edify the body of believers (1 Corinthians 12:1-11; 14:1-12), and that any gift used within the church must be in total agreement with God’s Word.
We believe God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ (Acts 3:19-21, Romans 10:9-10, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11).
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 doctrines of White Mountain Christian Academy.
We believe that man and woman were created in the image of God and their sexual identity is given by God according to their DNA at birth; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature (Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 2:16-17; Genesis 3:1-7, 22-24; Psalm 14:1-3; Psalm 51:5; Ephesians 2:1-3).
We believe that God ordained marriage as a life-long relationship between one man and one woman for the purpose of sexual intimacy, companionship, and procreation. Marriage is a picture of Christ’s sacrificial love for the church and the church’s joyful submission to Christ. (Genesis 2:18-25, Matthew 19:3-9; Ephesians 5:22-33)
We believe that any form of sexual immorality (including but not limited to adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, and bisexual conduct) is sinful and offensive to God (Matthew 15:18-20, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10).
We believe that to preserve the function and integrity of White Mountain Christian Academy and to provide a Biblical role model to the student body and the community, it is imperative that all persons employed by or enrolled in White Mountain Christian Academy in any capacity or who serve as volunteers, adhere to and abide by our Statement of Faith and Statement on Human Nature, Marriage, and Sexuality.

Staff, volunteers, visitors, parents, and students will at all times live in obedience to the Bible’s stance on human nature, marriage, and sexuality. Anyone acting or speaking in contradiction to Scriptural principles on these subjects will immediately be asked to leave the premises.
