Doctrinal Statement

Our Doctrinal Position

Temple Christian School adheres to the doctrinal position of its founding church. The main purpose for Temple Christian Schools is to train young people to better serve and experience the love of Jesus Christ.

We believe in and teach these basic principles:

About God
We believe in one God who exists as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

About Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is God the Son, virgin-born, died on the cross, resurrected from the dead, is coming again, and is the only way to heaven.

About The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit lives in every Christian, provides power for living, gives understanding, and provides guidance for doing what is right.

About Human Beings
We believe that all people are created in the image of God but became alienated from God through sin, and as a result, need salvation.

About Salvation
We believe that salvation is a gift of God to all who receive it. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ can anyone be saved.  (The Good News)

About Eternal Security
We believe God gives people eternal life through Jesus Christ.  We believe this life cannot be gained, kept, or lost by humankind.

About Eternity
We believe that people will exist eternally either separated from God in Hell or in union with God in Heaven.

About The Bible
We believe the Bible was verbally inspired by God and without error in the original writings and has been supernaturally preserved throughout history. It is the supreme authority in all matters of truth.

About The Church
We believe that the church is the body of Christ. We believe all Christians are to be in covenant with a local body of believers.

About Human Sexuality
We believe that God's design for human sexuality is the marriage of one woman to one man. All sexual practices outside of God's plan are sinful.

Families from many faiths are served by Temple Christian School. We request that no student or parent become involved in any type of proselyting. Our host church, Temple Baptist Church does not practice this, and we cannot permit others to use the school to aid in the promotion of their particular church or faith. No attempt will ever be made by the school staff to pull a student away from his/her home church. Students from over 150 different churches and 35 different denominations make up the Temple family. While attempting to avoid "hot button" religious issues as much as possible, Temple Christian does, without apology, teach salvation only through Jesus Christ.
