Bloomsburg Christian School, as a ministry of Calvary Baptist Church, is committed to the fundamental doctrines of the faith which are summarized below. A complete statement can be obtained from the school or church offices.

 We believe:

  1. The Bible is the inspired Word of God - absolute, complete, and without error. II Tim. 3:16,17; II Peter 1:19-21; Rev. 22:18-19
  2. There is one triune and living God, active in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Exodus 20:2,3; Matt. 28:19,20; I Cor. 8:6; II Cor. 13:14; I John 5:7
  3. Jesus Christ is deity - virgin born, risen from the dead and living today. John 1:1-3,14; Acts 1:11; I Cor. 15:1-4; Phil. 2:5-8
  4. Jesus will return personally prior to establishing an earthly kingdom through which He and His followers will reign for 1,000 years. Rev. 13:1-18; John 5:24; Rom. 8:1; II Cor. 5:1-19; I Thess. 4:13-18; I John 4:17; Rev. 20:11-15
  5. Man is alienated from God and is totally incapable of saving himself. Gen. 1:26,27; 2:7; 3:1-19; Rom. 1:18-32; 5:12; Eph. 2:1-3
  6. Salvation is only by the grace of God through faith in the finished work of Christ and is not earned through any good works of the believer. Acts 16:31; Rom. 10:9-13; Eph. 2:8,9; Titus 3:5-7
  7. The Holy Spirit indwells every believer and cannot be removed. He guarantees the salvation of all those who believe in Christ. John 3:5; 16:8-11; Romans 8:14; I Cor. 12:11-14; I Cor. 14; Eph. 1:13,14
  8. There will be a bodily resurrection of both the just and the unjust resulting in the everlasting life and joy of believers and the conscious eternal punishment of those who do not believe. John 5:24; Rom. 8:1; II Cor. 5:1-19; I Thess. 4:13-18; I John 4:17; Rev. 20:11-15
  9. The church is the company of all believers, and each believer must become part of a local church and strive to fulfill the Great Commission. Matt. 18:15-17; I Cor. 1:2; 6:4; 7:17; 11:16; I Tim. 3:1-15
  10. Baptism is by immersion, is for believers, and is a symbol of joining Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. Acts 8:36-39; Rom. 6;3-5; Col. 2:12
  11. The Lord's supper is a memorial of the offering for our sins and an anticipation of eternal fellowship with Christ and His people. I Cor. 11:23-32
  12. Every child of God must live a life of obedience to God and separation from evil. Rom. 6:16-23
