Statement of Faith and Purpose

The purpose of Fundy Home Educators (FHE) is to provide information, inspiration and support from a Christian perspective to home school families.  All of our activities will be consistently and forthrightly Christian to the honour and glory of the Lord God.  Families who are not Christian are welcome to participate; however, anyone holding a position of leadership must adhere to our statement of faith.

 

We Believe

  1. The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God and constitutes His complete and final revelation to men.  The Bible, in its original autograph, is without error in whole and in part, including theological concepts as well as geographical and historical details.
  2. God has existed from all eternity in three persons:  God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  Jesus Christ was God come in human flesh being fully God and fully man, except without sin.
  3. All are sinners, in violation of God’s righteous requirements and His holy character, both by nature and by choice, and are therefore under His wrath and just condemnation, and are hopelessly lost.
  4. The central purpose of the coming of Jesus Christ was to pay the penalty for man’s sin through His substitutionary death on the cross.  His visible, bodily resurrection was proof He had accomplished this purpose.
  5. Salvation is offered as a gift, free to the sinner.  The gift must be responded to in individual faith, not trusting in any personal works whatsoever, but in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ alone.
  6. A Christian should live for the glory of God and the well-being of all men; his conduct should be blameless before the world; he should be faithful steward of his possessions; he should seek to realize, for himself and others, maturity in the Christian life.
  7. Christian parents are ordained by God to fulfill the primary responsibility of training their children under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.  God will hold parents accountable for their children’s spiritual, emotional, academic, and social training.
