CHRISTIAN EXPERIENCE

Using the space provided, please respond to the following questions.

STATEMENT OF FAITH

  1. We believe that the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God, and that it shall remain to the end of the age the only complete and final revelation of the will of God to man. We interpret it literally and accept it as the supreme and final authority in faith and life.
  2.  We believe that there is one God, Almighty, Creator, and Sustainer of the universe and eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in the virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His death and bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father and His imminent personal return to earth in power and glory.
  4. We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person, equal with God the Father and God the Son; that He was active in the creation, participated in the inspiration of the Scriptures, and is presently engaged in convicting the world of sin, judgment and righteousness; and that He bears witness to the truth of the Gospel and indwells Christians to enable them to live godly lives.
  5. We believe in the Genesis account of creation; that man was created directly in God’s own image and after His own likeness, and not by evolution; and that man was created in innocence, but voluntarily sinned.  As a consequence, all men are now sinners, inclined to evil, and are under just condemnation without defense or excuse. We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God.  (Genesis 1:26-27). Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.
  6. We believe that God created marriage to be exclusively the union of one man and one woman, and that intimate sexual activity is to occur exclusively within that union.
  7. We believe that God has provided the only salvation for man through the death and resurrection of His Son Jesus; that salvation is achieved through the conviction of sin by the Holy Spirit and faith in Jesus Christ as Savior; and that all who are truly born again are kept by God the Father for Jesus Christ.
  8. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost:  those who are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life in Heaven and those who are lost unto the resurrection of eternal damnation in Hell.
  9. We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other state of condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life.

This statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. We reserve the right to resolve disputes in accordance with biblical teaching. For purposes of Blackhawk Christian School’s faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, Blackhawk Christian School’s Board of Directors, is accountable to the Board of Elders of Blackhawk Ministries, who are the final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application for all ministries within the organization.

I certify that all information I have provided in order to apply for and secure work with the employer is true, complete, and correct. I understand that failure to complete any portion of this application or to sign this application may result in rejection of my application. 

If I am hired, I understand that I am free to resign at any time, with or without prior notice, and the employer reserves the same right to terminate my employment at any time, with or without cause and without prior notice, except as may be required by law.

I authorize investigation of all statements contained in this application for employment as may be necessary in arriving at an employment decision. I understand that this application is not intended to be a contract of employment.
