Statement of Faith & Curriculum
We believe that all people are connected to a higher spiritual power and for us, we believe in God, Jesus Christ and in the Holy Spirit.
TCP Academy embodies Christianity in everything that we do and embeds the most important commandment of all in our school culture, LOVE. We believe that human beings are called to love each other, all people, with agape love and it is through this love that we accept all people – people of all races, ethnicities, cultures, faiths and religions – into our school.
We believe it is our duty to plant seeds in the hearts of our students and to water those seeds by discussing the life of Jesus and the teachings that scripture provides us. Ultimately, we strongly believe that God has given us the free will to choose, therefore, it is our duty at TCP Academy to guide our students to discovering who God is through exploring Christianity so the students themselves can choose what they want to believe in.
It is our hope that through our attitudes, actions, and way of life we inspire our students to explore Christianity and choose to submit their lives to serving Jesus Christ.
TCP Academy embraces diversity and inclusion in all aspects of the words and provides students with a judgement-free culture that accepts each student for who they are as an individual and what they choose to believe in.
We believe that the original manuscripts of the Old and New Testaments comprise the full, word- for-word, truthful, inerrant Word of God, which is the supreme and final authority in doctrine and practice
God the Father
We believe He is the Father of all men in the non-salvation, Creator- creature sense. We believe He is the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the spiritual Father of all who believe in Christ.
Jesus Christ - God’s begotten Son
We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, born of a virgin and conceived by the Holy Spirit, and who is completely God and man. We believe in His sinless life, His bodily resurrection from the grave, His ascension into heaven, and His bodily return from heaven. We believe that Jesus Christ was sent in human form by God himself to die for our sins and it is through belief in Him that we are saved and will spend eternity in heaven.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit regenerates, indwells, baptizes, seals, and bestows spiritual gifts upon all who know Christ as Lord and Savior. We believe the Holy Spirit fills, teaches, leads, assures, and prays for all believers who submit and dedicate their lives to serving Christ.
Man and Sin
We believe God created man male and female in His own image and commanded them to be fruitful and multiply and to have dominion over creation. God’s creation and mandate to Adam and Eve, a real man and woman, establish the model for the family, and, therefore, marriage is to be exclusively between one man and one woman. We believe God made man subordinate to Himself and it was through Adam’s attempt to throw off God’s authority, in his first sin, that condemned not only himself but all of mankind to an estate of sin. We believe all of mankind is separated from God and in need of a redeemer, Jesus Christ.
We believe that assurance comes to the believer from three primary means: trusting the Word of God’s promises, the witness of the Holy Spirit, and a persevering walk with the Lord. Through these three primary means, we believe that through Him we have obtained an inheritance in the Kingdom of God and that we as believers are eternally secure, have everlasting life, will not come into condemnation, and shall never perish.
Faith and Science
It is from our faith that we believe man was created by God himself and that woman was created by the rib of man. To this belief, we teach that the biblical account of creation is true and that the theory of evolution is false. Therefore, if/when the topic arises in the Science curriculum, we believe students should not be hidden from the teachings of evolution, in fact, we believe this topic will embody our dialectic and rhetoric curriculum philosophy, giving students the opportunity to choose for themselves what to believe.
