Doctrinal Statement

Clearwater Christian College operates from and celebrates the following:

  • The plenary divine inspiration of the Scriptures in the original languages; their consequent inerrancy and infallibility; and as the Word of God, their supreme and final authority in faith and life;
  • The triune God:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;
  • The essential, absolute, eternal Deity; and the real and proper, but sinless, humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ;
  • His birth of the virgin Mary;
  • His substitutionary, expiatory death, in that He gave His life "a ransom for many";
  • His resurrection from among the dead in the same body in which He was crucified, and the imminent and premillennial bodily return of Jesus Christ in glory to this earth;
  • The total depravity of man through the Fall;
  • Salvation, the effect of regeneration by the Spirit and the Word, not by works but by grace through faith.
  • The everlasting bliss of the saved and the everlasting suffering of the lost;
  • The real spiritual unity in Christ of all redeemed by His precious blood;
  • The necessity of maintaining, according to the Word of God, the purity of the Church in doctrine and life; and
  • Still believing the Apostles' Creed to be a statement of scriptural truth, we therefore incorporate it in these articles of faith.
