Doctrinal Statement


We believe and maintain 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.

Clearwater Christian College does not endorse or support the National or World Council of Churches or the modern charismatic movement.
