The statement of faith adopted by the Apple Valley Christian Academy Corporation is limited to primary Christian doctrine, which is considered to be central to all Christian denominations and which sets Protestant Christianity apart from other faiths. The following statement of faith is taken directly from the Apple Valley Christian Academy Corporation Bylaws:

We Believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible, inerrant, and authoritative word of God. (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:16-21; Proverbs 30:5-6)

We Believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  (I John 5:7; Ephesians 4:4-6; Psalm 147:5)

We Believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return to power and glory.  (Matthew 1:18-25; Isaiah 7:14; John 1:1-14; John 3:16; Acts 3:22-25; Acts 1:11; Hebrews 9:24; Titus 2:11-14; I Corinthians 15:22-28; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 20:1-6)

We Believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature; and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace and through faith we are saved.  (Hebrews 2:9; Romans 5:10; II Corinthians 5:17-21; Mark 10:45; Romans 10:13-16; John 3:6-8; John 3:16; Romans 3:23)

We Believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.  (II Corinthians 5:10; I Corinthians 3:11-15; John 5:28-29; Acts 24:15; Luke 20:35-38; I Corinthians 15:22-24; I Thessalonians 4:16; II Thessalonians 2:1-18; Revelation 20:10-15; Mark 9:44-48)

We Believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, that the church includes the whole company of believers of this age of whatever race, and is known only to the eye of God.  The church is a company of believers baptized in the name of the Triune God, and observes the methods, ordinances, and principles laid down in the New Testament.  (Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 5:27; Ephesians 2:19-21; I Corinthians 12:27-28; Romans 6:17; II Timothy 1:130

We Believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.  (I Corinthians 6:19; I John 3:24)
