North Henry Academy Statement of Faith

North Henry Academy
The following statements represent what North Henry Academy holds and teaches in classroom Bible curriculum. All staff members must subscribe to and teach these truths. For a more complete description of each statement of faith, see the academy office for a copy of the document entitled The Baptist Faith and Message.


North Henry Academy believes the Holy Bible –66 Books of the Old and New Testaments –was written by men divinely inspired and is the record of God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure, with salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. It is the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried.

(Exodus 24:4; Psalm 19:7-10; 119:11; Luke 21:33; John 5:39; Romans 15:4; II Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; I Peter 1:19-21)


North Henry Academy believes there is one and only one living and true eternal God to whom we owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience. God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit with distinct personal attributes but without division of nature, essence, or being.

(Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Psalm 19:1-3; Isaiah 43:3; Mark 1:9-11; John 1:1-18; Romans 1:3-4; Ephesians 1:20; Revelation 1:13-16; Acts 1:8; Galatians 4:6)


North Henry Academy believes that man was created by God, in His own image, and is the crowning work of His creation, and though in the beginning, he was innocent of sin, by his free choice sinned against God and brought sin to the human race. Only the grace of God can bring man back into His holy fellowship and enable him to fulfill the creative purpose of God.

(Genesis 1:26-30; Psalm 1; Isaiah 6:5; Matthew 16:26; Romans 1:19-32; Ephesians 2:1-22)


North Henry Academy believes that salvation involves the redemption of the whole man and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer who turns from sin and trusts in Christ.

(Genesis 3:15; Exodus 3:4-17; Matthew 1:21; John 1:11-14; Romans 1:16-18; I Corinthians 1:18)


North Henry Academy believes that the New Testament Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is the local body of baptized believers who are associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the Gospel. North Henry Academy believes in baptism by immersion which symbolizes the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of his old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus by the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit. North Henry Academy further believes the Lord’s Supper to be a symbolic act of obedience whereby the body assembles and partakes of Christ’s body and blood.

(Matthew 16:15-19; Acts 2:41-42; 5:11-14; Romans 1:7; I Corinthians 1:2; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; Colossians 1:18; Revelation2-3)


North Henry Academy believes that God in His own time and in His own way will bring the world to its appropriate end and according to His promise. Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory to the earth. North Henry Academy believes the dead will be raised and Christ will judge and rule in righteousness. The unrighteous will be assigned to the place of everlasting punishment and the righteous will in their resurrected and glorified bodies receive their reward, dwelling forevermore in Heaven with the Lord.

(Isaiah 2:4; Matthew 16:27; 18:8-9; Luke 12:40; Acts 1:11; Romans 14:10; I Corinthians 4:5; II Corinthians 5:10; Philippians 3:20-21; I Thessalonians 4:14-18; II Thessalonians 1:7ff; I Timothy 6:14; Titus 2:13; Hebrews 9:27-28; II Peter3:7ff; Jude 14; Revelation 1:18; 20:1-22:13)
