Statement of Faith

New Tampa Christian Academy believes that the one, only, living and true God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – reveals Himself in creation and savingly in Holy Scripture, which is His inerrant and infallible Word contained in the sixty-six books of the Bible. His Word is Truth and is the rule of life and only authoritative basis for faith and practice.

God, the great Creator of all things, upholds, directs, disposes and governs all creatures, actions and things, from the greatest to the least, by His most wise and holy prividence, according to His infallible foreknowledge, and the free and immutable counsel of His own will, to the praise of the glory of His wisdom, power, justice, goodness and mercy.

Because of the sin of Adam, human kind is blinded to the truth and is incapable of truly understanding or obeying God’s truth. Left to himself, man is inclined from birth to reject God and to seek truth apart from Holy Scripture.

Only through faith in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ can mankind find freedom from the bondage of sin. Christ alone has taken upon himself the penalty for sin, and offers sinners life and salvation by Jesus Christ, requiring of them faith in Him, that they may be saved; and promising to give to all those that are ordained unto eternal life His Holy Spirit, to make them willing and able to believe. The Holy Spirit also bears witness within the heart of the Christian that he or she is redeemed by the blood of Christ.

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” (Proverbs 9:10
