Because of the spiritual unity of believers, by our common faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, individual doctrinal differences and church practices should not hinder the unity of Christian home educators.
NJHSA is open to all Christian families who fulfill the requirements for membership as set forth in Article IV of the handbook, regardless of other doctrinal differences, denomination affiliation, or individual church practices. The following Statement of Faith represents certain core beliefs of the Board of NJHSA, ASC leadership teams and NJHSA membership which must not be compromised or diminished in our common goal of Christian Education. Each Board member and NJHSA member attests to this Statement of Faith with clear conscience before God as a condition of his or her service and association with NJHSA.
Because of the spiritual unity of believers, by our common faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, individual doctrinal differences and church practices should not hinder the unity of Christian home educators. At the same time, we desire a Statement of Faith that is specific enough to exclude those who belong to groups generally regarded as cults or those who would call themselves “Christian” but reject the biblical truths and principles below. Without apology, NJHSA espouses a creationist approach. Paragraphs 3 and 4 are included, therefore, not as a test of whether the subscriber is a Christian, but for consistency of approach in all coursework endorsed by NJHSA. Similarly, as society and Government regulation condone actions and behaviors contrary to God’s word, paragraphs 12 and 13 are included, not to put a stumbling block before members, but to affirm a common Biblical worldview amongst the NJHSA community, rejecting all that is contrary to Scripture, that adds to it, or takes away from it.
