ABOUT UPPER CUMBERLAND CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
QUESTION: What is meant by "non-doctrinal"?
We do not promote one denomination's doctrine over another. This means that we will not take sides on denominationally divisive issues such as form & function of water baptism, the role of women in ministry, or the debate over eternal security. We will always direct students back to their families and pastors to help them understand & develop their own beliefs on these issues.
QUESTION: What is the statement of belief of Upper Cumberland Christian Academy?
We can best state our core beliefs on the Apostle's Creed:
"We believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; He descended into hell. On the third day He rose again; He ascended into heaven, He is seated at the right hand of the Father, and He will come again to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit and the holy universal church, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. AMEN.
