The biblical truths found in the Imago Dei Classical Academy Statement of Faith as well as the principles outlined in the Imago Dei Classical Academy Position Statements provide the foundation for the standards of our school.
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
Reverence of God's Name
We believe reverence should be shown in all areas of instruction, proper respect, and consideration of God’s character to ensure that God’s name, character, and truth are honored and respected. References to the name or attributes of God must be consistent with biblical principles and should not be silly or trite.
Sanctity of Human Life
We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life. (Ps. 139.)
Gender and Sexuality
We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God (Gen. 1:26-27). Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.
Self-Identification, Homosexual, Bisexual, Transgender, and Other
We believe homosexual, bisexual, transgender, adultery, fornication, LGBTQ+, and any other action, speech, or behavior outside of God’s design to be sin. Therefore, declaring acceptance of, condoning the practice of, or stating support for any of the above behaviors is not acceptable from Imago Dei Classical Academy students and staff.
We believe the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture (Gen. 2:18-25). We believe that marriage between one man and one woman, for life, uniquely reflects Christ’s relationship with His church (Eph. 5:21-33). We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are bound together by the covenant relationship of marriage (1 Cor. 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb. 13:4). We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. We believe that any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, harassment, cohabitation, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, child abuse, or use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to God (Matt. 15:18-20; 1 Cor. 6:9-10).
