Statement Of Faith

We will unapologetically ascribe to these beliefs in our classes and chapel and in discipline and character building at HSU. We will uphold these truths within our co-op and seek to grow in a deeper understanding of Christ in all we do and say.

  • We believe the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of humankind and the Divine and final authority for Christian faith and life.
  • We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross, a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.
  • We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and, during this age, to convict men, regenerate the believing sinner, and indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service.
  • We believe that man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin, thereby incurring not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is eternal separation from God.
  • We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and, thus become children of God.
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord; of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
