We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the verbally inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original writings, and that they are the supreme and final authority for faith and practice. We give preference to the   Authorized Version (King James) of the Bible, using it exclusively in our   classroom. (Ex. 4:10-15; II Tim. 3:16; Heb. 4:13; II Peter 1:20-21)


We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man. (Gen.1:26; Deut. 6:4; Matt. 3:16-17; II Cor. 13:14; Matt. 1:18; Luke 1:35; John 1:14)

Sinful Man

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that he sinned and thereby incurred both physical and spiritual death. (Gen. 3:15, 6: 5; Psa. 14: Rom. 3:10-23)


We believe that all things were created by God and that man is the result of a direct creative act of God and not the product of an evolutionary process from lower life forms. (Gen. 1:1-2:3; John 1:3;Heb.11:3)


      We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. We believe in the   resurrection of the body of our Lord, His ascension into heaven, and His     present life there as our High Priest and Advocate. (Rom. 3:20-24, 5:1-11; Gal. 2:16, 3:26; I John 3:2)

Return Of Christ

      We believe in the personal, pre-millennial and imminent return of the Lord and   Savior Jesus Christ. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting bliss of the saved and the everlasting conscious suffering of the lost. (II Thes. 4:13-18; Matt. 25:31-47; Psa. 96:13; Acts 17:31; Rev. 20:15)


      Bethany, as a conservative and evangelical religious institution adheres to the historical and orthodox doctrines of the Christian faith, and strives to apply that adherence appropriately in the context of the trans-denominational nature of the   student body. (Matt. 28:18-20; Mark 16:15; Acts 1:8)
