Christ was born of the virgin Mary through the power of the Holy
Spirit. He was the Divine and eternal Son of God. He wrought miracles,
healing the sick, casting out demons, raising the dead. He died
as the victorious atoning Savior of the world and was buried. He
arose again from the dead. The tomb was emptied of its contents.
In His risen body He appeared many times to His disciples. He ascended
to the right hand of the Father. He will come again in person, the
same Jesus who ascended from the Mount of Olives. We believe that
adherence to the above truths and facts is a necessary condition
of service for teachers in our Baptist schools.
