What we believe

Christian Home Educators Summit of Arkansas statement of faith is subservient to the Scriptures. We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is inerrant and the standard for faith and practice (2 Tim. 3:16). We believe Jesus Christ is the virgin born son of God and he is coming again (Matt. 1:24, Gal. 4:4, 1 Thess. 4:13-18). We believe that Jesus is the Christ promised in Scriptures; the Son of God; Fully God; Full Man.

Furthermore, we believe Salvation is by grace through faith in the redeeming death of Jesus on the cross (Eph. 2:8-9)

Additionally, we believe the earth was created by God in 6 literal days (ex.20:8-11). Discipleship in the home is essential as well as mandated in the Scriptures (Duet 6:7). We believe that this mandate can be reflected through home education.
