Heart of Wisdom is nondenominational, functioning entirely apart from any denominational agenda. The main objective and focus of our unit studies is on students and parents learning God’s Word and establishing a relationship with Him.
Heart of Wisdom Statement of Faith
We believe the Scriptures to be the verbally inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the only absolute authority for genuine faith and practice.
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, who eternally rules His universe and is bringing all things to their proper end according to His omniscient plan.
We believe in the Triune God, Father, Son and Spirit, and we believe that this Triune God created, reconciled and embraced the world in Jesus Christ, as it was eternally purposed.
We believe that mankind was created in the image of God, after His likeness, and therefore has intrinsic worth. We believe that, because our first parents rebelled against God in the Garden of Eden, they lost their innocence and both they and their descendants became separated from God, suffer physical and spiritual death, and that all born of the seed of man are sinners by nature and practice. We believe that man has no possible means of reconciling himself to God by any works.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah, is true God and true man, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died on the cross as a perfect sacrifice for our sins and He rose bodily from the dead, later ascending triumphantly into Heaven where He intercedes for us at the right hand of God the Father.
We believe that the primary ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, our Messiah. To accomplish this, He convicts men, regenerates those He intends to save, and indwells, guides, instructs and empowers believers for godly living and service in Messiah.
We believe that man, originally created perfect in God’s image, fell into sin in Adam, and consequently we are all subject to both sin and death if left to our own dispositions and designs.
We believe salvation is by grace (mercy) through Christ alone. God’s grace is a gift to us. No one can earn salvation. If we choose to accept God’s grace we should be obedient to Hin by walking in obedience to the guidelines of His Word.
We believe in the importance of studying the Jewish culture in Bible times. We study a Hebrew book-written by Hebrews; we serve a Hebrew Lord-who had Hebrew disciples; we desire to follow the first century church-which was first predominately Hebrew; and through Christ, we are grafted into a Hebrew family! It makes sense to study the Hebrew culture. To fully comprehend our Christian faith, we should know about this fascinating heritage. (Gal. 3:29). Read more here.
We believe in the literal six-day Creation. We deny that any form of macroevolution was involved in the Creation process or thereafter.
We believe we should uphold the commandments of God if we love Christ with all our heart (John 14:15; Romans 3:31, 7:22; Galatians 3:21-22; I John 5:1-3) and teach others to do so (Matthew 5:17-19, Revelation 22:13-14).
We believe God gave us His law (instruction) to give us directions for an abundant life here on earth. We believe rhe commandments of God can be summed up in two: Love God and love others.
We believe that God’s people comprise all persons who exercise saving faith in Christ, and who thus become spiritually baptized into Messiah’s Body. Each believer is gifted at salvation for a responsible role in the Body of Messiah.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; John 1:1-2, 14-18; John 10:30; John 14:16-17, 26; John 16:7-15).
We believe that Messiah will return with power and glory to bring earthly history to its close according to His wise plan.
We believe the biblical holidays are God’s feasts, and are a shadow of things to come, revealing the redemptive plan of God through Jesus Christ as Messiah (Leviticus 23:2,4, Colossians 2:16-17).
