PRIVATE RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATION DISCLOSURE As a private Christian school, LRCA is a “religious organization.” While commerce laws prohibiting arbitrary discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age and disability apply generally to religious organizations, a religious organization is allowed to discriminate on the basis of its religious beliefs. This exception is rooted in the constitutional right to free exercise of religion. As a private school, LRCA considers academic performance to be criteria relevant to decisions regarding student admission and retention. As a religious organization, LRCA will neither commence nor continue admission, enrollment or employment if it is believed by LRCA that such will cause confusion about, conflict with, or compromise of the school’s mission to provide a distinctly Christian education from a Christ-centered worldview. In that regard, LRCA conforms to the orthodox teachings of the historical Christian Church as set forth in the sixty-six books of the Holy Bible, all of which we believe to be our infallible and authoritative rule of faith and practice. Any decision to discriminate on the basis of religious belief will be made by the Head of School, subject to review by the Board of Trust. This policy applies to and is incorporated into all LRCA affairs, including all LRCA contracts, programs, activities, facilities, publications, and events.


Expectations for LRCA Community Representatives Community representatives (LRCA trustees, the head-of-school, school employees and recruited volunteers) work separately and together in response to a calling from God to advance and accomplish the LRCA mission to serve families, churches and the community by providing a PK-12th grade education, characterized by excellence in the pursuit of truth from a Christ-centered worldview. As such, LRCA Christian community representatives are persons responsible for defining, cultivating, leading and/or representing our LRCA Christian community, all as an expression and exercise of our agreed Christian community beliefs. Having a common mission, each LRCA representative is an integral part of the LRCA Christian community and LRCA expects each representative to comply with the following fundamental obligations:

Christian Beliefs. Each LRCA community representative shall affirm agreement with the beliefs of the LRCA Christian community as expressed in this LRCA Christian Community Statement and the LRCA Doctrinal Statement, the LRCA Mission Statement, the LRCA Core Values Statement, the LRCA Educational Philosophy Statement, and the policies or statements adopted by or approved by the LRCA Board of Trust. These documents can be found under the Beliefs section of the LRCA website. LRCA community representatives shall not subscribe to or promote any religious beliefs inconsistent with such beliefs. Each community representative must affirm that his or her calling to serve in the LRCA Christian community requires him or her to respect such beliefs and to abide by LRCA Christian community standards regarding the exercise or expression of such beliefs. "How can two walk together unless they be agreed?" Amos 3:3.

Christian Conduct. Each LRCA community representative shall at all times (during working and non-working hours) model the beliefs of the LRCA Christian community as expressed in this LRCA Christian Community Statement and the LRCA Doctrinal Statement, the LRCA Mission Statement, the LRCA Core Values Statement, the LRCA Educational Philosophy Statement, and the policies or statements adopted by or approved by the LRCA Board of Trust.

Distinctly Christian Activities. Each representative shall be ready, willing and able to lead or contribute to distinctly Christian activities of the LRCA Christian community such as devotional worship or prayer services.


DOCTRINAL STATEMENT

Please carefully read our Doctrinal Statement and indicate below your degree of support.

A. We believe that the Bible, consisting of 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, verbally inspired, free from error in doctrine, fact and ethic, and inerrant in the original writings, is the Word of God and the only infallible and authoritative rule of faith and practice.

B. We believe in the Holy Trinity, one God eternally existent in the three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – the same in substance, equal in power and glory.

C. We believe in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of God the Father, and His personal physical return in power and glory.

D. We believe that God created man in His own image but that through sin, man brought upon himself and his posterity not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; that all human beings by physical birth possess a sinful nature.

E. We believe that the salvation of lost and sinful man is a free gift of God’s grace apart from works, based solely upon Christ’s vicarious and atoning death, effected by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit, and received by trusting in Christ’s finished work on the cross, and that this salvation is eternally secured to all believers.

F. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by Whose indwelling upon salvation the Christian is enabled to live a godly life; that it is incumbent upon every believer to walk worthy of his calling – to walk after the Spirit and not after the flesh.

G. We believe in the resurrection of the body of both the saved and the lost – they that are saved to the resurrection of life everlasting and they that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation.

H. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. I fully support the Christian Community Statement and the Doctrinal Statement as written without reservations

I support the Christian Community Statement and/or the Doctrinal Statement except for the area(s) listed and explained below. The exceptions represent either disagreements or items for which I have not yet formed an opinion or conviction.
