DCHSA is based upon a distinctly Christian worldview. From this worldview stems our conviction that true education cannot take place apart from the acknowledgment of the one true Creator God and the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ. While member families are not required to be Christian or sign a doctrinal statement, all members of the Board of Directors must agree with the following Statement of Faith.
Four Points Respecting The Bible, The Person Of Christ, The Atonement, And The Necessity Of Conversion
1. The Bible — We believe that God inspired every word in the original manuscripts of scripture (2 Peter 1:20–21, 2 Timothy 3:16).
2. The Person of Christ — We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ — that He was, is, and shall forever be God the Son, the Second Person of the Trinity (John 1:1, 14).
3. The Atonement — We believe that Christ’s life was perfectly sinless and that His sacrificial death on the cross provided a complete atonement for sin (1 Peter 2:21–22, 24; John 19:30).
4. The Necessity of Conversion — We believe that each person possesses a bent toward sin and must personally accept by faith the work of the Lord Jesus Christ as payment for the penalty of those sins (Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23).
