One of the most common words used to describe Whitefield is the word “community.” Whether people have been a part of Whitefield for a long time or have just been introduced to the community when stepping onto campus, they often notice a sense of something unique and attractive in how people relate to one another. At Whitefield, we believe that we enjoy such a strong sense of community because it is built on the truth and love of Jesus Christ. Since the founding of the school in 1997, all board members, faculty, staff, and families commit to the following Statement of Faith in Christ:
I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I believe the essence of the gospel consists mainly of its doctrine of man’s sinful condition and need of salvation, the revelation of God’s grace in Christ, and the necessity of personal salvation through faith in Christ. I affirm that, as originally written in the books of the Old and New Testaments, the Bible is the complete, inspired and infallible Word of God. I affirm all of the statements of faith set forth in the Apostles’ Creed.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried;
He descended into hell.
The third day He arose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit; the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting.
