Lorien Wood is a Christ-centered school teaching from a Biblical worldview, and as such, it maintains a statement of faith.  Although belief in our statement of faith is not a prerequisite for attending Lorien Wood, it is a prerequisite for the faculty and Board of Trustee members.  All Trustees and faculty of Lorien Wood affirm the historic Apostles’ Creed:

I believe in God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth.  I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.  He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell.  The third day he rose again from the dead.  He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.  From there he will come to judge the living 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.  Amen.

Additionally, they accept and affix their signatures to the following doctrinal affirmations:

  • Belief in the one eternal God, Creator and Lord of the world – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – who governs all things according to the purpose of His will.

  • The deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself as the only ransom for sinners and is the only mediator between God and mankind.

  • The necessity and efficacy of the substitutionary death of the Lord Jesus Christ for the redemption of the world.

  • The historic fact of the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.

  • The presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the work of regeneration, including conviction of sin, faith in Christ, new birth, and growth in Christian maturity.

  • The expectation of the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ, in power and ‚Ä®glory, to consummate His salvation and His judgment. 

  • The unique divine inspiration, truthfulness, and authority of both the Old and New Testament Scriptures in their entirety as the only written Word of God, without error in all that it affirms, and the firm foundation of faith and practice.
