Our Guiding Principles & Values

The families and students of Temple Baptist Academy, along with administrators, faculty, and staff,agree to uphold the following Bible-based values that guide the choices we make and the manner in which we live:

1. We live in submission to the Word of God. Recognizing that God’s Word has all authority, we are committed to believe and obey the Scriptures. (II Timothy 3:16-17; I Thessalonians 2:13)

2. Our goal is Christ. Believing that the Lord Jesus Christ is to have preeminence in all things, we worship Him alone. Pleasing Him is our highest motive. Our desire is to be true followers of Christ. (Philippians 3:7-11; Colossians 1:18)

3. We are separated to God. Being separated to the Lord sets us apart from the spirit and culture of the world. We seek to honor the Lord by living a life that is consecrated unto Him. (I Peter 1:15-16; I Corinthians 6:19-20)

4. We serve the Lord as members of a local church. Knowing that the Scriptures provide the doctrine and pattern for local churches to follow, we belong to a church that adheres to the New Testament pattern in faith and practice, and we advance the gospel through the ministry of our church. (Acts 2:41-42; Acts 5:42)

5. We are faithful witnesses unto Christ. Believing that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, we give the gospel message to the lost, seeking to win them to Christ and to help them become true disciples of the Lord Jesus. (Acts 1:8; Proverbs 11:30; Matthew 28:18-20)

6. We recognize the stewardship of life. Understanding that our lives belong to the Lord, we strive to be faithful stewards of all that He has given us. This includes using our time, talents, and possessions for the glory of God. (I Corinthians 4:2;Romans 14:11-12; Luke 12:15; Malachi 3:8-11)

7. We deal with others in honesty and sincerity. Realizing the importance of our testimony, we exercise integrity in our relationships and dealings with others. We seek to have Christ’s heart of love and compassion for all people. (Colossians 3:1-17; Titus 2:1-15; Romans 13:12-14)
