/ BASIS OF EXISTENCE
Houma Christian School is dedicated to the fullest possible development of each student committed to its care by striving to provide opportunities whereby the student can develop their individual potential. Houma Christian School aspires to help each student establish a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, cultivate loyalty to democratic principles, develop a well-integrated personality that is spiritually alert, morally sound, emotionally and intellectually mature.
Houma Christian School was founded by Pastor Rene Monette. Pastor Monette had a desire to offer a Christian education to the people of Houma, Louisiana. After noticing a school sign in Texas, Pastor Monette mentioned to his wife Vicki that if he ever opened a school he would name it Houma Christian School. From there God placed a desire on Pastor Monette's heart. Houma Christian School was founded in 1984.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infalliable, authoritative, inerrant Word of God. John 10:30, 2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30
We believe in the diety of our Lord Jesus Christ (John 10:33), in His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14), His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, 7:26), in His miracles (John 2:11), in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7), in His bodily resurrection (John 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:4), in His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:9), and in His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelations 19:11).
We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation. Because of the exceeding sinfuness of human nature, man is justified on the single ground of faith the shed blood of Christ and that only by God's grace and through faith are we saved. John 3:16-21, 5:24, Romans 3:23, 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is able to live a Godly life, that the ministry and indwelling of the Holy Spirit is available for every believer, and is not a prerequisite to salvation. John 14:16, Acts 1:5, 8, 2:2-4, 12:18
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and that they are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. John 5:28-29
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, no matter to which Bible-believing domination a person belongs, ever-seeking, together, to "become more and more in every way like Christ who is the head of His body, the church." Ephesians 4:16
