The Statement of Faith adopted by St. Stephen’s Academy is limited to primary Christian doctrine, which is considered to be central to all Christian denominations, and which sets Christianity apart from other faiths. The following Statement of Faith is taken directly from the St. Stephen’s Academy bylaws:
We believe this statement of faith to be a summary of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, found in the Scriptures, and consistent with the confession of orthodox Christian doctrine expressed in the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms. St. Stephen’s Academy was established as a ministry of Evergreen Presbyterian Church, a congregation in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). The Evergreen Session adheres to the Westminster Standards. From its inception, St. Stephen’s has been built on a foundation which put Scripture first, but which acknowledged the Westminster Standards as a faithful summary of the Scriptures. Our curriculum reflects these commitments. While we gladly accept students and families from other evangelical traditions, from other religions, and from outside the Christian faith, we are a ministry of a confessional, Protestant church. We ask that our families understand this, and that they come here with a heart to maintain and promote who we are.
