All EMERGE teachers and students agree with this


It is our intent to provide EMERGE students with a distinctly Christian worldview. While teachers and students may hold to denominational differences, they agree with the following. We recognize that genuine Christians have differences over non-primary doctrines; when such doctrines arise, students will be referred back to their families and churches for final authority.

I believe in one 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.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Christian church,
the fellowship of believers,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
