What We Believe

The Academy of the Scribe is a Holy Spirit led school. As an academy and institution for advanced learning in all areas of scribal ministry our foundation is based on the Holy Bible. We endeavor to incorporate the following tenets of the faith:

The Bible: We believe the bible to be given by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, infallible, and God’s revealed word to man as a revelation of God’s will for salvation and the supreme and final authority in faith and life.

The Godhead: We believe that scripture teaches that there is only one true and living God who has chosen to reveal Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:26, Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10,11; Matthew 3:16, 17, Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22).

God the Father: We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, hears and answers prayer, and saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ, His Son. (John 16:23-27; Galatians 4:4-6; Ephesians 1:3, 17-23)

God the Son: We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Chris was that He was supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit and was without sin, that He is the Son of God and the Son of Man, that He came to save man from condemnation of sin by offering His blood as an atonement and making it available to all who repent of their sin and exercise faith in Him (Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31, 35; John 3:16; 1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21).

God the Holy Spirit: We believe the Holy Spirit is a person and is fully God. He regenerates, baptizes into the Body of Christ, indwells every believer, guides and empowers believers, convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, allows fruit to be produced in the life of the believer, and gives gifts to all believers to be used in ministry so that the Church can function properly. (Matthew 28:19; John 3:5, 16:13; Acts 1:8, 5:3-4; 1 Corinthians 6:11,19, 12:4-13; Ephesians 3:16; 4:11-16)

Mankind & Salvation: Mankind was created male and female in the image and likeness of God. Through the original sin of Adam and Eve, mankind has fallen from God and become sinful in nature, He is totally incapable of returning to God in himself, and is lost without hope apart from the Salvation of Jesus Christ. Salvation is the gift of God through the grace and faith of Jesus Christ. There is no other Name, except that of Jesus Christ, by which men may be saved. By turning from sin to repentance and trusting in Christ and His vicarious death, man is born again into eternal life by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

Scribes Instructed: We are scribes instructed by the Holy Spirit according to Matthew 13:52 “Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.”
