Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God and the final authority in faith and life. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21).
  • We believe 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 deity of Christ (John 10:33), His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35), His sinless life Hebrews 4:15, 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11), His vicarious and atoning death (1st Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9), His resurrection ( John 11:25, 1st Corinthians 15:4), His ascension to the right hand of God (Mark 16:19), and 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 sinfulness of human nature and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace and through faith alone are we saved (John 3:16–19, 5:24; Romans 3:23, 5:8–9; Ephesians 2:8–10; Titus 3:5).
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of condemnation (John 5:28–29).
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 12:12–13, Galatians 3:26–28).
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13–14; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:30, 5:18).

Lifestyle of Volunteers

Our mission at CRICS is to “serve the servant by providing quality, innovative, family-oriented English Christian Education.” In order to fulfill our mission, all expatriates accepted for service with CRICS must be professing Christians and are expected to be Christian role-models, maintaining a lifestyle based on Biblical standards of conduct. 

We cannot fully define all Biblical standards of conduct here, but Romans 12:9-21 gives some clarity about the things we expect to see exhibited and developing in those who are expatriate servants at CRICS. We expect that a Christian role model hates evil and clings to what is good, regards each person with love and respect, is diligent and enthusiastic in service to the Lord, rejoices in hope, is patient in affliction, prays steadfastly, shares with those in need, attempts to live in peace and harmony with everyone, does what is right and honorable, avoids pride and revenge, and is not overcome by evil but overcomes evil with good. 

A lifestyle not aligned with Biblical standards of conduct is grounds for dismissal because it violates the occupational qualification for volunteers to be Christian role models and hinders CRICS from fulfilling its mission. Again, we cannot define every instance of sin or misconduct ahead of time, but we reserve the right to make institutional decisions (including hiring, placement, and retention) based on lifestyle decisions and behaviors that may be dishonoring to God or our community or may hinder our mission as a Christian school.
