The Purpose of Brush Creek Academy
The central purpose of Brush Creek Academy Christian boarding school for struggling boys, part of the Teen Challenge of Oklahoma program, is to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and restore families through His grace, introducing the teenagers and families that come to us to the love of Jesus Christ, and helping them grow in their faith. To this end, Teen Challenge affirms the following statements of our faith.
Brush Creek Academy Statement of Faith
We Believe…The Bible is the inspired and only infallible authoritative written Word of God. We Believe…There is one true God revealed in the three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We Believe…In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule a thousand years. We Believe…The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the blood of Christ. We Believe…regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential for personal salvation. We Believe…in water baptism by immersion. We Believe…the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing in answer to believing in prayer. We Believe…that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are still in operation today. We Believe… in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit whose indwelling the Christian enables them to live a holy life. We Believe…Teen Challenge of Oklahoma, as a para-church organization, is responsible to save the lost, make disciples, and send them out.
