Spiritual Emphasis

Heartlight Boarding School does not “force-feed” the gospel or spirituality to the residents. However, Bible studies are offered which most students attend. Students also attend a local Bible-believing church each week with their assigned staff person and each of our staff and counselors talk about spiritual things as they interact with the teens throughout the week.

All counseling is from a Biblical Counseling Model, and program events throughout the week provide opportunities to give scriptural answers to the questions asked by the residents. Without addressing the spiritual, we do not believe true healing can occur. That’s why faith plays such an important role in the success of our program and the turnaround of teenagers in our care.

Our Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, that they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus.
