Truth and Freedom Home School Academy is a ministry of Truth and Freedom Ministries, Inc. in Decatur, Alabama. We believe that educating our children is the responsibility of the parents, and obtaining a Christian education is an absolute necessity in our society. The goal of Truth and Freedom Home School Academy is to provide an opportunity for parents to “train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22: 6)
Truth and Freedom Home School Academy is a ministry of Truth and Freedom Ministries, Inc. which provides administrative support and encouragement to parents, as well as providing a resource for families to educate their children at home in truth and freedom in accordance with Alabama State Law.
Statement of Faith:
We believe in the Holy Trinity. We believe that there is one and only one living and true God, our Creator and Redeemer, who reveals Himself to us as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. We believe that He came to earth as a baby, conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. We believe that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life, but He willingly gave His life on the cross of Calvary as the substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of all mankind. We believe that God raised Him from the dead on the third day, and He now sits at the right hand of God. We believe that Salvation is offered freely to all who confess their sins and by faith accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour. We believe that the Holy Spirit inspired men of old to write the scriptures, and we believe that every word in the Bible is true now and forever.
