As an inter-denominational school, OCA seeks to unify believers by emphasizing the basic Biblical truths of salvation. We recognize the Bible as God’s complete revelation and accept no extra-Biblical teaching as its equal. We interpret the Scriptures literally in a normative, grammatical sense. OCA accepts students from families that agree with the basic Biblical truths for salvation presented in this Statement of Faith, although they may differ on other points. However, those that serve the Lord as board members, faculty and staff at OCA must be in total agreement with this Statement of Faith. If they change their views, they are expected to terminate their ministry at OCA. OCA seeks to maintain unity by emphasizing salvation by the grace of God through Jesus Christ rather than opposing differences.
