Statement of Faith

Preamble
At McDougle Technical Institute Preparatory (MTI Prep), we are committed to providing a transformative educational experience, guided by our faith in Jesus Christ and our dedication to Christian principles. Our mission is to empower students to achieve their academic goals, whether that be earning a high school diploma or GED, or improving post-graduation academic standing for college admissions and career readiness. In all our endeavors, we seek to create an environment that reflects the love of Christ and fosters spiritual, intellectual, and personal growth.

The Scripture
We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God, serving as the foundation for all truth and the guide for our lives and teachings. It shapes our educational philosophy, informing our curriculum, and guiding our interactions within our community.

God
We affirm the existence of one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This triune God is the creator of all things, sovereign over all life, and the ultimate source of knowledge and wisdom.

Jesus Christ
We confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, whose life, death, and resurrection provide the only basis for our salvation and the reconciliation of humanity with God. His example of love, service, and sacrifice is the model for our conduct and the inspiration for our mission.

The Holy Spirit
We recognize the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of believers, guiding, empowering, and imparting gifts for personal growth and service to the community. The Spirit plays a crucial role in our educational journey, enlightening students’ minds and hearts as they seek to learn and grow.

Humanity
We acknowledge that all people are created in the image of God, endowed with value and dignity. Our educational programs are designed to recognize and develop each student’s unique potential, encouraging them to pursue excellence in all aspects of life.

Salvation
We hold that salvation is a gift of God’s grace, received through faith in Jesus Christ. This belief motivates our commitment to an education that not only informs the mind but also transforms the heart.

The Christian Life
We advocate for a life that reflects the teachings of Jesus Christ, characterized by love, humility, and service to others. Our community is committed to living out these values in a way that encourages students to grow spiritually and morally.

The Church
We believe in the importance of the Church, the body of Christ, as a community for worship, fellowship, service, and mission. We encourage our students and staff to be active members of their local congregations, contributing to the Church’s work in the world.

Conclusion
At MTI Prep, our faith in Jesus Christ is the cornerstone of our educational mission. We are dedicated to nurturing a learning environment that honors God and serves our students, empowering them to achieve their educational goals and to live lives of purpose and service. We invite all members of our community to join us in this mission, united by our common faith and commitment to the transformative power of education.
