Purpose and Doctrinal Statement

Christian Home Educators Fellowship (CHEF) was prayerfully established in order to provide the fellowship, encouragement, and support needed for a limited number of Christian home schooling parents to successfully teach and minister to their children, and for the opportunity to allow our children to build godly relationships in an environment where Christian standards and values are shared by all.

Being so prayerfully established; we endeavor to continue the group by God’s guidance through prayer, Bible-study, and the Holy Spirit.

We Believe

The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God and constitutes His completed and final revelation to man. The Bible, in its original autograph, is without error in whole and in part, including theological concepts as well as geographical and historical details.
(2 Tim. 3:16-17, Rev. 22:18-19)

(John 7:16, 1 Cor. 15:6, 1 Cor. 15:20, Matt. 20:28, 1 John 1:2)

Salvation is offered as a gift, free to the sinner. This gift must be responded to in individual faith, not trusting in any personal works whatsoever, but in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ alone.
(Eph. 2:8-9, John 3:16, John 5:24)

God forbids pagan practices such as witchcraft, fortune telling, casting spells, consulting with familiar spirits, interpreting omens, and contacting the dead.
