NCSAA Worldview:

NCSAA is committed to working in the arena of athletics to impact schools, communities, youth, and culture with the love of Jesus Christ -- and, in all of this, to bring honor and glory to God. This purpose is rooted in our reliance upon God's mercy, our desire for relationship with Him, and longing for His Kingdom which He has established forever. His everlasting mercy and desire for relationship with us can be seen throughout history, recorded in His inspired and infallible Word (the Bible) and etched into the truth and design of His creation, through the realities of:  

CREATION

 
God created every detail of our world perfectly. He created man, as part of this perfect creation, in His own image -- and gave man the task of caring for this creation. He provided relationship -- companionship -- as one of the essential parts of His perfect creation. God's design for life reveals His intent for humans to need and cherish relationship; and in His creation of man (who bears His image), we can recognize God's own desire for relationship.  

FALL

 
Through Adam and Eve's disobedience, sin entered the world; that sin stained every aspect of creation and separated man from the love of God. Every human being throughout all of history has been corrupted by the reality of that original sin. Our thoughts and desires, relationships, and every aspect of our lives and activity have been distorted; and we are completely unable to avoid or correct this brokenness in our own selves and lives.  

REDEMPTION

 
God's Love is greater than our defects, and His power is not bound by the effects of sin. Sending His own perfect Son to dwell on earth and to die as an atoning sacrifice for our sin, God offers to creation freedom from condemnation. As part of this restoration of creation to Himself, God grants forgiveness, salvation, and the promise of eternal life to everyone who places his faith in Jesus Christ. The work of redemption is accomplished solely through God's grace, and He calls His redeemed people to be witnesses to and bearers of that same grace.

God's intent for creation, the effects of the man's fall to sin, and the implications of God's grace and redemption extend to all of creation -- to all parts of our lives. Athletic giftedness and activity is no exception; in a culture that loves, prizes, and often worships sport, we are reminded of our task of caring for creation. We do not turn our backs on athletics that is marred by sin; we carry Christ's redeeming purpose into the midst of the clamor. Our mission, then, is to work in the midst of communities which still bear the effects of sin -- proclaiming the truth of God's grace and His desire to replace brokenness with Love, His insistence that we turn away from worthless lusts and ambitions in order to realize His purpose and desire to claim our hearts, and His pleasure in our use of gifts and talents to honor the name of the God who gave them.  

We believe…

. . . the Bible to be the inspired, only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God.
. . . there is one God, eternally existent in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
. . . in the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of God, and His personal return in power and glory.
. . . in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature; and that we are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ, so that by God’s grace we are saved.
. . . in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost—the saved to the resurrection of life, and the lost to the resurrection of condemnation.
. . . in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
. . . in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
