REGISTRATION AT A GLANCE

Information on Processing Membership
We on the Board want to clarify to you a couple of things about the joining process. After new and returning members pay their dues and enroll, it may take a few days to have your name added to the current member list. These membership renewals have to follow a chain of people before that happens. We on the Board are unpaid volunteers who eagerly desire to serve the group. However, in addition to that, we are busy homeschooling moms, like yourselves, who have homes to manage and minds (and mouths ;-) to feed all day. For that reason, we are not able to spend a lot of our day checking up on membership renewals. Also, since weekends are family time, you can count those as days we might not check up on membership changes. So, if a person decides to renew or join our group in hopes to join an activity that has already been posted, they may not get through the renewal process in time to participate in that activity. We also request that prior year members understand this process so we avoid any confusion with how membership renewals work and event scheduling/attendance of exclusive CHEF of GNO organized activities. Please tell any of your friends who have not renewed their membership or desire to join, that they should do so soon if they are hoping to participate in upcoming events or field trips. There is no guarantee that someone joining is going to be able to participate in an event that is being advertised that same week. We hope this will clarify the process for everyone.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
*The Bible to be the inspired, infallible, divinely preserved Word of God, the supreme and
final authority for all faith and life.
*That there is one God, eternally-existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
*In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His
vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, His bodily resurrection,
His ascension, and His imminent bodily return in power and glory.
*That man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin and is therefore lost, and only
those who put their faith in Jesus Christ alone, not trusting in any personal works
whatsoever, can be saved.
*That salvation is a free gift of God brought to the sinner by grace and received by
personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose substitutionary death on the cross paid the
penalty for man's sin.
*That the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to convict mankind: indwell, guide, instruct, and
empower the believer for godly living service.
*In the spiritual unity of believers through our common faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and
that individual doctrinal differences which may exist, outside of the aforementioned,
SHOULD NOT HINDER THE UNITY OF CHRISTIAN HOME EDUCATORS.
ARTICLE V - STATEMENT ON FAMILY AND EDUCATION
Section I: Family
*We believe that the family is the basic governmental, social, and spiritual unit created by
God. In it the child learns self-government, social relationships, and develops a
relationship to the Creator and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, according to John 3:5,
Ephesians 6:1, and Colossians 3:20. The family also provides protection from over-
extensive government and over-stimulating social involvements.
*We understand "family" to mean an unmodified male and unmodified female parent, legally married, with one or more children (Genesis 1:26-28), although we recognize the variations of a single parent,
adopted, foster, and step children (James 1:27). We reject any marriage that is not in association with biblical marriage because it is contrary to Scripture and the intentions of God in
creation (Romans 1:18-32). We reject transitory, cohabiting relationships as being equally
in violation of God's laws and incapable of providing the long-term nurture and
instruction needed by children and commanded by God (Proverbs 1:8-12; Colossians
3:21; and Ephesians 6:4).
Section II: Education
*We believe that the ultimate responsibility for the education of children belongs to parents.”
(Deut. 4:9, 6:1-5). Thus, we believe this is an inalienable right given by God, which the
State cannot create, destroy, or alter. Parents may allow another to teach cognitive
information that children need to know, but all education must be under the ultimate
control and supervision of the parents.
*We believe that all education is religious in nature
since one's view of the world and life is inevitably involved in teaching. (Proverbs
2:11-18; 3:1-2, 6:20-23, and Matthew 28:18-20).
*Every discipline of knowledge, whether
it be a subject such as mathematics, science, or history will have as its final reference
point a theistic, or in the alternative, a humanistic view or reality. There is no neutral
academic discipline. We believe that the religions of Secular Humanism and Christianity
are mutually exclusive. (Colossians 1:15-20 and 2:8-15)
