Christian Homeschool Advocacy, Resources, Inspiration & Support

What We Believe ~ Statement of Faith

CHARIS is a Christian home education support group with the following purposes:

The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God and constitutes completed and final revelation. The Bible, in its original autograph, is without error in whole and in part: including theological concepts as well as geographical and historical details.


God has existed from all eternity in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ was God in human flesh being fully God and fully man except without sin.

All men are in violation of God's righteous requirements and His Holy Character both by nature and act; and are therefore under His wrath and just condemnation. The central purpose of the coming of Jesus Christ was to pay the penalty for man's sin through His substitutionary death on the cross - the successful accomplishment of which was attested to by His subsequent visible, bodily resurrection.

Salvation is offered as a free gift; free to the sinner. This gift must be responded to in individual faith, not trusting in any personal works whatsoever, but the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ alone.

•To provide support to Christian parents who are or will be teaching their children at home.
•To provide information on our present legal rights and any relevant new legislation.

•To provide opportunities for our children to interact with others who are being taught at home, through planned educational and recreational activities.

We are a fellowship of homeschooling families, and we are affiliated with Illinois Christian Home Educators and ascribe to their general evangelical statement of faith.

There are many membership benefits, and we welcome visitors to attend our open events (see events page) held at the Village Bible Church, 847 Rt 47, Sugar Grove and at New Song Community Church, 2858 Hafenrichter Rd, Aurora. 

CHARIS Members also enjoy a multi-site parent-led co-op that meets September - May and offers academic enrichment opportunities for Pre-K through 12th grade.
