I also acknowledge that I have received a copy of the TSEC Statement of Faith. I recognize that I do not have to participate in the faith-based components of TSEC programming. I agree to not teach or speak against the TSEC Statement of Faith in my capacity as a volunteer.

Our Statement of Faith:
The Third Street Education Center is a faith-based/Christ-centered, non-profit organization. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, and authoritative word of God. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the sanctity and dignity of all human life. We believe the God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female, and that these two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. We believe that God created marriage to be exclusively the union of one man and one woman, and that intimate sexual activity is to occur exclusively within that union.
The Third Street Education Center’s Governing Board of Directors unanimously affirmed this statement of faith on the 12th Day of September, 2016.
Background Consent *
I agree to complete a criminal background check online at a cost of $10. Furthermore, I authorize Third Street Education Center to inquire about my previous/present volunteer and work experience and to contact the named references.
I understand that if I am accepted as a volunteer, any false statements, omissions, other misrepresentations, or negative feedback from references may result in my disqualification and/or immediate dismissal.
All individuals who will be working directly with children OR who will be serving on the premises while children are involved in programming are REQUIRED to submit to a background check to be conducted by a designated Third Street Education Center staff member. If you have had a background check within 6 months prior to completing this application, then you may waive this requirement by submitting that information.
Third Street Education Center reserves this right to disqualify any person from volunteering whose background check returns information which we believe would cause an individual to be a detriment to the safety and success of Third Street Education Center.
