"The Bible in public schools: Reaching children, Touching Families...Transforming Nations"
statement of faith
1. The Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God, the only infallible rule
of faith and practice.
2. There is one God, eternal and self-existing in three persons (Father, Son
and Holy Spirit) who are to be equally loved, honored, and adored.
3. All mankind participated in Adam's fall from his original sinless state and
is thus lost in sin and totally helpless.
4. Jesus Christ was borne of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, was
crucified and buried. He descended into Hell and after three days arose
physically from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits on the right
hand of God the Father.
5. Salvation for lost sinners is available by God's grace alone, by faith
alone in Christ alone. Through the atoning death and resurrection of
Jesus Christ, those sinners who believe in Christ as Savior and put
their trust in Him alone for salvation, are born again, and will persevere
to the end.
6. Justification is by faith and through it the undeserving sinner is clothed
with the righteousness of Christ.
7. The goal of God's salvation in the life of the Christian is holiness, good
works, and service for the glory of God.

God and the unbeliever's soul is eternally separated from God unto
9.Jesus Christ will return to earth, visibly and bodily, at a time when He is
10.The Gospel of God's salvation in Jesus Christ must be published to the
entire world as a witness before Jesus Christ returns.
what we believe
The Kindness Foundation ("Kindness") is a non-political, non-sectarian Christian education society and does not promote any church or state-church. Kindness supports and promotes the orthodox teaching of the Bible in the public education systems of the world as the basis for cultural education and moral values and letting the Bible speak for itself.
The Bible is the oldest, the most printed, and the most read document in human history. There are more copies of this ancient document in the archeological record than any other document in human history - thus attesting to its authenticity. The teachings of the Bible have stood all objective tests of archaeology, history and natural science. All of its many historic claims as to names, dates, locations and nations, etc. have proven to be factual - thus attesting to its archeological and historical accuracy. All known natural science agrees with its depiction of natural processes scientifically observable in nature - thus attesting to its scientific accuracy.
As the oldest comprehensive document in human history, the Bible sets forth the origins of man, the origin of standards for human behavior, the origin and function of government, family, and church and man's relationship with his creator as set forth in the person, work, and teaching of Jesus Christ. Thus, the Bible demands the careful reading, study, understanding and consideration of every person.
Kindness observes that all effective education has a defined foundational value system. However, all value systems are not equal. The Bible defines good and evil, right and wrong, accountability (consequences and rewards) and establishes moral absolutes for the good of mankind and the sustenance of civilization.
Kindness further observes that cultures based on or open to the teachings of the Bible have demonstrable benefits over cultures that have excluded it. These qualities of life include stronger economies for their people, representative government, the rule of law, protection of private property, higher literacy rates, judicial systems with a high view of justice and equity, religious freedom and respect and value for all human life, including women, children, the elderly and the poor.
Therefore, Kindness proposes that public educators and elected officials support the adoption of the Bible as the basis for cultural education and moral values; that these values be taught in public schools; and that encouragement be given to the individual ownership, reading, and study of the Bible.
