About Us

Operation Rebirth is a Christian boarding school and family ministry, committed to providing a Christ-centered academic program for young boys, while focusing on strengthening and restoring family relationships through the application of God's Word. Operation Rebirth is incorporated under a board of seven evangellically-based directors, and is aimed at assisting boys up to eighteen years of age who are having problems adjusting to school, home and community life.


Statement of Faith

We believe in the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired by God, and inerrant in the original writings, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and in the case of those who reach moral responsibiltiy, become sinners in thought, word and deed.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.

We believe in the resurrection of the crucufied body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and in His present life there for us, as our Priest and Advocate.

We believe in "that blessed hope", the personal, premillennial and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
