HOW CCHE CAME TO BE
In the summer of 1988, a group of seven homeschool mothers met because they felt a common need to build a support network for homeschooling families. Homeschooling was just beginning to take root. Through many hours of effort and community contact, Clark County Home Educators was formed. CCHE has a board of directors who are volunteer homeschooling parents and membership families.
CCHE is celebrating 35 years of serving the home schooling community!
CCHE's mission is to assist parents in making an informed choice about homeschooling, facilitate community awareness of homeschooling, and to offer annual events, support, and resources to all who are homeschooling. CCHE desires to glorify God in all that we do, promoting freedom for all homeschoolers.
CCHE membership is open to all interested persons in sympathy with the purpose of CCHE. This includes parents, grandparents, teachers, et cetera and is not limited to those with school age children. Members must reside in Clark, Cowlitz, Skamania counties in Washington state.
CCHE is a Christian organization, however members and participants are not required to agree with the Statement of Faith.
Statement of Faith
We believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God, without error in its original autograph, and is His completed and final revelation to man (II Timothy 3:16) (2 Peter 1:21).
We believe that God has existed from all eternity in the three persons of the Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19, John 1:1-4, John 10:30, 1 Cor. 12:4-6).
We believe that Jesus Christ, God in human flesh and without sin, came to pay the penalty for man's sins through His death on the cross and resurrection (I Corinthians 15:3-4).
We believe that salvation is offered to all as a free gift through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ alone, not through any personal works, as each person responds through faith to receive Jesus Christ as their personal Savior (John 1:12, John 3:16-17, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:8-9, Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-10).
