The Maryland Association of Christian Home Educators is a 501(c)3 private non-profit association of Christian Home Education Organizations and select individual families. Its purpose is to educate, encourage, and support its members to fulfill their mission to home educate children from a Christian perspective. The state association serves the state home-educating families through legislative oversight, leadership training and statewide events. Its members ascribe to the following statement of faith:

We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, written Word of God and constitutes His completed and final revelation to man. It is the sole rule of faith for the believer. 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 come 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 demonstrate God's all holy character that he alone is just and the one who justifies. Jesus Christ alone paid 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 God's free gift to the sinner. By God's grace alone, this gift must be responded to by individual faith alone, not trusting in any personal works whatsoever, but in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ alone.

I / we attest that our group is truly Christian in nature and by majority of membership, upholding the historic tenets of the Christian faith, and supporting home education from a Christian perspective. As a group leader, I will see that members of my group receive any relevant information and state-wide event registration details in a timely manner.
