Statement of Faith

STATEMENT OF FAITH

  • I believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God (Timothy 3:15, 2 Peter 1:21). 
  • I believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1;1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30). 
  • I believe in:      The deity of Christ (John 10:33)
  •       His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35)
  •       His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, Hebrews 7:26)
  •       His miracles (John 2:11)
  •       His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9)
  •       His resurrection (John 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:4)
  •       His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19)
  •       His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11
  • I believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature; and that men are justified on the single ground of  faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace and through faith alone we are saved.  (John 3:16-19, John 5:24, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5) 
  • I believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; that they are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:28-29) 
  • I believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Galatians 3:26-28). 
  • I believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14, 1 Corinthians 3:16, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Ephesians 4:30, 5:18). 

PRINCIPLES

  1. God as Creator and Sustainer of all things, is the centre of all true education. Christian education must be based on the person, character and ways of God as revealed through the Bible. 
  2. The development of Christ-like character in the student must take priority over other considerations in the student. 
  3. The Lordship of God is central to all disciplines of study. Each person is created in God’s image and is of inestimable value, yet tainted by the choice of sin and the consequent broken relationship with God. 
  4. The testimony of God is to be found in every culture, but every culture has been corrupted by sin. Each culture must be examined in the light of these considerations. 
  5. God is in control of the world, yet evil permeates the worldviews, attitudes and influences in the world. Each student has a personal responsibility to choose what he or she knows to be right. 
  6. The redemption of Jesus Christ is personal yet affects all areas of life. The cross of Christ is applicable to our involvement in all aspects of human life and endeavour. The Christian goal in all aspects of life is the kingdom of God. 
  7. The family is the basic building block of society and has the responsibility for the education of its children. A school, if needed, is to be a servant to and extension of the family. 
  8. The teacher is a representative of the parents, a model for students to follow and should be an active, ongoing learner, seeking to discover more about Biblical perspectives in education and committed to communication with and service to parents. 
  9. Each student is unique and is not to be evaluated by comparisons to others, yet excellence is to be pursued. 
  10. Careful scrutiny of our programme in the light of our objectives must occur in the pursuit of excellence in all areas.
