What We Believe

Purpose: The purpose and object of the society is to maintain a school for the daily instruction of the children of the members and directed towards the end that these children may be well prepared to serve the Lord competently and responsibly in every area of life and to carry out such other activities as are incidental or conducive to such objects.  Basis:(a) The basis of the Society is the infallible Word of God of which the educational relevance is summarized and reflected in the following Foundational Beliefs and Educational Principles – which the members believe are true to the Word of God in harmony with the Confessions of the Reformation.

  1. Bible: We believe that the Bible is God’s written Word through which He reveals Himself, renews our understanding of God, of ourselves, of our fellow man and of the world; directs us in all relationships and activities and therefore guides His people also in the education of their children.
  2. God: We believe in one triune eternal God, in whom are three distinct persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This triune God created, sustains and governs the world for His glory and its well being.
  3. Jesus Christ: We believe that the Christ of the Scriptures, truly God and truly human, has reconciled the world to God and redeems our life in its entirety. Since “He is before all things and in Him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:17-20), we honour His supremacy in the education of our children.
  4. Holy Spirit: We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Holy Trinity, co-eternal with the Father and the Son, who regenerates, sanctifies, comforts and guides in the way of truth and obedience. He redirects our understanding rightly to know God, ourselves and the world.
