Statement of Faith
We believe, uphold and teach the fundamental truths of Christianity contained in Holy Scriptures, including
- The divine inspiration and infallibility of Holy Scripture as originally given, and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
- The sovereignty of God, who despite the effects of sin on the world, retains authority over all creation, sustaining and governing all things by His will.
- The unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in the Godhead.
- The universal sinfulness and guilt of human nature since the Fall, rendering man subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
- The incarnation of Jesus, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
- Redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through the sacrificial and atoning death of Jesus Christ as our representative and substitute.
- The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
- The necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit to make the death of Christ effective in the individual sinner, granting him repentance towards God and faith in Jesus Christ.
- The indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the believer.
- The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ
We hold to the traditional biblical view of the intention and purpose of human sexuality, expressed in the context of marriage is between a man and a woman, committed for life, to the exclusion of all others.
It is expected that all staff and association members are able to uphold the Statement of Faith in both their public and private life and are committed to the body of Christian believers through membership of a local church or Christian community.
However, as an open enrolment school, we recognise that our student and parent community includes a variety of faith and lifestyle beliefs. All are welcome in our school. Nevertheless, it is important to note, when joining the school community, that families understand the teaching of the school. We recognise the right of parents and students to hold different positions on lifestyle or faith as private matters.
