Vision and Statement of Faith

VISION:

The school is a ministry of the Church on the Bluff and its purpose is to educate, train and equip learners for life in a Christ-centered, Bible-based environment.

MISSION STATEMENT:

The School will provide Christian-based education from grade R to grade 12, to children in the Bluff area and surrounds to meet the requirement of the South African Core Curriculum;

The School will endeavour to equip each child with sound Biblically-based educational and life skills, as well as Godly wisdom, insight and character, in order to become mature, stable and productive members of society;

The school will serve as a Christian institution to assist, Christian parents to “train up a child in the way he should go” (Proverbs 22:6) in obedience to the commandments of God, according to the Scriptures in the Word of God;

The School will endeavor to assist parents of the school to define each child’s mission in Jesus Christ. This process is based on the belief that each and every child has a unique calling in God (Ephesians 1:4-5);

The School will function as a Christian ministry and on a not for profit basis;

STATEMENT OF FAITH

The School stands for and believes in the following:

1.  The Divine inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, the Bible;

2.  One God, existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit;

3. The Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy spirit, born of the virgin Mary, crucified, dead, buried, raised from the dead, taken up into heaven, now appearing at the right hand of the Father, as the Intercessor;

4.  The devil or Satan, as a real personality, originally a created angelic being who as a result of his transgression was cast down from the presence of God and is now the enemy of God, man and every true believer;

5.  Sin, the fall of mankind, and his lost estate by nature;

6.  Repentance toward God;

7.  Regeneration, or the new birth, and the baptism of the believer in water, and by the Holy Spirit into the body of Christ;

8.  Reconciliation of man to God;

9.  Redemption through the Blood of Christ;

10.  Justification by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ;

11.  Sanctification and Holiness;

12.  The indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the believer;

13.  The nine fold fruit of the Holy Spirit in the life of every Believer;

14.  Scriptural healing of the body by Divine Power;

15.  The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ;

16.  The eternal punishment of the wicked.
