Philosophy of Education
Whitefield Christian Schools is dedicated to quality Christian education and building outstanding character traits in the lives of its students. Whitefield has established a high standard of conduct to help achieve the goal of developing a disciplined lifestyle and academic excellence.
All teachers and staff members are qualified academically, spiritually, and morally and are dedicated to training young people in the necessary skills for life in a God-honouring atmosphere. Every staff member has personally received the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour and is devoted to leading each student in the ways of the Lord.
"All thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children" (Isaiah 54:13).
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Timothy 3:16).
Statement of Faith
A. We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the verbally inspired Word of God, as inerrant in the original writings, and as the absolute authority in faith and practice.
B. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Trinity).
C. We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.
D. We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature.
E. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood by which we are brought into real spiritual unity in Christ.
F. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and in His present life, there for us as High Priest and Advocate.
G. We believe in “that blessed hope” – the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
H. We believe that all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
I. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
J. We believe in the necessity of maintaining, according to the Word of God, purity of doctrine and life.
“Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).
At Whitefield, our students are encouraged to put God first in all that they do. Realizing that children of Christian parents have not necessarily come to personal salvation in Christ themselves, it is our desire to lead them gently to that personal knowledge and mentor them as they grow in grace. All courses at Whitefield are taught from a Christian Worldview and God is at the centre of everything we teach.
