This year Kuyper Christian School celebrates 40 years! Starting a new school year is always a good time to reflect on our Creedal Statement, and after 40 years, it’s timely to evaluate how we are going. Do we still live the hopes and the story of our pioneers 40 years ago? Most importantly, are we living a story that is true to our Biblical worldview and beliefs? The Creedal Statement was designed to keep us focused on the important issues. It is a foundation that was laid 40 years ago by parents like you and me who want their children to grow up knowing Jesus in every aspect of life and learning in His world.
Christ is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He liberates and renews us. He also sends His Holy Spirit to lead us into truth. We gladly submit to the Bible as our guide for all of life. And because of these things, we humbly, yet confidently engage in education so that Jesus Christ will be glorified in everything.Creedal Statement, Kuyper Christian School
That’s right, everything; every square inch! I love this statement in our Creed. It pronounces Christ King of Kings and Lord of all. It reminds us of His saving work in renewing, restoring and guiding us with spiritual healing and leading. I speak for more than myself, I am sure, when I say these things. I speak for all Staff, Board members and many Parents at Kuyper who gladly seek to submit to the authority of the Bible as our lifelong guide. In a season filled with uncertainly and anxiety, the Bible is a time-honoured book, the word of God, that can be trusted to speak words of life into a world that longs for hope and meaning.
During this year, may we come with thankfulness to God for what He has done in the preceding 40 years, and pray with confidence for what He will do in the future. I am convinced that God’s faithfulness will be ongoing in this community.
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.Lamentations 3:22-23
