Foundational to the existence of the SCEA and its schools is the Holy Bible and the revelationary work of the Holy Spirit. The Bible is the written revelation of God's Holiness and love and His provision of Jesus Christ, His only Son, as the only Saviour of the world. It is God's very breath; His absolute and effectual Word, sufficient and authoritative in all matters of faith and conduct. God's Word shows the nature of God; His Omnipotence, Omniscience, Omnipresence and Holiness, as it reveals His creation and preservation of the universe and all it contains.
This written Word of God allows us to understand who man is; God's special creation given perfect fellowship with his Creator, but estranged because of disobedience. To relate in truth to God, other men, and the world in which he dwells man needs to be reconciled to God.
God, in undeserved love for man, sent Jesus Christ, His one and only incarnate Son to live the perfect life, die and rise from the dead. The resurrected Christ now sits at the right hand of God as Lord, holding all things together. By grace, sin, death and hell are defeated, and through faith man is reconciled to God.
Personally receiving Christ as Saviour and Lord, and committing himself totally, redeemed man seeks to walk obediently, loving God with all his heart, soul, strength and mind and loving his neighbour as himself. This response will result in the application of Biblical Truth into every area of life rather than a retreat from the world.
Each child is recognised as unique, created in the image of God, precious in His sight and requiring personal salvation to be placed in the family of believers which form the body of Christ.
Recognising Christ as Lord of all and the need to glorify Him in all we do, we seek to be obedient in the training up of our children. Therefore the Association establishes Christian schools which seek to honour Christ in all areas and activities.
