  1. The Holy Scriptures, as originally given by God, are divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and constitute the only supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)
  2. There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30)
  3. Our Lord Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh (John 10:33); we affirm his virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35), sinless humanity (Hebrews 4:25, 7:26), divine miracles (John 2:11), vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9), bodily resurrection (John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:4), ascension (Mark 16:9), ongoing mediatorial work, and personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11).
  4. The salvation of lost and sinful humanity is possible only through the merits of the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, received by faith apart from works, and is characterized by regeneration by the Holy Spirit. (John 3:16-19, 5:24; Romans 3:23, 5:8-9; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5)
  5. The Holy Spirit enables believers to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:13-14; I Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:30, 5:18)
  6. The Church, the body of Christ, consists of all true believers. (Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28)
  7. God will judge the living and the dead. (John 5:28-29)
** Our Statement of Faith is not exhaustive of all of our beliefs. The Bible, as the inspired and infallible Word of God, is the unchanging foundation for all beliefs and behaviour.


From our Executive Director, Dr. Derrick Mueller

As a passionate Christian educator, I am excited about the incredible opportunity for our association to shine the radiant and transforming light of Christ in everything we do. Inspired by the wisdom of Matthew 5:16, we are here to bring light to a world overshadowed by darkness, and we can do this by laying a foundation in a student’s life through Christian education. Our focus is on creating a nurturing and collaborative environment where innovative ideas intersect with a profound impact on the lives of our students. We genuinely believe that the presence of Christ has the potential to redefine the purpose and effectiveness of education altogether. As educators, administrators, and board members, we embrace the noble responsibility of providing life-changing education and guiding students to integrate their faith into their daily lives and academic pursuits. Our collective goal is to offer a comprehensive, high-quality educational experience that promotes spiritual, moral, and personal growth. Through our teamwork, schools, administrators, principals, teachers, parents, and churches are committed to instilling integrity, compassion, and humility into the character development of each student in our care.
