Our God

The Nature and Unity of the Godhead

We believe there is one God who is an eternal personal Spirit, and that He is infinite in power, wisdom, holiness and love. God is triune in essential being and revealed to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The Deity and Humanity of Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ as the second Person of the Godhead is eternally one with God the Father of whose person and glory Jesus is the accurate expression. To become human He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, so that two whole and perfect natures, the nature of God and human nature, were united in one Person; truly God and truly human.

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit as the third Person of the Trinity is eternally one with the Father and the Son yet He is sent by Them to achieve the divine purpose in the world and in the Church.

The Meaning of All This for Us

We serve a risen Saviour. He is in the world today. He is the source of our salvation. He died for our sins. One day He will return to establish His Kingdom which will last forever. We look forward to that day.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide early childhood care and learning in a Christian, nurturing, creative, and educationally innovative environment within a secure modern facility and to provide staff who are expertly trained and empowered to experience positive professional and personal growth.
