Board

. . . . . .

The Board of Management is governed by the Geneva Fellowship Incorporated Rules of Association and is responsible for the governance of the School. All Board members are members of the GFI Association. The Board’s primary role is to seek Godly wisdom, direct and support the Principal and provide strategic guidance for the School.

The Principal is appointed by the Board of Management and is responsible for the activities and operations of the School. The Principal is not a member of the Board, but attends meetings of the Board and of its subcommittees.

Articles of Faith

Each member of the association believes:

  • that the 66 books of the Bible are the Word of God, divinely inspired in all parts without error in its origin and the sole authority for doctrine and practice
  • in the one Triune God, eternally existent as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who created the physical universe by His direct and immediate spoken word, and man in His own image, during the six days of creation
  • in the preexistence, incarnation, virgin birth, sinless nature and life, miracles, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, ascension to heaven, and personal bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ
  • that Satan is a real personality and an evil presence in the world
  • in the total depravity of the nature of man and the entrance of death into the world through his sin in the Garden of Eden, and the absolute inability of man to save himself from eternal punishment by his own works
  • in the regeneration of man by the grace of God and the work of the Holy Spirit, which is available to whoever comes to Christ through faith in His finished work on the cross
  • in the spiritual relationship of all believers with the Lord Jesus Christ, and the need to witness to His saving grace and live a life of good works and service, through the ministry of the Holy Spirit

Where disagreement among members of the Association exists over interpretation of Scripture, the Baptist Confession of Faith 1689 shall be referred to as the correct interpretation of Scripture.

Educational Creed

Holy Scriptures & Education 2 Tim 3:16, 17

By faith we confess the books of the Old and New Testaments to be the Divinely inspired, in-errant Word of God a, the only absolute rule of all faith and conduct, and therefore also for the education of our children at home and at school.

Christian Parents & Education Eph 6:4

We believe that in His wise covenant, God has appointed the parents to be responsible for the education of the child-and accept the responsibility to bring up our children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord a, and therefore also hold ourselves responsible for that part of their education which takes place outside the home in the school.

Christian Schools

Believing Christ to be the Lord of our whole life, we understand a Christian school to be a legitimate educational institution in which all subjects are taught by the light of God’s revelation in Jesus Christ, as contained in the Old and New Testaments, and in which Christ is honoured by daily prayer and study of the Bible. In view of the above, the purpose of Christian Education is:

  • to continue the God-centred and God-honouring programme of instruction begun in the home.
  • to ensure this objective by the appointment of teachers who agree with and adhere to the principles expressed in this creed, and the beliefs set out in the school’s Statement of Faith.
  • to direct the child to commit his/her heart to the Lord and His service.

Doctrines Of Special Importance To Christian Education

God & Creation Col 1:15-17; Gen 1; Psalm 33:6; Psalm 8; Psalm 19; Rom 11:36

All things were created by God through His Word and Spirit and to the glorification of His Holy Name a. It is God who preserves all creation. From these beliefs must proceed man’s effort to understand the universe and the Scripture.

The Bible & Science

Creation as well as Scripture have been brought forth by the same God of truth. Therefore, any seeming discrepancy between the Bible and science can only be due to human error, either in science or in the interpretation of Scripture. Science is truly scientific when both nature and scripture are taken seriously.

Man Gen 1:26; Acts 17:16; Gen 1:28; Psalm 8:4; Rom1:20

Man was created in the image of God to enjoy true communion with Him a. Man was instructed to exercise dominion over the whole world in loving obedience to God, whose works and glory he should make manifest through all his life and doings.

Sin Gen 3:16-19; Rom 8:19; Rom 1:18

By disobeying God’s law, man estranged himself from God and his neighbour and brought God’s curse upon himself and all creation. As a result, man became blind to life’s true meaning and purpose, he misuses his knowledge and abilities, and adheres to man-centred philosophies.

Christ John 1:1-14; 1 Cor. 1:30; Rom 8:1-17

Jesus Christ is God become man a. By His death and resurrection He redeems our life in its entirety b, so that we may know God, ourselves and the world in which we live, and may seek to do His will in all spheres of life

The Holy Spirit 2 Cor 13:14; Gen 1:2; Psalm 104:30; John 16:13; 1 Cor 2:9; John 3:3

The Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity a, is the divine source of all created life b and truth c and of faith in Christ.

Note: It is also important that prospective members of the Association be able to give a credible statement of their personal faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour, Lord, and God, and a commitment to pray regularly for the needs, work, and objectives of the Association.
