Provide whole-person education according to the spirit of Jesus Christ; Nurture abundant lives by teaching the gospel.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is insight. (Proverbs 9:10)
Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. (Proverbs 22:6)
3. We believe：
That each and every student is the love of God and endowed individually. We therefore respect each of them and help them develop their potential to the full.
That through whole-person education on moral, intellectual, physical, social, aesthetic and spiritual aspects, every student will be able to model on Jesus Christ, to “grow in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men. “ (Luke 2:52)
That the meaning of life does not lie in material affluence but in the quality of life. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the basis for development of a holistic life：“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. “(John 10:10)
That education is teaching by word and deed, just as what Jesus Christ did to his disciples.
