Christian World View

Everyone has a world view. All people live their lives according to this view and through it answer questions such as: Is there a God? Is there a purpose in human history? How do we know for sure? What is my purpose in living?

A distinctly Christian view of the world is founded in God’s character and His action in the world He has made. This is incomparably expressed in Jesus, God’s son. The Bible tells us who God is and proclaim’s His creative and redemptive activity, explains who we are and communicates God’s calling to His people. A Christian view sees things as they are – distorted by sin – and is liberated by the belief that all people were created to live purposefully and faithfully in service to God. It recognises the diversity of God’s creation and rejoices that his diversity is united through Jesus. The Christian world view that underpins all of PCS Middle School curriculum and teaching follows this belief and formalises it through the Biblical motif of Creation – Fall – Redemption – Restoration.
