Beliefs about God

Seventh-day Adventist believe in God. In its educationa program TCAS seeks to help children discover what God is like and how to approach Him. Among our beliefs about God are the following:

  1. God Reveals Himself to man through the Holy Scriptures. Here God tells who He is and what His attribures are.  He reveals how He relates to us and we can relate to Him.

    • ​"Remember the former things of old: for I am God and there is none like Me." (Isaiah 46:9)​

    • "God is love: and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God and God in him." (1 John 4:16)

  2. Our studies in science are grounded in nature, where God reveals Himself.

    • "While the Bible should hold the first place in the education of children and youth, the book of nature is next in importance. God's created works testify to his love and power." (Counsels to teachers, p. 185)​

Beliefs about Man

Seventh-day Adventists belive that humankind has been created by God. Our educational profram seeks to help children discoer their purpose adn destiny, and to recognize their relationship to God.

Among TCAS's beliefs regarding the nature of humanity are the following:

  1.  Man is a created being

    • "and the Lord God formed man out of the dust of teh ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life: and man became a living soul." (Genesis 2:7)​

  2. Man needs a rebirth experience.

    • "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." (John 3:3)​

Beliefs about Learning

Seventh-day Adventist believe that the ability to learn is a gift from God. Learning is affected by the continuous interaction of heredity and enviroment.  Through heredity God gives man his intellect and talents.  Enviroment, which is the total of all outside factors that influence one's growth, helps determine the extent to which hereditarty factors will be developed and used. 

Beliefs about Christian Education

Seventh-day Adventist educators at TCAS derive their beliefs from the Holy Scriptures and the counsels of the inspired writing of Ellen G. White. The Bible teaches that since the fall of Adam and Eve all men and women are born with a bias toward evil, and that this bias has strenghtened with the passing centuries. Children can best achieve the ends for which they have been created through God-centered education, opening their minds to the unseen but all-powerful Spirit of God.
