Vision, Mission & Philosophy

Vision

To be a leading provider of quality Christian Education delivered by Christian Staff, ensuring the Gospel message is an integral part of all we do.

Mission

The mission of Rivercrest Christian College is to partner with parents and the wider community to help develop within each student the ability and desire to find and fulfill the will of God for their lives. The College offers human and practical resources, a unique environment and opportunities to develop the gifts and talents God has given to each member of the College community. Specifically, each student will be encouraged to develop Christian faith and character as they pursue excellence at an academic, creative and practical level, all of which are valuable. Following on from our motto ‘Strength and Service’, we seek to develop in our students strong character and intellect along with a willingness to serve others within our global community.

Philosophy

Rivercrest Christian College offers students an educational opportunity established on a Christian foundation. The basis of this foundation is God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) as Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer.

As students prepare to take their place in Australian society, the College seeks to instill in them high standards of Biblical morality, an understanding of social justice and respect for others. The acquisition of knowledge, understanding and wisdom are desired spiritual and educational outcomes for each student.

Our curriculum recognises the Lordship of Christ and the Bible as the inspired Word of God. The Scriptures reveal God’s desire for everyone to be in a personal relationship with Him, developing their gifts and talents in service to Him as they grow in Christian character. This relationship is considered to be a model for all other relationships, as well as the basis for the building of self-esteem and a fulfilling way of life.
