To help guide the delivery of the Australian Curriculum, John Calvin School uses Christian Worldview Statements, which highlight that, across all areas of the curriculum, students should be taught about God’s sovereignty, the authority of Holy Scripture, Christ’s salvation of the world and how the Holy Spirit equips them for the threefold office of believers as prophets, priests and kings. These themes are elaborated in more detail below:


The Authority of Holy Scripture

CW.1 - All scripture is inspired by God and is “profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16, 17). The Old and New Testament are holy and canonical, self-interpreting and complete.[1]
CW.2 - God’s laws function as the norm for living in accordance with God’s will and as a guide for Christians in living thankful lives. They teach Christians how to love both God and their neighbour (Matthew 22:37).

The Sovereignty of God the Father

CW.3 - God created both the Heavens and the Earth (Psalm 24:1, 2). He directs all events, exercising His Kingship over every aspect of life (Acts 17:26, Hebrews 1:3).[2]

Jesus Christ as Saviour of the World

CW.4 - God commanded mankind to develop the world He created (Genesis 1:28), but through the fall into sin man became subject to death and unable to fulfil the cultural mandate (Genesis 6:5). God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to pay for sin and remove the curse of death (John 3:17).[3]
CW.5 - Christ’s return is imminent, bringing with it the fullness of God’s kingdom (1 Corinthians 15:28). This expectation serves as a call to repent from sin (Matthew 3:2) and live in readiness for Christ’s return (Romans 8:22, 23).

The Christian equipped by the Holy Spirit for service as Prophet, Priest and King

CW.6 - Because of Christ’s work, all cultural activity has meaning. Christians are called to be a redemptive influence in a broken world (Matthew 5:13-16). As members of Christ they are filled with the Holy Spirit in order to confess God’s name as prophets (Romans 10:9), present themselves as sacrifices of thankfulness to Him as priests (1 Peter 2:5,9), and fight against sin and the devil as kings (Ephesians 6:11).[4]
