ACSI Australia exists to strengthen Christian schools and empower young people to reach their full potential in Jesus Christ.
- We believe that as a global movement of Christian schools, and as ambassadors of Christ, we are called to emulate Christ by humbly serving others and preaching the Gospel in word and deed.
- We envision Christian schools that are obedient to Christ’s commands to show grace to the poor and marginalised, build unity in the global church, and bring glory to God’s name. These schools would be “lighthouses”, not “clubhouses”, blessing others out of the abundant blessing they have received, and working together as one global body.
- We want to see students grow to be bold in their faith, full of compassion and empathy, and always “dressed ready for service” (Luke 12:35) as they pursue Christ throughout their whole lives.
As a result of the guiding principles above, we seek genuine partnerships with Christian schools and organisations around the world in order to unify the body of believers and see people transformed by the love of Christ. We work to empower people to become agents of change in their own sphere of influence, respecting their knowledge, skills, and abilities. We speak out for those who cannot be heard, while also amplifying their voice so they might speak for themselves. We are quick to listen, and seek to draw out each person’s God-given strengths, abilities and potential so that they might be free to pursue their life’s calling in Christ.
