Worldview & The Arts
Striving to glorify God by motivating students to appreciate, create, and master the arts while faithfully serving the Creator and Master of all art.
When God created man as His image-bearer, He planted in his mind, heart, and hand the desire to create. We cultivate these artistic seeds in sonnet and sonata, voice and violin, ink and oil. We, alone among the creation, compose or play a fugue, gaze upon and then capture sunsets on canvas, experience depth and delight in tragedy or comedy.
We celebrate “goodness, truth, and beauty” in the Arts as an incarnational expression of what Gerard Manley Hopkins declared, "The world is charged with the grandeur of God.” Thus, we take delight in singing, painting, acting, shaping, and playing percussion knowing “The Christian. . . is free to have imagination. This too is our heritage. The Christian is one whose imagination should fly beyond the stars.” (Francis Schaeffer)
Such freedom flows from the One who orchestrates the music of the spheres and choreographs the redemptive dance of the Arts.
