Ephesians 2:11 -22
11 Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called “the uncircumcision” by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands— 12 remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
14 For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility 15 by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, 16 and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility. 17 And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. 18 For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father.
19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. 22 In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.
Cornerstone Collegiate Academy of Seoul (CCAS) believes in the one and only God. CCAS is a faith-based institution that professes with faith that God created everything on Heaven and Earth and saved His people. CCAS also proclaims that Jesus Christ resurrected from the dead and that the Holy Spirit lives inside His people.
Ephesians 2:11-22, the verse CCAS is named for, serves as the principal focus around which CCAS’ Biblical studies are built. In a world full of walls, CCAS’ Biblical studies' objective is to cultivate students who can connect those walls as cornerstones, through enacting forgiveness and making peace.
To achieve this, these following five (5) topics will be taught over the course of five (5) years:
The knowledge to know God, the wisdom to know me- Image of God, me;
Spirituality- Paradigm Shift;
CCAS' students and staff will learn to let their lives reflect the faith they have in God. They will rely on God's power alive within them through the Holy Spirit and reflect upon their various life experiences to faithfully walk with God. They will learn to seek after the knowledge of God and construct their understanding of the world through Biblical and Christian worldviews.
CCAS provides a healthy religious education and Christian worldviews based on the Bible, resulting in the best possible character education. This is also CCAS' educational philosophy. CCAS professes that humans were made in God's image and that education in character, based on Christian worldviews, is the best education to bring out humans' endless potential, dignity, and kindness. Regardless of one's age, color, ethnicity, gender, social position, or economic status, everyone is equal in the eyes of God, and our happiness matters to Him.
To develop this education in character, CCAS teaches philosophy and ethics through biblical counseling and Bible classes; students are challenged to grow in their spiritual walk, as they are guided to take biblical principles and apply them to real-life circumstances. CCAS education in character is built in the belief that the purpose of God's creation of humans was so that their acts of kindness could reflect His image of God, one the world cannot see. The students will learn to be witnesses of God's grace.
