Bethlehem College Chapman is a place where each person is significant. We recognise our connection to our Creator God/Te Atua through His son Jesus Christ/Ihu Karaiti. Made in His image, with unique purpose and design, we are a community of learners, journeying together. We bring who God has made each one of us to be, our heritage, gifts, and talents, so that we may contribute to, and build up, our entire community.
God shapes our character through being with each other - we learn how to love, how to be patient, kind and forgiving through living in community and being interdependent. It is community which allows us to walk out our beliefs, attitudes and virtues with integrity. We share our gifts and talents, we serve one another, we learn with and from each other, and in this process we grow as individuals and as a BC Chapman community.
Our kura/school is a place in which a true sense of belonging is experienced and where a turangawaewae/a place to stand, is known and fully experienced. It continues to be a place of generational equipping, a place which acknowledges and reveals heritage. It is past, present and future, totally authentic and relevant, reflective of relational connection and of the on-going story, we are each a part of. God is at work in our midst preparing us for, and propelling us into a world, in which we can live a life that makes a difference, through being Impacted by Truth, Informed by Faith, Inspired by Hope, Ignited by Love and Identified by Service.
