It is our belief that all truth is God’s truth. Thus, the Christian makes no distinction between the truth of the sacred and secular. Truth is part of the very nature of God; indeed, the Lord Jesus said, “I am the truth …” (John 14:6). So, in our selection of textbooks, we are looking for the most appropriate for our school, whether they be sacred or secular.
