The Kingsway Spiritual Experience

Seventh-day Adventists accept the Bible as their only creed and hold certain fundamental beliefs to be the teaching of the Holy Scriptures.

 

We believe:  

  • The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are fully inspired by God and are the one final authority for faith and practice.
  • There is one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, a unity of three co-eternal Persons.
  • Man and woman were made in the image of God with individuality, the power and freedom to think and to do.
  • After the six days of Creation, God rested on the seventh day and established the Sabbath for all people as a memorial of Creation.
  • All humanity is now involved in a great controversy between Christ and Satan regarding the character of God, His law, and His sovereignty over the universe.
  • In Christ's life of perfect obedience to God's will, His suffering, death, and resurrection, God provided the only means of atonement for human sin, so that those who by faith accept this atonement may have eternal life. 
  • By His death on the cross Jesus triumphed over the forces of evil.   
  • We are called to be godly people who think, feel, and act in in harmony with the principles of heaven.
  • The second coming of Christ is the blessed hope of the church, the grand climax of the gospel.

 

Worship Experience

There are many opportunities for students to develop their personal relationship with God throughout the week by reading of the Bible, meditation, and prayer.  As a school family weattend a spiritual assembly on Wednesday mornings in our chapel.  KC students take turns coordinating and participating in the event through worship in music, prayer, and various dramatic presentations.

We begin our Sabbath at sundown on Friday evening with vespers, followed by Sabbath School on Saturday morning, mostly planned and led by student leaders and/or other small groups.  Then, we join our church family at the College Park SDA Church just a short walk down the street.  Many of our students participate in these corporate worship experiences, as well, either individually or through participation of the Band, Choir, or Praise Teams.

Members of the Kingsway staff, along with College Park Church families, also participate in the “Friend in touch” program, where families pray for, encourage with little notes, and anonymously send small care packages to their “adopted” kids to let them know they have a second family who cares about them. 

Small Group Ministries

Students are able to join or create small groups at the beginning of the year and are involved with worship services on campus and in the local community. Some are in Praise Teams, others are part of Touring Groups that travel to churches throughout Ontario and provide church service programming (sermons, children’s stories, scripture and prayer, etc.).

Outreach Experience

Community Outreach Days

In keeping with our school motto, "Service Not Fame", Kingsway offers numerous experiences to demonstrate Christianity and service in our community. Each semester the entire school spends the day in community outreach activities which may range from city beautification projects, volunteering at service agencies (MADD, Habitat for Humanity, the local Food Bank, and Community Service Centers ), to serving senior citizens’ needs with yard clean-up and household projects.

Mission Trips

Kingsway students have the opportunity to participate in many service projects, including mission trips outside Canada. We recently traveled to Tesopaco, Mexico on two building projects (2007 and 2009). Students are able to “practice what we preach” during these intense trips which usually include much more than constructing buildings. We offered Vacation Bible School experiences for the local children while there, and also conducted evangelistic meetings in the evenings, as well as the church service on Sabbath. It is a life-changing experience for all who are involved!

Week of Prayer

Twice a year one entire week of school is dedicated to conducting a Week of Prayer.  During the fall semester we usually have a guest speaker who spends all week on campus ministering to students and sharing a particular theme or topic.  Then, during spring semester, our own grade 12 students plan and conduct the week’s sermons, using ideas and topics conceived during their religion classes, then developed and nurtured with help from their teacher, our campus chaplain.  

Bible Studies

Through our Camus Ministries Department, our campus chaplain also conducts Bible study classes for students interested in learning more about God.  It is no accident that our goal at Kingsway is to be “closer together, closer to God.”

There are three student touring groups at Kingsway College - Aerials, Band, and Choir (ABC). Members of each group are selected after an audition process. What an awesome way to participate in a group, develop your God-given talents, and have fun, all at the same time!

Aerials Gymnastic Team

If you like gymnastics, you’ll love the Aerials!  While no academic credit is given, students still love the challenge of learning skills and working with their team.  The Aerials also travel extensively throughout Ontario and beyond, and they usually conduct Sabbath services in a church prior to a performance on Saturday nights.  Once a year they also present their “Homeshow” for the school family and a large local crowd.

Band

The Kingsway College Symphonic Band regularly takes top honours in the Durham Region Kiwanis competition, held on the KC campus.  In addition to performing on campus for school events and a few times a year for church services, the Band also tours an average of two weekends per month during second semester, traveling mainly to SDA churches in Ontario, as well as a couple longer trips outside the province and/or Canada during school breaks.  Two concerts at “home” round out the year’s activities.  (Academic credit given.)

Choir

The Kingsway Symphonic Choir enjoys a busy touring schedule throughout the year, and sings approximately once per month at College Park Church, Kingsway's “home” church.  During second semester, the choir also tours an average of two weekends per month to churches in Ontario, with one larger tour outside Ontario, usually during March Break.  (Academic credit given.)
