Our Vision Illustration Explained

At KingsGate School, our foremost aim is to develop in students a vibrant Christian character – the ability to be servant leaders who are worshiping, creating, problem-solving, challenging, achieving, risk-taking, sharing and celebrating and whose lives visibly display the concepts of te wairuatanga (spirituality) and mana (kudos/standing). Servant leaders who display these qualities, built on the foundations of relationship, respect, prayer, wisdom and education, will be living examples of the freedom and peace to be found through a life lived in relationship with God and bringing glory to Him.

Who we are


  • The School is a Christian School in which the whole School community through the general School programme, and in its religious instructions and observances, exercises the right to live and teach the values of Jesus Christ. These values are expressed in the Scriptures and in the practices, worship and doctrine of the Evangelical Christian Church, as determined from time to time by the Proprietor (From the Deed of Integration)
  • KingsGate is a family oriented school. We emphasize maximum involvement between the child’s home, the school and the community. As in a good home, the school aims for a friendly and happy atmosphere with firm and consistent discipline.
  • We believe that a school functions best where parents are given the opportunity to be a part of the total programme, involved in any area where they feel they can offer assistance.
  • The need for prayer is vital. Each morning teachers gather for focused prayer for the school and its families.
  • Parents and friends of the school join the school’s weekly prayer meetings on Friday mornings in the staff room.
  • As is true for the wider Pukekohe community, KingsGate School enjoys a rich cultural diversity among its families. The school focuses on the value God places on all people, as well as the context in which He places them.
  • The school focuses on providing‘...an holistic education, addressing the spiritual, cultural, social, emotional, physical and academic needs of each student. Such education must be relevant to the time and situation in which we live and also provide students with avenues of service in the community. This will equip students to live in the world, while remaining true to the core Christian beliefs and values’ (From ‘The KingsGate School Vision Explained’).


STATEMENT OF FAITH


KingsGate School is non-denominational. Whilst teachers and school families represent many different Christian congregations, we hold the following truths:

  • We believe in the Triune God, eternal in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit One God, the only living and true God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth.
  • We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of the Father; that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, crucified, died and was buried, was resurrected from the dead and ascended into Heaven; that He is presently at the right hand of God the Father as Prophet, Priest and King and will personally return to earth in power and glory to judge the living and the dead.
  • We believe that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as originally given are the inspired and infallible record of the Revelation of God to man, and are the supreme authority in all matters of life and faith.
  • We believe in the sovereignty of God in creation, providence and redemption.
  • We believe God’s acts of creation, and not evolution, are responsible for the origin of all things, and that creation according to the Biblical record is an historical event.
  • We believe in the providence of God whereby He upholds the universe, governs the world, supplies the needs of His creatures and brings His will to pass.
  • We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God to have dominion over the Earth and to do all things to the glory of God.
  • We believe in man’s universal fall into sin through Adam’s transgression and in his subsequent guilt, depravity, judgment and condemnation. i) We believe in the free offer of salvation to all men and the necessity of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ to be saved.
  • We believe that to those who believe God imputes righteousness - not on account of their faith or good works but because of God’s grace.
  • We believe in the necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit to apply the benefits of Christ’s redemption to individual sinners, working in them at times regeneration, faith, repentance, sanctification, and glory to God.
  • We believe the Holy Spirit’s indwelling of the believer begins at regeneration and enables the believer to continuously die unto and be forgiven for sin and to live unto righteousness. We believe in one Holy, universal Church, the Body of Christ, to which all God’s redeemed people belong and in which they are united through the Spirit.

All Staff, Board members and Trustees ascribe to the above statement of faith.
