Beliefs

We believe in the Creator of the heavens and the earth, a triune God consisting of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; a God who is eternal, infinite, creative, loving, and holy; a God who made everything, including people in His image, giving all of creation and the creative process value.

We believe art imitates what God first created and should therefore be reflective of the excellence, beauty, and design inherent in all of creation.

We believe art also reflects our experience as human beings living in a fallen and sinful world, but with the hope of redemption through the death and resurrection of Jesus and should therefore tell the whole story, a story of both ugliness and beauty, of pain and joy, of death and rebirth.

We believe art quickly penetrates to the heart and mind of a person on a conscious and subconscious level and should therefore be crafted to teach, encourage, and challenge people, bringing glory to God.

We believe people feel more alive when creating and should therefore have access to arts training.

We believe the arts can and have been corrupted by people, but have no inherent evil and should therefore be reclaimed for God’s Kingdom.
