Principle of Education, No. 2

God Who created and sustains all things and governs them according to His sovereign counsel; Who is Triune and, as such, lives an eternal covenant-life of friendship in infinite perfection; from eternity chose and in time forms a people unto Himself, to stand in covenant-relationship unto Him in Christ Jesus their Lord, that they might walk in all good works which He ordained for them and in their life in the world should be to the praise of His glory, children of light in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation.
