  1. I believe in the Scriptures of the Old and the New Testaments as verbally inspired by God, and inerrant in the original writing, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.

  2. I believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  3. I believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, and born of Mary, a virgin, and is true God and true man.

  4. I believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with sinful natures and are sinners in thought, word and deed.

  5. I believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for my sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.

  6. I believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and His present life there as High Priest and Advocate.

  7. I believe in the "Blessed Hope" -- the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, when the church will be "gathered together unto Him".

  8. I believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.

  9. I believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.


In a world that seems busier than ever, it's difficult to stay focused on what's most important to us. Clearly, we all want the best for our children. We all agree that values are important.

We at Key Bible Clubs believe our role is to help parents provide moral and spiritual guidance in their children's lives. We feel that an understanding of the Bible and its principles help children in their character development.

At Key Bible Clubs we share Biblical values that we believe will help give children a solid foundation for making wise choices that will last a lifetime. It's more than do's and don'ts. They learn to value themselves, to be sensitive to others and to appreciate the world around them. Most importantly, they come to understand how much God loves them.

At Key Bible Clubs we ask all our staff to sign a values statement each year. Click here to view the values statement we are committed to as we work with your children. We value...

  1. ... a God honouring ministry. We seek to honour God in our curriculum, programs, and all other aspects of our ministry. As we honour God, we believe He will honour our work by fostering Christ-centred faith in the children we serve (I Corinthians 10:31).

  2. ... the Bible as God’s inspired Word, His authority for all aspects of life. The primary goal of our curriculum is to help children use, understand and apply the Bible to daily life (I Timothy 3:16).

  3. ... children as created in God’s image. We treat every individual with dignity, respect and equality regardless of race, creed, age or gender (Matthew 19:14). ... an educational environment. We will use creative methods that recognize the developmental stages of children, their culture and the need to explore their issues and relate Biblical principles to them. We believe a children’s ministry should be safe, relational and fun. A loving and affirming environment is essential for spiritual growth to occur in the life of the student (Philippians 2:2-4).

  4. ... personal rights. Recognizing the right of every person to decide for themselves, and that no true change will take place apart from the work of God, we do not coerce children into making decisions (John 6:65).

  5. ... personal integrity. Biblical character must be evident and seen in the life of each leader (I Corinthians 11:1).

  6. ... personal relationships as God’s created design. We recognize the importance of children building healthy relationships with adults, peers, and children of other ages in the context of the family, local church and community, all the while recognizing that parents have the primary responsibility for raising and educating their children (Galatians 5:14, Deuteronomy 6:4-9).

  7. ... our club personnel. We will listen to our club personnel so we can provide them with the resources and training needed to increase their potential impact (II Timothy 2:2).

  8. ... stewardship. We recognize that all we have is from God. We are responsible to manage wisely those resources so that we honour God with their use (Titus 1:7).

Key Bible Clubs are a part of the ministry of Christian Service Centres (CSC), which was established in 1948 for the purpose of providing religious instruction for Ontario's public schools. With the phasing out of religious instruction in the classroom, the clubs were developed by the Board of Directors of CSC to meet the needs of those parents who wished biblical instruction for their children. All children who attend clubs must have parental permission. Christian Service Centres of Canada Inc. is a registered charity. All funding of our programs comes from individuals and local churches. All gifts are receipted as charitable donations.


We often hear from people that they are surprised that we hold clubs in public schools. However, the Education and Training Act of Ontario does have a regulation that permits Boards of Education to allow religious activities. Please click here to read Regulation #298 of The Education Act in full. Otherwise, you can see the relevant section below:

(3) A board may permit a person to conduct religious exercises or to provide instruction that includes indoctrination in a particular religion or religious belief in a school if, (a) the exercises are not conducted or the instruction is not provided by or under the auspices of the board; (b) the exercises are conducted or the instruction is provided on a school day at a time that is before or after the school’s instructional program, or on a day that is not a school day; (c) no person is required by the board to attend the exercises or instruction; and (d) the board provides space for the exercises or instruction on the same basis as it provides space for other community activities. R.R.O. 1990, Reg. 298, s. 29 (3). (4) A board that permits religious exercises or instruction under subsection (3) shall consider on an equitable basis all requests to conduct religious exercises or to provide instruction under subsection (3). R.R.O. 1990, Reg. 298, s. 29 (4).


As members of the Canadian Council of Christian Charities Christian Service Centers, the operators of Key Bible Clubs, is committed to handling the finances entrusted to us with the utmost integrity.

Christian Service Centers does not, directly or indirectly, pay finder’s fees, commissions or percentage compensation based on contributions (as outlined in our Ethical Fundraising and Financial Accountability Policy). Included in this policy is that we do not sell our donors list for any reason.
