Land AcknowledgementSeptember 1, 2023 2023-09-01 14:01
Eston College is grateful and privileged to operate in Regina, SK, which is a part of Treaty 4 Territory. This land is the ancestral home of many First Nations groups including (but not not limited to) the Cree, Assiniboine, Saulteaux, and Metis peoples. The Bible takes making, keeping, and breaking covenants (i.e., treaties) very seriously, and God loves and blesses all nations. (2 Pet 3:9, Ps 67:2-3) Therefore, we are committed to the ministry of reconciliation among indigenous peoples. (2 Cor 5:11-21) Sin and anti-Christ policies such as Residential Schools and ethnic oppression have been carried out in the name of Jesus in the past to the great harm of many people. We operate with the intent of growing more in the Holy Spirit and in humble understanding of one another so that the Good News of Jesus for all nations can also bless and restore our First Nations brothers and sisters (while also transforming us, too!) We welcome and celebrate our indigenous students, staff, and friends.
Additionally, our global community means that peoples from many different ethnic groups make their home here and enroll at Eston College. This ministry was founded on the prayer for God to “bring students from the four corners of the world so that we can send Gospel workers to the four corners of the world.” Therefore, we welcome and celebrate students, staff, and friends from every nation, people, and language group. (Rev 7:9) God is extending salvation to every nation and sends us with this apostolic calling to partner with him in reaching all. (Isa 61:11, Matt 28:18-20)
Praise God who is creating one family, one people, one Church by reconciling lost and sinful people to Himself and adopting us as sons and daughters!
