Our Vision

College Motto

The College motto, Walk as Children of the Light, points us in the direction we must be going. We have to more fully come to know Jesus Christ, who is the Light of the World, and to know what it means to be “Children of the Light”. The motto tells us then to be what we are, and thus a major objective of the College is to expose its students to the Light of the World and His plan for them.

Immanuel Lutheran College Logo

College Logo

Our logo shows the Cross of Christ in front of the rising sun. Since the sun gives us light, the logo highlights Jesus as the Light of the World. Light also reveals and exposes and we are reminded to look at ourselves as Jesus sees us. The sun is a symbol of the Sunshine Coast, its surf, sand and enjoyment. The Cross is a symbol of Christ and His love for the World. When these two symbols are put together, we have a picture of Christ in the world where we are.
