John Leland Baptist College



  The Greek phrase at the bottom of the seal is the College Motto:  

 u`pe.r Cristou/ kai. th/j  evkklhsi,aj 


  It reads: 

 For Christ and the Church.”   



The Greek letters within the shield stand for four chief virtues of the Christian scholar:


Alh,qeia = truth 

  Dikaiosu,nh = righteousness 

  Gnw/sij = knowledge 

Sofi,a = wisdom.


The college’s official theme verse is Proverbs 23.12:


 הָבִ֣יאָה לַמּוּסָ֣ר לִבֶּ֑ךָ וְ֝אָזְנֶ֗ךָ לְאִמְרֵי־דָֽעַת

“Apply thine heart unto instruction and thine ears to the words of knowledge.”
