|Design:||The University Church of the Central Philippine University is considered to be a landmark in lloilo City. Its unique architecture is resonant of an Indonesian style of a house built on palm leaves and bamboo. It is a constant reminder of the university’s motto, “Scientia et Fides” which highlights Jesus Christ in all its teachings through which the American Baptist Missionary Society Founded it in 1905. Dr. William 0. Valentine, the first principal to what was once the Jaro Industrial School for boys, lead the mission of sharing the gospel through education. The Centennial logo symbolizes the link that binds all Centralians around the world and that is simply called the “Central Spirit”. The Centennial theme: “Excel for God’s Greatest Glory” expresses the message that all Centralians must become an example in both word and deed wherever they may be.|
