What to Expect Spiritually
We are committed to providing a safe environment that promotes Biblical-based Christian principles. Traits such as putting others before self, personal responsibility, honesty, etc. are expected of all students that attend GCS. Our students attend Bible class and chapel every day. Everything we do is based on Biblical teachings, from our worship to each policy/rule in our Student Handbooks. While GCS is affiliated with the Churches of Christ, about 60% of our student body comes from families belonging to Baptist, Methodist, Church of God, and other congregations. We encourage each student to work out their own salvation with fear and trembling (Phil 2:12).
Statement of Faith
We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God. There is only one God who exists as three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. All men are sinners and because of sin are separated from God.
We believe that Jesus was God's answer to our sin. Jesus came to earth as a man to pay the penalty for our sin by death on the cross and that on the third day He rose again.
We also believe that salvation is a free gift from God for all who receive it through faith and trust in Jesus Christ. By trusting in Christ, we are called to acknowledge Him as Lord and Savior, be baptized, and live a life of repentance. We further believe that as Christians we are to proclaim the Gospel to the world.
We believe the Bible is God's inspired Word, worthy of our study and application. We have no creed but Christ, no book but the Bible. Jesus, as the Son of God, is the foundation upon which all we teach finds authority and meaning.
We believe there is but one Church, made up of all those who are personally related to God through His Son Jesus. We encourage the unity of all Christians, and believe that this unity can be achieved when love for Christ is greater than love for man-made traditions. Having Christ in common is what makes the Church, builds relationships, and strengthens families and communities.
Christ-Centered refers to the Lordship or authority of Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, and the Church is built upon that confession of faith. (Matthew 16:15-18)
Bible-Teaching refers to our belief that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. Our teaching finds its authority not in psychology, philosophy, or popular opinion, but in the timeless truth of Scripture. (2 Timothy 2:15 and 3:16)
