About/Faith

Servant leadership begins with faith.

A Biblical Worldview

At GCA, our faith is integral to our heart. We incorporate biblically based truth and teachings in all that we do, in order to support students, families, and each other to live out the calling God has placed on our lives, individually and together.

We are a private Christian school that grows students into servant leaders.

By focusing on whole-person development, we ensure our students don’t just excel academically, but that they are prepared for spiritual growth and leadership to impact the world.

Essential Beliefs

The One True God

We believe that God exists eternally and that He manifests Himself in three persons … God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

The Lord Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, was crucified, buried, and rose bodily from the grave and will come again to this world to reign in righteousness.

The Holy Spirit

We believe that a person is baptized by the Holy Spirit into the Body of Christ at the time of conversion; this baptism results in a believer being filled and supernaturally empowered for service through spiritual gifts.

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is our supreme authority, and it is sufficient as our only rule of faith and practice. The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit and it is truth without any mixture of error.

Salvation

We believe that forgiveness of sin, salvation, and new life is made possible by the death of Jesus Christ on the cross. This salvation is by grace, through faith, and by the appropriation of the shed blood of Jesus Christ.

Eternity

We believe there shall be a resurrection of the saved to eternal life and a resurrection of the unsaved to eternal punishment in hell. Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity.

"GCA includes Christ in everything we do. Every person here has a story of how God has moved in them. Our teachers and staff here tell you their testimonies and share how God is working in their life. Seeing and listening about how God uses those around me to further His kingdom encourages me to look for God in each part of my own life. My faith is strengthened because of this school. The things I learn here help reinforce what I learn at church and at home, and make my relationship with Christ that much more personal."

– Chloe Hansen, Class of 2023

"My husband grew up in a Christian school, and really wanted our children to have the same opportunity. I had to be convinced, but I am fully committed in that decision now. The academics are amazing and her ability to stand firm in her faith makes me grateful that she can attend. In Kindergarten, Eva learned a valuable lesson to not give into fear. We are so thankful she has carried that in her heart, throughout 2020!"

– Bethany Malloy, Parent

"I have grown so much in my faith this year because of our amazing staff! Our culture, especially in the last several months, has pulled young people in so many directions, forcing us to reexamine our values and beliefs based on Biblical truth. Being in a Christian environment during this time has really helped my faith and encouraged me!"

– Ella Pound, Class of 2022

"There is so much that we love about GCA! We love that his education is Bible-Based and how much the teachers love and care for their students. Ronny's prayer life has grown as a kindergartener and I am so grateful for the faith foundation he is learning from studying the Bible."

– Ronda Graham, Parent
