SPIRITUAL LIFE AT GCS

GCS is a place to call home where students, staff, and parents are like family. For 25 years, Great Commission Schools has been working to provide the very best education for children in grades K – 12 while equipping them to go out and reach the world for Christ. GCS is first and foremost a Christian School. Every year a Scriptural theme is chosen and emphasized throughout the school year. We have a full-time, on-site campus pastor and each student takes religious classes as part of their daily curriculum. Students have chapel every Monday and every day at GCS begins with prayer. Your children will experience heart-changing discipleship in an environment focused on living, loving, & serving for the Glory of God.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

III.  Statement of Faith

Each member of the School Board, and each employee of the Corporation, having accepted Jesus Christ as personal Savior, shall subscribe annually in writing to the following Statement of Faith:

 

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God (II Timothy 3:15; II Peter 1:21).

 

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30).

 

We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9); His resurrection (John 11:25; I Corinthians 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the father (Mark 16:19); His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11).

 

We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation of the  exceeding sinfulness of human nature; and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God's grace and through faith are we saved (John 3:16-19; 5:24; Romans 3:23; 5:8-9; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5).

 

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved into the resurrection of life, and they that are lost into the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28-29).

 

We believe in spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9, I Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28).

 

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14; I Corinthians 3:16; 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:30; 5:18).
