THE WORD OF GOD
We believe the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and that it has supreme authority in faith and conduct.
We believe there is one living and true God who is omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, and sovereign in all things and is limited by nothing other than His own nature and character. We believe God is eternally existing in three persons and that these three are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.
GOD THE FATHER
We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
GOD THE SON, JESUS CHRIST
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth.
GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher, and guide.
We believe all men are sinners by nature and by choice and are, therefore, under condemnation. We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone, and that faith without works is dead. We believe those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ alone as Savior are regenerated by the Holy Spirit.
MARRIAGE AND SEXUALITY
We believe that God wonderfully and immutably created each person male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. Rejection of one’s biological gender is a rejection of the image of God within that person.
We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning and that is a marriage sanctioned by God which joins one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union as delineated in Scripture. We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. We believe that God has prohibited intimate sexual activity outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.
We believe that any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication, homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, pornography, and attempting to change one’s biological sex or otherwise acting upon any disagreement with one’s biological sex) or advocacy of sexual immorality is sinful and offensive to God.
We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ.
We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accordance with Scripture or the policies of Grace Classical Academy.
We believe that in order to preserve the mission and integrity of the school and to provide a biblical role model to the students and the community, it is imperative that all persons employed by the school and all those who attend the school should agree to abide by this Statement of Faith, and all parents/legal guardians of persons who attend the school should agree to this Statement of Faith.
