Statement of Faith

Grace Christian Academy does not endorse or teach any specific denomination. Grace Christian believes and teaches the essential doctrines of the Christian faith and adheres to these tenants without apology:

  • We believe and teach that the Bible is the Word of God, the sixty-six Books of the Old and New Testaments, verbally inspired in all parts (plenary), therefore, wholly without error (inerrant), as originally given of God. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21)
  • We believe and teach that God exists eternally as three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He is the infinite, eternal, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent Spirit, perfect in all His attributes, one in essence and nature, worthy of all worship, trust, and obedience. (Matthew 28:19, Luke 3:22, 2 Corinthians 13:14, John 4:24)
  • We believe and teach in the personality of the Holy Spirit, His deity, and His work in each believer: baptizing and indwelling at the moment of regeneration, and filling to empower for Christian life and service. (John 4:24, Acts 5:34, 1 Corinthians 12:13, Romans 8:9, Ephesians 5:18, Ephesians 3:16, Acts 1:8, Galatians 5:22-23)
  • We believe and teach in the preexistence and deity of Jesus Christ, His incarnation by virgin birth, His sinless life, His substitutionary death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven and present ministry, and His coming again. (John 1:13, John 1:1-14, Matthew 1:18-23, Hebrews 4:15, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Luke 24:36-43, Hebrews 4:14-16, Acts 1:11)
  • We believe and teach that man is the direct creation of God, being made in the image of God, that he subsequently fell into sin, resulting in spiritual death, and that the new birth is necessary for his salvation. (Genesis 1:26-28, Genesis 3:1-24, Romans 5:12, John 3:35)
  • We believe and teach that salvation is by God’ grace alone, received as the gift of God through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His finished work. (Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5-7, 1 Peter 1:18-19)
  • We believe and teach that there is one true church, the body and the bride of Christ, composed of all true believers of the present age; and the organization of its members in local churches for worship, for edification of believers, and for worldwide gospel witness, each local church being autonomous but cooperating in fellowship and work. (Ephesians 1:22-23, 5:25-32, 1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Ephesians 4:11-16)
  • We believe and teach that true believers must exhibit a life of unceasing righteousness, good works and separation unto God from the evil ways of the world, manifested by speaking the truth, maintaining the sanctity of the home, settling differences between Christians in accordance with the Word of God, not engaging in carnal strife but showing a Christ-like attitude toward all men, exhibiting the fruit of the Spirit, and maintaining a life of prayer, including the privilege, when sick, of calling for the Elders of the church to pray and to anoint with oil in the name of the Lord. (Romans 12:12, James 5:12, Ephesians 5:22-6:4, 1 Corinthians 6:18, Romans 12:17-21, Galatians 5:22-23, Ephesians 6:18; Philippians 4:6, James 5:13-18)
  • We believe and teach in the personal, visible, and imminent return of Christ to remove His church from the earth, before the tribulation, and afterward to descend with the Church to establish His millennial kingdom upon the earth. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, 1 Thessalonians 1:10, Revelation 3:10, Revelation 19:11-20:6)
  • We believe and teach in the conscious existence of the dead, the resurrection of the body, the judgment and reward of believers, the judgment and condemnation of unbelievers, the eternal life of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost. (Philippians 1:21-23, Luke 16:19-31, John 5:28-29, Romans 14:10-12; 2 Corinthians 5:10, Revelation 20:11-15, John 3:16, Matthew 25:46, Revelation 20:15)
