Core Values

Our core values guide our staff, students, and families in making and carrying out decisions for everything we do and teach.

  • Bible-Centered

    Building on the foundation of God's Word and teaching within a biblical worldview

    QUESTION: How has your time in God's Word this week made an impact on your life and the lives of others?

    All Scripture is God breathed and useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
    -2 Timothy 3:16-17

  • Prayer

    Not only has God spoken to His people, we believe that God still speaks, and that He wants to also hear from us, and He wants us to seek him in all we do.

    QUESTION: In what ways have you prayed for the school, its leadership, families, and students this week?

    Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.
    -Philippians 4:6

  • Family-Focused

    Partnering with Bible-believing families to provide spiritual and academic support as they carry out the biblical mandates for raising their families

    QUESTION: In what ways have you demonstrated the importance of family to your own family and in the families of others?

    These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
    -Deuteronomy 6:6-7

  • Transformation & Growth

    Providing an environment and training where all can grow and become more Christ-like in attitude and actions

    QUESTION: In what ways are you experiencing Christ's transforming power in your life, and in what ways are you fostering that growth in the lives of others?

    Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
    -Romans 12:2

  • Love & Compassion

    Learning to love as Christ loves us, and extending that love to others

    QUESTION: In what ways have you demonstrated the love and compassion of Christ to others?

    So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other.
    -John 13:34

  • Excellence

    Because we serve the Creator of the universe, we believe that everything we do is a reflection of the One who deserves our best.

    QUESTION: How are you actively striving to achieve excellence in your own life, in the lives of others, and in the ministry of GCCS?

    Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people
    -Ephesians 6:7

  • Service

    Using the abilities and spiritual gifts we have been given to serve others

    QUESTION: In what ways have you been Christ to others through serving them this week?

    Not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
    -Philippians 2:4
