Spiritual Development

As a Christian school, GPCS complements the efforts of the Christian home and church in helping students discover their purpose and destiny in Christ. We want every student to hear the good news of Jesus Christ; to come to personal, saving faith in Him; and then to grow in their relationship with Christ.

With the goal of training students to view every aspect of life through the lens of God’s Word, GPCS teachers integrate biblical truth with every subject area. At GPCS, God’s natural creation and His supernatural Word come together to form a comprehensive Christian worldview, providing students the solid foundation they need to understand themselves and their world and to evaluate their culture. Developing a Christian mind helps students fulfill the First Great Commandment: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” (Matthew 22:37).

Spiritual development is also cultivated by providing a school environment where we seek, however imperfectly, to honor Christ in our actions, attitudes, and words. This begins with our school leadership, faculty, and staff, who have been carefully selected not only for their professional credentials and expertise, but also because they are committed to traditional biblical values and to the spiritual development of our students.

Bible classes, weekly chapels, daily prayer and Bible reading, community service activities, mission trips (high school) and an emphasis on biblical character are some of the other ways we nurture the spiritual growth of our students.
