Purpose & Beliefs

Our Purpose

Since its establishment in 1968, Grace Baptist Academy has existed to encourage and assist families committed to fulfilling the Biblical mandate to provide a Christian education for their children. The purpose of the academy is to provide thorough academic instruction from a Biblical worldview, to help students develop socially by teaching patriotism and respect for authority, and to encourage students spiritually by emphasizing one's personal accountability to God while developing the mind of Christ. Our goals for every student are...
  • To know the love of Jesus Christ through example and teaching and to learn the importance of showing this love to others.
  • To acquire a lifestyle of Christian character, morality, respect, and responsibility.
  • To participate in acquiring the finest education available in a school whose expectations are constantly being increased.
  • To be provided with a variety of co-curricular opportunities conducted in an atmosphere and with attitudes and behaviors that exalt Jesus Christ.
  • To find daily at GBA an atmosphere of love, joy, righteousness, and respect.

Our Beliefs

Grace Baptist Academy adheres to the doctrinal position of Grace Baptist Church, and all religious instruction falls within the teaching of the church. Our primary goal at GBA is to train young people to better serve and experience the love of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in and teach these basic principles:
  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative, inherent Word of God. (II Timothy 3:15; II Peter 1:21).
  • We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1;         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 4:14, 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), and His personal return to power and glory    (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11).
  • We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature, that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, and that only by God's grace and through faith alone 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 unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28-29).
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of true Biblical believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (I Corinthians 12:12-13).
  • 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).
