Spiritual Life

At GCA, we long to see students learn to walk closely with God and to know His Word. The Bible tells us that “the heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps” (Proverbs 16:9). Each of us must repent of our sins and believe in Jesus Christ for salvation. It is then that the believer’s spiritual life truly begins. Students at GCA begin each day with Bible reading and prayer. They also have opportunities each week to grow spiritually and to move toward greater maturity in Christ. These include Bible classes, worship in chapel, and mission projects.

Weekly Bible classes are an essential part of our curriculum at GCA. Over the four high school years, students will study the Old Testament Scriptures, learn from the life of Christ in the Gospels, examine the New Testament Epistles and Revelation, and conclude with a capstone class that brings together all these elements and prepares them for the future.

Weekly chapel worship allows students to hear GCA faculty and staff, local pastors, and other guests preach from God’s Word and share their testimonies of God’s goodness, compassion, healing, and provision. Often, students have opportunities to interact with the messages, which promotes understanding and growth.

Mission projects also provide ways in which students can implement what they have learned, bless those in need, and develop the disciplines of ministry and service. Food drives, community service, and evangelistic outreach are all ways in which our students can contribute to others and bring glory to Jesus Christ.
