Point of Grace #3: We believe that developing an intelligent faith and intimate friendship with Jesus will create lifelong fulfillment.
While other schools focus on preparing students for college or a job, we spend our resources preparing students for life. God has a unique purpose for each student’s life. School should be a place where students discover and develop that purpose. We equip students with a Christian worldview so they understand God’s truths regarding real world issues like history, abortion, politics, wealth, hunger, and marriage. Students learn the relevance of biblical truths, the purpose of evangelism, and the importance of discipleship. Grace Prep students are equipped to intelligently share their faith, discuss evolution, creation, world religions and influential philosophies. Everything we do from playing varsity basketball, to choosing the 10th grade reading list, reflects our commitment to God and grace.
Statement of Faith–The Apostle’s Creed
At Grace Prep, we believe that schools cannot teach truth effectively if they don’t acknowledge Jesus Christ as the foundation for all Truth. Truth hasn’t changed since the earth was created, so we haven’t created our own statement of faith. We’ve adopted one that’s been around for a while. The Apostles’ Creed received its title because of its great antiquity. It dates from very early times in the Church, a half century or so from the last writings of the New Testament. Students at Grace Prep will memorize the Creed and learn to view life situations through it–from how to respond to a basketball defeat to why we should use mathematics to defend the Creation of the world.
