The core beliefs and “virtues” of GCCS. Click here
The doctrinal beliefs of Gloucester County Christian School are the same as Hardingville Bible Church.
- The Holy Bible, in the original manuscripts, is the verbal, plenary, inerrant and infallible Word of God. We believe that God has preserved His
- Holy Scriptures and that they are the only rule of authority of faith and practice.
- In One Triune God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- In the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, that He is the Eternal Son of God, that He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, that He lived a sinless and perfect life, died on Calvary’s Cross, was buried, rose again the third day, and ascended into heaven.
- In the deity of the Holy Spirit, that He is a person and not a force. We believe the sign gifts of the Spirit were for the infant church and are not for the church today.
- That God created the heavens and the earth in six literal days. We believe that life is sacred and that it begins at conception.
- That man was ruined by the fall and that he is totally depraved. We believe that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone and in Christ alone. We believe in the literal bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe in the eternal security of the believer.
- The Church began with the descent of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost, and that those who receive the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior are members of the Body of Christ and are indwelt by the Holy Spirit.
- That the Great Commission is for the Church and that the Lord’s Supper as a memorial and Baptism by Immersion are the ordinances of the church.
- That Satan is a person, the author of the fall, and that he has been defeated on the cross, and shall be eternally punished.
- In a pre-tribulational rapture of the church and the pre-millennial return of Christ in glory. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead and in the eternal conscious punishment of the lost and the eternal joy of the saved.
