We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and
dignity. (Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31.) Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed
toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture nor the
standards of Grace Christian Academy.

We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their
sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. (Acts 3:19-21; Rom. 10:9-10;
1 Cor. 6:9-11.)

We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female.
These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God.
(Gen 1:26-27.)

We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one
woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. (Gen. 2:18-25.) We believe
that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are
married to each other. (1 Cor. 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb. 13:4.) We believe that God has
commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between
a man and a woman.

We believe that any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication, homosexual
behavior, bisexual conduct and use of pornography) is sin. (Matt. 15:18-20; 1 Cor. 6:9-10.)
