Our Purpose and Philosophy

 The purpose of Gethsemane Baptist Christian School, based on Luke 2:52, is to educate and train the whole student—physically, socially, intellectually, and spiritually.  GBCS is a ministry of Gethsemane Baptist Church.  As such, it adheres to the doctrinal statement of the church.  Recognizing that the primary responsibility for education rests with parents (Psalm 78:5-6), Gethsemane Baptist Christian School serves as an extension of the family to aid parents in this task.

     The philosophy of GBCS is based on the premise that man’s ultimate purpose is to glorify God (I Cor. 6:19-20; 10:31).  GBCS exists to help each student reach his full potential by guiding him in developing spiritually and morally, personally, socially, and academically.

Gethsemane Baptist Christian School exists to support parents and guardians in their biblical responsibility to nurture and train their children.  Thus, GBCS provides opportunities which allow students to realize their God-given potential and to live lives that glorify God in all aspects of life—spiritual, academic, social, physical, and vocational.

Gethsemane Baptist Christian School seeks to lead students to faith in Jesus Christ and to develop young men and women who adhere to a Christian worldview, prepared to participate as godly members of home, church, and society.
