About our School

About our School

GCS offers a Christ-centered education of academic excellence enriched with classes in physical education and sports, art, Spanish, computers, spelling and speech competition. Daily prayers, weekly chapels, and year-round service are an important part of Galesburg Christian School. With loving teachers who see this not as their jobs but as their ministry, GCS provides a great foundation for its students’ future growth.

The well-qualified GCS teachers are certified by the Illinois State Board of Education and/or the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). The teaching staff for our classes below K-5 have years of practical experience and documented success in teaching.

With the dual commitments to provide academic excellence and spiritual growth, the GCS Board hires only those who are strong Christians with a heart for teaching.

GCS administrative & support staff work behind the scenes during the school day to make the school function. From serving lunches to book keeping, the roles they fill are varied, but always done with the love of Christ!


WHAT WE BELIEVE

– We believe the Bible is the only written Word of God. It is inspired by Him and is wholly trustworthy and authoritative.

– We believe in one God, eternally manifested and existent as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

– We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His miracles, in His atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal future return to the earth in power and glory.

– We believe in the necessity of salvation through regeneration by the Holy Spirit because of man’s sinful nature inherited from Adam. We believe that man is justified only through God’s grace by personal repentance and faith in Jesus Christ and his shed blood.

– We believe in the resurrection of all persons – those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

– We believe in the spiritual unity of the believer in our Lord Jesus Christ.

– We believe in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit by whom the believer receives sanctification and the power to live a godly life.
