Christian Beliefs

A foundation of Christian faith invites souls to grow toward God.

Christian faith shapes who we are and is interwoven into all areas of academic life.

We believe that Christian faith is an essential part of a classical education. The soul of the classical student is nourished by the contemplation of truth, goodness, and beauty, from which virtue and wisdom are cultivated. We believe that each child is created in the image of God, who is the source of everything good. It is a privilege to provide an environment where students have the freedom to deepen their curiosity for God and grow in their faith. As students leave our halls, it is our hope that they are grounded in the love of Christ and equipped with the truth of the gospel.

Our Statement of Faith

The Geneva School Statement of Faith grounds who we are and how we live in the world. Our faculty and parents affirm these beliefs, uniting us around a shared faith in Jesus Christ.

We believe in God, who is the infinite author and sustainer of all things, who called the universe into being, created persons in his own image, and set before each one the ways of life and death. (Genesis 1:26–28)

We believe in God, who in holiness and love sent prophets and apostles to declare God’s will and who, in the fullness of time, sent forth his son, Jesus Christ, to be our crucified and risen Savior. (John 3:16)

We believe in God, who, in Jesus Christ, lived among us, shared our common lot, set a perfect example, taught with divine authority, and conquered sin and death. (Matthew 7:28–29)

We believe in God, who, with Christ, sent the Holy Spirit to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, and to create and renew the church that binds in covenant faithful people of all ages, tongues, and races. (Acts 2:2-11)

We believe in God, who gave us his Word, the Bible, as his divine, inerrantly inspired revelation and carrying the full weight of his authority. (2 Timothy 3:16)

We believe in God, who created both male and female in his image and whose creative power, life-giving, self-giving, and moral nature are reflected and perfectly expressed in a godly union between male and female. (Genesis 1:27, 2:18–25, Mark 10:6–9)

We believe in God, who has called us by grace into his church through faith in Jesus Christ to accept the cost of discipleship, proclaim the gospel to the world, and serve our neighbors in humility and love. (Matthew 16:24–25, 24:14)

We are dedicated to providing an exceptional education that nourishes mind, soul, and heart to inspire students to grow abundantly.
