Trusting God


But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6)


Our relationship with God is largely determined by our faith. When we come to Him, we must believe that He exists and that He is exactly who He has revealed Himself to be in Scriptures. We must believe that He will respond to us when we earnestly seek Him. Although faith does not eliminate problems it keeps us in a trusting relationship with God in the midst of problems.


Seventh-day Adventist educators seek to instill such faith in their students by demonstrating a life of faith. If you desire to grow your child’s faith relationship with God, enroll them in Christian education. Nothing is more secure or certain than that which you entrust to God.

GCC Schools and Philosophy

The Office of Education serves a total of 37 schools in Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee.  Our team is committed to supporting churches and schools as they prepare students for the kingdom and a joyful life of service as outlined in North American Division - "Journey to Excellence" and the Adventist EDGE call to action. Schools are accredited by various entities including state and private sectors.

In Georgia-Cumberland Conference, we value every child as a unique individual, created in the image of God with distinctive gifts, talents, and abilities. As Seventh-day Adventist educators, it is our belief that the work of true education is to equip students to think and to act with breadth of mind, clearness of thought, and the courage of their convictions. We believe that each child has a special purpose for being placed on this earth. With this in mind, we seek to provide every opportunity for the spiritual, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth of every student entrusted to our care. It is our fervent prayer and aim to perceive infinite possibilities in our students–inspiring them to love learning, respect others, and develop a character in the likeness of the Creator.
