Mission Statement

Jesus said to them, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind…And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

Matthew 22:37-39

GCHE Co-op operates as a Christ-centered organization and functions from within the Christian worldview. As such, the teachers and curricula covered will always follow the Christian viewpoint. Our mission is to:

  1. Provide a supplement to our families’ home teaching through a variety of educational and enrichment classes in a safe and loving environment.

  2. Strengthen Christian home educating families by providing times of close fellowship and interaction.

  3. Co-labor with each other under God’s direction to achieve excellence by serving each other through our strengths.

  4. Display the positive principles of home education to our community.

  • Christ-centered co-op -- We believe the Bible is the infallible word of God and strive to glorify Jesus Christ.

  • Safe and loving environment - We value unconditional love for and grace toward one another.

  • Fellowship - We desire close interaction to encourage and strengthen one another.

  • Co-laborers - We value the uniqueness each member brings.

  • Excellence by serving - God has given us an immense responsibility to teach our children in the way they should go. By drawing upon each other’s gifts and talents, we hope to provide quality educational experiences, lasting friendships, and precious memories for our members.

Statement of Faith

We believe that Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the verbally inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original writings, infallible, the final authority for faith and life. II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:21

We believe that there is one God who exists eternally as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30

We believe that Jesus Christ is God’s only Son. John 3:16

We believe that only Jesus Christ the Son lived a life without sin. All other people are sinners in need of salvation. Hebrews 4:15; Hebrews 7:26: Romans 3:23-24

We believe that Christ came to earth as a baby, born of a virgin, taking on the form of man without ceasing to be God, to be crucified in order to pay the penalty for our sins. Matthew 1:23;Isaiah 53:5,6; Ephesians 1:7

We believe that Christ died, was buried and then rose on the third day and ascended to Heaven. I Corinthians 15:3, 4; John 11:25: Luke 24:7

We believe that salvation is the gift of God given to men by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. John 3:16–19; John5:24; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:8,9; Ephesians 2:8,9; Titus 3:5

We believe God ordained and defined marriage as between one man and one woman (Gen. 2:18-25). We believe that God intends for sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and woman who are married to each other while pledging their mutual faithfulness (1 Cor. 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb. 13:4; 1 Thess. 4:3).

We believe in the sanctity of life (each child is a gift from God whose life begins at conception) and the protection of our children both before and after birth. Matthew 18:5,6; Mark 9:42; Luke 17:2
