CCS was founded in 1972 as a ministry of Whites Chapel Baptist Church (now CrossPoint Community Church). Coosa Christian shares a campus with CrossPoint Community Church. Located at 2734 Wills Creek Road. Our students come from Gadsden and the surrounding counties of Etowah, Blount, Calhoun, Cherokee, Dekalb, St. Clair, & Marshall.
Coosa Christian School exists to challenge young people to know Jesus Christ as Lord, to develop a biblical world view of life, to love others as themselves, to become contributing citizens, increase knowledge and acquire skills necessary to serve others.
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about these things.”
– PHILIPPIANS 4:8
Coosa Christian School’s vision is to provide a safe place for those desiring the highest standards in academics, activities, and athletics in which Christ is the foundation. CCS has a goal to equip our students with the character and skills needed to serve others. Our desire is to “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
“Where there is no vision, the people perish…”
- CCS is committed to the highest values spiritually and academically. We strive to encourage our children to excel to their best abilities with the Scripture being the basis of our teaching. We teach a Bible-based, Biblical world view curriculum to solidify a spiritual foundation in each student.
- CCS is committed to maintaining Christ as the foundation for Education. We will communicate to every student about His love for all and about His character. We believe that Christ is the Lord of all and choose to listen to the calling and leadership He has for CCS.
- CCS is committed to Integrity.
As Christians, we believe we should teach our students to have high moral principles and learn to be responsible. CCS is committed to have a family relationship. Our desire is to strengthen the relationships within our school and church families.
Purpose Statement: Biblical Worldview
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit-these three being identical in essence, equal in power and glory and possessing precisely the same attributes and perfections.
The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Divine Person who convicts the world of sin, that He alone brings new life to those who are spiritually dead, and that He baptizes (or places) all believers into the one true Church, the Body of Christ, that He indwells them permanently, seals them unto the day of redemption, bestows spiritual gifts upon them and fills those who are yielded to Him.
The Condition of Man
We believe that man was created in the image and the likeness of God in innocence and without sin, but that in Adam’s sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, became spiritually dead, and alienated from God and now man in and of himself is incapable of remedying his lost and depraved condition.
The Holy Scriptures
We believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the verbally inspired Word of God, written by men under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit in the original manuscripts, and the final authority in faith and life.
The Person and Work of Christ
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became a man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit, and born of a virgin, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man. This redemption He accomplished by voluntarily giving Himself as a substitutionary sacrifice for our sins on the cross, thereby satisfying God’s righteous judgments against sin. After substantiating the accomplishment of redemption by His bodily resurrection from the grave, He ascended to the right hand of His Father where He intercedes on behalf of those who trust Him.
We believe that salvation is the gift of God’s grace, freely bestowed upon all who believe by faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ at Calvary, apart from human meritorious work. All who so trust the Savior are forgiven of their sins and born into the family of God by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit.
