We are an unashamedly Christian program and our biblical perspective is woven through every aspect of a student’s experience here. Even though KCGA operates under a faith-based distinctive, students are never forced to accept our religious beliefs in order to participate in the program. Furthermore, staff are not allowed to offer favors or privilege to students that say that they have become a believer. This type of spiritual manipulation would only promote surface level faith, lacking authenticity, and would work against our goal to help young ladies find true freedom from life-controlling issues.
The religious principals that are promoted and modeled at KCGA foster an environment of peace, fulfillment, respect, and honor. We recognize that every student in our care is God’s creation and therefore worthy of respect regardless of their acceptance/rejection of our beliefs.
Statement of Faith:
WE BELIEVE…The Scriptures are inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.
WE BELIEVE…There is only One True God–revealed in three persons … Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).
WE BELIEVE…In the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God’s son, Jesus is both human and divine.
WE BELIEVE…though originally good, Man Willingly Fell to Sin–ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
WE BELIEVE…Every Person Can Have Restored Fellowship with God through ‘Salvation’ (trusting Christ, through faith and repentance, to be our personal Savior).
WE BELIEVE… in Water Baptism by Immersion after repenting of one’s sins and receiving Christ’s gift of salvation, and Holy Communion as a symbolic remembrance of Christ’s suffering and death for our salvation.
WE BELIEVE…that the gifts of the spirit are still in operation today.
WE BELIEVE …Teen Challenge, as a para-church organization, is responsible to the Great Commission to save the lost, make disciples, and send them out.
