Captain Gilmer School is dedicated to “Defining Excellence” in Seventh-day Adventist Education by challenging all students to reach their personal best and discover God’s purpose for their lives.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church recognizes God as the ultimate source of existence and truth.
In the beginning God created in His image a perfect humanity, a perfection later marred by sin.
Through Christ and His Spirit God determined to restore humanity from its lost state.
Through the Bible He has revealed His will to the world, a revelation that supersedes human reason.
Through his Church on earth, He seeks the lost for His kingdom.
The basic tenets of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, as well as the inspired writings of Ellen White, are directed toward God’s restorative plan for fallen humanity.
The Church conducts its own system of education to engender belief in these tenets, within the context of one’s personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and to foster a desire to share that relationship with others.
