Message From the President
Grace Christian University (formerly Grace Bible College) is an incredible place. As president of Grace, I am excited to welcome you to experience a life-transforming education.
The Grace Christian University faculty, staff, and students are committed to being a growing community. By that, we mean that each of us, starting with the president, realizes that we are still in process. We are not all that God designed and purposed us to be, nor are we content with our current condition. Through competent instructors committed to academic excellence, and staff and administration committed to serving and growing, we believe Grace Christian University can be used by God to change your life!
The prevalent mentality of the day is intent on tolerance and policing certain words and activities deemed inappropriate or incorrect according to their own vacillating set of values. Grace Christian University believes that the eternal truths and values of the Word of God, rightly divided, are principles that pervade all areas of life and education.
The Apostle Paul states, “For in Him all things were created both in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together… so that He Himself might come to have first place in everything” (Colossians 1:16-18). I would conclude from the above Scripture that Jesus Christ is to be the center of life, speech, values, service, education, and social relationships. The world we live in and its present crises are evidence of what happens when education and life are no longer Christ-centered. There is no values-free education, it is all taught from a particular worldview. I believe it is vital for our students to be educated from a biblical worldview that prepares them for their careers, vocations, or further education with God’s values and purposes in view.
Grace Christian University is committed to preparing leaders to be all that God wants them to be, educationally, socially, physically, and spiritually. If that’s your heart’s desire, then Grace is the place for you!
