STATEMENT OF FAITH

 A statement of the doctrinal position to which the Board, Administration, and Faculty of Grace Christian University are committed.

I’ve never been a part of community of people that are so genuine and empathetic. It seems like no matter what staff and faculty have going on, they are always willing to stop what they are doing to help you. Everyone is really here to support and help one another. I can’t imagine myself anywhere else!
