STATEMENT OF FAITH

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

I’m a little bit partial, as both my wife and I work for Grace and our son is a student there, but I am continually impressed by the warmth and care that we all receive from the staff, students all associated with Grace. This is truly a Christian community and we are proud to be a part of it. So if you are looking for an accredited Bible College in Grand Rapids Michigan make sure to pay them a visit.
