STATEMENT OF FAITH

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

I was very intimidated about returning back to school. As a mother of four, working two jobs, & volunteering in our community, I thought it would be impossible to complete my education. The flexibility of the online classes has been, by far, one of the greatest choices I have ever made.
