Educational Values & Mission
Our Mission as a Christian College Online
We are a Christ-centered community of higher education applying biblical values in strengthening character, sharpening competence, and preparing for service.
Our Core Values
Our courses encourage students to engage with the world around them through participation in events and organizations that glorify God. We develop students who are good stewards of their resources and value service.
Colossians 3:23 – “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.”
We value other people by serving them and walking alongside them in their lives as image-bearers of God.
Ephesians 4:2 – “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.”
Our students thrive in their relationship with God and the Church. We believe a relationship with God has the power to transform everything.
2 Corinthians 3:18 – “And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”
We want to live in a Christ-like manner in every single way. Grace College endeavors to develop students who view their whole lives as an opportunity to bring glory to God.
Colossians 1:16-17 – “For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him, all things hold together.”
Our Brand Promise
Grace College is a Christ-centered community engaged in thoughtful scholarship and career preparation that develops compassionate, confident, and skilled graduates who lead lives of purpose.
Our Doctrinal Statement
Grace College Online cares deeply about our educational values. Our students, administration, faculty, and staff aim to make Christ preeminent in all things. Students learn this by studying, working, and achieving academic success with other young people who share similar Christian ideals.

Our Educational Approach
We believe that worshiping God, growing as individuals, relating with others and serving in our world are the key to unlocking an academic experience that strengthens character, sharpens competence, and prepares for service. We also believe that an education emphasizing the integration of faith and learning lays the foundation for our mission. We are committed to lives of worship and spiritual growth, and we look for practical ways the Christian faith intersects with the disciplines we teach in the classroom.
