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 stepping into their world to serve and walk 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 relationships with God and with 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 lives that are Christ-like 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 Educational Values

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 and is in perfect concert with our mission. We are committed to a life of worship and spiritual growth, and actively look for reflective and practical ways the Christian faith intersects with the disciplines we teach in the classroom.

The integration of faith and learning is based on the shared understanding that the extent to which we do our work consciously as Christians, results in our professional lives becoming an offering of worship to God, and our faith giving greater significance to the questions we struggle with in our work and in our lives. In other words, we are whole individuals and recognize the deficiency of a compartmentalized life. Based on this foundation, our faith informs our work and makes it distinctive.
