General Information About Grace College and Theological Seminary
Grace College is an evangelical Christian community of higher education which applies biblical values in strengthening character, sharpening competence, and preparing for service. Grace Theological Seminary is a learning community dedicated to teaching, training, and transforming the whole person for local church and global ministry. At Grace, the students, administration, faculty, and staff aim together to make Christ preeminent in all things. Students learn this by living, studying, working, worshipping and achieving academic success with other young people who share similar Christian ideals in a setting where the community lifestyle fosters devotion to serious academic inquiry, wholesome recreation and relaxation, and mature spiritual growth. Read our Doctrinal Statement t the heart of a Grace education are academically challenging courses that are specifically designed to foster a thirst for character, competence, and service within the hearts and minds of our students. Every student at Grace completes a series of general education courses (we call it the Grace Core) and thus enjoys a common experience that stretches across all the disciplines. Explicitly taught from a liberal arts approach, these courses are driven by the mission and evangelical heritage of the college, and have been created around four key human relationships: with God, with others, with self, and with the world, which includes both cultures and the environment. We believe that worshipping 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 that emphasizes the integration of faith and learning lays the foundation for and is in perfect concert with our mission. At Grace, 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, our professional lives become an offering of worship to God, and our faith gives 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.
