In a world where people often say “truth is relative,” GRACE holds fast to the absolute truth of God’s Word. We are passionate about engaging the next generation of ministry leaders with teaching centered on free grace and clear truth. Our teaching is grounded in a plain, normal, and literal interpretation of the Bible, so you can rest assured that His truth and His truth alone will provide the compass for your theological education.
We want you to learn where you live so you can serve where you are.
We know you’re already in the trenches doing ministry, and we don’t want you to put that kingdom work on hold. We want you to learn where you live so you can serve where you are. And we believe it’s actually important for you to have a life along the way, so we’ve created a program timeline that you can pursue at a manageable pace.
Using the best technology available today, we’ve taken the online learning experience to a whole new level, giving you the freedom to learn at home or anywhere there is an internet connection. You can stream classes live or view a class lecture later at your convenience. No matter where you are, we're just a click away.
We value stewardship, and we work hard to ensure that the investment you make in your education yields the highest return at the lowest possible cost. Due to the generous support of our ministry partners, approximately 90% of each student’s education is subsidized by the gifts of God’s people, allowing us to offer quality theological education with a tuition rate that is 60% less than the seminary average.
