From the President

Thank you for visiting the Grace Baptist College website. It is my distinct desire that you catch the spirit of our passion, position, perspective, and philosophy here at GBC through these pages.

Since the fall of 2003, we have endeavored not to compete with other Bible colleges and secular universities. While there is a great need for well-educated Christian professionals in every walk of life, our purpose is solely to train young people for full-time ministry.

At Grace Baptist College, we understand that God has chosen the local church to be His instrument for reaching this world. Our students are taught not only to study the ministry during the week, but also to be involved in the ministry during the weekend. Our students help in Sunday school classes, childrenís church, bus routes, retirement homes, and weekly outreach opportunities. Our goal is to develop Christian leaders who know the importance of serving.

Whether you are a prospective student, parent, pastor or youth pastor, teacher or school administrator, or just an interested Christian, it is my hope, and the hope of our great staff, that you would consider the contents herein and enable Grace Baptist College to be a part of your future plans for the training of the next generation of Godís servants.
