What We Believe
Grace University is a non-denominational Christian Institute that holds a charismatic-evangelical theology. Our beliefs are firmly rooted in the theology of the Reformation, while fully embracing contemporary ministry of the Holy Spirit and all His gifts.
1. The Bible: We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, divinely inspired; that it contains no errors in the original manuscripts and was preserved by God for us.
2. The Trinity: We believe that God exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are one God.
3. God: We believe God created the universe by His Power and Word. We believe that God is all-knowing, all-powerful and ever present.
4. Jesus Christ: We believe Jesus Christ was sent by God the Father into the world to save sinners.
5. The Holy Spirit: We believe the Holy Spirit is a person, is God, and has all the divine characteristics.
6. Creation: We believe in the Biblical six literal day account of the creation of the physical universe and man. This account is a literal, historical account of the direct, immediate creative acts of God without any evolutionary process.
7. Human Beings: We believe human was originally created by a direct work of God and not from previously existing forms of life. Man was created perfect and made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character.
8. Redemption: We believe that the saved have been redeemed, in that the price that our sin demanded has been paid. It means that not only did Christ pay the price for our sin but also removed us from the marketplace of sin.
9. Salvation: Salvation is God's free gift to all. We receive this gift through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ alone.
10. Eternal Life: We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal damnation.
11. Historicity: We believe in the full historicity of the Scriptural record of primeval history. We believe the Bible is the Word of God because of its scientific accuracy.
12. Satan: We believe that Satan is a fallen angel, the author of sin, and cause of the fall; that he is the open and declared enemy of God and man; and that he shall be eternally punished in the Lake of Fire.
