The GLCC Mission Statement says: Great Lakes Christian College, a college affiliated with Christian Churches/Churches of Christ, seeks to glorify God by preparing students to be servant-leaders in the church and world. Knowledge of the contents of the Bible is fundamental for both our own relationship with God and our service to the body of Christ. It forms the basis for our understanding of God himself, our relationship to him and to others and the world around us. It is our guide for faith, practice, and service. To these ends, this course seeks to provide the student with foundational knowledge regarding the content and background of the NT Epistles, a foundation upon which the student will continue to build throughout the course of his or her life through personal and/or professional studies. 

According to its author, the Gospel of John was written so that those who would read it “may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in his name,” (20:31). Ministry to the church is an overflow of our relationship with God. We lead and serve out of a sense of calling and accountability, both of which find their source in God himself. Therefore, the performance, quality and ultimate success of the individual servant/leader will be determined primarily by the quality of the relationship between that person and God. Through an in depth study of the writings of John, it is our goal to strengthen and enhance the student’s relationship with God in order to produce effective servant/leaders.
