- For Teachers
I have always believed that we say "on purpose" not "in purpose".

You can use 'in purpose', but not as a substitute for 'on purpose'

Jimmy Wales set out to build a massive online encyclopedia ambitious in purpose and unique in design
'The secret of success is constancy of purpose.' - Benjamin Disraeli. Here you could use 'in' instead of 'of'.
Your purpose is your aim or intention. As the object of a preposition it becomes part of an adverbial.
