At Grace Community Church you will find people from different walks of life who have been joined together by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Together our mission is to build a local church that is committed to glorifying God by faithfully teaching God's Word, discipling believers, and proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world.
What does this look like?
This happens in our Sunday morning meetings by our worshipping God together and through the preaching of God's word; in our community groups by applying the teaching of the Bible to our lives and building friendships with each other; in our evangelistic outreaches by sharing the gospel of Christ that has so changed our lives.
In every area of our lives, both publicly and privately, we want to live the reality of the gospel in authentic, genuine ways.
The following are a number of values that we enjoy.
Above all else, our desire here at Grace Community Church is to glorify God in what we do and who we are. What does it mean to glorify God? It means to have an ever-deepening love for Him. It means living with humble thankfulness for what He has done for us through the cross of Christ. It also means seeking to live our lives by His grace in order to please Him and demonstrate His love to others.
We treasure the Bible as God's inspired Word and gladly submit to its authority. Because we believe that the Bible is sufficient to direct us in every area of life, Bible study and scriptural application are vital to how we walk out our faith and care for one another.
Encountering the Holy Spirit
Like Christians throughout the ages, we have a great need for the dynamic power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. The Spirit counsels us, comforts us and convicts us of sin so that we might grow in faith and better live to please Christ. As we experience His presence we are refreshed and encouraged and our passion for Him grows.
In our increasingly fragmented culture, meaningful relationships are becoming more and more difficult to maintain. God has designed the church; however, to be a lasting answer to this problem - a family of friends who care for one another and overcome the differences that keep people apart. Whether it is building lifelong friendships, reaching out to someone who is not like us or working to resolve conflicts with biblical integrity, genuine relationships are an integral part of the church.
On a Mission
For a church to have the impact that God intends, it must have a mission. Whether through church planting, evangelistic teams, or community outreach efforts, we long to see the gospel transform lives in our own neighborhoods, throughout the region, and even to the ends of the earth.
