Grace Community Church is made up of former rebels against God, saved by the grace of God through Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins. Loving Jesus, our mission is to make and grow disciples of Jesus with the gospel of grace.
Below is a brief summary of what we believe as a local church, but for a more thorough explanation, please explore the links above.
Grace Community Church believes in the triune God of the Bible: Father, Son, and Spirit – one nature in three persons. God is holy – distinct from his creation, without any imperfection or need, ruling over all things with complete righteousness, perfect goodness, and absolute control, ultimately for his glory.
About the Bible
The Bible is the authoritative, inerrant Word of God, for all people, at all times.
All mankind is created equally in God’s image, yet distinctly male and female. Tragically, all mankind is also rebellious against God and therefore justly deserving of God’s righteous judgment.
The gospel of Jesus Christ is God’s glorious, loving plan of salvation. Jesus Christ is God the Son. He took on a human nature and lived a perfect life in obedience to God. He died as a perfect substitute, fully absorbing the wrath of God for all who turn away from sin and turn to Jesus for forgiveness. Jesus rose bodily from the dead, ascended to heaven, now reigns over all things, and will return to establish the new heavens and new earth.
About the Holy Spirit
God the Spirit grants to sinners new life and unites them to Christ through faith, in accordance with God’s sovereign plan. The Spirit continues to dwell within believers, gradually growing them in holiness and empowering them with gifts to serve others, for the glory of God.
About the Church
We believe in the unity of the universal church (all those saved by Jesus Christ, throughout all the world, throughout all time) and in the indispensability of the local church. The local church consists of a specific group of Christians, cared for and governed by pastors and joined together to regularly receive and apply teaching from Scripture, to practice the biblical sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, and to participate together in the mission of the church. The mission of the church is to faithfully proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, grow in Christ-likeness, and seek to add disciples of Jesus Christ, all to the glory of God.
