Who We Are As A Church
Our Mission Is To Make Disciples...
Who exalt Christ
Live transformed lives
And embrace their community.
At Grace We Value...
JESUS OVER EVERYTHING
This is why we practice Bible-centered teaching and preaching and Christ-centered worship. All of our sermons and songs are from Scripture and about God, specifically his work in Christ Jesus. We believe that all of Scripture is about Jesus: the Old Testament predicts or prepares for Christ. The New Testament is a result or reflection of Christ.
2 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 4:12, John 12:32
Heart change that leads to life change
We believe God works from the inside out. God specializes in taking a heart of stone and replacing it with a heart of flesh. (Ezekiel 32) This is why we talk about positive life change. No one is too hard for God! It is also why we focus on grace-filled families and singles. God saves and keeps us by his grace, no matter our age or stage in life. It is also why we emphasize biblical fellowship, small groups of people (Life Groups) meeting around God’s Word holding one another accountable. It’s also why we’re convinced that God uses disciples to make disciples. One changed life dramatically affects another changed life.
Ephesians 2:8-10, Acts 2:42-47, 2 Timothy 2:2
OTHERS BEFORE OURSELVES
Jesus modeled servant leadership. He did not come to be served but to serve. He loved deeply. He served the disciples, washing their feet when they should have washed his. Jesus practiced servant evangelism, meeting a need so others could meet him. He taught and fed the crowds. Jesus practiced intercessory prayer, putting the needs of others ahead of his own.
Matthew 20:26-28, Matthew 25:35-36, James 5:16
