We do believe that a church's membership should share a firm commitment to a number of areas that constitute the "core" of the faith (the "majors"). These would certainly include, though not necessarily be limited to, the Godhead (the Trinity), the nature of Jesus Christ, His work in providing substitutionary atonement in His death and resurrection, salvation by faith apart from human effort, and a commitment to the full inspiration and authority of the Scriptures. We welcome the opportunity to discuss these or other areas with you.
Our Mission statement
Grace exists to develop Biblically grounded followers of Christ who:
- Exalt the living God in worship
- Explore the Word of God in study
- Encourage the family of God in fellowship
- Extend the love of God in outreach
Grace Community Church is committed to helping people become followers of Christ. You will find that we teach the Bible passionately because we believe the key to life change is the truth of the Word of God. Whether you're a family, a single person, student or young adult, we can help you find the meaning and purpose of your life.
Grace Community Church is part of the Fellowship of Evangelical Churches (FEC). For more information on the FEC, you may visit their website here.
Jesus told us, "...a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth." (John 4:23-24) This is the goal of our worship ministry at Grace--to worship God in spirit, engaging our emotions and all that is within us, and to worship Him in truth, as we learn more about Him and His Word.
While we desire to worship as a lifestyle, music is a core part of worship. One of our corporate values is celebrative worship, and so we sing today's contemporary songs of celebration using multiple instruments and vocalists. But we also value the rich teaching heritage and depth of the timeless hymns of the faith, and so our worship leader will frequently include creative traditional as well as contemporary music. Everyone worships in his or her own unique way--for many that means singing and clapping along, and for others it means quietly reflecting on the words. You're encouraged to do whatever makes you feel most comfortable.
