At Grace Church we live our common life together through three essential values. Worship, Discipleship, and Mission.
The reason most Christians worship on Sunday morning is because we believe it was the day that Jesus Christ rose from the dead. In doing so he offered to everyone who believes in him forgiveness, new life and joyful service to God. Every Sunday morning we gather together to worship God and to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. On Sunday mornings our worship consists of hearing the bible read, preaching that is gospel centered, music that is joyful, openness to the work of Holy Spirit, and celebrating the Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion). Through these various acts we offer ourselves to God and in return He strengthens us in our faith.
At Grace Church our desire is to proclaim and live out the gospel in its fullness. We believe that Jesus offers to us forgiveness of our sins so that we can begin to walk as his disciples. This means that over time we will become more and more like Jesus in our thoughts, words and actions. This does not happen over night. Which is why we encourage spiritual formation both individually and corporately. Throughout the week we have various small groups and other gatherings to help people grow in their relationship with God.
To be a Christian is to be someone who reaches out to others with the good news of Jesus Christ. Our desire at Grace Church is to share the love of Christ and his gospel with those who do not yet know him. We believe that mission should be holistic serving both the body and the spirit.
