What We Believe

What We Believe

We know that the world is broken: For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Romans  8:22

We also know that every human has a calling. For we are God's masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10

We believe that God is calling us as a church and you as an individual to step into your destiny and begin to heal the broken places. 

We Believe in Healing The Six Broken Places of this World

Separation

When the world is broken, we see that human beings are alienated from God and lost.

Where the Kingdom of God is evident, we find human beings who have repented, been forgiven, and adopted as children of God through faith in Jesus Christ. God calls Ambassadors to help bring people back to God.

Pain

When the world is broken, we see that human beings’ bodies, minds, and spirits are broken.

Where the Kingdom of God is evident, we discover physical, psychological, and relational wellness being restored and pain being healed. God calls Healers to help others be free from pain and suffering.

Isolation

When the world is broken, we see that human beings are alone and lacking love.

Where the Kingdom of God is evident, we find people, once alone and isolated, now discovering relationship, mercy, and love in community with others. God calls Nurturers to draw others into a loving community.

Hatred

When the world is broken, we see that human beings alienate and dehumanize each other resulting in discrimination, racism, war, and genocide.

Where the Kingdom of God is evident, we notice people from diverse ethnicities, nations, and people groups living and loving in community. God calls Activists to end hatred, racism, discrimination, bigotry, prejudice, and intolerance.

Decay

When the world is broken, we see that the physical creation is deteriorating and “groaning” because of abuse and neglect by human beings.

Where the Kingdom of God is evident, we observe the planet itself being cared for, the decay of God's "very good" world halted. God calls Stewards to bring renewal to our beautiful planet.

Injustice

When the world is broken, we see injustice abounding everywhere resulting in systems of poverty, hunger, disease, and slavery among others.

Where the Kingdom of God is evident, we rejoice over seeing vast systems of human poverty, misery, and brokenness coming to an end. God calls Champions to see that wrongs are righted and suffering ends.

Grace Church's Beliefs

God

We believe there is only one true God who is eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing, just and loving. We believe that God purposefully created the world and is personally engaged in the lives of human beings.

Humanity

We believe that every person is uniquely created in the image of God but, through sinful disobedience, is broken and has alienated themselves from God, others and the creation. The result is that every person is in need of healing and reconciliation.

Jesus Christ

We believe that God entered the world in human form in the person of Jesus Christ; Jesus Christ is both fully human and completely God. Jesus alone reconciled us with God, revealed God’s character and inaugurated God’s Kingdom.

Kingdom

We believe that God’s kingdom is the sum of His purposes and hopes for this world. The Kingdom is realized as Christ’s disciples commit themselves to His mission. We anticipate a future time when Jesus will return to complete the mission of God on earth.

Salvation

We believe that through faith in Jesus’ life, death and resurrection our sinful disobedience is forgiven and that through repentance and surrender to God we are reconciled to him for this life and eternity.

Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is God’s indwelling presence: the source of power, guidance and conviction in the life of a follower of Christ.

Church

We believe the Church is the universal community of all Christ followers. The Church finds its best expression in unique, local communities of Christ-followers united for the purpose of evidencing the values of the Kingdom of God in the world.

Bible

We believe that the Bible was written by human authors under the supernatural inspiration of God and is our authority for all matters of faith and practice.
