Grace Church Beliefs

We Are All Called to Step Into our God-given Destiny and Heal a Broken World

Jesus called the Church to make followers and multiply. At Grace, we do this in a unique way by defining these two biblical truths and putting them into action:

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

Specifically, we believe that God is calling us as a church, and you as an individual to begin to heal the six broken places of our world.

What Grace Church Believes About...


Who is 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.

Who are You?

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.

Who is Jesus?

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.

What is the Kingdom of God? 

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.

What is 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.

What is the 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.

Who is the 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.

What is the 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.

What is Baptism? 

We believe baptism is a public way to profess your faith around your community. When you become a Christian, you die to your old way of life and you begin a whole new life. Romans 6:8 states, “Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.” The very act of baptism is a picture of what happens to you spiritually, being completely submerged and rising out of the waters proclaiming your new life. Baptism is not the only way we profess to be a Christian, but it is a significant way.
