At Grace Fellowship, we strive for excellence in all that we do.
We desire to be…
- a church where integrity, honesty, and caring are of the utmost importance.
- a church that exalts the Lord by exalting His Word…the Bible.
- a church that never separates the need to both share God’s love and hope, while teaching individual members how to continue in a victorious life through Jesus Christ.
We see ourselves as a non-traditional church where everyone will feel welcome and where today’s Christian can express their faith. A church with an easy-going atmosphere, casual to semi-dress, meaning come as you are. Our praise team brings a blend of contemporary praise and worship, classic choruses, and hymns that create an atmosphere where people can connect with God, singing praises and entering into His presence to worship Him.
Our doctrine is sound, Christian and solid–and we would be glad to sit down and show you what we believe. Because we are non-denominational, we have a saying at Grace about our Biblical views:
On the essentials of Christianity we are in unity, on the non-essentials we have liberty.
This is why Christians from many different backgrounds can love and serve one another at Grace Fellowship Church.
Grace Fellowship Church was founded in 1991 by a small group of families who began meeting in a home. This group had a vision to see their families grow as Christians, and to help others come to Jesus Christ, and follow Him.
We encourage every Christian, married or single, young or senior, to be part of a loving church family. There is no substitute for the joy and strength that comes from brothers and sisters in Christ who care about you and your spiritual growth.
Jesus said, “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another.”
– John 13:35
What to Expect
At Grace Fellowship Church we believe in the body of Christ meeting together as often as possible. Our services are held on Sunday mornings starting at 10AM with Bible Study, and 11AM for our main Worship Service. We meet Sunday evenings as well for Night Church Family Bible Study at 6:30PM and Wednesday nights at 6:30PM where the family can branch off and learn applicable studies for their season of life and age group.
Our preaching is fresh and exciting, easy to understand and applicable to everyday life.
For the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.
– Ephesians 4:12-13
Our blend of contemporary and classic praise and worship music and hymns exalt Christ.
Speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father;
– Ephesians 5:19-20
At Grace Fellowship Church, our purpose is to:
- To Seek God with all of our heart and to Seek the lost with all of our strength…
- To bring people to Jesus and membership in his family,
- Develop them to Christ-like maturity,
- And equip them for their ministry in the church and life mission in the world,
- In order to Glorify the name of the God we love!
- To take the overlooked and passed over
- And make them into Mighty Soldiers of the Kingdom!
The gates of Hell will not prevail against the Church…
What we believe:
In essential beliefs we have unity.
We are all one body, we have the same Spirit, …there is only one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and there is only one God and Father, who is over us all and in us all and living through us all.
– Ephesians 4:4-6, NLT
In non-essential beliefs —we have liberty.
Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters…Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls… So then each of us will give account of himself to God…So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God.
– Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22, LB
In all our beliefs —we show love.
If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I knew all the mysteries of the future and knew everything about everything, but didn’t love others, what good would I be? And if I had the gift of faith so that I could speak to a mountain and make it move, without love I would be no good to anybody.
– 1 Corinthians 13:2, NLT
The Essentials We Believe:
God is the Creator and the Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are distinct, yet fully God and are one God.
About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God. Being of one substance with the Father, Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice to atone for the sins of humanity by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended into Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to the earth to reign as King of kings and the Lord of lords.
About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit, being of one substance with the Father and the Son of God, is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with the power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is godly. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.
About the Bible
The Bible is God’s Word to all men. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of the truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.
Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. He is the supreme object of God’s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called sin. This attitude separates man from God.
Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvements or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into their life by faith.
About Eternal Security
Because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in his salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security.
Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation.
To be eternally separated from God is to be banished to a place called Hell. Because those in Hell have rejected God’s offer of forgiveness and reconciliation through Jesus Christ, none of the goodness of God is present. Hell is therefore a place of eternal darkness, loneliness, torment and unquenchable thirst
To be eternally in union with God is to have eternal life in a place called Heaven. Heaven is described in the Bible as a place of light, beautiful, mysterious and full of life. There is no more death or crying or pain.
Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.
