What We Believe

Grace Christian Church (GCC) is a place where people of diverse backgrounds can come together as an extended family to experience God’s presence through worship, prayer, and insightful practical Bible teaching and preaching. GCC is dedicated to reaching the community with the gospel of Jesus Christ, as well as providing specified ministries of excellence to our children and teens.

GCC serves to enable people to come into an ever-growing personal relationship with God.

1. We believe the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired, infallible, and able to transform the lives of those who hear, read, meditate, and practically apply it:

Joshua 1:7; 8 Psalm 1:1-3; Matthew 7:24-27;
John 6:63; II Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12, 13; James 1:22-25

2. We believe that man is lost and destined to spend eternity in hell without the intervention of a loving and kind God, who sent His Son Jesus, to provide the only way for man to enter into relationship with God the Father:

Romans 5:12; Romans 3:23; I Corinthians 15:21-22;
John 1:10-13; John 3:3; John 3:16-18; John 14:6;
Ephesians 2:1-6; Colossians 2:13; Romans 10:8-10;
II Corinthians 5:17-18

3. We believe that prayer is our avenue of communication and fellowship with God. Through prayer, we receive answers from our Heavenly Father as we bring our requests to Him in Jesus Name:

II Chronicles 7:14; Matthew 6:5-13; Matthew 7:7-8;
I Thessalonians 5:17; James 5:13-18; I John 5:14-15

4. We believe in the indwelling, baptism, presence, power, ministry, and gifts of the Holy Spirit:

Zechariah 4:6; John 14:16-17 & 26; John 16:13-14;
John 20:22; Acts 1:4-8; Acts 2:2-4; Acts 8:4-17;
Acts 10:44-47; I Corinthians 12:1-7; I Corinthians 14:1-32

5. We believe in the Spirit-led, Spirit-filled, scriptural based worship in both congregational and personal life is essential to experiencing God’s presence.

Psalms 95:6-7; John 4:23-24; Revelation 4:10; Revelation 5:14; Revelation 11:16; Revelation 14:7

6. We believe that loving relationships should permeate every area of church life. Our relationships with God, spouse, family, church family, and those outside the family of God, should be motivated by the unconditional agape love of God:

Luke 10:25-37; John 13:34-35; Galatians 6:1-2; Romans 12:17-21

7. We believe in the spiritual growth of every believer, in fruitfulness toward the goal of Christ-likeness, and the numerical growth of the church as we reach the lost of our community through creative outreach:

John 15:1-8; Acts 2:41, 47; John 4:4; Galatians 4:19;
Galatians 5:22-23

8. We believe in the value, ministry, giftedness and priesthood of every believer:

Luke 7:28; II Corinthians 5:17-20; Romans 12:6-8;
Hebrews 10:23-35; I Peter 4:10; Revelation 1:6
