Grace United exists to help others find their way back to God and follow Jesus to a new life.
Our goal is to be helpers. In Luke chapter 5, we read a story about some men who carried their sick friend to the top of a house and lowered him through the roof so that Jesus could heal him. We want to be friends like that.
We were also once sick and someone helped us find Jesus and the healing that only he can bring. We have all lost our way. We're all created in God's Image and have the opportunity to return to a right relationship with God through Jesus.
The way back to God is clear, but we need some help along the way. We need some directions for this life. Jesus offers us the help we need to live life to the fullest. By studying his life and teachings, through living life together, and with the help of the Holy Spirit, we can find new life in Jesus.
We seek to help others find God and follow Jesus, as others have helped us.
WHO WE ARE
Our values make us who we are. We Value:
The Bible: "The Truth will set you free." We believe that the Holy Scriptures are the Old and New Testaments, the inspired and infallible Word of God, and therein is found the only reliable guide of Christian faith and conduct. Everything we do must be rooted in scripture. The Bible is the final word.
Authenticity: Be Real Because Jesus is Real. We believe that God wants to use you and use us, not who we want to be, or are trying to be, but who we are today. We don't have to pretend to be something we are not, God knows us and loves us! Being fake only hurts you and everyone around you. Be real with God and you will find God will be a real difference.
Purpose: God has a plan, so should we. The mission of the church is too important to leave to chance. We strive to meet goals and fulfill the ministries of the church as God provides and leads us. We don't do this haphazardly but strategically as God leads through His Holy Spirit.
Excellence: God Deserves Our Best. There is no such thing as good enough when it comes to serving Jesus. Everything that we do reflects upon God, so in everything we do we want to make God look good. This goes from how we take care of the property of the church to how we sing a song. God deserves our best!
Relationships: We Need Each Other. In the very beginning God saw that it was not good for Man to be alone. We need ever growing relationships in order to grow into the people that God created us to be. Accountability, trust, and help are all essential to being followers of Jesus.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that there is only one true, living and eternal God and that the Godhead is revealed as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
About the Bible
We believe that the Holy Scriptures are the Old and New Testaments; the inspired and infallible Word of God and, therein, is found the only reliable guide of Christian faith and conduct.
We believe that God created man in His own image to bring Him honor through obedience and that when man disobeyed, he became a fallen and sinful creature, unable to save himself. We believe that infants are in the covenant of God’s grace and that all persons become accountable to God when they reach a state of moral responsibility.
We believe that salvation (regeneration, sanctification, justification and redemption) has been provided for all mankind through the redemptive work (life, death, resurrection, ascension and intercession) of Jesus Christ, and that this salvation can be received only through repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
About Assurance and Endurance
We believe that those who abide in Christ have assurance of salvation. However, we believe that the Christian retains his freedom of choice; therefore, it is possible for him to turn away from God and be finally lost.
About the Christian Life
We believe that Christians should live faithfully by serving in and through the local church, praying diligently, witnessing earnestly, practicing tolerance, showing loving kindness, giving as God prospers and conducting themselves in such a way as to bring glory to God.
About the Church
We believe that the church universal is the body of Christ, the fellowship of all believers, and that its members have been called out from the world to come under the dominion and authority of Christ, its head. We believe that a local church is a fellowship of Christians, a part of the Body of Christ, voluntarily banded together for worship, nurture and service.
We believe that baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances instituted by Christ to be observed by Christians only. We also believe that the Biblical mode of baptism is immersion and the participation in the Lord’s Supper
should be open to all Christians.
We believe in the sanctity of the Lord’s Day, the first day to the week, and that this day ought to be observed by worshiping God, witnessing for Christ, and ministering to the needs of humanity. We believe that secular work on Sunday should be limited to cases of necessity or mercy.
About the Last Things
We believe in the personal return of Jesus Christ, and in the bodily resurrection of the dead. We believe that God will judge all mankind by Jesus Christ; that He will reward righteous with eternal life in heaven and that He will banish the unrighteous to everlasting punishment in hell.
