Since 1996, this vision has guided Grace Church:
To partner with God in transforming people from unbelievers to fully devoted disciples of Jesus to the glory of God.
Our vision leads to 4 key implications:
To partner with God... Jesus came to Earth to reveal God to us, to be “God with skin on.” Now we partner with God to be “Jesus with skin on” to others. Throughout history, God has chosen to work through His people. It is a joint venture where we follow God and work with God to help people experience God’s grace and salvation.
Transforming people... Our focus is transforming lives. We partner with God to take people from where they are into who God created them to be. Taking broken lives and transforming them into a new creation that is growing toward healing and wholeness.
From unbelievers to fully devoted disciples of Jesus... Some who come to the church do not know God. Others come with a relationship with God. No matter where they are in their walk with God there is always room to grow. It is an ongoing growing process toward becoming a fully devoted disciple. What is a fully devoted disciple? A fully devoted disciple is a person who has taken up their cross and follows Jesus...every part of their lives fully devoted to following Jesus.
