We seek to know Jesus Christ and to make him known.
In Grace Community Church our heartbeat is sharing the love of our Triune God. Our hope is that as many people as possible experience freedom and transformation of living in relationship with Father, Son, & Spirit.
Grace Communion International places great emphasis on the gracious triune God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit). Our pastors and the people they serve point others toward the Triune God, helping them participate in the love and life of God, in union with Christ, by the Spirit.
We are inclusive informers, teachers, and pastor-theologians who pursue God’s Word (the Living Word, Jesus, revealed in the written Word, the Bible). It is our quest to follow where Jesus, by his Word and Spirit, leads.
We are passionate about equipping, training and proclaiming the relational nature of the triune God. Our goal is healthy churches who seek to be a part of God’s renewing work in the world.
We are intentional about developing leaders, and new and renewed churches that grow and multiply. In faith, we lead into the liberated love and life of the Father, Son and Spirit. Our consistent effort is high support with high challenge, grace always.
Grace Communion International is a trusted theological voice. We have shown ourselves willing to lose it all so that we may gain Christ. We seek to help those who join with us embrace and share the love of God in genuine ways.
Some people ask, “What are your distinctives—what makes you different, or superior?” The answer is that we aren’t in competition with other churches. We simply strive to be the healthiest expression of Christian church we can be. Through Jesus, by the Spirit, we seek to proclaim the Good News in all of our communication and in all the ways we interact with others. The Gospel about Jesus really is good news for everyone—that’s the message you will hear and experience in Grace Communion International.
We believe that theology should be rooted in the Bible, especially the New Testament. The theology we believe is often referred to as Trinitarian Theology due to its emphasis on the relational nature of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that theology should be rooted in the Bible, especially the New Testament. We see a reliable theology articulated by Irenaeus, Athanasius, Gregory Nazianzus, and more recently, Karl Barth, Thomas F. Torrance, and many others. This theology is often referred to as Trinitarian Theology due to its emphasis on the relational nature of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Our teachings include:
The Father, Son, and Spirit are one God, united in love for one another.
Jesus Christ, as the Word made flesh, is fully God and fully human.
Jesus accurately reveals the goodness and love of God, and reveals humanity as God intended us to be.
As our Creator, Jesus represented all humanity, and all people benefit from his vicarious humanity: his life, death, resurrection and ascension.Jesus Christ atoned for all sin and suffered its full consequence.
God has in Christ reconciled all humanity to himself through his son, Jesus (Colossians 1:20). (However, universal atonement should not be equated with universalism.)
The judgment of God against evil has been executed in Jesus Christ so that all might repent and receive forgiveness and, through the Holy Spirit, share in Christ’s resurrected, eternal life.
People are exhorted to respond to this reconciliation and participate in the life for which we were all created.
Jesus, as the nexus of divinity and humanity, has enabled humanity to participate in the life and love of the Trinity, which was God’s intent from before the beginning of time.If you are interested in a comprehensive look at Trinitarian Theology and what Grace Communion International teaches, read: The God Revealed In Jesus Christ and our full Statement of Beliefs.

Speaking of Life
If you’ve ever thought you’ve developed a better path forward than the one God has revealed, remember Jonah’s cautionary tale. He was so confident in how God “should” be acting, he nearly missed what God was doing – spoiler God’s agenda...
On July 5th we will hold our first in-person service since we closed down in March. Guests are always welcome at Grace Community Church! There is no dress code, so come dressed as you feel comfortable.
Safety measures to be implemented:
· * We have purchased hand sanitizer for use for all in the building.
· * Those attending will be asked to wear a mask. Some members don’t feel the need for a mask themselves but for love and unity of all those who are fearful or have an underlying health condition, everyone will wear a mask while in the building. (1 Cor. 8:9: “Be careful, however, that the exercise of your rights does not become a stumbling block to the weak.”)
· * Members and visitors will be reminded to maintain social distancing while conversing.
· * The kitchen area will be closed since it has been recommended that we not serve coffee or snacks for a while. (For those who want coffee please feel free to bring your own.)
· * Door handles will be wiped down often.
· * Seating will be spread out more. We have seating in the sanctuary for about 40 and our normal attendance is between 10 and 15 and we will ensure that people are sitting apart except for those in immediate families.
· * Our discipleship room is smaller so we will have our discipleship class in the sanctuary.
· * Communion will be served using the pre-filled cups/wafers.
· * Offerings will continue to be online giving for the majority except for those without computers. They can bring their offering with them or mail it to our treasurer.
· * We can continue to sing as long as we are wearing a mask.
Children in attendance: Our children's ministry is on hold for a while. Children should stay with parents for the service.
Guests are always welcome at Grace Community Church! There is no dress code, so come dressed as you feel comfortable. We offer coffee and refreshments before and after the service and look forward to connecting with you.
Grace Community Church offers a discipleship class beginning at 10 am lasting for 45 minutes. Our worship services begin at 11am and usually last 60 - 75 minutes. We begin with a call to worship, announcements and intercessory prayer, followed by a a time of singing and scripture reading. Then an inspiring message about the hope of Jesus is shared by one of our pastors or elders.
Every six weeks we have a slightly different format with songs and readings based on a specific theme followed by a pot luck meal.
