about us

"And He is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He might have the preeminence."

Colossians 1:18



Our dream is, as a church, to do what God has called us to do. He has given us a task to accomplish. We want to do His work effectively, to reach the goals He has laid before us. His approval is all that matters. Our only measure of success is for God to count us as an effective messenger of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


Our primary purpose is to glorify the Lord our God. We do this by cultivating the habit of including the Lord God in every segment of our church life, by refusing to expect or accept any of the glory that belongs to God, and by maintaining a prioity relationship with Him that is more important than any other on earth. 


Grace Community Church will minister to the total person. While we all come from different backgrounds and have different interests, we are unified by our belief in Jesus. So no matter who you are, you will fit in with us because our acceptance isn't based on who you are, our acceptance is based on who God is.
