About Us

Our lives have been changed by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Each Sunday morning we gather together to express our heartfelt gratitude and love for our Savior, in a service of celebration. Our Sunday Service provides the context where we worship God together and hear the word of God proclaimed and taught as we grow in our mission as a Church.

What We Believe

At Grace Community Church, we hold fast to the historic orthodox doctrines of the Christian faith including the Trinity, the full deity and humanity of Jesus Christ, justification by faith, the authority of Scripture etc.

Furthermore, we are:

  • Reformed in our understanding of salvation
  • Baptistic in our understanding of baptism
  • Continuationist/Charismatic in our understanding and practice of the spiritual gifts
  • Complementarian in our understanding of gender distinction and roles

Additionally, we affirm the Local and Extra-Local Polity contained in the Sovereign Grace Book of Church Order


 Statement of Faith

Our denomination, Sovereign Grace Churches, is a confessional family of churches. 

At the heart of our union is the truth of God’s Word that we believe, cherish, and proclaim together. While the Bible is our only infallible rule of faith and practice, we are also committed—and accountable—to a specific statement of faith that represents a summary of the teaching of Holy Scripture on key points of doctrine essential to the beliefs, conduct, and witness of our churches.” – Sovereign Grace Website
