About the Bible
The Bible is God’s written revelation of Himself. It is complete, supernaturally inspired, and without error. Therefore, it is and will remain the center of all Christian existence and experience and the rule by which all human action, beliefs, and opinions will be measured.
There is one living and true God. He is an infinite, intelligent, eternal, Spirit being who made and rules over heaven and earth. Among His many attributes, He is holy, good, righteous, pure, and perfect. God, Jesus Christ His Son, and the Holy Spirit are three equal but distinct persons.
About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is a divine person, equal with God and Jesus Christ, His Son. He was active in creation, convicts of sin, guides people into the Truth, and matures the believer in Christ.
Satan was once a holy angel who enjoyed the privileges of heaven. Through pride and personal ambition, however, he fell and is now the unholy god of this world. He is the author of the powers of darkness and destined to final defeat at the hands of Jesus Christ.
The salvation of people is completely the work of God’s grace. Through Christ’s voluntary death on the cross, subsequent burial, and literal resurrection, a way to the Father was created. Christ offers salvation to any and all who will confess their sins and place their faith and trust in Him for eternal life. Jesus provides the only access to the Father and heaven. And though we are saved by grace alone, evidence of salvation will be visible as we remain in Him.
About the Church
The church is a congregation of baptized believers connected by their faith in God and their allegiance to Christ. Two ordinances are to be observed by the local church: baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Our mission at Grace is to make and grow believers in Christ who worship God, minister His Word, and serve others.
The Great Commission Jesus gave in Matthew 28:19,20 serves as the unmistakable theme of His missionary vision. Missions, then, is taking the good news of God to people of all nations, teaching and growing them in Christian maturity.
