From time to time I need to remind myself of the foundation beneath all that we are doing as a church.

Our life and ministry is grounded in the belief that life, true life, begins with Jesus Christ. Knowing Him, serving Him, following Him and worshiping Him are the foundations for discovering the abundant life He promised.

Grace Presbyterian Church is committed to following Jesus as we respond to His great commandment ( to love the Lord our God and our neighbors) and His great commission ( to go into the world making disciples and proclaiming His love).

We do all this because we believe that…

Jesus is the Word of God who made His dwelling among us… (John 1: 1 – 4, 14)

Jesus is the Rabbi who calls us to follow Him and learn His way of life… (Matthew 4: 18 – 22)
Jesus is the Prophet who announces the arrival of the Kingdom of God… (Mark 1: 15)

Jesus is the Messiah who preaches good news to the poor, binds up the brokenhearted, proclaims freedom, opens eyes and releases the oppressed… (Luke 4: 14 – 21)

Jesus is the Son of God who invites us into an intimate relationship with God the Father… (Mark 1: 10, 11)

Jesus is the Son of Man who came to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many… (Mark 10: 43 – 45)

Jesus is the Light of the World who takes away our darkness… (John 8: 1; Revelation 21: 22 – 25)

Jesus is the one Lord who alone we worship... (Philippians 2: 5 – 11)

Jesus is the Savior who forgives our sins and invites us into everlasting life with Him… (Matthew 1: 21; John 3: 16)
