Gospel. Community. Mission. These three words really summarize what Community of Grace is all about!
GOSPEL. We are a gospel-centered church. This means that “the gospel – and Jesus Himself – is our greatest hope and boast, our deepest longing and joy, and our most passionate song and message.It means that the gospel is what defines us as Christians, unites us as brothers and sisters, changes us as sinners/saints and sends us as God’s people on mission” (Joe Thorn). The gospel is the good news of all that God has done, is doing, and will do for His people through Jesus Christ. To find out more about this good news, we could encourage you to click here.
COMMUNITY. The gospel forms a new community. In Jesus Christ, God has adopted us into His family and has broken down the dividing walls of hostility that separate us. We want to magnify the beauty and power of the gospel by worshipping, serving, and living together as the redeemed family of God.
MISSION. The mission of the church is to make, mature, and multiply disciples of Christ (Mt.28:18-20). We're committed to this mission because "God’s goal for the whole world and the whole of human history is to glorify his beloved Son in the midst of the people He has rescued and transformed" (Tony Payne).
