Knowing God, Growing together in faith, & Proclaiming Christ

 

service times

Currently, we’re meeting in the building on Sunday morning at our regularly scheduled time of 10:30 a.m.  We desire to love each other well during this season of masks and social distancing, living wisely but without fear. We’ve arranged our worship center with generous space between chairs. You’re welcome to wear a mask if you’d prefer and give space to each other while we fellowship and worship well. Children’s services are happening on Sunday morning. We plan our children’s activities with consideration for keeping our kids safe, while recognizing that perfect social distancing is not possible with children. Parents are welcome to keep their children with them during the service.

our core values

We desire to Know God, Grow together in faith, and Proclaim Christ.

The Gospel

We believe there is salvation in no one else other than Jesus. Therefore, we desire to consistently proclaim the good news about a relationship with Jesus Christ and the life in his kingdom brings, both now and in eternity. What God did in and through Jesus to reconcile humanity to himself is the basis for our restored identity, our gracious salvation, and our mission to a world desperately in need of him. Additionally, we consider Jesus to be not only our savior, but also our king. And as such, we submit ourselves to his rule and authority.

God’s Word

We believe the Bible to be the inerrant Word of God that provides knowledge for salvation and righteous living. In the written Word of God, we come to know the revealed Word of God, Jesus. We value the work of the Holy Spirit in each believer to correctly handle the Word of truth for teaching, reproof, correction, and training in righteousness, so we may be equipped for every good work.

Community

If God’s purposes and roles for the church in the world are to be taken seriously, we need each other to accomplish them. We believe God’s salvation includes bringing individuals into a community gathered by and under the Gospel. And we grow when sharing our lives with others in our church family.
 
Additionally, we desire to take Jesus’ call to love our neighbors seriously. We desire renewal in our community through reconciling relationships, showing mercy, and seeking justice and healing. In this way, we will bring blessings to our neighbors and town so that God would be known and glorified.

Discipleship

We believe that a growing relationship with our Heavenly Father means that we will grow to look more like Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit, both individually and communally. We value spiritual growth as mature believers entrust what has been given to them to others within our community. We believe there is no such thing as an “unsent” disciple, so we seek to be a part of a discipleship movement. We believe every follower of Jesus is to reproduce their life and ways through gospel proclamation and helping new believers become fully devoted followers of Jesus.

who we are

Grace began in the living room of Steve and Karen Lawson in April of 1999. Their desire was to seek God with authenticity and to pursue radical Grace rather than legalistic religion.

Grace has grown to a dynamic, diverse body with ministries for men and women, students, and children. We serve God’s kingdom locally in Greenville, Texas and abroad with Outreach Partners in Reynosa, Mexico, Vancouver, British Columbia and missions trainers in Colorado. We are non-denominational with a love of Scripture, worship, service, and each other. 
Christopher Heslep joined our team as our lead pastor in March of 2021. Our elders, leaders, and church family are excited to see where God leads our congregation in this next season of ministry, service, and growth. But God’s purposes for Grace remain uniquely fashioned for this time and this place. Join us as we see his plans unfold.
 

statement of faith

we believe in…
 
one God
The one true God who lives eternally in three persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
 
God’s grace
The love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the world.
 
the written Word of God
The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God – fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.
 
the creation and corruption of all people
The dignity of all people, made male and female in God’s image, to love, be holy and care for creation, yet corrupted by sin, which incurs divine wrath and judgment.
 
our Lord Jesus Christ
The incarnation of God’s eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ – born of the virgin Mary; fully divine and fully human, yet without sin.
 
the atonement of Christ
The atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross: dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil, so reconciling us with God.
 
the resurrection of Christ
The bodily resurrection of Christ, the first fruits of our resurrection, his ascension to the Father, and his reign and mediation as the only Savior of the world.
 
the justification of Christ
The justification of sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ.
 
the Holy Spirit
The ministry of God the Holy Spirit, who leads us to repentance, unites us with Christ through new birth, empowers our discipleship and enables our witness.
 
the Church
The Church, the body of Christ both local and universal, the priesthood of all believers – given life by the Spirit and endowed with the Spirit’s gifts to bring glory to God, edify the community of believers, and proclaim the gospel.
 
the return of Christ
The personal and visible return of Jesus Christ to fulfill the purposes of God, raising all people to judgement, bringing eternal life to the redeemed sand establishing a new heaven and new earth.
