What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Grace Church which are based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
THE TRINITY
The triune God, Father (Genesis 1:1), Son (John 10:30), and Holy Spirit (John 4:24)
VERBAL INSPIRATION
The verbal inspiration and plenary authority of both Old and New Testament (II Timothy 3:16,17)
TOTAL DEPRAVITY
The depravity and lost condition of all men by nature (Romans 3:19)
PERSONALITY OF SATAN
The personality of Satan (Job 1:6,7)
VIRGIN BIRTH
The virgin birth and deity of Jesus Christ, our Lord (Luke 1:35)
BLOOD ATONEMENT
The shed blood of Jesus Christ, the only atonement for sins (Romans 3:25)
RESURRECTION
The bodily resurrection and Lordship of Jesus (Acts 2:32-36; I Timothy 2:5)
JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH
Justification on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ (Acts 13:38, 39)
ETERNAL SECURITY
The eternal security of all believers (John 10:28,29)
THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT
Gifts given to each believer by the Holy Spirit for the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry, and for the edifying of the Body of Christ (Ephesians 4:11, 12)
PERSON AND WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
The personality of the Holy Spirit, who convicts the world of sin, and regenerates, indwells, enlightens, and guides the believer (John 16:8; I Corinthians 3:16)
THE CHURCH
The saved in this dispensation; all members of the Body of Christ, the Church (I Corinthians 12:12, 13)
THE PRIESTHOOD OF ALL BELIEVERS
The acceptance of every believer as a priest to offer, petitions, ministries, and intercessions to God, because of the intercessory work of Jesus Christ, our High Priest (I Peter 2:5: Revelation 1:6; Hebrews 3:1, 4:14, 7:24, 25, 10:21,22)

A life of separation from all worldly and sinful practices by those who are saved (James 4:4; Romans 12:2; I John 2:16; II Corinthians 6:14)
