Our Vision

We envision Grace Fellowship to be a community of believers where each person:

BELIEVES in Jesus Christ and has a growing faith

BELONGS to a Small Group where Christian relationships can develop and grow

BECOMES more like Jesus daily in attitude and action

A person's spiritual growth begins as you place your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. At the moment the Holy Spirit comes to dwell in the new believer and begins to lead you toward becoming more like Jesus. It is your first step along your spiritual growth path. 


As we walk with God our faith will grow. Our belief will become deeper and stronger as we see God's faithfulness. Our trust level will rise as we find that God's grace is always sufficient for every trial we face. 


The normal Christian life must have an ever-deepening faith in the Lord. It is this to which we are calling people. A life-changing relationship with Jesus begins with believing in Him.

God's desire and design for you is to be intimately connected to others in His church. He takes a diverse group of people with all kinds of gifts, abilities, skills, and quirks and puts them together to do incredible things. As we connect with one another, we develop relationships. These relationships provide encouragement and accountability - both of which are essential for Christian growth. 


It is hard to create intimacy and build relationships in large gatherings. A small group ministry is an incredibly effective way for believers to connect. We encourage you to get involved in a Grace Group - either on campus or off campus. 

Discipleship is a process. You are becoming the person God designed you to be. You are a believer who worships. You are a belonger who connects in the body of Christ. And you are a becomer who lives out your faith through ministry and missions.


In order for a disciple to experience the greatest satisfaction in life, you must be sharing your faith and serving people. This can take many different forms depending on the spiritual gifts, natural talents, and individual passions of each believer. We encourage you to seek out the "sweet spot" God has for you.

...in the Holy Scriptures

as originally given by GOD, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and the

supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.


(2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Mark 13:31; John 8:31-32; 20:31; Acts 20:32)


...in one God, 

eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


(Genesis 1:1, 26; John 1:1, 3; Matthew 28:19; Romans 1:19-20; Ephesians 4:5-6)


...in our Lord Jesus Christ,

GOD manifest in the flesh, His virgin birth, His sinless human life, His divine miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, His mediatorial work, and His personal return in power and glory.


(Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38; John 1:1; 20:28; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 2:21-23; John 20:30- 31; Matthew 20:28; Ephesians 1:4; Acts 1:11; Romans 5:6-10; 

Hebrews 7:25; 9:28; 1 Timothy 3:16)


...in the salvation of lost

        and sinful man through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ by faith apart from works, 

and regeneration by the Holy Spirit.


(Genesis 3:15; Matthew 1:21; 4:17; 16:21-26; 27:22-28:6; Luke 1:68-69; 2:28-32; John 1:11-14, 29; 3:3-21, 36; 5:24; 10:9, 28-29; 15:1-16; 17:17; Acts 2:21; 4:12; 15:11; 16:30-31; 17:30-31; 20:32; Romans 1:16-18; 2:4; 3:23-25; 4:3-25.; 5:8-10; 6:1-23; 8:1-18, 29-39; 10:9-10, 13; 13:11-14; 1 Corinthians 1:18, 30; 6:19-20; 15:10; 2 Corinthians 5:17-20; Galatians 2:20; 3:13; 5:22-25; 6:15; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-22; 4:11-16; Philippians 2:12-13; Colossians 1:9-22; 3:1-17; 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24; 2 Timothy 1:12; Titus 2:11-14;

...in the Holy Spirit

the Giver of spiritual gifts to each believer, and by whose indwelling the believer is enabled and empowered to live

a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ.


(Genesis 1:2; Judges 14:6; Psalms 51:11; 139:7; Isaiah 61:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Matthew 1:18; 3:16; 4:1; 12:28-32; 28:19; Mark 1:10, 12; Luke 1:35; 4:1, 18-19; 11:13; 12:12; 24:49; John 4:24; 14:16-17, 26; 15:26; 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4, 38; 4:31; 5:3; 6:3; 7:55; 8:17, 39; 10:44; 13:2; 15:28; 16:6; 19:1-6; Romans 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27; 1 Corinthians 2:10-14; 3:16; 12:3-11, 13; Galatians 4:6; Ephesians 1:13-14; 4:30; 5:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:19; 1 Timothy 3:16; 4:1; 2 Timothy 1:14; 3:16; Hebrews 9:8, 14; 2 Peter 1:21; 

1 John 4:13; 5:6-7; Revelation 1:10; 22:17)


...in the unity of the Spirit

of all true believers, the Church, the Body of Christ.


(Matthew 16:15-19; 18:15-20; Acts 2:41-42, 47; 5:11-14; 6:3-6; 13:1-3; 14:23, 27; 15:1-30; 16:5; 20:28; 1 Corinthians 1:2; 9:13-14; 12; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; 3:8-11, 21; 

5:22-32; Philippians 1:1; Colossians 1:18; 1 Timothy 3:1-15; 4:14; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 2-3; 21:2-3)


...in the resurrection
of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, they that are lost
unto the resurrection of damnation.

            (Matthew 16:27; Mark 14:62; John 14:3; Acts 1:11; Philippians 3:20; 1 Thessalonians 4:15; 2 Timothy 4:1; 1 Corinthians 4:5; 1 Corinthians 15;

Elders

5 To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder and a witness of Christ’s sufferings who also will share in the glory to be revealed: 2 Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve; 3 not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. 


1 Peter 5:1-3
