Our Vision: Help everyone become an outward-focused follower of Jesus

Our vision is based on the outward-focused church of Antioch found in the book of Acts (Acts 11-15).

What We Believe

Scripture and God

SCRIPTURE: We believe all Scripture was given by verbal, complete, and inerrant inspiration of God and is our final authority for all matters of faith and practice.

(2 Timothy 3:14-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21, Galatians 3:16, Psalm 119:89, 160, John 17:17,Matthew 5:17-18, Revelation 22:18-19)

GOD: We believe in one true God, who is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent, and who is manifest in three eternal Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

(Deuteronomy 6:4, Jeremiah 32:27, Acts 15:18, Psalm 139:1-10, John 1:1, 14, Matthew 3:16-17, 28:18-20, 1 John 5:20, Acts 5:3-4)

JESUS CHRIST: We believe Jesus Christ is the eternal God in human form, conceived by the Holy Spirit in the womb of a virgin named Mary. We believe Jesus lived a sinless life, died to pay for all sins, rose again the third day, and ascended to heaven.

(John 1:1,14, 1 John 5:20, Isaiah 7:14, 9:6-7, 1 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 4:14-16, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Romans 5:6-11, 1 John 2:1-2)

HOLY SPIRIT: We believe the Holy Spirit is the eternal God, indwelling and sealing the believer at the moment of salvation. We believe the Holy Spirit teaches the believer God’s Word, transforms them into the image of Christ, and gives spiritual gifts to be used according to Scripture to glorify God.

(Romans 8:9-11, Ephesians 1:13-14, 4:30, John 16:7-15, 2 Corinthians 3:17-18, 1 Corinthians 12, 1 Peter 4:10-11)

Beginnings of All Things

SATAN: We believe Satan is a spiritual being which was lifted up in pride, rebelled against God with his angels, and opposes God’s work today. We believe his defeat and destiny were sealed by the work of Christ on the cross.

(Matthew 4:8-11, Isaiah 14:12-15, 1 Peter 5:7, Ephesians 6:10-12, Hebrews 2:14-15,Revelation 20:10)

GENESIS: We believe Genesis is not allegorical or figurative. We believe God created the universe, and created Adam in His image, but Adam sinned through the free will God gave him. We believe people inherit Adam’s sinful nature and become sinners in experience, for which the wages are death.

(Genesis 1:1, 26-27, 3:1-7, Matthew 19:4-6, 24:37-39, Romans 5:12, 18-19, 3:23, 6:23)

Salvation and the Church

SALVATION: We believe salvation is by God’s grace alone, received through faith in the death and resurrection of Christ, and by calling on Jesus as Lord. We believe salvation is being born spiritually into God’s family, which cannot be reversed or lost, because it is kept by the power of God. (Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 10:9, 13, John 3:1-7, 10:27-30, 1 Peter 1:3-5, Romans 8:35-39, 1 John 2:18-19)

THE CHURCH: We believe the church is the body of believers who are spiritually connected worldwide. We believe the local church is an assembly God calls together to accomplish Christ’s work in this world, by observing the ordinances of baptism and communion, and equipping believers to minister. (Matthew 16:18, 22:34-40, 28:18-20, Ephesians 1:22-23, 3:20-21, 4:11-16, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, Acts 2:41-47, 11:19-30)


CHRIST’S RETURN: We believe Jesus will return again to earth to reign. We believe that before Christ’s return, all genuine believers will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air, and the world will experience a period of tribulation.

(Acts 1:9-11, 2 Thessalonians 1:3-10, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-5:11, Matthew 24, Daniel 9:27,12:1, Revelation 20:1-6)

ETERNITY: We believe all people will spend eternity with Christ or separated from Him. We believe those without Christ wait in Hell for the day of final judgment. We believe those with Christ wait with Jesus for their resurrection and eternal inheritance.

(John 5:28-29, 3:16-18, Luke 16:19-31, Revelation 20:11-15, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, 2 John 1:8, Luke 19:11-27)

Ministry Values

Every church has a unique DNA. We have seven core ministry values that are drawn directly from the story of the original Church of Antioch described in the book of Acts.

An “Antiochian Church” is a Place of…

A: Allowing Risks (Acts 11:19-20)
N: Numerous Life-Changes (Acts 11:21,24,26)
T: Team Leadership (Acts 13:1-2, 15:35)
I: Intentional Multiplication (Acts 14:26-27)
O: Outward Focus (Acts 13:3-4)
C: Christ’s Presence (Acts 11:22-23)
H: High Generosity (Acts 11:27-30)

Church Planting

At Grace Church we are committed to plant 100 new churches or campuses by 2036. We are excited for this new journey we are on and we invite you to take part in it. We have recently started a church planting network, a church planting residency and we will be launching “Send Step”, a church planting school designed to train and equip those with a heart for this vision. In the meantime, if you have any questions about church planting, our network, or our residency, please reach out – we would love to chat with you!


We have a team of people at Grace who work hard to impact God’s Kingdom, and have a lot of fun doing it! Take a look at our staff page to find out who is who, what they do, and how to get in touch with them.
