WHAT TO EXPECT

We invite you and your family to come as you are and join us with an open heart ready to experience God’s presence and power! We know it can be unnerving and awkward to visit a new church, so we want to make it as easy as possible for you to feel comfortable the moment you walk in the doors. You’ll be greeted by one of our awesome Hospitality Team members who will take time to show you around and help you get acclimated. 
 

 What is the service like?

We open our service with a time of bold, passionate worship, focusing on God’s Presence. Our talented worship team leads us each week to worship Jesus in a style that is relatable across the generations, with a mix of modern/contemporary, as well as some classics, and traditional hymns. Then we are blessed to receive a Bible-based, Spirit-led message to encourage us in our walk with God and to challenge us to continue to grow in Him. We open our altar area during the service for people to come pray with others for needs in their lives. 
 

What should I wear?

Dress comfortably.  We’re not concerned with what people wear, rather who they worship!
 

What’s available for my kids?

Kids are a very big deal at GCC! We desire to reach and teach children in such a way that they have the greatest opportunity to become fully developing followers of Christ. Our children’s ministry, GraceKids, is a safe and fun environment for kids to grow in their relationship with God and others. Our programs are designed to each unique age group and they will have a blast! If you would like for your kids to join in, our hospitality team will help direct you to our KidCheck kiosk, where a volunteer will help assist you through the check-in process. Your child will be given a name tag with a code, and you will also be given a matching tag with their unique code so you can rest assured they are secure, and you’ll be the only one allowed to pick up your child after service. You can then drop them off at your child’s class where the GraceKids Staff will welcome your child with open arms. We have Kids’ Church for those in Kindergarten through Sixth Grade, Sonshine Gang for ages 3 to school-age, and Nursery for Birth-2.
*Your child’s safety is our highest priority and so we require each of our volunteers to undergo a background check prior to being involved in our Children’s Ministries.

OUR BELIEFS

Grace Community Church is an Assemblies of God Congregation. 

 
This assembly accepts the Holy Scriptures as the revealed will of God, the all-sufficient rule of faith and practice, and for the purpose of maintaining general unity, adopts the Statement of Fundamental Truths of The
General Council of the Assemblies of God, to wit:
1. The Scriptures Inspired
The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God
to man – the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct (2 Timothy 3:15-17; I Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21).
2. The One True God
The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent “I AM”, the Creator of heaven and earth
and the Redeemer of mankind. He has further revealed himself as embodying the principles of relationship
and association as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10,11; Matthew 28:19).
3. The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ
The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare:
(a) His virgin birth (Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31,35)
(b) His sinless life (Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22)
(c) His miracles (Acts 2:22; 10:38)
(d) His substitutionary work on the cross (1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21)
(e) His bodily resurrection from the dead (Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; 1 Corinthians 15:4)
(f) His exaltation to the right hand of God (Acts 1:9,11; 2:33; Philippians 2:9-11; Hebrews 1:3)
4. The Fall of Man
Man was created good and upright; for God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” However, man by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death,
which is separation from God (Genesis 1:26,27; 2:17; 3:6; Romans 5:12-19).
5. The Salvation of Man
The only hope of redemption for man is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God.
(a) Conditions to Salvation
Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By
the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost, being justified by grace through
faith, man becomes an heir of God according to the hope of eternal life (Luke 24:47; John 3:3;
Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:8; Titus 2:11; 3:5-7).
(b) The Evidences of Salvation
The inward evidence of salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit (Romans 8:16). The outward
evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness (Ephesians 4:24; Titus 2:12).
6. The Ordinances of the Church
(a) Baptism in Water
The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded in the Scriptures. All who repent and believe on Christ as Saviour and Lord are to be baptized. Thus they declare to the world that they
have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life.
(Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 10:47,48; Romans 6:4).
(b) Holy Communion
The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements – bread, and the fruit of the vine – are the symbols
expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4); a memorial of His
suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26); and a prophecy of His second coming (1 Corinthians
11:26); and is enjoined on all believers “till He come!”
7. The Baptism in the Holy Ghost
All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the Baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the
bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4,8; 1 Corinthians 12:1-
31). This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth (Acts 8:12-17; 10:44-
46; 11:14-16; 15:7-9). With the Baptism in the Holy Ghost come such experiences as an overflowing fullness
of the Spirit (John 7:37-39; Acts 4:8), a deepened reverence for God (Acts 2:43; Hebrews 12:28), an intensified consecration to God and dedication to His work (Acts 2:42), and a more active love for Christ, for His
Word and for the lost (Mark 16:20).
8. The Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Ghost
The baptism of believers in the Holy Ghost is witnessed by the initial physical sign of speaking with other
tongues as the Spirit of God gives them utterance (Acts 2:4). The speaking in tongues in this instance is the
same in essence as the gift of tongues (1 Corinthians 12:4-10, 28), but different in purpose and use.
9. Sanctification
Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God (Romans 12: 1,2; 1
Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 13:12). The Scriptures teach a life of “holiness without which no man shall see
the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14). By the power of the Holy Ghost we are able to obey the command, “Be ye holy,
for I am holy” (1 Peter 1:5).
Sanctification is realized in the believer by recognizing his identification with Christ in His death and resurrection, and by faith reckoning daily upon the fact of that union and by offering every faculty continually to the
dominion of the Holy Spirit (Romans 6:1-11; 8:1,2,13; Galatians 2:20; Philippians 2:12,13; 1 Peter 1:5)
10. The Church and Its Mission
The Church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the
fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the General Assembly and Church of the Firstborn, which are written in heaven (Ephesians 1:22,23; Hebrews 12:23).
Since God’s purpose concerning man is to save that which is lost, to be worshipped by man, and to build a
body of believers in the image of His Son, the primary reason-for-being of the Assemblies of God as part of the Church is:
(a) To be an agency of God for evangelizing the world (Acts 1:8, Matthew 28:19,20; Mark 16:15,16).
(b) To be a corporate body in which man may worship God (1 Corinthians 12:13).
(c) To be a channel of God’s purpose to build a body of saints being perfected in the image of His
Son (Ephesians 4:11-16; 1 Corinthians 12:28; 1 Corinthians 14:12).
The Assemblies of God exists expressly to give continuing emphasis to this reason-for-being in the New Testament apostolic pattern by teaching and encouraging believers to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. This experience:
(a) Enables them to evangelize in the power of the Spirit with accompanying supernatural signs
(Mark 16:15-20; Acts 4:29-31; Hebrews 2:3,4).
(b) Adds a necessary dimension to the worshipful relationship with God (1 Corinthians 2:10-16; 1 Corinthians 12:13,14).
(c) Enables them to respond to the full working of the Holy Spirit in expression of fruit and gifts and
ministries as in New Testament times for the edifying of the body of Christ (Galatians 5:22-26; 1 Corinthians 14:12;                        Ephesians 4:11,12; 1 Corinthians 12:28; Colossians 1:29).
11. The Ministry
A divinely called and scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for the threefold purpose
of leading the Church in: (1) Evangelization of the world (Mark 16:15-20); (2) Worship of God (John
4:23,24); (3) Building a body of saints being perfected in the image of His Son (Ephesians 4:11-16).
12. Divine Healing
Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement,
and is the privilege of all believers (Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:16,17; James 5:14-16).
13. The Blessed Hope
The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are
alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord is the imminent and blessed hope of the Christian (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 15:51,52).
14. The Millennial Reign of Christ
The second coming of Christ includes the rapture of the saints, which is our blessed hope, followed by the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on the earth for one thousand years (Zechariah 14:5; Matthew
24:27,30; Revelation 1:7; 19:11-14; 20:1-6). This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel
(Ezekiel 37:21,22; Zephaniah 3:19,20; Romans 11:26,27) and the establishment of universal peace (Isaiah
11:6-9; Psalm 72:3-8; Micah 4:3,4).
15. The Final Judgment
There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works.
Whosoever is not found in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false
prophet, will be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which
is the second death (Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20; 20:11-15; 21:8).
16. The New Heavens and the New Earth
“We, according to His promise, look for the new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness” (2
Peter 3:13; Revelation 21,22).
