Every member a minister, every person a ministry, everything for God’s glory.
Every member a minister
There are no Christian spectators. Christ has charged his church with the responsibility to go and make disciples. We are all commissioned to be actively ministering the Gospel and living out the fruits of a life transformed by Jesus. At Grace Fellowship we take very seriously our responsibility individually and collectively to shine as lights in a dark world.
Every person a ministry
Jesus was clear that his disciples would be known by their love. As Jesus disciples we are commanded to love people, all people. The Gospel of Jesus transcends dividing lines like race, culture, economic strata, or political affiliation. People are not a burden they are a blessing and it our privilege to evangelize, disciple, and love people.
Everything for God’s Glory
Paul told the Corinthian church to glorify God in whatever they do. We understand that to be our primary motivation in life as well. God is holy, which means He is glorious. We cannot add to His glory, but what we can do is display His glory, make His glory known, and encourage others to live to glorify Him as well.
Our elders oversee the doctrine, direction, and discipleship of our church. They also count it a great privilege to pray for the sick. "Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord." James 5:14 If you would like the elders to pray over you, please contact them.
