MISSION

To Establish and maintain a Church modeled after the early Biblical, Christian community as recorded in the book of Acts, for the advancement of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the fellowship of believers by all available means.


Preach the Gospel - which means we have a correct interpretation of what God says. When the Word of God is preached at our church, the teaching is extracted from the rightly divided Word of God. The accurately preached Word of God has been a catalyst for change, growth and spiritual maturity at Grace Restoration Church and we take it very seriously. We are all preachers of the Word through our lifestyle, and it’s by living a life that glorifies God that makes Jesus irresistible to the unsaved. ​


Follow the Kingdom Template – The mandate is to go out to the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey all that the Lord has commanded us. Our functions help to meet the needs of the church (body) so that all believers that are with one accord would not suffer lack in any area of their life. The infrastructure of Grace Restoration Church is how we care for our members administratively, spiritually and financially. Therefore, fruit that produces from it will cause duplication to take place. ​


Rebuild the Church - In rebuilding the Church, our local church is to be an example to believers of what God originally instructed the Body of Christ to be and to do. It is necessary that we strive for a spirit of excellence in all we do according to the word of God in our personal, professional, and spiritual walk.

VISION & MOTIVATION

VISION: The Vision is our original instructions from God. Grace Restoration Church is called to be: Mature in our faith – Which means to understand what we believe and why we believe it. Our mandate is to learn the scriptures, rightly divide the Word of God, crave a constant relationship with the Lord through the Holy Spirit, and apply the Word of God to our daily lives. Love God and others – Which means to love what’s right and hate sin. We must discipline ourselves to not compromise the true Word of God for the sake of flesh. We are thankful for our Advocate should we fall, but we do not manipulate the grace bestowed unto us. If we truly love God, practices will follow. Discover our purpose and walk in it – Which means to worship God, grow in our spiritual gifts, find out how to use it to benefit the kingdom, the church, and the community and do it. Our gifts will make room for us, so our personal agenda should never come first.


MOTIVATION OF THE CHURCH:

The motivation is why we are carrying out the plan. The general motivation of Grace Restoration Church is LOVE. Everything we do is motivated out the fact that God has called us as Christians, to love one another. Our motivation is to: (1) Seek and Save the Lost, which means we preach Jesus to all who are without Him. When we seek and save the lost, we are no respecter of persons in who and how we share the Gospel. We know that anyone who does not know the Savior is lost and we do not hide the Gospel from the lost. (2) Destroy the works of the devil, which means we do not participate in any unrighteousness and have decided to pull away from the world’s system of doing things. We know that as Christians we are to love not the world, neither the things that are in the world including the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the pride of life. (I John 2:15-16) (3) Leave a legacy for the next generation, which means we want to replenish the earth and leave a ministry that will stand the test of time and live beyond our natural lives. We leave a deposit for the next generation when we are an example to them of how to live a faithful and committed life in Christ Jesus.

STATEMENT OF FAITH

-The Trinity is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory. ​
-The Bible is the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.  God The Father is an infinite, personal Spirit perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love, and that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men.-We believe that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through His Son, Jesus Christ.  Jesus Christ is God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit.-We believe in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, and in His miracles and teachings.

-We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, His bodily resurrection, and His ascension into heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father.

-We believe in His personal, visible return to earth, and the establishment of His Kingdom.  The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and regenerates, sanctifies, and empowers for ministry all who believe in Christ.

-We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ, and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide.

-We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, and in the exercise of all Biblical gifts of the Spirit.  All People are sinners by nature and choice, and therefore regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential.

-We believe that repentance (turning away) from sin and acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to come into relationship with God.

-We believe that Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit to empower the believer for service, and that this often occurs after salvation. ​

-We believe in the Resurrection of all people, both the saved and the lost they that are saved unto eternal life in heaven, and they that are lost unto eternal separation from God in hell. ​

-We believe in the Ordinances of water baptism and the regular taking of communion. We do not believe that either of these practices are essential for salvation, but that they serve as a demonstration of our dying to sin and rising, living in Christ.

SMALL GROUPS

When we look at the early church we get a picture of small communities of people who followed Jesus together. The Book of Acts, especially Acts 2:42-47, gives us a great picture of the early church and the components of biblical community, which encompassed both the "temple courts" and "house to house." These believers engaged in life together through teaching, fellowship, communion, prayer, miracles, radical generosity, and corporate worship. They spent time together eating, learning, celebrating, proclaiming the Good News, and supporting each other. In addition, the 50-plus "one another" verses in the New Testament flesh out other aspects of this community. For example, it was a place where people loved, forgave, served, bore burdens, encouraged, exhorted, prayed, equipped, spoke truth in love, confessed sins, and treated each other as precious members of one body.


The Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20 mandates that every follower of Christ is on mission to "go and make disciples of all nations." Jesus gave this instruction to all his followers, both as individuals and as the body of Christ. We, as a small group and as a church, bear collective witness to the good news of Jesus Christ.
