Grace Restoration Community Church (GRCC) is purposed to make disciples (Matthew 28:19-20). We are focused on sharing the love of Jesus, finding the truth and freedom in God's word, and encouraging others to grow in their faith. It's in these things that we maximize all that God created us to be.
VISION: Love God! Love People! Pursue excellence and serve with joy!
Love God - We love God by following His commandments. We love God because of who He is and what He did through His son Jesus the Christ. Everything we do at GRCC and in life comes from our love for God.
Love People - We love people regardless of their background or situations. We believe people need the love of God the most when they deserve it the least. GRCC pursues being the safe place for everyone. If we love people properly, we fulfill the Greatest Commandment.
Pursue Excellence - We have a strong desire to do everything with a Spirit of excellence as it is a full reflection of the excellency of God.
Serve with Joy - We have a strong desire to serve with joy; being physical representations of the spiritual freedom that was given freely to us all in Christ
-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.

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.
