GracePlace Vision Statement

We want to be a people who care for, welcome, and support those around us in a way that can only be inspired by God. It's our hope that people who visit our church or interact with our people walk away feeling encouraged, refreshed, and drawn closer to God. We want every man, woman, and child in our community to have the chance to experience and respond to the Gospel in action through our church.

“that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.”  John 17:21

GracePlace Member's Mission Statement

We, as members of GracePlace, will live saved every day; and will give God the best praise and worship we can TODAY, not to impress anyone, but to refresh everyone we come in contact with.

“Praise the Lord! Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty firmament! 2 Praise Him for His mighty acts; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness! 6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!” Psalms 150: 1, 2, 6

GracePlace Organizational Mission Statement

GracePlace pursues the kingdom of God and His righteousness first, loves hard, and works harder for the deliverance of all people!

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” – Matthew 6:33

“for the Lord your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.” Deut. 20:4

Our Values

Worship & Study

GracePlace has teamed with Harvest Bible University to give members an opportunity to earn an A.A. and/or B.A. at the local church. Tuition is modified to fit into the budget of working adults who want to learn at their own pace. By reaching out to and serving those around us, we will share God's love and His message of hope with the people in our community.

Evangelism & Outreach

Through weekly Bible studies, worship gatherings, and small groups, we will learn more about God and grow in our knowledge and love for Him.

Missions & Sending

By making disciples and supporting fellow believers as they step out to launch new churches and ministries around the world, we will expand our reach to exhibit God's love to people across the globe.
