Our Beliefs

A firm foundation.

God is holy, loving and perfect. We are fallen, sinful and broken. There is nothing that we can do apart from God to redeem our lives. It is only through God's generous grace that we are redeemed. He is the foundation for everything we do.

 

Grace 242 doesn't exist for itself, we exist to glorify God. We are not interested in conforming to the will of the world, instead we seek God's will in all that we do and have faith that He will use us as a part of His plan.


Our Mission

Follow Jesus.

Making followers of Jesus.

Growing followers of Jesus.

Jesus left us with a mission. He commissioned us to go out into the world and to make disciples of people everywhere. The mission doesn't end there. We are called to teach them to obey the commands we have been given. Our mission reflects the mission we have been given, we seek to make disciples and help them to grow in their faith.

Matthew 28:19-20


Our Core Values

Biblical.

As God's Word, the Bible is trustworthy. It is the heart of what we preach and teach, how we relate to one another, and how we reach the world around us.

2 Timothy 3:16; James 1:22

Missional.

Jesus has given us the greatest, and most important  mission in the world! We exist first and foremost to take the Gospel, in message and action, to the world to make disciples.

Matthew 28:19; Acts 20:24

Relational.

We really do belong to each other. God is love and we love one another with a love that flows from the Gospel. We share our lives; serve, encourage and support one another; and commit to being the Body of Christ.

Acts 2:42-47; Romans 12:5


Our Beliefs

God is sovereign.

God is the creator of the universe and author of life. God is timeless, all knowing, all loving, and unchanging. God knows each of us by name and has a plan for each of us.

Jesus is our savior.

Jesus Christ is God in flesh, fully God and fully man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice. By His death and resurrection our sins were forgiven and we can experience life everlasting.

Holy Spirit is with us.

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, co-equal with God the Father and God the Son. He is the promised comforter and helper who lives in those who follow Jesus.

The Bible is infallible.

The Bible, containing Old and New Testaments, is the infallible, inspired word of God. Written by human hand under guidance of the Holy Spirit, the Bible is the ultimate source for our values, beliefs and teaching. 

Salvation is by grace.

Salvation is a gift, it is by grace alone. There is nothing we need to accomplish, no amount of work to be done in order to be saved. By putting our trust in Jesus we can all experience an abundant, eternal life.

Eternal life awaits.

We were created to exist forever in the presence of God. There will be a day when those who follow Christ will be called home to the kingdom of heaven and we will praise God together for all eternity.
