ABOUT


Grace exists to bring glory to God by making disciples through gospel-centered worship, community, service, and multiplication

Our Purpose

The gospel is God’s story of reconciling and redeeming a broken humanity to Himself through the life, death, resurrection and future return of Jesus Christ. Our hope and desire is that the gospel would be the center of all that we do. It is what directs and defines us. It is our identity.

Grace Church is a local body of believers in Greenville, North Carolina. We are an autonomous, independent church and unaffiliated with any group or denomination. To know more about our beliefs, please visit our Beliefs page.

Several times a year we host a discovery course where the public is welcome to attend and learn an overview about Grace Church's beliefs. This course is required to become a member of Grace Church. If interested, please call the office at 252-355-3500.

Beliefs


We are a people whose lives have been made new
by the Gospel of Jesus Christ

Beliefs


We are a people whose lives have been made new
by the Gospel of Jesus Christ

Scripture

We believe that the Word of God is totally true, incapable of error or flaw. Every scripture in the Old and New Testament canons was breathed out by God Himself Who inspired human authors to write for the instruction, correction, and training of believers throughout history and today. (2 Timothy 3:162 Peter 1:211 Corinthians 2:13)

 

God

We believe that God has forever existed in three persons: Father, Son (Jesus), and (The Holy) Spirit. God the Father is the creator of, sustainer of, and Sovereign over all things. God is perfectly righteous and just, incapable of wrong. (Genesis 1:1-2Acts 4:24Psalm 116:5Isaiah 6:3)

 

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus is the image of the invisible God. An instrument of creation, Jesus has forever existed as part of the trinity. At the perfect time, Jesus abandoned His throne in Heaven to come to earth as a ransom for humanity. We believe that Jesus suffered and died as an atoning sacrifice for our sins, and He rose on the third day to defeat the power of Hell and death. We believe that Jesus will return in power and glory to redeem His bride, the church. (Colossians 1:15-171 Peter 3:18Romans 5:6-11)

 

The Holy Spirit

We believe that, present at creation, the Holy Spirit has forever existed as part of the trinity. The Holy Spirit is active today convicting the world of sin and righteousness and regenerating, indwelling, and empowering the saved. (Genesis 1:2John 16:7-11Romans 8:9Ephesians 5:181 Corinthians 12:7Acts 1:8)

 

Man

We believe that man was created in the image of God to have perfect peace and fellowship with God. Our first parents lived and walked with God, but they broke God’s law for the garden and were cast out and separated from God. (Genesis 1:26Genesis 2:17Genesis 6:6)

 

Sin

We believe that all humans are born under the curse of sin. Because of that sin and God’s holiness, we are separated from God. Every attempt of our own will to get back to God is futile because our souls are hopelessly stained and incapable of bringing anything good before God. (Romans 3:10-19Romans 3:20Ephesians 2:1-3)

 

Hope

We believe that the only way we can escape the effects of sin is to embrace the reality of Jesus Christ with saving faith in His work on the cross. Because He is perfect, Christ’s sacrifice is the only effort good enough to redeem us from death’s grip. Therefore, God alone can save us and impute righteousness to sinful souls. This salvation is the act of a Sovereign God Who can alone rescue and is in no way possible through the human free will—that no one should be able to boast about their salvation. (Romans 10:9-112 Corinthians 5:21Ephesians 2:8-9)

 

The Church

We believe that the church is God’s chosen vehicle to transport the Gospel of Christ. We don’t believe that the church is a building or a location, rather it is people joined with common focus and motive: the knowledge of the glory of God as revealed in Christ. As the bride of Christ, we believe the church is to live humble, sacrificial lives that pursue the lost and glorify God. (Acts 1:8Ephesians 5:27Acts 2:42)
