We envision a church where everyone feels welcomed—where the “not okay,” the skeptic, and those longing/seeking to know and experience more of Jesus Christ feel connected.
We envision a church that preaches the Truth in love, leaving no doubt that Jesus Christ is All. We don’t want people to leave saying, “What a great church,” but “What a great God; what a great Savior.”
We envision a church with weekend experiences that focus on Jesus Christ through the message, and responds rapturously through worship, praise, and action. We see weekend worship powerfully uniting and influencing the weekly life and ministries of Grace.
We envision a church where Christ is the center of marriages and families. We see the people and ministries of Grace extending the healing power of Jesus for strength, support, and reconciliation in homes. We see parents discipling their children, biblical leadership in homes, and families on exciting mission together for God.
We envision a people who don’t just come to church to worship, but who come worshipping to church. We see a people who daily unplug from the noise of the world, who read God’s Word and let God’s Word read them, who pray faithfully and unceasingly, who eagerly walk in the power of the Holy Spirit.
We envision a church where no one is lonely. We see a people who suffer, celebrate, and serve together. We envision a people who connect in transparent and authentic community, through smaller groups and teams in the church, who care for one another and grow spiritually together.
We envision a people who live for eternity. We see a people so moved by the first love of God, and so captivated by the heart and mission of Jesus, that they respond with sacrificial giving of their financial resources.
We envision a people who refuse to be church consumers. We see a people who are “all-in,” lavishly using their gifts and giving their time to serve the Grace family and ministries.
We envision a church where people live on mission as a way of life. We see a people who boldly share their story of Jesus’s salvation that others may know Him, and sacrificially invest themselves that others may grow in Him.
We envision a people who express the love of Christ through intimate involvement within local communities. We see a church who so loves people that communities would weep at the thought of Grace being no more.
We envision a people who catch the spectacular view of God’s redeeming love for the world. We see a church compelled by this vision to take the truth and hope of the Gospel into Orange County, the Northeast, and overseas by encouraging, raising up, and releasing leaders to do so.
We envision Revival, where Jesus Christ is adored, the Spirit of God frees, lost from God are found, faith and repentance flow, praise and prayer erupt, lives and communities are transformed, love and joy fill hearts, freedom overwhelms, believers are empowered, barriers are broken down, the hungry are fed, needs are met, marriages are restored, families are reunited, sick minds and bodies are healed, and prodigals come home!
