About Us

Welcome to a New Version of CommunityStarfish1

Grace Family Fellowship is a church committed to joyfully acknowledging, embracing and living in the grace that God has extended to us through Jesus Christ, His Son. We believe that resembles the model of biblical community described in Acts 2.

As we live, worship, learn, love, laugh, discover, serve, and experience God together, we want our community to be a safe and comfortable place to explore God’s Word and build authentic relationships.

Some core values that define our life together are to:

  • be missional in nature— we want to actively engage in and build relationships with people in our neighborhoods, schools, workplaces, community and beyond to share our faith, shape our culture and serve others in need.
  • be about encouraging and equipping believers so that we may fulfill our Christ-given mandate to “go therefore and make disciples”
  • be family-integrated— where children are cherished and included in the body of believers, through corporate worship and biblical teaching so that they may join together with their parents and an extended family of adult believers actively seeking to love God and others.

What We Believe

The Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testament, in the inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original documents and of final authority in all matters of faith and practice.

There is One God, eternally existent in three persons- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit- and He is all-knowing, all powerful, just, merciful, wise, unchanging, and gracious.

Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Son of Man- fully God and man- born of a virgin, perfect in His person and eternal in His being.

We beleive that mankind was created in the image of God and was originally without sin. Because of the sin of Adam and Eve, all of mankind are now sinners both by nature and by choice and are unable to remedy their own lost condition.

Jesus Christ died on the cross to rescue us from our helpless state- paying the penalty for our sin.

Jesus Christ rose from the dead on the third day, ascended into heaven, and now sits at the right hand of the Father as our Mediator.

The Church, consisting of God’s elect, began with the descent of the Holy Spirit on the believers at Pentecost.

By God’s Grace, those who trust in the work of Christ for their salvation inherit eternal life and are sealed with the Holy Spirit.

Because salvation is a work of God’s grace, believers are eternally secure and released from relying on their own ability and merits to earn acceptance from God and others.

The miracle of God’s grace frees believers to love as Christ loved, leading to unity, greater knowledge of Christ, maturity and the expression of gifting for the benefit of the church.

The Lord Jesus Christ will return soon, and there will be a resurrection of the saved to eternal life, and for the lost to eternal and conscious judgment.
