Our Vision Statement

Grace Church is seeking to be an authentic Christian community transformed by Jesus Christ to be transforming in the world.

Our Mission

Our mission is to be a sanctuary where people can position themselves before Jesus Christ for new life, growth, healing and service in fulfillment of both the Great Commandment and the Great Commission

Our Core Values
  • Grace Church is a community of followers of Jesus Christ. (John 14:6-7)
  • Grace Church is a community of Faith.  (Hebrews 11:1-2)

Sanctuary Policy

 Grace Church is committed to being a safe place within the larger community – a place free from neglect or abuse of any description; a place where physical, emotional, spiritual, or sexual misconduct or abuse will not be tolerated.

Grace Church seeks to ensure safety through its policies for security within the building, fire safety, supervision and procedures for all in-church activities, emergency procedures, and reporting on any incidents that may occur. Sanctuary Policy


Statement of Faith
  • The divine inspiration of the Bible - the divine inspiration and infallibility of Holy Scripture, as originally given, and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
  • The deity of our Lord Jesus Christ - the unity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the Godhead; the sovereignty of God in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgment.
  • The sacrifice of Christ - the universal sinfulness and guilt of human nature since the fall, rendering man subject to God’s wrath and condemnation; and redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Son of God.
  • The presence and power of the Holy Spirit - the necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit to make the death of Christ effective to individual sinners, granting them repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ; the indwelling work of the Holy Spirit in sanctifying the believer.
  • Individual Responsibility – each person is responsible for their own sins and therefore their own response of faith to the work of Jesus Christ on the cross and the invitation of the Holy Spirit to repent, believe, and be baptized. 
  • The priesthood of all believers – the gifts of the Holy Spirit are given to believers for the purpose of ministry and glorifying God. Ministry does not belong to a certain class of believer but to all who belong to Christ. All ministries proceed from and are sustained by the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
  • Christ centred community - the Church as the Bride of Christ is a community and a sanctuary; one where people should feel safe to experience meaningful relationships, with God through Jesus Christ, and with each other. When Christ calls us to Himself He call us to community.
  • The divine institution and mission of the church - the one holy universal church, which is the body of Christ, and to which all believers belong.
  • The obligation for evangelism - the responsibility of each believer to share in the promulgation of the free offer of the Gospel to a lost world.
  • The return of Christ - As Jesus Christ was physically raised from the dead, appeared to His disciples, and ultimately ascended to the right hand of the Father to continue His work of intercession on our behalf, so one day He will physically return again at the end of the age to judge the living and the dead.
  • The resurrection -  At the coming of Christ there will be a general resurrection in which all people living and dead will give an account of their lives; for believers it will be a resurrection to eternal life and glory with Jesus Christ, and for non-believers a resurrection to eternal death and separation from God.
  • Personal holiness – being a follower of Jesus Christ has moral implications for how we live our lives as His witnesses.
  • Standards of Sexual Conduct – God designed human sexuality not only for procreation but also for the joyful expression of love, honour, and fidelity between one man and one woman within the confines of marriage. These are the only sexual relations that biblical theology deems good and holy. Grace_Church Statement regarding Sexual Formation(July 2023)
